It was a nice stepping stone
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Joliet, IL – September 5, 2017
I was able to gain a lot of valuable experience in the various roles I held from part time inspector to operations supervisor to operations manager. The differences from terminal to terminal are so drastic that some of them feel like completely different companies. Politics play a huge role in this company, and unfortunately there are many people in management and leadership positions who simply have no business being in those roles. Short-sighted profit goals trump the importance of long-term sustainability and success as a company. Upper management is more concerned with share holder profits than they are with employee morale or even providing the best service possible to customers. In summary, I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to work for Holland and for the experience I gained in various leadership roles. There are many good people in the company, but the direction that executives where taking things at the time I left was not a good one.
