    I have been working at Holland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely happy with the experience and opportunities extended to me working with Holland. The company culture is amazing and company leadership is extremely supportive of the workforce. I have enjoyed working with Holland over the years.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement can be limited depending on the type of work you do for Holland. There seems to be a disconnect between Holland corporate and terminal operations. The disconnect is not due to lack or concern or interest by upper management but just the separation between corporate and overall terminal operations.

    I worked at Holland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people that I worked with were really good people. They propped the terminal up and carried a lot of dead weight. Made a lot of good contacts in the worker bee ranks that supported us and what we were trying to accomplish.
    Paid my bills every Friday.
    If you can land union protection, it is impossible to get terminated.

    Cons

    On the opposite end you have some of the most hostile, nasty, unprofessional people that you can work with. They lie, cheat and steal from the company as much as possible and are protected by the union. When held accountable, their mantra is "the union will get my job back" and they are RIGHT. It undercuts all of the local management and their efforts to make it a better workplace.
    The company continues to live hand to mouth and that can be seen in the buildings and equipment. Not that it matters, because a lot employees have no pride of ownership and destroy anything nice or new.
    Lastly, the company calls their employees "labor" for a reason, because that is how they are treated. They are a commodity. I have come to the conclusion that relationship has been built over MANY years of Union/Company relations. Nothing is going to break that tension.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure. I have tried to discuss this with upper management and was told "to get thicker skin". When I tried to discuss absenteeism issues I was told "it comes with the suntan". When I discussed lack of support from MO, I was told "yeah, that is just how my people are".
    What they have done is ran off good workers and concentrated a group of people that are so sour or lazy that can't survive anywhere else, so they stay.
    You certainly have your hands full when it comes to managing into the future. With the new contract, I am not sure how you will be able to afford what is "owed" to the drivers and still stay afloat. I guess keep calling he same plays as you have and see what happens?

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

    Pros

    Union pay and benefits

    Cons

    Horribly incompetant management, little to no training, constant fighting among co workers with no recourse or reprimand and very undesirable hours.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to suggest since the union protects and defends this type of behavior.

    Overtime after 8 hours, close to home, health care coverage

    Cons

    Air quality in terminals is full of black dust (rubber, carbon, and asbestos), management treats you like a child who can't make their own decisions, management always looking for a reason to fire employees.
