      Pros

      If you're looking into getting into the transportation industry, they will seem to hire anyone. You will likely sit in the safety lane before you go into the shop though. Straightforward schedule, occasional overtime.

      Cons

      Pay is lower than average for shop personnel in the industry. You'll be lucky to make over 20.00 an hour. Yearly raise is 3%, so if you're stuck at 16.00 per hour (which is the starting wage there) you will only get a 48 cent raise after a year of employment. They do no random testing, I observed multiple people using drugs, who would work on heavy equipment like trailers as they were under the influence. Also be sure to be on your P's and Q's one slip up, and you could be facing termination. Organizational structure was weak, seemed that lead tech and management positions were filled by a friend basis, and not by who was qualified or believed to be qualified.
