    I worked at Bollinger Shipyards full-time

    Pros

    Best hours, Mon-Thur- 6am-5pm, Friday's 6am-11am, great pay, great group of people from all over to work with, give chances to move up, Supervisors are great to work for, well some!

    Cons

    When it's HOT, its HOTTER in the Shop, and when it's COLD, its COLDER in the Shop!! Long hours but they fly by sometimes, cellphone and The Hits policy is the most ridiculous of all!!!! If you don't want a hit, you have to call the Call- In line to be sick and excused the day before you get sick like at 5:01pm when you knock off, but what if you get sick during the night? Well your screwed, its a Hit!! It's absurd who has ESP and will know they gonna be sick the day before

    Advice to Management

    Stay off the workers case, they will get so much more work done, treat everyone equally!

    Pros

    The company have good benefits. They are very organized. If you have a problem with something they are very good with handling the situation asap.

    Cons

    If you are hired there through a contractor, they dont care about you. You are basically a slave to them. They have a huge problem with using profanity. Even though I am white, I can see they dont like black people at all. Very sad!!!

    Pros

    Salary is based on your job performance not the likes or dislikes of management !
    Everyone in management may not know you personally but, they know of your work place and your work ethic!

    Cons

    Some members of management have seemingly lost sight of where they come from!
    Part accountability needs to be looked at!! Better to request a new part than to take the part from the next boats parts pallet

    Pros

    Bollinger shipyard is a good place to work ,because they are very professional and take pride in there work preformed . They also take pride in the safety of there workers, while on the job. They give you the opportunity to advance in the field you work in, by aknoledgeing and rewarding the employees for there preformance, by praise and the possibility of stepping up another level in your field and making more money. Bollinger also shows appreciation to there employees, by having the yearly picnic and including there familys.

    Cons

    The only issue I had at Bollinger was with a co-worker and the lack of respect, but it was not Bollinger itself, Ias soon as I spoke to someone it was approached and handled. That was very much appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    I am a very commited and dedicated worker, and am very much about production ,and hope that i get the chance to advance to leadership one day , because I truly believe production comes from the way the workers are treated and respected, and I would be proud to be part of making sure that production is achevied and goals are met to meet bollingers expectations for the customers, with the best Quality possible.
