    Pros

    It is a job but that doesn't mean it is a job worth going to everyday. This may be the standard in the transportation industry.

    Cons

    Management is totally disconnected from the operation. They have little oversight by Upper management. Racism is tolerated all around and this appears to be a corporate wide practice because "transportation isn't politically correct."

    Managers continually yell, threaten, use offensive language, and try to intimidate. Thick skin is essential in the industry but no one should have to walk in to a hostile work environment on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to pay attention to what is going on in the individual regions. The Northeast is being run by good ol boys and they don't have the companies best interests in mind. They are solely focused on themselves and their expense accounts. Local account/general managers who don't follow the ethics standards the company publishes need to be demoted or terminated. No one should lead by force! Sometimes the best way to improve something is to wipe the slate clean and start over with new and fresh minds.
