low pay but always had steady work
Industrial Electrical Apprentice (Former Employee) –  nationwideOctober 6, 2015
Work for 2.5 years never laid off. But they pay about 5 bucks less than every other contracter. I always felt they tried to be too envolved in my personal life. Best tools by far of any contractor I've worked for always willing to make the job easy on the worker as long as there was productivity to be gained
Pros
good tools, steady work
Cons
pay, perdiem, not much over time 45 hrs a week
