    Pros

    Most easy going people to work with.

    Cons

    They don't promote people without a degree. Shame. OJT is worth more.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone doesn't have a degree, doesn't mean they cant do the job. OJT is worth MORE than a mounted piece of paper on the wall.

    Pros

    CO-workers are ok and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Terrible management in accounting. Cut throat does not value employees who work hard. A lot of favoritism in accounting .)

    Advice to Management

    Values your employees quit playing favoritism and promote your employees from within. Felt like Management was bias to promote certain people they liked.

    Pros

    Many great hourly or contract employees. Just simple people trying to make a living with great personalities.

    Cons

    Company and management treats contractors like second class citizens/slaves. Management will lie to you and talk about you. No confidentiality.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the "God Like" attitude and how you treat contractors like disposable trash. Balance out the pay a little more......this is also a way of showing employee appreciation. BE CONFIDENTIAL.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits....but that is it.

    Cons

    If you enjoy being bullied and screamed at. If you like watching your ideas constantly shot down. If you like your manager throwing things at you and kicking walls and throwing temper tantrums then South Portland Maine Terminal is the place for you. Oh and dont waist your time with their HR department, they only cover up their hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    You will never stop bleeding employees until you fire your management here. Remember people do not leave companies, they leave terrible managers.
