Good work environment, good, hard working men.
Equipment Operator (Current Employee), Greenbrier, ARMay 23, 2014
Typical day begins with safety meeting, planning day's work schedule and expected goals.
Management includes helping each worker be his best, co-workers willing to learn and do a good job.
I'm continually learning each man has his own skill set and deciding where to best place him to be most efficient and productive.
Making sure we meet schedules and deadlines is always foremost in my mind.
The most enjoyable is finishing a job, seeing the clients satisfied with our work and the men being proud of their accomplishments.

Electrical superintendent (Former Employee), Anniston AlabamaMay 19, 2014
Typical day at work. First safety meeting,Second, assign daily work. For example,set 2 30 kva transformers, set mcc switchgear,install and terminate process instruments.Then,10:00 meeting with management to talk about contract modifications,deadlines,and outlook.Knowing my co workers strengths and weaknesses and places them where they can be productive. Hardest part of a job is having to lay off employees. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting deadlines in a safe and timely matter.

Fast and productive work environment
Contractor (Current Employee), Richmond, VirginiaApril 16, 2014
Pros: since the company was in the phillip morris plant, i learned a lot about the production of cigarettes.
Cons: the amount of pay, and the atmosphere in which we worked.
A typical day of work included being efficient and fast paced during cleaning of all overhead and high rise above six feet, ice blasting and steam cleaning bins. I trained new hires on cleaning and making sure they were set up for success. One of the most difficult things in my particular job was covering conveyers with plastic, it involved wearing a harness with a lanyard and using D-rings to reach it.

Not well managed
Superintendent (Former Employee), Mooresboro, NCSeptember 23, 2013
Cons: job site under constent confusion and lack off direction.
Owner and HR manager allows piping superintendent which is project managers son to belittle, demean, insult and create a hostile work environment for everyone he disagrees with. Very unprofessional and childish. Does not allow safety manager to do his job and is undermined by General Superintendent.

Pros: good pay
Cons: no life/work balance
I worked on the industrial services side and saw a whole different side than Thompson Construction. The management lie and there is no work/life balance. The expectations were rough and they had no sympathy. Would not recommend this business to anyone.
