This job pretty much offers job security, decent pay but not compared to other jobs in the same industry. There are benefit and they are expensive, no work life balance. I attempted to go to school and several bosses were unwilling to assist with scheduling. No work life balance at all and not enough time is given to complete work. unreal expectations.
If you want to advance and accept the responsibility there are numerous opportunities. Educational achievement is somewhat important yet the culture is similar to crabs in a bucket. So you will need to be cautious yet very professional.
Job Security, excellent salary with benefits
crabs in a bucket mentality and blocking for advancement
I had to ask union APWU to see if I could get a shift change because of pregnancy. It took a lil while but by Dr orders my shift was changed. It was difficult but the union made sure I received a shift change.
