Very poor management. Age discrimination.
Concrete Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OH 43213July 16, 2017
Very poor management. Age discrimination. Too many people trying to play supervisor. One person wants things done one way and then somebody else wants you to do it their way. Totally unorganized and unprofessional. They consistently put the employees at risk.
