  • I would just like there to be a better work/life balance and maybe some more training for supervisors.

The pay is great. I get a steady 40 hours a week and job stability. My coworkers are awesome. The job itself can be pretty rough but my managers do their best to make it enjoyable.

What I dislike about the company

I don’t like that there really isn’t any work:life balance. I am expected to be on call constantly.

I have had stable employment and opportunities to work overtime. They cant terminate employees at will.

They need to stop letting management employees Harras employees and the drive cameras should be removed from vehicles. Also, they allow reverse racism and sexism out of fear that there will be a lawsuit. They need to bring back pensions.
