You want to be in Service, and not Production.
Roofer/Laborer (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – May 4, 2018
A typical day at work depends on if you are on the Service crew (smaller teams of two or three working on repairs) or Production (larger crews of 10 or 12 working on new construction projects.)
Service arrives at 7am, Production comes in by 5 or earlier. Neither will reach the job site until around 8am, and neither is paid until the job is reached, so while Production takes more hours out of your day, you don't make any extra money from this.
Management was usually good at the Crew Leader level. I didn't have enough experience with higher level management to say about them.
Hardest part of the job was the long amounts of time spent traveling to job sites, during which only the driver is paid.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the sheer labor and outdoors experience. It's also fun to banter with the guys.
Poor benefits and unpaid hours
