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

    Pros

    The drivers that work here are usually understanding, and friendly. Almost every senior employee is usually willing to help, as long as you ask.

    Cons

    Management is inconsistent. Everyone has a negative outlook on the public. There is no appreciation within the division I work at. Management is also buyist as well as unfair. Get in the popular cloud and you can't do no wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Do something you don't have to. Go out of your way to actually prove you care for your employees. Be more fair, and stop having favorites. Everything should be handled according to the handbook, or the CBA. Don't pick and choose who is going to be given discipline, and let everyone fall under the same disciplinary or corrective actions.

    Pros

    Great temporary job when I was unemployed.

    Cons

    The amount of profanity used by management and staff is ridiculous. Discussions that should have been confidential are talked about on the floor. Inappropriate conversations were held on the floor between staff. Managers/supervisors caught up in sports and ignoring staff request for assistance. Not enough people so everyone is working overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Management really needs to be trained on what is appropriate behavior on the floor. They want a world class business, but do nothing to promote world class behavior within their management staff.

    Pros

    Decent pay, paid CDL training available

    Cons

    Unfulfilled promises ( assured there would be regular safety bonuses- after 7 months with no accidents, tickets, or anything DOT reportable, not one centavo in bonus money, PLUS entire crew was assured there would be raises after new contract with Amazon had been signed- MV continued to hold out on raises well beyond the ink drying and my resignation) below standard vehicle maintenance ( ancient buses forevermore breaking down before, during , and after routes; company fiercely reluctant to put money into most rudimentary and basic of maintenance issues even though brand new buses by virtue of new contract w/Amazon still months away), and brutal working conditions ( poorly lit yard & facilities, giant split between shifts which aggravate fatigue for drivers, and viscious Seattle-area traffic conditions which further exacerbate fatigue as well as previously mentioned maintenance problems, which only serve to compound fatigue when buses inevitably break down due to lax maintenance).

    Advice to Management

    Stop gambling with the lives of your drivers and passengers; hold yourselves to a higher standard & be proactive about maintaining your equipment . Compensate your employees- fulfill your promises, pay bonuses and give them the raises they deserve WHEN THEY DESERVE THEM.

    Pros

    No real pros about this place

    Cons

    The company really only cares about money, management will avoid you at all cost if you have an issue with pay time off. You have to Threaten to get the union involved in a lawyer and taking the court to get any outcome.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better , then dog s#*t on your shoes.
