Pros

*Paid every week.
*Fair management.
*Strong peer invovement and support.

Cons

*At the mercy of the elements.
*Some of the dock workers are so lazy that if the union clowns did not protect them, they'd be homeless bums.
*Disconnect between what is expected and what can be achieved. If the freight has not even made it to the terminal by a certain time, there is no way that it can reasonably be expected to be routed to another terminal in a timely manner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

*Keep fighting the union - the organization - not the workers.
*Giving the workers a pat on the back when it is deserved never killed anyone.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, union job security, great team of drivers to work with, pride of work, assigned equipment.

    Cons

    Management apathy, a week at a time on the road for open board drivers, difficulty in getting truck repaired in a timely fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between middle management and labor. Respect for labor. At least exhibit an attitude that local management cares about the company more than their own personal gain. An adherence to company policy at the local management level.

    Former Employee - Maintenance Coordinator  in  Cincinnati, OH
    Former Employee - Maintenance Coordinator in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Holland

    Pros

    The benefits package was great.

    Cons

    Within 2 months of accepting the job I was given the responsibilities of 4 other Maintenance coordinators who had been fired. There was no compensation for the additional responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees and remember that too many chef's spoil the soup.
    It does not make sense to have 3 managers over one employee

    Doesn't Recommend
