Decent company
Truck Driver/Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  MichiganApril 6, 2017
Decent guys to work with. Management was decent but heard a lot "oh, I forgot". Good equipment and safety was the number one goal. Work was steady, but changed after awhile.

A Good Place to Work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Kirkland, WAFebruary 13, 2017
It is a good place to work, Corporate tries to play a very active role in all divisions, but each division still has that "small office" feeling. The people are very fun to work with. The field employees are always appreciative for the help that they receive.
Pros
Fun place to work, co-workers and field emplyees are enjoable to work with
Cons
There is not really any room for advancement

Good department if you are not Level 1
IT SERVICE DESK ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Brownsville, WIOctober 15, 2015
Good staff to work with if you are not Service Desk. They love to promote from within into a more salary-based position in IT, and offer many opportunities to take classes on top of current work. They make sure you become Dell Certified to work on equipment. Good benefits too.

no direction
Field Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Rogers, MNJune 10, 2015
as an intern, the company didnt really have an agenda for my training. i was left at the office to fend for myself. eventually, i was given a truck with a fuel card. i began asking questions and trailing along in business meetings. the two management staff were not very interested in my development as an intern or management.

eventually, i was given some responsibility after i kept requesting.
as my time with the company ended, i had finally completed some tasks that were important to the business.

Diversity and Campus Outreach Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Brownsville, WIAugust 17, 2014
Michels Corp. is a very innovative and fast-paced company. A typical day requires someone to think quickly on their feet as the construction industry can be very unpredictable. Working in Human Resources can be stressful because of the demands of the job, but the workplace culture makes it fun.
