    I have been working at Shipco Transport full-time

    Pros

    A good place to learn the business. The people are friendly.

    Cons

    Lowest pay around, especially for the high amount of work . No end-of-year bonus or raise as promised during the interview. Company keeps hiring people from outside U.S. who always leave after a year and a half, then someone else comes in. Shipco does nothing to try to retain their employees. Have, also, noticed a culture of hiring/promoting people with similar backgrounds.

    I worked at Shipco Transport full-time

    Pros

    Close to freeway, funny general manager

    Cons

    Pay is too low for the global industry it represents. Close to McDonalds.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on management, that means analyzing the work of the leader in the department, yes that includes the supervisor itself, to ensure that the work environment is positive and friendly. The supervisor I worked under had a BFF in our small department and they would alienate themselves from the rest of us on a daily basis. It brought about a bad vibe within our department because it made us feel like it was high school all over again. A productive work environment comes from a happy work environment and that dosen't happen when there is favoritism and a lack of empathy and maturity from leaders.

    Pros

    Good benefits, hours, working conditions, and end of the week beers. Attire is business casual but some supervisors are militant about sandals.

    Cons

    Open favoritism in the office, depending on many aspects, including advancement for "party" girls. Degrading employees in front of everyone in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Take some HR classes

    I worked at Shipco Transport full-time

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, independent responsibilities. If you work hard, they will give you more responsibilities. You can move up quickly.

    Cons

    My one and only issue was the salary, no raises and if there was, it was very very minimal. Created a negative attitude in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work and pay employees higher salaries. It will in turn make employees work harder and more sufficiently which equals better business and industry reputation.

    Experience. Most staff and many middle managers very considerate.

    Cons

    No reviews for entire nearly 3 year employment, poor moral and very little consideration of employees satisfaction. Double standard for managers in following HR procedures. Compensation below average.

    Have some consideration for your employees and treat them with some respect.
