Very worthy position in that I was responsible for managing the safety on site.
Loss Prevention Manager (Former Employee), Plantation, FLJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: very autonomous position in regards to managing safety.
Cons: short staffed
Great place to work. Typical day included orientation of worker, morning inspection of job site to include hazard recognition and corrections. Motivating workers regarding safety awareness. Management involvement in the safety program was ok. Co worker were very supportive of safety program. The hardest part of the job was management involvement as – more... far as supporting the safety program. The most enjoyable part of the job was when at the end of the day, each employee went home in the same condition that they came to work. – less

Wonderful company
AP Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCJanuary 14, 2014
Learned alot!! Lots of different work to be done. Some of it is on a deadline some not. Co-workers are nice and funny. Management really understands that happy employees are productive employees. Breakfast and lunch are provided alot during the month. It was temporary so my hardest part was leaving.

Horrible management
Technician (Former Employee), Reno, NVJune 3, 2013
Pros: lots of overtime
Cons: no bonuses, unprofessional service
This place hires labor from a day labor temp agency in sparks. The temps show up smelling like alcohol and some are homeless and drug users. The management yells at eachother a lot and are horribly unorganized. You would be way better off working at ANY other restoration company in town. Dont waste your time on a company with a horrible work environment.

Bad management
superintendent (Former Employee), phoenix, azMay 15, 2013
Pros: ?????
Cons: ran by hsw people here in phx not balfour.
Was layed off by Howrd S Wright in 2009 and was told all would be elgible for rehire. Since then HSW has advertised position but have not called any former supers back. All political and clicish.Good supers never brought back. HSW use to be a great company but is now third rate at best even though its now a part of Balfour Beatty. Phx office still ran – more... by losers in the industry. – less

good place to work
Accounts Payable Team Lead (Current Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 27, 2012
Pros: very employee oriented
Cons: sometimes not enough work to stay busy
I've learned a lot at this job. The people are great and friendly, the management is not hard core and easy to work with. The hardest part is when there isn't anything to do (I like to stay busy). The most enjoyable is when I'm given projects that are challenging.
