Lots of travel
Drillers assistant (Former Employee), Intire stateFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: health insurance, job security
Cons: one crew for 2 years put a strain on staff
Staffing was a issue, Not alot of people like this kind of work. Training included. Transportation included. Hardest part was the situations that needed information and study. All places we drilled were unfortunatly a failure in road, bridge or surounding land. Co-workers were talented and motivated. This made the job easyer

Overnight Desk watch / Database Administrator (Former Employee), Essex, VTFebruary 12, 2014
Great people to work with in a very supportive setting. I was able to pick up some extra work that I personally showed an interest in without being asked. Co-workers were very friendly and supportive. Management was there whenever there were any issues. There were no "typical" days.

secure place to work with good benefits
Area supervisor (Former Employee), Rockingham, VTOctober 27, 2012
Pros: good benifits, job security
Cons: long hours, being on call all the time, lack of sleep
I would assign and plan jobs, I would contact Digsafe if we where moving dirt along the roadway, contact utilities power company,phone company,cable company if we were working near there lines. I would meet with private contractors that were working for the state or within the state right of way.I often working with police, fire, and rescue with accident – more... scenes or emergencies.
I learned how to deal with different personalities and departments and to take their work rules into cosideration when working with them.
I managed nine drivers and operators and help to teach them to operate different pieces of equipment such as sanding units, loaders, excavators, and specialized equipment.
The hardest part of the job was to keep everyone on the same direction when the different personalities wanted to keep them from working as a team.
The most enjoyable part of my job was keeping everyone working together and having the crew see how much they could accomplish as a team and the pride they had in their work. – less

All the work is done behind a computer, which creates lack of blood flow, although the management was great, bearing immense knowledge and willingness to teach. The enviroment outside each department lacked personality.
