    Pros

    People are really nice and try to do all they can to satisfy the customer. You ask someone to do something and it happens. You don't have to go through a lot of red tape or follow-up begging someone to do the right thing. People do what they say.

    Cons

    Car reimbursement for business use could be better

    Advice to Management

    keep paying competitive wages

    I worked at Holland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Health insurance.

    Cons

    Holland only looks to fixing issues on a very short term basis. Quarterly emails showing huge amounts of money being given to officers while they deny raises to all employees for 3 years straight and cut pay to drivers.

    Advice to Management

    Work to fix the issues for good instead of just putting a bandaid on the problem. Stop sharing the information about the millions of dollars you are giving to officers each quarter. Especially when you cut pay to drivers or announce no raises. Really kills the moral.

    Pros

    the company provides free health insurance. there is plenty of overtime pay. it is a union job, meaning good job security and able to appeal write ups.

    Cons

    you work long hours, up to 14 per shift. seniority bidding for positions so little choice of what you do for the first few years. poor equipment, most are kept barely running by an overworked garage department
