    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 have been working at Holland full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees be treated like adults.The terminals get along fine without you.

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

    Pros

    Competitive Salary, that's all I can say. Nothing else pro about working at Holland.

    Cons

    Upper management constantly spending money that Holland does not have. Then they leave and a new management comes in and does the exact same thing.

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

    Pros

    Mon-Friday schedule. Great health care. $400 family deductible.

    Cons

    20% underpaid in our area. Old equipment, 70% of all trucks have well over 1 million miles and are very dirty on the inside. We need 15 new forklifts Not "1 that's on the way". Our dock is 1/2 the size it needs to be. The size of the dock kills productivity, probably adds an extra 20% of time per night.

    Advice to Management

    Switch Holland in Greensboro to YRCs dock in Kernersville. We average 500 bills per day and YRC averages less than 150 bills per day but their dock is 5 times larger. Replace at least 5 forklifts immediately. They will pay for themselves in 3 months. We operate at 93% P&L under these circumstances, could operate at 88% or better if these 2 issues are addressed.

    Pros

    Union job so if you like to call off make sure you get Fmla, easy to get just get it signed by a doctor m-f job easy work but fast paced most guys want to get in and out quick as possible free insurance but takes about 5 months to get it it’s a process

    Cons

    Dock boss at night likes to yell a lot , poor equipment takes months when hired to get off the dock and start driving high call offs makes your day longer poor communication Union is horrible paid off union works for company not you never know what time your getting off

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Holland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good runs. Pick your own route. You decide how you want to run your route and load your freight yourself. Health insurance is second to none!

    Cons

    Equipment is bad and not enough workers to keep up with the freight demand. Pension fund is going broke so no retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Increase driver pay and give a retirement and the drivers will come. Having full time dock workers would be a massive mistake. Just make the drivers proud to be Holland. Instead of giving tons of money to the people at the top, give it to the drivers. They are the reason the company even exists. Simple. Younger people care about what they make per hour.
