Great Company
Accounting Admin. (Intern) (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INMarch 12, 2014
Pros: hands-on valuable training, open door policy, great management

The management really helps you to learn what you are doing. Training is hands-on. Open door policy works great here. The co-workers are very friendly and answer questions without getting annoyed, something that is very rare in any work environment. Great company for interns and full-time employees

Productive fun good people
Field Mechanic (Former Employee), Chester,VaDecember 16, 2013
Pros: exelent pay/benifits
Cons: all outside work no shelter
A typical day starts at 6AM. And the crews start 7AM. I would check for anything obvious that is broken or damaged and make the proper repairs. Then when the crews show ask them if they had anything else that I missed. Once they go out to the field, I start working long tem projects I have going on and wait for calls from the field for repairs. I learned – more... a lot as far as what they do and various and how it is done. I learned to deal with people and how read them better.
Management for the most part is great. Very supportive and helpful.
Very friendly and courteous.
My co workers are overall GREAT, friendly, courteous, helpful, and are like family.
The hardest part was always being outside all the time in the open , no mater what the conditions. Rain, heat, wind, snow.
The most enjoyable parts are the people and I enjoy what I do. – less

Great people to work for
Laborer (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAMay 21, 2013
A typical day at work would be arriving there in the morning and getting everything we needed for the day from the sheds. We would then get with our crews for the day and go to the job site to start spotting holes to shoot the gas pipe in the ground. I learned how to operate heavy machinery and vehicles. I had a pretty good chain of command. Great people – more... to work around. The hardest part of the job would be during the summer digging all the spot holes. The most enjoyable part of the job would be fusing the pipe. – less

Does not CARE about family
laborer (Current Employee), IndianaMarch 27, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: traveling, no paid time off, horrible management
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. – more... 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. – less

Harley – April 6, 2013

I am a newcomer to miller pipeline, i have orientation in a week. I was wondering what pay the laborer scale is at? No vacation time at all? What are some of the good things about this company? i have been directional drilling for 2 years now. Im nervous and anxious with my decision on coming aboard the union train. Thanks Harley

Laborer (Former Employee), Niles, MIFebruary 26, 2013
this was not my favorite job, i thought it was something i would like, a day here was digging up old gas lines, and replacing with new ones, , i learned a few things that i will always keep with me, the management was tough, but as it sometimes is, i was able to deal with it, the co workers, weren't the best, as to why i wasn't happy there either, the – more... hardest part of the job, was ripping up the old pipes by hand,, there really wasn't a enjoyable part,, i really wasn't happy there, – less
