    Pros

    Fast paced environment, promotion potential, brand recognition, challenging job daily, BSC

    Cons

    HR runs the company and handcuffs operations, HR never is in the terminals to practice what they preach, Do good one year and next year your goals are jacked up, weak supervisors due to low pay, no investments in the facilities, manage by exception

    Advice to Management

    Great job if you are competitive and are result driven. If you cant handle criticism or questioning this is the wrong job for you.

    Pros

    Great benefits after first year of work. The Union really cares about and looks out fot each individual. Amazing opportunity for those who need assitance to pay for college.

    Cons

    Hours are short. 3-4 hours a night and 5 if you're lucky. Almost impossible to get on day shift or full time without being with the company for a very long time. DO NOT WORK IN THE HUB.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who are best fits for the position, not those who have just been with the company longest.
