Horrible Culture
Manager (Former Employee) –  Verona, WIJune 20, 2017
Read between the company-placed "great" reviews, and what you will find is the real stuff.

Believe the negatives you read.

Hate their customers, just want the cash. Cheap fixes for big problems. No annual reviews, no regular raises. Turnover, at some levels of company, is absolutely out of hand!

Before I got to work there, I read the reviews. I thought it couldn't be that bad. I was wrong. Company is run like its 1980.

Don't kid yourself. You can't fix things at this company. You will starve waiting for the great commission program to kick in, but don't worry, If you don't sell enough, you will be back on Indeed looking soon anyway.
Pros
There are other jobs available to you in the free world.
Cons
I think I have that covered in my description of the company.

current employee (Current Employee) –  wisconsinApril 25, 2017
If you want a fast paced environment this is a job for you. You are constantly working and learning new things to advance either in your department or in the company itself. The people are great, easy to work with and are very open to improvements of the company. The management is really easy to talk to without feeling out of place or awkward.

You will feel appreciated every day that you come into work and are allowed to voice your opinions on how you can change a policy or procedure to benefit the company or finding new ways to save money.
Pros
hours, benefits, people, wage
Cons
employee turnover

Was terminated after 6 months!
Fleet Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Verona, WIJanuary 26, 2017
If you are EXTREMELY FAST then more power to you but if you are just making flat rate then you will probably not be fast enough for them. I should have never left my old job for them. They replace techs regularly.
Pros
Pay was good
Cons
Very high turn over rate for techs

Typical Day
foreman (Former Employee) –  Wellington, KSJanuary 3, 2017
A typical day was unsuccessful with either weather, co-workers, and/or management. A typical day was either hard to reach expectations and or goals determined by other factors.

management dose not care about employees
Building Sales Specialist (Former Employee) –  Breese, IL 62230November 17, 2016
The job itself is great. You spend alot of time out of the office to work on your own. But you are nothing but a number to management!. If you do not exceed your sales goal your job is not safe.
Pros
independent work
Cons
management drops the ball

Quality of life and work balance difficult.
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Payson, UTNovember 11, 2016
Typical day at work moves fairly quickly, you are constantly busy so it helps time move by quickly.
You are out of town a lot and not compensated very well for being out of town.

Management is iffy. It honestly depends on if they like you. If they don't, you probably wont enjoy your job.

You really don't have a lunch. Most of the time you go to the gas station and then back to the job site.

Great Place to Work
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Colby, KSOctober 13, 2016
I have worked for Cleary Building Corp. for over 3 years and feel it is a very stable job with opportunity for advancement if desired. Cleary Customers are getting a great product for a very competitive price. As the Branch Manger I have flexible hours, and family always comes first. The office staff and the crews we have are very enjoyable to work with, and are trained to answer, and take care of any questions that arise.
Pros
Flexible Hours and Great Pay, with Advancement Opportunity
Cons
Hard work and stress

Great place to work if you want to WORK!
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  IllinoisSeptember 15, 2016
Opportunities for advancement are great. Construction crew personnel, for example, really do get into sales and management positions with hard work.

Products sell themselves. Great incentive pay plans for sales, management and production people. Smart people who work hard succeed with Cleary. There is nowhere to hide, though--if you're lazy or like to complain more than you work, you won't last here.

Managers are willing to teach, at any level.
Pros
opportunity for advancement, great products
Cons
Dealing with peers who don't carry their own weight
