      Long Hours, Long Training Process

      29 Jun 2020 - Operations Supervisor Trainee in Dallas, TX

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits, friendly people, support functions are a potentially great career. Dock work is difficult, gritty, and not for light hearted. Good career opportunities if you are willing to move.

      Cons

      Long hours especially for supervisors. Work environment is hot, dirty, and dangerous on the dock if you aren't careful. Supervisors salaried are priced for 50 hours a week, so be expected to work 50 hours minimum. Some centers do NOT allow lunch breaks. Bad career opportunities if you are not willing to move.
