They don't care about anyone. Your just anotherNumber. Extremely stressful and toxic. Everyone is so stressed and to busy to even try to helpYou. If they don't like you they abolish positions and rehire with different job titles. Walking on eggshells everyday. Keep looking else where.
Pros
Cheap lunches
Cons
Stressful, toxic

Wages are competitive for the region and OT is plentiful at this moment in time. I currently have 2 scheduled days off per week. The employees are willing to assist with questions when asked. No such thing as a radio bully here... which is nice. Safety supplies/PPE is easily accessible via vending machine distribution system. Maintenance crew is willing to assist with any issues with machine and recommend corrective action when approached. If you are not inclined on working a shift longer then 10hrs. This may not be the right fit for you.
Pros
Overtime hours, work life balance.
Cons
Do not have any @ this moment.

Working here was a nightmare from day one. I wasn’t given proper training because everyone was always “too busy” with their own work, basically setting me up for failure from the beginning. The work load you are expected to do as one person is insane. Everything is extremely unorganized and documents go through too many people that things tend to get misplaced and lost. People are constantly getting fired in all departments with no real explanation. Many positions become abolished just as an excuse to terminate employees and then the jobs are filled in using a new title with the same tasks. Favoritism is a huge issue in this company. If there is an issue you will not be confronted by management but you will hear about it from other coworkers as management does not keep things private. From the start you will be promised things from HR (ex: 2 weeks off during winter holidays, yearly bonuses and raises) THIS IS A LIE. They close during the holidays depending how the days fall so this is not guaranteed 2 full weeks. This past year (in January before Covid) we were told our bonuses and raises would come in the spring, which followed with nothing. All in all this is a very toxic and childish environment to work in. I wouldn’t recommend working here to anyone.

Free parking

Talk about family oriented, want low turn over. Complete opposite, management can be temperamental and quick to blame others. High high turn over in starting positions. Low wage for task at hand.
Pros

The HR director is a used car salesmen, they treat their employees like faeces and try to cover it up by feeding you lunch that comes off your pay. They treat everyone like criminals and they rip off there contractors

Management doesn't care about their staff, if you complain to HR you just get criticized, expect you to work over time without compensation, extremely high turn around, you can basically do nothing right if you aren't in a manager position and are used as a scape goat. There is no respect for employees, whether you've been there for 10 minutes or 10 years. Don't waste your time with this company.

Treat employees unfairly. Not a family oriented company. Gossip mill. Everyone is two faced. Super high turnaround - and you find out why, quickly. No one has any idea what’s going on, ever. No organization.

If you like being worked to the bone, treated like a number and having seniority mean nothing...this is the place for you. They think throwing money at people solves any issue. They will promise bonuses to get you to do something and then try their best not to pay you (I know contradicting right?). There is a lot of labour involved in trucking...seems like they higher anyone with an AZ now..and when equipment is destroyed everyone's bonuses get affected...the cabs are really nice...but you will have to run if your truck isn't safe....and of you bring it up they will give you another unsafe truck...I honestly could keep going but dont want to waste anymore time

Typical day for a crane operator is to load trucks and railcars and sort material. Expect to be called on the radio every 5 mins and be micro managed within an inch of your life by the many white hats that drive around in vehicles all day waiting for you to make a wrong move or to simply change the original instructions you were given by someone else. Traffic in the yard is absolutely nuts so expect to be stressed out moving your large crane through tight spaces while trying to drive around truck drivers that you can't communicate with who are trying to also navigate through the sea of obstacles. Turn over rate is astronomical so make sure you don't wreck anything or damage a truck. Not showing up to work or being late will also get you fired. Your coworkers don't care about you and will sell you out to save themselves whenever they can, nobody will own up to their own mistakes as its always someones else's fault. On the bright side you will have a chef making you lunch everyday for a very low price that is taken off your pay cheque and at christmas the owner has raffles for big prizes. Good Luck
