Dock Worker (Former Employee) – Conley, GA – March 22, 2018
When I started to work at USF Holland in 2003, it was a great place to work. The Pay($16 p/hr) was more than I was making at Full Time Job. We received a raise every year. In 2007, I moved to Georgia and started working at the biggest terminal in the Southeast, the Conley Georgia location. By this time the company had been sold to Yellow Freight. Changes were made as expected but the biggest one was the pay. The took away almost $5 of our pay. and their were never raises for the part time(casuals) people. Yet the work level never decreased, it actually increased. They then started wanted you to come in late and leave later because the full timers would all leave at exactly 11pm. If you had to have a job, it is ok but they are no where close to being competitive with the pay and they are aware of it.

Holland has some great employees that make you proud to be a part of the company but overall the union backs the employees that don’t want to work and management caters to them while the good employees get more dumped on them. Instead of management making the ones not doing anything work they add more work loads to the ones already buried in work. Then to top that off management praises the ones not doing anything and ignores the employees working hard.

The pay is okay, not great for the number of hours worked. Safety is looked down upon and mocked openly. Most employees have worked there long enough to feel a sense of entitlement and throw little baby screaming tantrums regularly. I once worked at a summer camp for children with mental disabilities, this job prepared me most for working at Holland. The management doesn't accept responsibility for anything and turns employees against each other. If you like being around dangerous angry people, you have found your home.
you will make enough money to pay bills
Awful equipment, employees drive 40mph on the lot, dangerous forklift operators
My manager was very kind and understanding. The work environment is very calm and peaceful, Everyone is in their office doing their work and every once in a while someone would come out and just talk. The work load was fair and fairly simple.
My typical days at work I had to report income cargo to customers, I learned invoicing, workers culture was enjoyable, the hardest part was unsatisfied customers, the most enjoyable part of the job was loading dates.
Management and employees work as a team and care for each person.

My time with Holland was wonderful I loved all the jobs that I did and chances to advance. The people genuinely care about each other and will stand up for each other. I learned many great skills during my time with Holland and I would go back in a heart beat.
USF is a great university. They can provide opportunities at different levels for their own students to get experience in their fields of interest. They have a great research center with Moffit institute. I worked for the college of electrical engineering as the teacher for Electronics lab. I had the opportunity to develop the curriculum for this lab.

Back when the recession hit they opt for this so they wouldn't shut down, and its stuck. you get paid 18.57 and hour, overtime after 8 hours a day, every day. Max 60 hours a week.
Dock Worker (Current Employee) – Ringgold, GA – January 24, 2018
I think it's okay for college students and people who hate customer service. The hours go by fast when there are trailers to unload or the hours can crawl if you are waiting for trailers to arrive. I liked how there is no customer service aspect to it, but some of the coworkers complain or have short fuses most of the time. The job can get dangerous. The floor can get slippery and you could slide off the docks and people can drive like maniacs and crash into you. I

Pay is very good for a part time job. Take home pay is about the same as some full time jobs in the Saginaw area. Paid time off is accrued weekly which is nice. Everyone at this location was pretty easy to get along with. Only issue working here is starting out part time.
Great paid time off, even for part time workers, good pay, coworkers and management are very easy to get along with. Direct deposit and paid weekly
Starting out part time. Working in the evening and would rather work a day shift.

Office Administrator (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 16, 2018
I liked it. You gotta be ready for men to stare at you if youre a woman but overall it was relaxed and i loved it. the office manager doesnt play any games when it comes to getting your work done so if youre willing to work she has your back. there is plenty of room for advancement if you work for it.
