Company will only will work with you if it benefits them.
MRT (Current Employee) – Houston,TX – July 7, 2013
A typical day at work consisted of answering trouble calls on bridges, pca's and conveyor belts. Co-workers are ok depending what shift you worked on. The hardest part of the job was dealing with veteran co-workers who been there longer and know about the equipment whereas being the new guy with the skills but not having the experience. Alot of politics come into play where the manager and lead are fishing buddies all the way to a kind of racial syndicate (15 whites in top paying positions, 3 hispanics as general maintenance, 4 blacks one on each shift if possible, there were 4 shifts) Management sucks, they are not willing to work with schedules unless it will benefit them and if you are trying to make yourself more marketable;i.e. going to school, renewing of licenses, continuing education for jetbridges.etc that kind of action is frowned upon. Rather than help they would rather tear down your character and give bad reports to other sites to keep you where you are.Thats just what I see on a daily basis and I've been there for 2yrs now. it is what it is
good days off, learn alot
politics, no advancement unless the lead tells the manager its ok, bad benefits, no communication, racial syndicate
