Foreman in Orlando, FL
on April 18, 2022
Always learning new things at this company, very diverse. Family oriented, pay is good if you work for it. Everyone has a different drive that keeps you motivated.
Production in Pensacola, FL

This job could be a good fit if your young and single with no regard for the amount of time you spend at work, you WILL make alot of money. The job is a high turnover type job by nature of how physically demanding and miserable the job actually is. You'll get used to the physical part, but crawling under houses through septic leaks never gets old. There IS a certain culture that you'll have to fit in, because management is compromised of 22-23 year olds that all went to high school together, everything is very cliquey. I was told by my foreman that we DO NOT take sick days, which resulted in everyone at work getting sick this winter. This was funny because while they talked poorly about people taking sick days, they took sick days themselves. I was also told by my foreman that if they find out that you are looking for other jobs, they will fire you on the spot. These guys are very tight so if one of them doesn't like you, your basically on the chopping block (lots of politics). The goal of this job is to move into a foreman position as quickly as you can so that you can sit in the truck and watch tictok videos and take naps all day (this is openly stated by management). This might not be so bad IF your foreman isn't the kind to pile unreasonable expectations and deadlines onto your 2 man crew in order to maximize his earnings at the least amount of effort to him. While I was constantly told how well I was doing as a new guy based on my work ethic and pace, my manager ran us like dogs and was rarely happy with the pace of work, making comments like "it doesn't have to be perfect" or "what's taking so long" when we're moving at max capacity. My recommendation to him would be, if you want the job to move faster so we can make more money, jump under the house and help. If you want to know what's taking so long, jump under the house and find out.In order to advance all you have to do is put your head down and work, get your CDL as soon as you can, and make sure to stay on the fraternities good side. Also some words of wisdom, wear your PPE! Not all managers will stress this point. If you don't wear your respirator or mask under the house, you WILL get sick from the mold and dust. There are also GREAT foreman at this company who are there to mentor you and coach you along the way with words of wisdom and insight not only for the job but also for life. I won't mention names but the person I'm thinking about was the only person who called me to ask what went wrong when I walked off the job without notice (which is out of character for me) in order to try to prevent the same situation from repeating itself. In the end, I reached my breaking point on a particularly bad day and left with 1 hour notice. I regretted walking off the job, because I've never quit like that, but when my foreman continued to test the waters of how far he could push me to do things that he himself would not do, and with the fact that they would fire me on the spot if they found out I was looking for another job, I made the impulsive decision to call it quits. Overall, I WOULD recommend the job to a friend, with words of caution, IF this was the type of job they were looking for.
Crawlspace Technician in Monticello, FL

You’ll be expected to lay your entire life on the line for the business and for the company to get paid, no expectation or discussion of compensation, you could work 90+ hours in a week here and your check will still say 77 hours so they don’t have to pay you over time. No per diem for travel, no on the road pay, hardly able to get paid for jobs properly with the additional expectation you’ll turn around and work extra on Saturday for “more money that you wanted”. This company is all about Alpha and none about it’s employees. As for the work culture, it’s not a culture you want to be a part of, everyone just bad mouths each other behind each others backs. It’s like highschool actually.

If you want to work somewhere where the managers will gossip about you to others and say horrible things about you behind your back to your peers, then you’ve found the right place. If you are not exactly like everyone else, horrible things will be said about you, and you will be laughed at when you aren’t around in front of others. There are people in management who are only focused on getting people to conform to what they want, and if you do not, they will ensure that you do not last long at the company. They preach about being a family, and then treat employees badly and talk badly about them when they go through struggles. They pull you in with the salary, then bully you. I have seen multiple people terminated for not being “part of the culture”, which essentially means they didn’t assimilate and allow themselves to be bullied by management. The environment is toxic and will cause severe detriments to your mental health. They will also have you be extremely pushy with customers and continuously bother them, which leads to burnout as well. Just do yourself a favor and work somewhere else.
