Pretty much as the title says. Jobs are far and few in between, rarely pays enough to be worth the injuries that you are pretty likely to sustain. There seems to be no screening process for who can hire through them - many employers being abusive, violent, and have no qualms about racist/sexist comments in the workplace.
You get a wide array of job experiences.
Extreme exposure to elements, hazardous jobs, poor pay, unsafe employers and coworkers.
I had mainly good until i was told i was lying and i never had a issue at this company. The manager said it out her own mouth
I got a hammer pulled out on me and they didn't believe me lost my job because i called police and i was told that was too much and got called a liar.
They Madden management team makes me feel important and valuable. But the people we get contracted to as an employee don't treat you the same. Your just a number to them and once your not needed or not on the cool side they get rid of you no questions asks. Companies that also have poor leadership and basically you have no feeling of job security, scared for my job every day. I my self was let go for no reason. A Foreman's mistake. I lost my position he stayed.
Good pay. Management team is great
No feeling of job security. Wrongful termination
Madden is a great place to work. The only thing that's kindA wierd is when u go out to a job site for a contractor there guys can be a little critical
I have nothing but good things to say about madden. If you work for them you get paid fairly and you get it every Thursday. They also pay on the higher end of the scale I was a carpenter for them and I got 28 per hour.. I don't really know what they do for benifets. I would recommend them to a friend
Would you rate your company five stars?
Rate your employer to help people make better career decisions.
For the type of work and it being temp work it was a great employer to work for. Yes some days were slow or you didn't work a day or two but the pay was decent and the people and clients that you worked with were professional and courteous.
Small family run business that believes in helping people find work. The most enjoyable part of the job was connecting clients with qualified applicants.
Its ok when they have a job lined up for you. Paid every week. Pay verys depending on the job. But the downside is it takes a couple weeks before getting sent to a new site. Ive had to rely on side jobs to keep me going.
Get to eperiance everything.
Takes to long to get sent to a job site.
I was accused of using drugs . I never used when I worked here . another one of there workers told the company that I used and that was not the truth he said it to get me in trouble. I never really tried to convince my manager that it wasn't true. I felt like it was there job to come and ask me. When I started there I was drug tested and was clean. Several times along the way I was tested. The guy who started all of it is a fat lazy old man with no balls.
They paid on friday
I got no benifets
Walk into work and put on phone. Alarms and calls going off and get tools together and start the day. Quick trouble shooting. Or major breakdowns to where a system need major work. Complete job and then on to the next problem of the day. Never stops.
After coming in for an interview I was placed out on a job within a week. You need to be ready to work for the company they send you to. Would highly recommend working here to anyone. Only positive experiences when working with Madden Industrial Craftsmen.
Quick Job Placement
Madden Industrial is a placement agency. I worked for their fab shop in downtown portland. I loved working there, they taught me almost everything i know about welding and fabrication. And i was also taught how to be a leader on job sites. I will always thank them for the work they gave me, but unfortunately i need a raise or a promotion into a different path. I find that it is possible to grow out of a job, which i did with madden. But it is a great place for most. I just needed more.
Sometimes you take a low paying job if there's not much available, and sometimes you land a really good spot and end up getting hired on. My experience has been mostly straightforward - show up to the job site, do the work, and text or email a photo of my timecard at the end of the week. They're usually good about letting you know about the conditions & environment, what attire to wear, and any PPE you'll need. They had some gear available for purchase in the office years ago and used to deduct it from your paycheck if you needed the advance but I don't know if they still do. If you're sent to a job and they've got other workers along side you it can be a bit of a headache - the personalities and individual work ethics can really vary and make any task a whole other project in itself. On the personal level it isn't so much to deal with but sometimes one has to wonder if they're damaging the relationship with the customer you're working for and thereby sabotaging any future work.
Jobs usually go beyond office hours, co-workers are unpredictable
