Tradesmen International is a unique company and is comparative to a union without a lot of the union negatives. It can sometimes be hard to find work that fits your skills and location, but that is on a very individualized basis.
District Manager,Sales, Safety Training (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – June 23, 2017
they put you to work if you were skilled. If you are a good skilled craftsman, you will stay busy with this company. Not like the union, if you are good and skilled you go out first, not down the line on a list.
Very good company to work for. Great people and great management.
Electrician (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – June 22, 2017
Liked working for them a lot. Always had work, kept me busy even through the recession. Would highly recommend them. Great leadership and staff, they worried primarily about how I was doing and my well-being.

Tradesmen Intenational gets you to work fast if you are in the trades, as well as general labor. They are always having company functions and are very involved in their employees work life. Hardest part of being an electrician in general is the heavy lifting, working in the heat.
Construction Laborer (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – June 18, 2017
They give you all these promises for work, but nothing happens. I work 1 job for a few days and another job for a week. I have not worked for them in months, eventhough they said they have steady work. They wasted my time and lied! What's the point?
General Laborer/ Plumbers Helper (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – June 18, 2017
I really enjoyed my time working for Tradesmen International, I learned so much throughout my time especially on the jobs that I work as a Plumbers Helper. I also enjoyed Demolition, and carpentry, I love to work a job that to me doesn't feel like I am working it almost felt like i was doing something Natural.
Laborer (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – June 16, 2017
One of the better temporary companies I've had the pleasure of working for. A typical day varied, depending on the assignment. Sometimes it would be a little challenging getting to an assignment but once in place I was fine.
Journeyman Carpenter (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – June 16, 2017
Tradesmen is a fair place to get a job. It's always something new every job and that's always nice. The management seems a bit airheaded at times but willing to help you secure a job after each contract.
Outside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 11, 2017
Great place to work! Challenging and thrilling. Out in the field. Great team culture. Salary with commissions. Helping people find work and helping business owners. iPads, iphones, and car allowance! Company is growing and improving
Welder (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – June 10, 2017
Tradesmen is a great place to work for and will compensate you accordingly. But for someone like myself with children and the activities that come with them the travel is just to much. I found myself driving further and further for good work.
Field Rep (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 8, 2017
30k base with promises of decent commission structure that is unlikely to ever pan out.
Commissions paid based on A/R monies paid in a timely fashion. Any account generating a large enough commission to matter will not pay their staffing bills within the time allotted for you to receive your full commission. This cuts your money by a large percentage and will simply go to Tradesmen. Clearly, this is by design.
Additionally, you will be hired as a field rep but you will be CHAINED to the office with constant ops meetings and doing the job of a recruiter...even if your territory is over an hour from the office. Incidentally, these 2 hour "meetings" could be conference calls that would take 10 minutes...the whole process is completely irrational. A completely unnecessary time sink.
Also, while you are promised a protected territory...think again. Land a large client...in swoops major accounts. Land a new client...in swoops local management to take over as their point of contact. Cold call a job site...prepare to have your manager escort another field rep to the SAME site in your "territory" during that same week. I wish I were kidding.
The social club atmosphere and co-workers are awesome. If you are happy hanging out in the office while making your base pay while "meeting" and being a recruiter...this is the job for you. Sales professionals....run.
Friendly co-workers, social club office environment
