Regional Administrative Manager (Former Employee) – Columbia, IL – January 8, 2019
Good place to work overall. Their pay was average with the industry. There were many dedicated employees who had been there a long time. But as accusations happened people decided to look for employment else where. The working environment was nice and treated well by management.

Field Technician (Former Employee) – Sweeny, TX – December 4, 2018
Management is very poor, you are expected to work in rough conditions rain or shine heat and cold, you are constantly being rushed and then to slow down and be safe, they will work you to the bone one week and then give you 20 hours the next week.
Technician (Former Employee) – Tyler, TX – November 25, 2018
The work part was easy. However management would not always be organized which would cause conflict and frustration from employees. They also did not fairly. If you had any infractions on your background they would not give you a raise and make you feel like you should be paid less because of that. New people would get paid more than experience workers, who would also have to train them. And when I say more, I mean $2-$3 more. No one should be demeaned to feel like they deserve less because of mistakes they made years ago. If you work hard as everyone else you should be entitled to fair pay like everyone else.

There is opportunity however it doesn’t pay for the technicians in the field doing most of the work. The pay could be considerably better considering the jobs done are the dirtiest and most dangerous at times

Chemical Technician (Former Employee) – Clute, TX – October 9, 2018
a lot of hours which made amazing pay but as for the company its hard to balance life and work there. also in certain branches there is favoritism to certain people but if you work hard it won't affect you as such
