Dockworker (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – November 11, 2018
Most days as a dock worker are spent working with co workers to get trailers unloaded and put onto the correct trailer on time. This is a great place to learn how to really manage your time and to be efficient. Co Workers are really nice and Management is understanding except if you need a schedule that is to be a little bit flexible. Being a dock worker is easy to get into, on the downside is that it is a very fast paced work environment and can be really stressful at times.
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – November 5, 2018
Faced paced environment. Very demanding position of the operations supervisor, however overcoming challenges were very rewarding. Dress to the weather. Very cold in the winter and hot during the summer.
Am Lead / Dock Foreman (Former Employee) – Pasco, WA – October 30, 2018
was given the position of Am Lead/Dock Foreman, Had to learn the computer system from scratch or very little training. Did my best until I had an injury to my left foot. Was out of work for about 8 weeks. Upon returning to work, it was a mutual agreement that I leave the position with USF Reddaway.
Able to show skills on computer and on the Dock area.
CMA (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – October 22, 2018
This interesting question refreshed my memories. Most days, I got in early so I could get emails done and be ready for the project team meeting. On a typical day, we had a late change from the client to deal with. I got Roger to do a quick technical feasibility analysis whilst I went to see the Account Manager. She explained how important it was, so I reviewed the plan and found a way to get the change in without harming the critical path. The team weren't too happy to have to squeeze in another change, but when I explained how helpful it would be to the customer they got down to updating the specification and use cases. I bought in pizzas to keep them all happy and to let us steal a bit of space at lunchtime. By the end of the day, everything is back on track.....
I have learned a lot from that incident
I had to spend alot of time to explain the things in front of my friends
P&D Truck Driver (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – October 13, 2018
USF Holland was a sister company to USF Reddaway when I was employed by them. They both operate in a similar way. A person interested in the trucking industry could do well seeking employment from either company.
LTL Driver (Current Employee) – Tomah, WI – September 22, 2018
The management is completely worthless. They don' t know how to route and play favoritism is you kiss up. They pay is less than the competition and you will be required to work up to 14 hours a day. They don't care about your life or family. The union is a joke and all they do is collect your union dues once a month. The only positive thing I can say about working here is the company paid health insurance.
Saw Operator (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 7, 2018
Holland is a great company to learn about the railroad in different aspects about the business production wise fellowship in with other associates who are experienced to give proper information to get the job done correctly.
Fast paced culture, disorganized hiring process. Company holds a lopsided approach to disclipline
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Holland, MI – September 5, 2018
A strong company, has been around for over 80 years. A few hard working folks left at Holland which still make this company what it is today. The company is very lopsided in its approach to discipline, it will let its drivers get a way with (murder) multiple accidents within a couple of years, disorderly conduct, excessive absenteeism, etc. while firing a supervisor (at a drop of a hat) for taking a co-workers lunch from the refrigerator, slight exaggeration, but you get the point. Lastly, A couple of the Department Heads (located at the main office in Holland Michigan) are completely disenfranchised from what is (actually) going on at the terminal level.
