Pros: Yard management makes the job lovable, relaxed & comfortable enviroment, small tight knit team of employees
Cons: Corporate has a hold from a far, they group all yards together tying Managers hands from making improvements to the yard, employees feel disposable
The yard managers were great to work with. They're direct to the point, and don't sugar coat much which I appreciate it. They encourage you to work independently or as team and don't micro manage you as long as you stay efficient. They provide lunch or bbq's periodically for various reasons such as so many days without injuries ect which makes us feel appreciated.
The small tight knit group of employees knows each other on first name basis and for the most part have a positive re pore with each other. They work well together ensuring a positive yard experience for customers and successful team. I enjoyed working with all of them. The people definitely make the best part of the job, The atmosphere is relaxed, joking and fun,
Although the bonuses and raises are little to be desired, they pay is decent and the benefits are good. A combination of all making my experience there a valued one.
