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

    Pros

    Good people to work with.
     Noticed many of the normal type work issues that occur but other than that good place to be at.

    Cons

    Uncontrolled Union activities and contracts, which would make being profitable an uphill struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the time there.
    I would suggest looking at the contracts and upholding the disciplines of the drivers more, which would help with profits.

    Pros

    Pay is competitive. Great benefits. Good home time. Good reputation. Good miles. Freight volume is consistent. Low turnover. Stable paychecks. Job security due to the Union.

    Cons

    15% give-back on pay since '09..."except for non-union management". Aged equipment although it is improving...non-management personnel morale suffers due to give-back. Too many new hires when it doesn't seem to make sense.

    Advice to Management

    A better attitude would go a long way... Respect for the Drivers who make this company a success is a must!

    Pros

    Great insurance through Michigan Teamsters

    Cons

    Newer employees are routinely told to "pick" a tractor from a group that has already been red-tagged for safety violations. It appears the Detroit terminal has a REAL PROBLEM.

    Advice to Management

    You can't count on drivers ignoring safety regulations, just so you can get freight delivered.
