Current Employee - Train Dispatcher in Greenville, SC

Pros

Great pay and benefits, once you are finished training
Lots of opportunities to advance due to retirements

Cons

-Management is inconsistent in their expectations
-You will never EVER hear you have done a good job, but you will catch hell any time you make a mistake
-Punishments for mistakes are inconsistent, what gets one person fired, will get another a slap on the wrist
- Training pay is only $120/day, barely enough to live on
- EVERYTHING is based on seniority, regardless of ability to perform your job
- it is a 24/7 operation, you will work holidays/weekends/nights
- There is a very old school mentality, there is very little to no respect for younger employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand that the younger employees are the future of your company, and if you don't hold on to them, and respect their opinions, you will lose them.

    Former Employee - Tax Intern in Roanoke, VA

    Pros

    The people are amazing. They are nice and helpful. It felt like a family.
    They allow you to work on a lot of different things so you can learn as much as possible in your time there.
    Always willing to help and answer questions.

    Cons

    They don't have an intern "program" so sometimes it takes a while to find a project for you to work on.
