It was a decent place to work with exception that there was a new manager every quarter. There is an extremely high turn over rate country wide. Sales people are very aggressive towards other offices especially project coordinators who work directly with the sales team to fill orders.
You can make money, you can learn a lot about the construction industry
Apprentice Electrician (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – April 21, 2017
I enjoyed working here . It was hard labor work for the most part. But I do enjoy doing things like that. I did learn some knew things I didn't know before from experienced men who have been in the field a long time
Carpenter/Laborer (Former Employee) – Throop, PA – April 19, 2017
This is the type of job that will make u work hard for the clients they send you to,hoping the client we hire you reasons being lack of communication with employees,being lied to about jobs and rates of pay,a job ends and you could sit and wait weeks or months waiting to go back to work.The benefits they offer are a joke,1800 hrs of work before you're even eligible.Everything they say in the description is false,it sounds like a real job but it's not. The management is like dealing with used car salesman buyer beware,that never in their lives have worked construction.You cant raise a family working there,they don't care for employees they will hire anyone.There is absolutely no career advancement unless you get hired by one of their clients.All they seem to care about is hiring hiring hiring to fill their own pockets.The office is bringing in money no matter what,why you sit and starve waiting for work,as you browse want adds seeing tradesmen are hiring but they don't have work for you.Use this company as a stepping stone as I did for career advancement.Maybe not all their offices are bad but Throop PA was a stressful miserable experience,that ppl need to know about.
Carpenter/Laborer (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – April 11, 2017
Was able to learn much. My only complaint is, the amount of driving I had to do. 20-40 hours week driving and the cost of gasoline every week $100+ to and from job sights that came out of my own pocket. Made my hourly wage about half of what it actually was. Winter time was more or less without work at all.
Learning new skills
Cost of gasoline, unpaid hours driving, wear and tear on vehicle.
carpenter (Current Employee) – Orem, UT – April 10, 2017
Previous employee, got sent out to jobs that were out of my scope and found out later that the company had terminated my employment without any notice. They are horrible with calling you back to send you out to jobs when you're out of work and expect you to call in daily when you're out of work even when they say that they will call you back.
pay is decent when you're on a job
extensive time-frames between jobs when one assignment ends

Great work, very safety conscience. Averaging 32+ hours gives me a bit of Flexibility. Great staff in Riverside, Ca.....great rate of pay, and being one of the few Masters, I get opps first and even then, I can choose to turn down any projects
