Suggestions for improvement

  • We have a Culture Committee that must ask permission and raise its own money to provide fun activities instead of being funded by the company

What I like about the company

I've been able to work from home when necessary though as an hourly employee no overtime is allowed even when busy and needed.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of communication between upper management and the rest of the company in regards to company/business status

Company Culture

Constant crisis environment. Very stressful. Management is rigorous to the point of being excessive; for example, you MUST park backwards in the parking lot at the HQ. If you don't your job can be threatened. Really silly rules.

Support from management

Management directs, not supports. Goals are arbitrary and to meet these goals, management maintains an attitude of perpetual crisis.

Teamwork

Coworkers tend to support each other very well

Freedom to work independently

Employees are micromanaged to the extreme. There is no autonomy.

Internal Communication

Employees are constantly told that finances are bad, that costs must be cut to stay open, even when the company is ahead of projected goals.

Gender Equality

Very few women in field jobs - I can't remember any actually. Some women get treated very well, others get dumped on. HR doesn't seem able to correct this.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I saw no issues with this

Career Development

in some departments I saw this happening.

Overall compensation for your work

Wages are tight until you try to leave, then you're offered more. Company has insane policies regarding what you can get reimbursed for meals and travel expenses, and you must share hotel rooms with other employees even if you don't know them.

Office / Work Environment

Working environment at headquarters is very good

Environmental Friendliness

Never heard it discussed or considered.

Work-Life Balance

HQ people can maintain a balance. Field people have no balance whatsoever. It's the nature of the railroad industry.

Company Image

Some employees are extremely loyal, many others do not have a good image of the company. In the industry, RR people view Hulcher as an expensive but necessary evil - they refer to Hulcher sales people as "Hulcher Vultures"

Job Security

People tend to disappear with little warning.

Handicapped Accessibility

I think the building is very accessible

Workplace Safety

Company does push safety as a cost cutting measure

Challenging Work

The work is very challenging

Inclusive / Diverse

never discussed. Predominately white workforce, with a good mix of male/female at HQ

Suggestions for improvement

  • Nothing will change without a complete change-out of management, and that can't happen because of the knowledge and experience needed to perform this company's work.

What I like about the company

The co-workers were very friendly and easy to work with.

What I dislike about the company

Silly, extreme management oversight. Many people required to file daily, weekly, monthly and annual reports so an incredible amount of time is lost for productivity. Culture is stressful, strict, autocratic with policies that are frustrating to the extreme. Company doesn't promote reward programs . . . you shouldn't be rewarded for doing good work - it's your job! That kind of attitude.
