Skilled Tradesman (Former Employee) – Midland, MI – December 5, 2016
It was a good job to meet new companies and earn a reputation with them. It was constantly changing from contract to contract. The only problem was the work wasn't consistent. It'd be a week here a few days there. Not consistent work.

Construction Laborer/Trades Laborer (Current Employee) – Rockford, IL – December 4, 2016
Working for Tradesmen International has provided me with experience working in various different trades, jobs, and/or projects. As an employee, you are sub-contracted to different companies to help assist and work as one of their employees in finishing and completing the project. I worked as a construction laborer on projects such as; residential home construction, industrial type construction (i.e. Speedway Gas Station), roofing (residential & flat), decking construction, stair-case construction, hardscape/patio construction and development, etc. The hardest part of working for Tradesmen International is the inconsistent work (on for 2 weeks, off for 1, etc.) and many of the jobs were long distances away that you do not get reimbursed for.
Provided me with a diverse set of skills as a craftsmen.
Bad benefits, health insurence, no overtime, no paid mileage

Leading multiple projects, handling IT support issues, and developing applications in a relational database environment. Co-workers are wonderful people to work with and it's a good team atmosphere.

Tradesman pitches a good line when trying to recruit new workers. The bottom line is I've been with them for a month now and have only worked 3.days yes I missed about four days due to transportation on my end but tradesmen does NOT reward hard work and all it is.T.I s labor ready with a fancy name
Electrician (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 17, 2016
This company is great for anyone who has knowledge in the trades but currently is "companyless". They can provide work for anyone in just about any trade but there is no one solid place you are guaranteed to be. they are great at finding work but like any job in the trades work flow can sometimes look like a rollercoaster which can lead to a variation in your income.
Electrical Apprentice (Current Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – November 16, 2016
Tradesmen International is a pretty good company for a temp service. The pay is competitive and there is never a problem with the checks. The only problem is that it seems as if the office is not very worried about staying in contact with its employees.
Apprentice electrician (Current Employee) – Bremerton, WA 98337 – November 15, 2016
The management is pretty nice and spoke up for me. There was no typical day at work, my job varied and so did my pay. I didn't feel like I had much job security. Some weeks I would work 2 days but be told I had work for 3 weeks or more. Some coworkers were nice and some were very rude. Hardest part of the job was the commute. Most enjoyable parts were when I would get actual electrician jobs.

Labor Foreman (Former Employee) – Albany, NY – November 3, 2016
I've worked for them for about three months and now they have no work for me. I need to work and am eager and a hard worker. I'm not sure what else to write, I haven't had a lot of experience with them as they seem not to be able to find me work right now.
