Poor management
Crane Operator (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDNovember 22, 2016
Not a good place to start out as an operator if you are in Williston. They pick favorites. Will give you minimal seat time and criticize you for not advancing. The dispatcher doesn't know anything about cranes! Doesn't even know how to turn one on! And is always stressing out and putting it on you.
Pros
Great health care
Cons
Patchy hours

is a good place to work but there is no loyalty to the employees, learned a lot while I was there but they are more reactive when something happens as to proactive.

Rigger (Former Employee) –  Grand Junction, COMay 19, 2015
Must not be afraid of heights. There are long days and sometimes many days away from home. Usually work with very certain people and need to be someone that can anticipate the next move. Not a bad job over all
Pros
People that you work with
Cons
Never being home

Good in theory
Crane Operator/Rigger (Former Employee) –  Montoursville, PAMay 23, 2013
Sterling Crane. A mediocre crane company. Yes they are the biggest crane company in North America. Like the US gov, they are getting too big for themselves. The Montoursville PA location is the perfect breeding ground for micromanagement and "good ol' boy" networks. They will hire you for one thing, but you will end up getting knocked down a peg. If you don't immediately become friends with the guys who show up late for work; late being 2 or 3 hours. And yes they bust their humps but that doesn't make up for the time the crews that are short handed. While I do admire their want for the best of the best. When the guys who write the reports on who that is, cant show up on time or leave an accurate description; because one person doesn't like someone. Mostly because they hired someone to fill a job no one else was qualified to do, so hazing begins.

Very Clickish, Very Prejudice
Crane Operator (Current Employee) –  Williston, NDAugust 1, 2012
Everyone is judged on a personal level. Merit does not exist. If they like you...you can damage equipment, break rules, etc and very little or no repercussions. If they dont like you personally then you will be severely punished and starved for hours for the smallest of errors (Ex. Allowing yourself to get Heat Exhaustion after a 92hr week). Very prejudice against Crane Operators from any discipline other than Crane Rental.

If you cant operate a crane but everybody likes you and you know which button to push on every rental crane in the world, then this is the place for you!
Pros
free airplane tickets home
Cons
promise you the world when hired, but they don't follow through.
