    Pros

    Great benefits and great pay for the work that you do. Fairly easy job if you are a dock worker. Stay here and get seniority and you will be practically set for life.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing. It's is hard to talk to some of them and it feels like they don't listen to you. The entire place runs by senority and they can sometimes act like they run the place. Hard work is never rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together

    Pros

    Good front line people who want the company to succeed

    Cons

    New Motto is do more with less and don't speak up, as it only makes you frustrated. We get what we pay for and in the last few years, only the top and front line drivers are being paid well.

    Advice to Management

    Staff for the advertised service and pay for the best vs. paying for unqualified that only get experience and move on.

    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.
