Fast progression depending upon your ability

Everything was based on seniority which made vacation picks horrible until you were there for a few years

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fearless leaders in law and labor departments. Qualified managers. Review of Referenced qualified resumes. Time-tested routine tasks and expectations to complete. Submittal of work performed, so better oversight. Too much time wasted. No cell phones in offices.

What I like about the company

35 year relationships, appreciation for my work.

What I dislike about the company

Unfairness of promotions of unqualified cronies. "Policy " to avoid, but they get around it. The abuse of attendance policies. They need lawyers who aren't afraid to challenge the interpretation of some laws and unions.
