Terrible management terrible hours
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Mt. Jackson, VANovember 30, 2017
Dbi seems like a nice laid back place at first then they jerk you around on hours. You can’t have anything planned for the weekends. They don’t rotate the on call list equally, they are very unfair to their workers and will fire you or write you up for things you had no control over like injuries or getting sick. They will lie to make you out to be the bad person. This is a very hostile work place and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. The pay is terrible for the amount of danger you are in every day. I can’t count how many time I and others have almost been hit by vehicles. Terrible place to work.
Pros
Always work
Cons
Pay, hours, management

Poor Management
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLNovember 21, 2017
If you ever have a complaint, it will fall on deaf ears. HR protects upper management and is bias. Profit is more important than safety. Equipment / Tools are junk and never fixed correctly.
Pros
Health Care, 401K
Cons
You could DIE!!! Low Wages

DBi as a company is a great career. The problem is management and pay.
Area Manager (Current Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXNovember 5, 2017
DBI is a great career choice. Management makes it very stressful though. My current boss (Project Manager) sits back and takes credit for a successful project while I do all the work. I'm responsible for everything in the field and all paperwork and customer relations. He makes no effort to get upper management to promote me but insists that I do the job of an Assistant Project Manager.
Pros
1 week vacation after 9mos, 2 weeks after 3yrs.
Cons
Only 30min break. On call 24/7 with no pay unless you are actually called.

Company bought out so now it's cutt throat liars.
CDL Class A Driver (Former Employee) –  Hazleton, PAOctober 16, 2017
Company makes promises to get you in the door. Poor compensation for 6+ weeks mandatory over the road. I have been forced to work passed cdl federal allowable hours numerous times. You are just a body in a seat. Revolving door of employees. They hire poor quality people as they don't pay well, but promises of way more in the future with lots of room for advancement. I was given extra hats with no extra pay. Lies lies lies.
Pros
Prevailing wage, per diem, co-workers
Cons
Home time is minimal. 4 or 5 days for 6 or more weeks in shared rooms hotel over the road.

Very unprofessional region
Administrative Assistant/Payroll Clerk (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXMay 19, 2017
Very unhappy with the advancement opportunities and professionalism of the Waco region.The office manager leaves no room for growth. The region has 1 project manager that takes his job professionally, the remainder of the colleagues "hang out", joke around and then rush to complete work.
Pros
Some would enjoy the excess amount of down time
Cons
No opportunity to move up. Will be under a very unprofessional manager.

I was one of the first employees hired when DBI came to Houston. I must admit it was a pretty good company to work for. They could pay a little more though.

Upper management exists by riding on the backs of the hardest working.
Manager in Training (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLFebruary 7, 2017
Company is playing a shell game with vendors, clients, and employees.
Government agencies should be wary of this contractor.
Vendors are not paid on time, and employees are not properly trained or certified to complete tasks on DOT fights of way.
Pros
Only if you are hand picked by management due to prior relationship.
Cons
None if you don't mind being used like a dishrag.
