I also worked for Parsec for almost 2yrs. Worst job Ive had. Place is ran by a bunch of idiots ad asholes. One night during the "safety meeting" manager Dominick Tramino tells the guys "this is the best its gonna get for you high school dropouts and get people." They hire anybody, don't give proper training, union ain't worth shit and nobody knows where the union dues go. It was good for the experience of being around tains but thats about it. Leaving there and applying at a class 1 railroad was th best move I could've made.

Me personally, I say man up and stop gossiping on the web like girls do on Facebook. If any of you are man enough to call out names here, be man enough to say it in person. As far as working for Parsec, any job is what you make it. If you're loading trains or flipping burgers, there are protocols to follow. I'm pretty sure most of those individuals that are crying here are the ones who stayed in trouble and they just got tired of your crap and let you go. NOBODY and I mean absolutely NO ONE gets fired on 1st offenses on ANYTHING unless it was deemed illegal, or deliberately reckless. This is the easiest job I ever had! All you have to do is basically come to work and stay safe. How do you mess that up? The 2 A's are what gets people fired here.... "ACCIDENTS and ATTENDANCE". And last time I checked, NO employer wants a liability who doesn't show up to work. As far as the union goes, that's also "what you make it". Perfect example, you have so-called union brothers talking crap (anonymously like cowards) on this website about other union brothers. And with that said, NO union can change the character traits of any individual. So for all you crybabies complaining about how messed up the job is, make sure you include in your pointless rants that most employees there are getting paid $19.15hr, medical benefits, 401K & severance plans, 4 weeks vacation, 5 sick days, 5 personal days, and all you can eat overtime when you need it. Not to mention that you get 7 un-excused no questions asked absences, and God knows how many tardies and early quits they allow in a 9 month period. And people still manage to screw that up. Keep it real and get a clue losers!

I feel this to be a real good company with tons of benefits.
Very understanding with personal problems as long as you kiss Scotts asshole which is the only bad part since he is a sloppy azz back stabbing drunk bastard.
Other then that

Thanks to my right hand man, Steve. You took the fall for me and now I'm missing you because your hand will no longer be in my pants and some other mans. But rest assured Mike K. will fill them from now on. See you on the back side.

You will always be my Mc cheese

Bahahaha everyone of you supervisors are a joke, as well as the union. Everything that has been said on this topic is very much true. Awesome job, but a horrible work environment. Theres too much back stabbing, snitching and crying going on there. Never been in an accident in the almost 6 years I was there. At one point I had the 8 and 12hr record for moves. Almost everyday I did 2x 3x the work as everyone else did, and I did it in a safe and professional manner. The point I'm trying to make is that it doesnt matter how much you bust your ass for this company, everyone is expendable. I believe they conspired to terminate me because I worked too hard and made others look bad, even though I only worked hard to pass the time... smh at the meth addict and alcoholic in the two posts above mine arguing... Steve and Scott. Glad I'm gone doing bigger and better things.

Man if u dont have an Active social life and like money this is a great job so everyone quit crying. U go to work, do as ur told, keep the bs off the radio, and u will bring home 700 a week starting if u can hang. I dreaded starting on midnights cuz I have young kids but very pleased cuz MOST of the people on my Team are there to work and with cool supervisors backing us on 3rd and the holdovers we get it done everytime. People CRT about the hours but they are the people that want everything handed to them on a platter and wanna slack and milk it out while others bust their a**. Have zero regrets about this job and will proudly wear my union vest when I recieve it in early February.

I have been working at Parsec MIAMI for 3 years now. As a load planner and inventory. My problem is aside from safety issues the fact that I keep working overtime and the Terminal Manager keeps cutting my hours. Just this week he cut 16 hours from my pay. Does anyone have the number for HR and any information on who I can contact about that?
