Does not CARE about family
laborer (Current Employee) – Indiana – March 27, 2013
I'm sure after reading this you might doubt that I like my job, but I do. There a just a few things that frustrate and confuses me. Unfortunately, for a laborer you only get paid when you work which I know you have to work to get paid, but most companies offer paid time off. NO paid holidays, NO paid vacations and if you "rain out" you do not get paid. I understand that there is a large turn over, but for employees that have been with the company for over 10 years, one would think they would want to reward those employees. I work hard. I would love to take a vacation, but with a family it's hard
Constantly changing where we are working, short notice. Not caring if you have a family at home. Having to drive 2+ hours to your work site when there are crews very close to your home. To me that doesn't make sense. They pay for employees to stay at motels when they have a large distance to travel, why not try and locate their employees closer to home that would save the company money I would think.
I was laid off for a week then brought back on and was working 10 hours a day. Don't get me wrong the OT was great! but if there was so much work why lay off in the first place?
I've been here 10+ years, RARELY miss any time. Almost never sick, do not take time off. I do my job. I know what I'm doing, but I am still a laborer who keeps getting promises of something more.
traveling, no paid time off, horrible management
