It's a good company to work for. It does have it's pros and cons just like everywhere else. It's a great job for someone who loves working outdoors, and someone who isn't allergic to bees.

job security was good just was over worked and under payed. It seemed like if you was buddies or ken to the higher up people you always got moved up first you could be the hardest working smartest guy but that doesn't matter to them.Oh yeah your just another number to them your replaceable.

If you like year round work and lack of true pay.for what we do but good pay none the less than this is it. Benefits are better than most a union job. Make sure you are fit to climb trees in the -20 winter weather

It was ok too much BS
General Foreman (Former Employee) –  OhioFebruary 15, 2018
They act like you should thank them for giving you a job .nothings ever good enough you'll never hear a positive word about the work completed everyone is too busy trying to find a violation or something wrong .The disconnect from upper managment to what it takes in the field to get the work done is ridiculous .
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
So much paperwork
