Lead Foreman (Current Employee) –  Avon, MNSeptember 15, 2017
I love the work and all that comes with it, great company as far as teaching and safety, not so sure about the management on my new site, they never are there. and the people they have in place as leads or foreman have no idea about the job they are leading,

great work for those who don't mind traveling
Laborer/Operator (Former Employee) –  Avon, MNAugust 30, 2017
if you are not a foreman/superintendent traveling can be rough. Pays good, but not to many days off. you get to see different places but are away from your family.

ambiente de trabajo serio
labor (Former Employee) –  Calipatria, CAAugust 8, 2017
el trabajo es pesado
aprendi muchas cosas como tomar medidas, tecnicas de seguridad, manejar maquinaria pesada, dar indicaciones.
los colegas suelen ser competitivos, pero en general se llevan bien unos con otros.
la parte mas dificil del trabajo es estar debajo del sol y caminar todo el dia ademas de levantar bigas pesadas.
lo que mas me gusto es la paga ya que era semanal.
Pros
paga semanal, buen salario.
Cons
trabajo muy pesado, trabajo por temporada o contrato, se mueve a distintos estados.

Good place to work
Electrician Helper (Former Employee) –  Avon, MNJuly 11, 2017
Wish they had permanent place here with us. Great company to work for. The company pay's for you to enjoy things outside of work with your co-workers. They support you and help you learn something everyday about the job and makes sure you know what your doing if your not sure or if your having problems without getting irritated at you. Your also able to move up pretty fast with the company.
Pros
Pay was good, family oriented
Cons
Weather at times, not being able to travel

Ironworker/foreman (Current Employee) –  Avon, MNApril 10, 2017
Trade supervisors are great to work for the most part, but promotions are pretty much based on the buddy system not qualificatoins or experience. This leads to having foreman that are difficult to work with.
Planning is almost next to impossible do to the ever changing cicumstances.
Pros
great pay
Cons
away from home alot

Crew Hand (Former Employee) –  Hays, KSApril 9, 2017
lack of insurance they only carried medical 401k and no vacation or pro and could use more like dental and vision to their plans other then that it just depends on the location and superintendent and foreman but the hours you work build up and accumulate over time like vacation so after you leave the company you have the coverage for the amount of hours you put in
Pros
benefits
Cons
bad management

blattner energy is a great company to work for. A great place that is an equal opportunity company. You can gain a lot of experience from the beginning of a solar project to the end if you have a great work ethic. The hardest part of working for blattner energy was long hours with limited breaks.
