Co workers are nothing more than junior high school students in adults bodies.
If you are friends with management or the dispatchers, you will get special treatment. Said friends of management get to wear basketball shorts, come in with sagging pants and female friends of management get to wear sweatpants and stretch pants which reveal everything. Also, they get their problems addressed right away, while other hard working drivers get their problems swept under the rug. They stress professionalism, but they do nothing to enforce it.
The aforementioned friends of management and dispatchers somehow miraculously are able to move up in the company while other drivers who are clearly more qualified are not able to advance. No room for advancement.
There are no benefits, so if you decide to work here, be prepared to get a second job.
This is a union job, but be prepared to be stabbed in the back by union. If you had to go speak with management with a union rep, you'd talk with said rep about your situation, and then after you left the rep would call management on their phone and tell them EVERYTHING you told him, so they knew how to take you apart. The union will also jack up your monthly dues without warning.
The head Safety officer is a serious Bible thumper and he goes around preaching and somehow manages to avoid getting in trouble (hence the aforementioned special treatment).
What have I learned while being employed here? How to keep my mouth shut, and do not trust anyone.
Do NOT work here unless you are bottom-of-the-line desperate for employment.
High school mentality, favoritism, unprofessional bevaviour, co-workers, no healthcare, no room for advancement
