Horrible
Driver (Former Employee) –  Newburgh, INSeptember 26, 2016
Work is very inconsistent with hours. One day you will work 14hrs then next day work 2. So overtime you do get only ends up being a normal weeks pay. Wasn't told that you are required to work out of town but will send you with no notice at all for a week at time. They do not even tell you what hotel you will be staying at until you get there so absolutely no notice for your family's. require you to be at work to drive at a certain time to go to job site but will only pay the driver even if it takes more than hour to get to job site. Does not give lunch breaks as required. You eat when you can. Numerous times without cold water at job sites working in 90% weather. You will not know until 5pm the day prior of where or how long you will work. Even if you was working at same location for over a week they will all of a sudden to switch you. Will sometimes work you until 2am and expects you to attend safety meetings at 6am. They do give you all they safety training and equipment required but on site most do not enforce any of it. Dangerous work for little pay!
Pros
Interesting work but very dirty
Cons
Hours, last minute out of town, unsafe

Labor (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ILFebruary 13, 2016
Inconsist hours and work with low pay. Must be insurable or pay goes down even more. Higher seniority employees do whatever they like whereas new hires are treated like temporary workers. NOT A DEPENDABLE JOB!
Pros
Paycheck
Cons
Hrs, Work

loved the people I worked with. easy to get along with.
laborer (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ILApril 29, 2015
Inconsistent on hours. Completely unpredictable. When it's busy you can make decent money. But for the hourly wage they offer starting out is very low for the danger you're put in everyday. Plus it's very labor intensive and causes ware and tear on your body. Management is poor. Some people get a slap on the wrist for breaking rules while others get punishment for the same rule breaking. Seen a lot of unfair decisions by the management in the years I spent there.
Pros
Versatile with work and working environment
Cons
Not always consistent hours. Up and down at times. Poor management.

Water Blaster and Excavator Specialist (Current Employee) –  Decatur, ILSeptember 7, 2014
The length of time you worked on a job varied from job to job. I learned how to efficiently water blast and excavated in a safe and productive manner. I received confined space OSHA training. The hardest part of the job is not knowing what you're doing or what time you're going in or what time you're getting off. The most enjoyable experience was learning all the different aspects of the job.
Pros
Learned new information
Cons
Long/Unpredictable Hours
