Parent Company was good, Las Vegas Management "POOR"
Driver/Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) – Henderson, NV – November 26, 2017
I worked at Las Vegas location and work ethic and management was horrible. If i was on time i was late. I always arrived early to make sure my equipment was ready for the job. Management arrived when they wanted and left when they wanted. When asked for equipment repair, fuel, and other required items. Well it took an act of congress and several weeks. equipment broke down and was left in the yard. Rental equipment was then needed and work got pushed and eventually dropped.
NEEDS new Management!
Parent Company reputation
Hubs reputation was bad and reflected in new work diminishing.
The image planted was amazing, however, It never came to fruition. Training was nonexistent, support was lacking, and I felt like I was set up to fail. Planting an office far from corporate is a difficult task for any company, as this one discovered. They are amazing in Phoenix, but could not produce the same outcome elsewhere.
manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 16, 2017
I realized after my first few days at Ace Asphalt that I had made a big mistake accepting their offer. There seemed to be a lack of trust within their main office, especially between middle managers and the executive team. The company gave more benefit of doubt to Spanish-speaking employees over English-speaking ones...and did not discourage Spanish speaking in the workplace. I resigned after about two years, and frankly, wouldn't return for any amount of money.
Construction/ Shop Customer Service (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 5, 2017
Its a great place to work if you have something else your working on. This company is not loyal. They will replace you in a heartbeat. So be prepared to make moves on your own before they can lay you off when it starts to get slow/ and it will.
Senior Financial Analysis (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 27, 2017
I was hired by one CFO with a great vision and great projects but he shortly left for a better opportunity and we cycled through a couple more after him. The current CFO is hands on and desires no help with any such projects so I am stuck with not enough things to keep me busy so to keep myself busy I am faced with looking for another oipportunity or facing having my position eliminated.
No matching 401K / not enought projects to stay busy

Opperator , but did 90% of the labor as well (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 20, 2016
Miss guided and very afraid of good paving hands . If you want to work 10 hours a week it is a part time job . The more you know the less they will work you . Pay isn't bad but getting a full week in is impossible. A good place to get your feet wet and move on to a real paving outfit .. this job is a stepping stone ..
Opperator (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 15, 2016
Miss managed and a huge turnover of employee due to the lack of knowledge and the unwillingness to take advice from more experienced employees in there field . Management is Very standoffish in an verbal interaction with Employees also likes to belittle experienced employees . As if they feel threaten by them and there knowledge instead of using them for what they can do and offer to the job . This job can't even be considered partime work because 10 hours a week is not even part time . This type of work is hard enough in nature and to work for a place that management operations are as is .. This is not the place to work for any length of time .
Laborer (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 31, 2015
being able do and learn something new. Management and co-workers were for the most part great to work with. the hardest part was dealing with the heat during the summer time. the enjoyable part was seeing the end job when we got done.
Coatings foreman / CDL driver (Former Employee) – Phoenix, Az – September 2, 2014
I worked for Ace when we had an 'ethic'... Have witnessed very unprofessional attitudes and results in the final product... Very disappointed in the company as a whole and surprised that it was able to expand as much as it has with the poor care of the 'service' contracts it maintains... Much better service as a whole when it was a smaller, 'local' company...
Not any, that I have seen...
Serious lack of professional ethics and attitude on the site...

Lead Generation Specialist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 28, 2013
I was good at what I did, but was targeted and felt discriminated by the 28 year old junior analysis-supervisor who gave preferential treatment to the 23 year old girl who was added to the department, to the extent that my work performance started to slip and I eventually had an emotional lapse. My typical day started at 6am and for two hours worked on developing a tracker, which I took upon myself since management was not teaching me as promised. From 8am to 4pm I made calls to generate work for the company & search dead accounts for new contact information. The hardest part of working at Ace was the targeting, but the most enjoyable was working on the tracker & doing research. For the most part everyone was nice to work with. However, if they are going to put someone in a supervisory or management position they need to have extensive people training skills so they know how to manage properly and think with the correct head, like the one on their shoulders.
Project Manager/Estimator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 9, 2012
Project Manager at Ace is a very demanding job. You will almost drown in paperwork if you don't keep up with it all. Management is very supportive and helpful if you ask for it. Co-workers are very friendly and all work for the same goal. The hardest part of the job is leaving at the end of the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is the culture and people.
