More concerned with micromanaging the sales force than actual production.
Field Representative (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: exotic annual trip (2 persons), for good producers who generate over a million $$ in sales first year.
Cons: poor management, long hours, bad pay, broken promises.
As a Field Representative you will work long hours and be responsible for procuring clients, and be the point of contact between those clients and the company. You also are responsible for collections and your commission is a small % of the $$ collected by you. High turnover ratio. Out of 10 field Reps hired only two stay with the company.

ITS A TEMP. AGENCY
Carpenter/ Iron Worker (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: learned about steel framing and steel siding and roofing
Cons: still not doing what i applied for, low pay rates, they lied, no communication to the employees from the main office. they're disorganized.
I went through tradesmen intl. hoping to get training to become an electricians apprentice (i applied for that position) but instead, I am doing "grunt work for pennies". They promised a raise after 90 days-nothing yet, health benefits-still waiting.This is a construction job placement agency. half of the people are either inexperienced or straight out of prison.

Hard Work- low pay
Carpenter/ Iron Worker (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: construction work is reliable
Cons: low pay, charge for personal protective equipment, lack of training.
I've been working For them for about 5 months and have not been given a promised raise, health benefits or any applicable training on the career that I applied for.
They ARE a temporary job placement agency for larger construction companies, even though they say they're not.

The office environment is positive only with the right management and office staff.
General Manager (Former Employee), Portland, MEJanuary 28, 2015
Each office in each state is run by a general manager supported by an area manager. The success of that office is extremely dependant on the right people with an upbeat and positive attitude. When that is in place the sky is the limit!
Where their weakness falls is at the corporate level. Be cautious of the captain in charge.

Recruiter (Current Employee), Urbandale, IAJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: learning a lot about job force.
Cons: no bonuses or commission
Was responsible for recruiting construction workers. Put jobs on indeed, career builder, and craigslist. I would always interview the candidates and determine which position would be best for them. Also would take their work experience and find jobs that is best for the abilities. Make sure that employees will always stay busy so they have a steady paycheck.

Lies to obtain employees
Employment Associate (Current Employee), Tampa, FLJanuary 19, 2015
Pros: close to home
Cons: ^ see reveiw
Have been mislead about pay and schedules of jobs. For example I took a job under the agreement of working seven days a week 12 hour days. the schedule ended up only being 6 days a week 10 hours a day. When I spoke with other employees i heard similar stories.
Another instance; I was told that I could only recieve such a low pay because the job did not need "lead plumbers", but that is exactly what I was doing. I was reading and interpreting blueprints, excavating with a mini trackhoe and was basically running the crew , ALL of these duties for apprentice pay basically ($16.00/hr)

journeyman painter
Commercial Painter (Current Employee), Waukesha, WIJanuary 11, 2015
Pros: tool program
Cons: temp. service
they take most of your pay, they charge the company 37.00 per hr. and pay you 16.00 per hr..Also they were always short staff .they said that they only hire journeymen painters, but their were people who could not paint a door. I found myself training people, But not being paid for it, nor did I know ,these were novices.so with not enough men on the jobs and untrained people, this make keeping a schedule and quality very difficult.
