Productive with funds
Driver/Operator (Current Employee) –  Austell, GA20 February 2018
The money is good when it comes to overtime but they say its 8 hour shifts but they call a mandatory hold over and make employees stay. I spend more time at work and would sometimes wanna go home instead of working until 4am.
Pros
Good money
Cons
Long hours, Bad off days

If you like High School
Contractor (Former Employee) –  Elwood, IL6 February 2018
This is a job you dont plan to stay at if you do they will eventually weed you out in one way or the other. They do not take safety as serious as they claim and the work environment is a constant rumor mill and back stabbing . with all work places there are the good and the bad and you just have to be more of an adult sometime and more often than not.
Pros
Abundant hours

Good starting point
Crane Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Austell, GA24 January 2018
If you are qualified and have life experience and are expecting to apply that here you will be strongly disappointed. It's a favorites and union based company, there are several supervisors and managers that are 19 and 20 years old but you have older senior employees with experience and education but it doesn't matter because they look at your time with the company NOT experience or education. Other than that the work is fast paced and steady although there is always talk about losing the railroad contract. Mechanical department is ran solid and has great employees and managers and I would recommend trying to get in that department above all.
Pros
Its a beginning railroad job with benefits
Cons
Its a union company and your manager maybe 19 because he started before you

Dangerous job, the working conditions could be extreme at time especially during the winter and rainy months. Job did not offer benefits and there was very low pay incentives.

Holster Trucker Driver (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GA12 January 2018
The motto: make your money before they get rid of you. I felt that I was very underpaid and over worked but every man in there has a family or priorities so we all just dealt with the circumstances

Sorry Place to work at
Employee (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA30 October 2017
This is a job for convicts which is the majority of the work force. Management doesn't care about anyone. They're just counting dollars for the number of bodies they hire. Turnover is outrageous. They hire new people every week because no one stays. They either get fired over drug use or the smart ones see they're getting used by these people wanting you to work 12 hours a day for the pennies that they pay you, and they split. Even though they're getting top dollar from Norfolk Southern. They have garbage equipment to work with. And employees on drugs handling heavy equipment. OSHA would have a field day if they showed up out there.
Pros
Health Insurance
Cons
Everything else

Fun enviroment
Driver/Groundman (Former Employee) –  Commerce, CA16 October 2017
I worked long hours. They will place you in any shift(day, swing, night). Management needs training here, they were not helpful to workers. The only enjoyable part was being with other employees.

Parsec is a good company to work for if you just like to do your job and be left alone. It is fast pace and can be dangerous if you do not fallow safety rules

Time consuming & Junk Equipment
Ramp Rat (Current Employee) –  Elwood, IL17 May 2017
The 707 union you are forced into was created by the company for the company. The union doesn't care about the employees. Equipment is always filthy and broken/rundown, but if you down a machine there's always another idiot that'll operate just to do so, without letting it get fixed like it should. Dedicate 12 hours of your life everyday to work because you can get randomly froze for mandatory overtime. Pay scale is the worst I've ever seen of a company that's supposed to be professional. The enforcement of radio chatter is non-existent so it's very difficult to communicate with supervisors and co-workers about the task at hand. If you are desperate and in need of a very easy job then this might be for you. 401k/time in a half/paid vacations/paid days off/small raise every year.
Pros
Management is Good
Cons
Long hours

Long hours mandatory overtime
Driver/Ground Man (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA29 March 2017
Parsec is a Labor intense company (groundsman and driving) run by persons in management with high seniority 20 years or more. Salaries are controlled by the Union and management. Long work hours often with mandatory overtime. No pay raises in the last two years. Turn over rate unfortunately is very high due to lower seniority (5 years or less) having no room for advancement.
Pros
There is most often work
Cons
Pay salary is low and not competitive
