Not a single day without stress
Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJanuary 19, 2018
This company lacks team players, it's every man for himself. Because of this lack of management the stress levels are high. Drivers are treated unfair, therefore lack the desire to run for the business and instead run for themselves.

Toxic work environment
Dispatcher/ Customer Service (Former Employee) –  West Chester, OHOctober 28, 2017
This organization is in a constant state of flux. Lack of Management and leadership has damaged the brand of the company. Communication is poor, expectations are not set thus it's hard to attain goals that you do not know what they are. The most enjoyable part of the job was the dedication my co-workers-peers had to the success of the business

Not very well organized at that time. Morale was very low and management pretty much dis-regarded any input from staff, no matter how productive or efficient. Left for better position
Pros
Great co-workers, location close to home.
Cons
Poor leadership, in ability to listen to constructive input

Lead Crane Operator
Crane Operator (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYJune 26, 2015
Unload and load trains for Norfolk Southern. I learned the ins and out of the inter-modal industry. I learn how to mange a crew and get the best performance out of an individual. I am/was supposed to become apart of management who are also required to pitch in when the work load is heavy. The hardest part of the job is the long Hour and inconsistent train time. the flexibility was the most enjoyable part of the job.
