Electrician (Former Employee) – Cross, SC – January 6, 2017
Communication to employees isn't that great. I was promised a year and half of work so I drug-up a job with a foreman position to go work for them. I worked for two months and was laid off. None of the management I worked for on this job would answer any questions or return my phone calls. I never received a pay stub the whole two months I was on this job and I requested it over and over, from my Foreman, GF and Superintendent. Other then that.... Great Job!
Family Oriented Company and employer was very good to all employees.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Thibodaux, LA – November 16, 2016
Very family oriented as in family came first. Would work with us if a family emergency happened and would help in any way possible. Very good atmosphere to work in. I would not have left if times hadn't gotten slow and i was asked to retire early. I agreed as I didn't want the younger girls to lose hours.

I have worked for Thompson for almost a year. The only reason being is I'm close to home. They have no management what so ever. For example they will put inworkers as pipe foreman's. You give them 100% and they really don't care. Benefits are in place if you want to spend a chuck for them. I do enjoy working with most of my coworkers but supervision is terrible and makes it hard to stay. Good luck to anyone that works for them. I'm fixing to move on to a different job since I can no longer put up with the bs. Like one day I dragged welding lead back and forth for 6 hrs never striking a arc, then put me on a hot job that had to be done ASAP, but took 3 hrs to get the parts to weld. This is just a little of the bs you will deal with. They will also tell you tons of lies to get you to stay, but I wouldn't believe none of them.
Working for Thompson Construction Group as an HVAC Technician was interesting. Performed HVAC Maintenance at the site of a steel mill. Working in the environment of a steel mill is very demanding and you always have to keep safety first. Working for Thompson itself was not an enjoyable experience for me due to many company flaws, Dead end job with poor benefits and no job security. Working on the HVAC equipment inside the steel mill was always a pleasure because the inside temperature gets extremely hot due to the process of steel making, so it was always a since of accomplishment to bring the system back up to provide cool air to the workers.
Proper tools and equipment were always onsite to do the job correctly.
no job security, poor benifits, pay and management. no training

I think the most enjoyable part of the job is when you get to do something all by yourself and it comes out perfect and you can sit back and look at it and tell yourself you did it all yourself with nobody to tell you what to do or how to do it. I think thats the most enjoyable part of any job.

its easy to go to workwhen you enjoy being around the people you work with .never a dull moment always something to do even if you are not sure how to do the task theres someone there to help and show you how and what you are doing . learning something new almost everyday .hardest part of my job was heavy lifting and the extreme heat inside a boiler unit
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Greenbrier, AR – May 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.
