Too much favoritism from management towards certain people
Driver / Operator (Former Employee) –  New Lenox, ILMarch 2, 2017
False presentation at interview. They will tell you, and promise you things that are not true. If they could be up front about everything about the job, and follow through with what they say, the job would be good. Management needs to be better. Fellow workers are helpful, thoughtful, and considerate people.
Pros
Health benefits
Cons
Work and pay

Many changes since 2013
Director, Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INFebruary 1, 2017
2013 the bottom fell out when CEO left. Many people lost their jobs because the company merged three divisions. Unfortunately, some of the most talented people were termed.

Not the greatest place to work
Explosives (Former Employee) –  Ashland, KYJanuary 23, 2017
Foreman's were great. They were hard workers and would stand right beside you and work. You worked very long hours and was out of town a lot when you worked. There probationary period is ridiculous it is 90 work days, but your on call 24/7 and the call outs don't rotate. So you might get to work 1 or 2 days a week or 2 days in a month. It all depends.
Pros
get to travvel
Cons
you could Fget blowed up handling explosives, Fall asleep driving do to long hours, starve to death waiting on the call out to go to work
