Very fun work, pay and benefits are very livable. Tight knit teams, fast learning, hard work but very fun. The only thing is job security, sand mines are up and down constantly but you have to remain calm and flexible to the changing schedule
I have been with the company since the very beginning and proud of the growth over the past 8 years.
The company has grown from 11 employees to over 700 in only 8 years.
Company grows from within and also adds new talent where needed.
The footprint has gone from Wisconsin to national and Canada.
No communication, mangers always yalling at everyone, poor tranning. Poor management.poor pay. No man - camps. Alot of drama.
More drama with management then any thing else. Managers always starting roomers.
All the crew leaders are out to get each other. No team work at all.
Most crew leader poor communication. Most of them don't know anything about sand mining. Or about there own plant.
Management lied from the interview until I quit. Management wants hourly personnel available at all times. Management gets there when they want and leave when they want. Plant Manger is arrogant and has no plan from day to day except to produce sand regardless. They look for any reason to not give production bonuses. Very poor place to work unless you are looking for lots of hours and don't care how you're spoken too or treated.
Plenty of work to do if you're maintenance.
Managers are liars. No work life balance. Unsafe and unorganized
You will never be promoted or moved to a different position in this company, you will get the work of others but never the salary or the position. They will hire before they move someone internally. This happened multiple times. Senior Management is completely unprofessional, lack the skills to utilize talented and dedicated employees to their fullest and breed discontent. Training is non existent and you are set up for failure then ridiculed by peers and management for failing. Your position will be eliminated then in a month they will hire again. Not secure, no advancement or career growth potential at any level in this company.
Managers talk to employees about other employees, no advancement .
The work is not hard but the management is terrible and it’s a lot of disrespect and they don’t care about there employees they make anybody a supervisor which a lot them don’t know how to supervisor a crew and also they don’t pay you the hours you supposed to get they move you around all the time from crew to crew
Management and lack of communication and disrespect
This company is great for employee appreciation, however, they need to work on communication with the personnel that actually do the work and stop making all management decisions based on what management thinks happens at the 'working' level.
