Good job security, to many issues management vs union
Journeyman Diesel Mechanic (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 27, 2014
A good day/bad day type of place. Some good job tasks and some that were less than desirable. A maintenance shop, dirty, greasy and oily! One has to control the work situations, not situations control you (takes time to learn, not all do). Management was not overbearing, usually kept to big issues. The co-workers were OK. Some needed to realized why they had a job and do it! Too much favoritisim. Many hard parts to the job! Hot, heavy work. Worked in all kinds of weather on the road, tire chains and snow. I enjoyed working on my own without supervision. I was able to plan the job out and complete tasks in a timely manner.
