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

    Pros

    Terminal Mgmt. was great to work for as well as the local union. Relaxed atmosphere with great co-workers.

    Cons

    Working in the elements can be difficult at times, but worth the pay.

    Advice to Management

    The relationship between mgmt and the union appear to be one of mutual respect- which results in not only a great place to work, but the ability to provide exceptional customer service..keep up the good work!

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities at Holland but you have to work for them.

    Cons

    Favoritism is very obvious at the corporate office. Too many chiefs.

    Pros

    Assigned equipment Teamsters Union contract for pay and benefits diverse assignments great equipment good management all around five stars!

    Cons

    Owned by a parasite Corporation "YRC". Was that too strong? Well if it weren't for the good people wotking at Holland the corp would've devoured all Holland's assets.

    Advice to Management

    This company has been here since 1927. Stick with Holland's core values. Treat customers well and treat employees well. Dont treat emploees as YRC would have you do. Moral will go up, grievances go down. We are not robots as YRC would have you believe. Go back to the Coopers way and chill. Give our grandchildren an opportunity to work here. Holland is a blessed company.

    I have been working at Holland full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    Great company to work for and great people to work with. The Service we provide our customers is a priority to the organization and provides a sense of pride within the employees for the company which they work.

    There are a challenges being competitive in the driver market based on contractual obligations, however, in many other areas including benefits where Holland stands above.

    I worked at Holland full-time

    Pros

    Good group of guys to work with. Very helpful to the new guys. Free benefits, Insurance was outstanding. Pay was awesome when you could work. They pay you for everything, from fueling to hooking your trailer.

    Cons

    They don't care if you work or not. If you don't have seniority be ready to stay home for weeks at a time. Or laid off about 1x a year for about 1 to 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your drivers. Corporate why do you hire people that you know your gonna lay off in a month or two. We are people with families to take care of. We come in when you need us and then as soon as things slow down. You could care less about us. Your drivers have your back and get the loads there. You should have their backs.
