Laborer (Current Employee) – Mobile, AL – September 23, 2018
start at 630am monday thru friday ending anywhere between 4pm and 1230am. the late nights are few and far between. hardest part is trying to keep up a high paced environment with being a 3 man crew. operator basically stays on the machine while the laborer digs and fine tunes the hole. a lot of the "thats not my job" gets pulled making a greater workload on the laborer.

Enjoyed the employment while it lasted but we know that we work as contractors based on the needs of the customers. When Century Link shutdown their contracting operations we had to find employment elsewhere. it is always challenging working for different telephone companies but the work is pretty much the same with different parameters in different locations which must be met to proper specifications. The job is very rewarding and pays well, only wished it could go on forever. Most of your fellow workers are always eager to lend a helping hand should you run out of supplies or get stuck on a certain job. That's the best part is teamwork, most of us work as a team traveling around the country when there is work.

If you lean on your shovel all day and smoke cigarettes than this is the place for you. They will reward you for such actions with a raise and your own company truck! But if you like to get after it and feel good about your work, stay away. You will get lumped in with the slackers
Treat employees poorly, take advantage. Won't pay unemployment in off season, keep employees hanging with promise of work. Unsafe practices, managers encourage shortcuts, such as climbing without safety gear and work near live power lines
Information Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Carlos, CA – October 18, 2017
The office aspect to the construction field is mentally challenging compared to the field aspect that is physically straining. I enjoy the challenge of problem solving and working through issues or difficult decisions. It is an ever changing field and learning something new daily is commonplace.

MP is a great place to work! I enjoy the family atmosphere and camaraderie in the office. I continue to learn new things in my job every day. MP supports continued education and will pay for classes or certifications that will help you in your job.

I've worked at MP for 2 years and I can honestly say that I enjoy coming to work every day!

They will lie to you all the time. Was promised 40 hours and was lucky to get 25. I loved my co-workers. Good luck making the 1400 hours to get vacation. Health insurance is expensive and with less hours was not affordable.
Single? No kids / family? Perfect job for you......

Lots of traveling (unless you "know" somebody and can get on a local crew), continuous work is never guaranteed (they'll tell you you'll be laid off for a couple weeks which will turn into a couple months). They have the "everybody's replaceable attitude, high turnover rate and they don't really seem to care as long as the money keeps rolling in.
