PSC was a large company that experienced great financial losses which resulted in massive lay offs. This was disappointing because early in my employment, I was laid off as were most of my associates that I worked with and the president who was the person who hired me.
One can not be afraid to get dirty at PSC. No matter your position. Your are expected to do what's needed. Working outside in every weather element helped me to stay focused under extreme distraction. Management expected production to stay at a profit even when short handed. My co-workers and I often played many roles. Balancing multiple departments often seemed tuff, but knowing how much profit the company made each day was rewarding.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Slippery Rock, PA – May 7, 2015
Fast paced environment. There is always something needing repaired so there isnt much down time. I made lasting friendships. Working outside in the winter could be challenging but you learn to make the best of it. I always found satisfaction in completing any maintenance especially when any changes made our jobs easier.

I very much enjoyed both of the people I worked directly with as well as the people I worked indirectly with via phone and email. Everyone was always very friendly and more than willing to help out someone who was learning the industry as I was.

Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Barberton, OH – November 11, 2014
Review previous days activities to make sure all shipments have been picked up and delivered. I learned more about dispatching, arranging shipments, bills of lading and computer software. The management of people was my highlight of the job everyone got along well and worked as a team. As with any company, you have to get to know your co-workers there likes and dislikes and pull from them there joys of working at the company and overlooking there dislikes. There was no real hard part about working at PSC, everyday was a new learning experience. The most enjoyable part of my day was working closely with my co-dispatcher in arranging and following through with dispatch procedures.
Crane Operator (Former Employee) – Chesterton, IN – July 3, 2014
You could always get overtime.. People were great to work with .. Management was very understand for most part. Salary wasn't up to other company's , but the benefits made up for it.. I always enjoyed going to work ...
I enjoyed working outdoors and problem solving every day situations. I learned how to operate many different pieces of equipment, using a torch, and millwright work. I also learned many different skills on and off the job site from co-workers who had many years of experience in the field. The most difficult part of the job had to be working outside in northeast Ohio year round. The most enjoyable part of the job was the accomplishment of completing a big project and seeing your hard work at its finished stage.
Lack in structure work environment, a lot of things happen that wouldn't be allowed such as on the job drug use and alcohol abuse by many employees running heavy machinery. Good pay and some good foreman.
