I have been working at Oak Harbor Freight Lines

Pros

Great pay, and benefits. company cares. In spite of all the mud slinging from the union if you look outside oak Harbor where else are you going to get 21.00 per hour with full family medical and a company paid for pension. I make enough to allow my wife to stay home and raise our kids and we still have enough to have fun.

Cons

part of the company are represented by teamsters union. the drivers don't get it that the teamsters fight with the company is all about maintaining thier trust funds, it really has nothing to do with what is good for employees. if the union could keep their trust funds in the contract by throwing the employees under the bus they would. fortunately the owners care more for their employees than the union does.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get the best deal you can in the negotiations. educate the employees on what the union representatives are really like.

    Pros

    they have good equipment but it comes out labor paychecks

    Cons

    management and lack of respect from owners. If it was'nt for the labor unions this place would be a joke. Oak harbor was a very respectable truck carrier and people were proud to work for them. Nowwe are the joke of the industry. The workforce is so fed up with these owners that they hate even coming to work now. Alot of people put alot of hours in everyday, they sweat oak harbor and bleed oak harbor. And by the end of the day you have to hear what you could have done better or what the owners want to take for us next

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management is nothing but a bunch of union breakers. They dont care about how long or hard you work everyday. Its all about numbers. And from the owners down, the lack of respect for good labor is zero to none and that is sad

    Pros

    Competative pay and that's about it.

    Cons

    Disrespectful towards employees. Have used the term "the dog wags the tail, not the other way around".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are not very clear on what is expected of the employees, and are often hypocritical.
