Driver, Traffic/Safety Control in Manassas Va
Time goes by slow but you get overtime.
Area Wide Protective provides services to other companies by protecting there work zone making sure everything is abiding by VDOT standards.You also have to make sure everyone within the work zone is safe from traffic before the construction/road work/ busted gas pipes/ down electrical pole or whatever it may be. Some times you would have to work 14hr+ days in places like D.C (depends on the job)in a back ally way or just on a sidewalk and after you check your spacing between your signs, the tapering of your cones , making sure flaggers are in place you begin to have to stand around and just make sure everything is the way you left it and that everyone is being safe. It becomes boring because when that happens your not busy and time goes slow when your not busy. The pay was good , there was overtime and some benefits but there was just to much of majority of the days where it was so slow. I learned a lot about safety, roads, and VDOT. There was times when we had extra workers at the job site and it would become slow so we would offer the asphalt companies or tree companies help with anything they needed

Good place to work if you like being outside.
A typical day at work depends on what client you are working for and what they have planned that day. Sometimes you could ride around in the company truck just following the client for four hours and they give you eight hours and tell you to go home and sometimes they are so busy that you will work 16 hours straight. I have learned that most of the people that you work with both client and co workers are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and they wont judge you. Some of them will actually try to get to know you. The hardest part of the job is that sometimes you only have two people on the job so you have no breaks and have to stand the whole time. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to talk to people over the radios and like I said some of them will try to get to know you even though you wont get to work with the same crew all the time.

need a job quick
Hard to be a career because the way the jobs are scheduled. Budget planning for a family almost impossible unless you get a salary position. In colder areas work is slower usually.

Productive work place
Long hours on your feet management is wonderful the hardest part of the job is dealing with distracted drivers and co-workers that don't communicate well
