Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – June 9, 2017
Holland offered me a job 4 years ago and said the $11.90 starting wage was due because of the 2008/2009 recession and I see that's still their starting wage. Try Fed Ex, Xpo,Dayton or Old dominion. All of these companies start out at least $16 per hour
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Ringgold, GA – May 18, 2017
It has the Union. The Union hurts this company tremendously. Union has to much power!!!!!!! The Union needs to be abolished from the states and give power back to the companies to operate in the best for the company as a whole.

Line Haul Driver/ city driver (Former Employee) – Tomah, WI – July 16, 2016
Started off doing line haul and was grateful with the willingness of MOST of the drivers to help out at anytime. However, I was discouraged right from the start at the low morale and negativity that ran rampant through this terminal and every terminal that I went to. Clearly the buyout of Holland by YRC has left the hearts and wallets a little emptier of the drivers of this once top notch company, which I understand on one hand, but on the other wonder for the life of me, why the drivers put up with it! Switched to city to be home at night and WOW, what a racket! Most of the city equipment belonged in a scrap yard, more time is spent on the dock than actually fulfilling your job description as a delivery driver, agitated drivers. When you're hard at work on the dock dodging other forklifts, senior drivers won't let you load trailers and will snatch the forklift from you, so you're never really learning anything. Management doesn't communicate effectively, especially with new drivers, and will at the drop of a hat throw you under the bus and talk to you like you're a 5 year old. For what it's worth to prospective drivers, stay away, UNLESS, you're the type of person who will roll over and put up with anything! The only positive thing I had from this nightmare was it made me realize how great my former employer was, so I went back and have been smiling since.
Toxic work environment, junk equipment, small outdated facilities, agitated drivers, union entitlement
Fun work, good coworkers. Lots of time away from home.
Mobile welder machine opperater. (Former Employee) – Various – March 14, 2016
I only worked here for 6 months, when i was hired i was told the industry was growing and i could expect to be promoted within a year wit my experience. After a few months i was told that the contracts were ending and would not start again until the new year. I was home with no pay from thanksgiving until the second week of January. It wasn't too bad but i wish someone had warned me when i was hired on. after another few months of being told we could be laid off at any time and being told we needed to sacrifice to keep our jobs, i was laid off and told they have no idea when they might need me again. I was never made to feel very needed or appreciated my management and heard nothing but the same from coworkers. Probably for the best i go somewhere else, just would have been nice to stay there a while longer until i was ready to move on.
Landman (Former Employee) – Marietta, OH – February 9, 2016
I was responsible for contacting landowners and meeting with them to discuss and negotiate Oil and Gas Leases. I was one of the top 2 producers and was very well liked by the broker, client as well as landowners. I work well with little to no supervision and take pride in my work. I excel in comunicating with the customers as well as co workers and managers.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – February 5, 2016
Very friendly place to work where everyone got along. Bosses were open to suggestions and were very flexible as to hours worked. I learned a lot because you are handling multiple companies books who may use a variety of software and different methods to run their business.
Project Manager/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Ft. Worth, TX – January 29, 2016
I typically go into the Holland office about 3 days a week, and work from home the other two. It's nice to have that flexibility, and to be able to access my work computer from home. While at the office, most people either keep to themselves or keep to their particular team. At times that is nice, but it sometimes feel as if we are not all a team. They do have people on staff that are really knowledgeable, and will help with any questions you may have.
Dockworker (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – December 18, 2015
I would choose Fedex or any other freight company besides UPS freight or Holland because they over work you and don't pay enough FEDEX FREIGHT starts you off at $15 and within a year your earning $19hr and you get benefits $80 a month health, dental and vision insurance that's cheap!!!
