    I have been working at Louisville Jefferson County MSD full-time

    Pros

    Construction trade skill development, heavy equipment training and training provided to obtain a Commercial Drivers License. Solid hourly wages for jobs only requiring a high school diploma. Great for those who wish to have a career in construction, masonry, or plumbing as well as commercial driving heavy dump trucks. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    Seems to be not much advancement opportunity outside of the field you are placed within. Furthest opportunity available to achieve from someone in the field or unit employment, appears to be a supervisory role. It's a Union job, without a union contract for 3 years. Meaning no raises across the board for 3 years, and being at the complete mercy of upper management. Talks of privatization and depreciation of work force. The gap between unit employees, lower management, and upper management are unequal double and even triple for some positions.

    Advice to Management

    Intimidation is not a management skill. Find ways to understand or cooperate with employees and what is required to actually do the jobs they do. Show appreciation.
