      Not equal or fair

      Pros

      Steady income and good insurance

      Cons

      No matter your worth (license) you get paid the same as someone who does a lot less. Topped out (6 years +) grade 2 means EVERYONE. $24.01 an hour is what you get paid to rotate 12 hour shifts; every 4 weeks, after years and years of commitment to the company. Us long haulers don’t even have a choice on what shift we prefer. We are forced to flip flop. Covid really proved their priorities and they let us know....NOTHING. We were always a month behind a lot of large scale companies comparable to HCC. It’s the HCC tradition; if it’s not broke, ignore it.
