Poor Managment at the Riverside terminal
Dockworker (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – March 6, 2019
I worked there for almost two years. When I initially started there was an appreciative atmosphere where everyone seemed to love their jobs. We worked together and got what needed to be done, done. Fast forward a few months and management changes. Work piles up and daily there were meetings about mandatory OT and mandatory 6 days. During these meetings management would berate every employee for any millisecond of idle time and threaten to terminate anyone for even having their phone in their pockets.
Despite this negative culture at the riverside terminal, I endured and got paid. They pay very well. However one manager in particular would always find a way to write me up, despite it not being his department. He would go out of his way to find something and write me up for things previous supervisors and managers didn't write me up for. Then one day while asleep for work, the ATM called me and suspended me without giving me a reason. I called back and pleaded for an explanation and received nothing until I was called and terminated without an explanation.
To make a long story short. You will work, and you will hustle and you will get paid but they seemingly decide to clean house on the regular. I've seen it happen multiple times before it happened to me. The least they could have done is talked to me about why I was terminated. I gave a lot of my time and energy to this company and all for an abrupt termination over the phone and with no explanation whatsoever.
Good pay, great coworkers
favoritism, excessive OT, destructive attitudes from managament
