Mehh..
Dock Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Troy, NYJune 9, 2014
Pros: semi-laided back, friendly workers, fork lifts
Cons: temperature was outside weather, management, union fiasco
the job was temporary and they failed to tell me that at the time of hiring. for about 3 months straight i worked monday though friday 5pm til the work was done. managers didnt care much about keeping your job. Truck drivers were favored over us dock workers so they got work first. the most idiotic thing was that they demanded me to join the union or – more... i couldn't work. so i joined, 3 weeks later they told me there was no more work for me, IE: "let go". Why tell me to do something major like join the Teamsters if your plan wasn't to keep me. would of been a good job if i was on the forklift all day like the truck drivers and if they kept me. – less

Excellent career choice for professionals
Professional (Current Employee), Lebanon, PAApril 5, 2014
Pros: challenging, growth oriented, professional, highly skilled managers and colleagues, a positive working environment
Cons: too minor to mention
I chose New Penn over another job offer because I preferred the management, company environment, and growth potential described to me during the interview process -- and it was a great decision. I've found professional, highly skilled managers, collaborative and helpful colleagues, and a very positive working environment.

My position is both challenging – more... and enjoyable. This company has invested substantial resources in providing me opportunities to gain new skills. New Penn is also continually evaluating and working toward improvements. Although most companies have these goals on paper, I see action here.

No job is completely perfect, but I couldn't imagine being at a better company at this point in my life. I feel like I'm a valued part of a team with an important mission. I would recommend New Penn to any professional who likes a challenge, wants to grow, and values the integrity and choices of the management they work for. – less

I have been with New Penn since July 2013. I am a night shift biller/ time card recorder. At times it can be overwhelming but that's what keeps me going. I enjoy a challenge. Overall is a decent second job to supplement income for the time being.

The only good part of this job is leaving at the end of the work day.
CDL Truck Driver (Current Employee), Plantsville, CTJune 4, 2013
Pros: health benefits, overtime after 8 hours
Cons: yrc takes 15% of our pay before taxes, you will be on call for years, once your not on call anymore you will be stuck on the dock for years
I have been an employee at New Penn for many years and I still don't have a driving position. You will be working the dock for most of your career here. Newer employees that make it on to the seniority list start by making more money than the senior guys, which is BS.

When winter comes, expect not to come to work at all. New Penn does not care about – more... their employees at all and will use them when they need them. – less

Rabbitbrain – May 17, 2013

My husband works at the company in Camp Hill, PA. And it is just as the above posted said. For 3 years they cut their pay and put a hold on increases and made mention that they will get the money back after 3 years, but they wouldn't guarantee it. Guess what? The managers and supervisors of the company got their back wages but the dock workers and drivers didn't. Not only loss in wages but also cuts in insurance benifits. It is very unreasonable that this company does this to one place of buisness while other trucking companies under the same union is not imposing this wage cut! This union is very deceptive because there was a VOTE with the workers if they wanted this pay cut and the vote came out to be a big fat NO. The union agreed to cut the pay anyways even though the workers voted no. It is an underhanded union and I would look elsewhere for a job than work for New Penn in Camp Hill, PA.
