    I worked at John Holland Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good wages and nothing else.

    Cons

    Bullying and Harassment are rife. When I told one of my supervisor that he has to stop ringing my family and frightening them he refused and said he would not stop until quit. The reason he wanted me to quit was because he did something wrong and I saw him do it.

    Advice to Management

    Teach management and Supervisors how to treat people with respect. And set up a real complaints department and not Naser. Which I believe is only set up to cover up what goes on there.
