      Extreme Racism You can easily understand if you just look at the placing of people You can find hardly any ENGLISH guy in picking which is the toughest And You can hardly find any Asian in marshalling which is easiest Also the worst part is that the managers are also supporting the arrogance and ignorance against the Asians Also the cross training on different MHEs which are easier that picking are mostly given to ENGLISH They never give holiday - so no family time

      Pros

      Fair to the majority of employees - can expect a bit too much re work/life balance. Good T&Cs, good rates of pay

      Cons

      Can expect a bit too much re work/life balance. I need to do 20 words to continue my research - so the rest it really just so that I can carry on :)
