Terminal Operator (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – June 3, 2014
Cons: poor management, poor workers, horrible company
This place is a horrible place to work for. No leadership whats so ever. Management is a joke was wrote up two times while in training for no reason at all. Was lied on by the foreman several times. Place is a death trap. Racism is not hidden. There is a strong dislike for blacks. Your will be picked on if your new. This place is ran by a bunch of dummies. – more... Trust me the $26.79 they pay is not worth it. – less

Pros: vending machines were great, co-workers were nice and taught me a lot of good information.
Cons: short breaks, hours seemed longer when all the work was done and there was nothing left to do.
After working as an intern for Kinder Morgan, I learned about safety, the 6 core principles, observing employees driving DRI trucks and filling out JHA's. The hardest part of the job was getting all of the work done and not having anything to do to keep yourself busy while the time went by. The co-workers were fun to be around, cared a lot about our – more... safety and were there to answer any question that I had to ask. The most enjoyable part of the job was the work that I did do because it made the time go by faster. I learned how to use a fire extinguisher the right way and the PASS method (Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep). Lastly, I learned how to use a crane to pick up coils and load them onto trucks, that was the best part of the job to me. – less

The most enjoyabe part of the job was interacting with the customers and feeling good about solving their problems and the companies in regards to resolving issues that could have caused open items on the A/R and A/P reports.
