Formal application process uniform etc, then nothing. Would work sometimes for 3-4 weeks straight then its as if the place was a ghost town, then mysteriously reopened at odd times. hours were hard to get and when you got them you had to fight to prove you were there.

The company was different pre Katrina. Management was working together.The workers looked out for each other.The workers actually had fun and a sense of security and accomplishment in loading or unloading all kinds of cargo.Maintenance and operations communicated and worked together to get the job done.The equipment was much newer and better maintained.All mechanics were trained and very professional.The hours were long but nobody minded .

Costal Cargo is located on the river and I loved being on the water everyday. This was a labor job and it kept me busy. When doing inventory you have to put your hand on every piece you count to get it right. I learned how to operate a forklift and I could do any job out there the men could do. I also learned how to lay out a warehouse and set up 18 wheeler truck so that they are balanced and it all fits. I enjoyed this job but now I have kids and no weekends off and working pass dark. That wasn't what I wanted to work once I had children.
