Awesome place to work if you would like to run your own business. That's literally what your doing as a foreman. You hire your crew and manage the training and career development of your guys. Company provides some pretty awesome supervisors to help you every step of the way although some are better than others. Bonuses make your career here. Base pay is decent and some weeks are better than others, but overall you determine your own income. Anyone who talks bad this place is too lazy to make it happen because no one is holding you up here but the guy in the mirror.
Good managers, Good Training and Advancement Opportunity
No per diem for travel
Compensation is good. Management could be better. Not the right place for a family person. You spend most of your time living in hotels, home on some weekends and in the winter time you are lucky to be home once a month. I once got bedbugs from a ratty hotel that these people put me up in.

This job would be good for someone that can work anytime at any convenience and have no family. Communication could be worked on, the pay and benefits aren't bad.
Weekly pay, company truck
Are promised you can work any work schedule, cant drive after 10pm, so if you want to go home after a job and itll be after 10pm, you have to stay another night, communication sucks
The job itself and the duties you perform are okay but upper management could care less about you or your crew. Can be removed from a contract without any notice just because the co op wanted a new crew.
Supervision was terrible. Keeps crews and Foreman way from home after saying they will work to keep you close. Never have supplies when needed. Poorly planned work starts, never having the necessary materials nor supplies to work with. Equipment breaks and make you pay to replace and maybe reimburse you for the purchase.
It's a country wide company yet the separate territories are always trying to outdo the other. Terrible management. Killed myself for that company to have a M.O. lie about my work because i wanted to switch territories.
Pay if you are a foreman
Crew member pay. Management. Travel.

Great if you want to have no life, you are young, single, and your only concern is how you are going to blow off steam at work. Management is poor at best with project planning and often you will not know where you are going till the start of the work week. Compliment to the Field Supervisors is they have great technical knowledge when it comes to work being former foremen themselves, but in the end they still have the cover their own behind mentality, refuse to develop prospective talent, and do not know how to manage people.
The management i worked with was very knowledgeable. Must upper management has years of tenure and really know there skill. They put there formans and supervisor through rigorous training at there home office.
Working with great people
Turn over, travel
If you like traveling and working outdoors. Then this is the job for you. Management could have been better. Work expectations were too high. Dealing with the elements was tough.
Company vehicle provided.
Impossible to have a family life.
It’s fun you and your crew become like family but the job doesn’t have the benefits or money I need to live off of starting off coming out of high school it’s a great job but as far as having a family and working there being a crew member is not the spot Forman and higher with a family isn’t as bad
Hotels and travel covered
Bad benefits low income gone a lot
Osmose Utilities is a great company to work for. Middle management does a poor job but alot of good employee's through out the company so it really depends on who you work with. Examples of poor management would be not being able to go to a family members funeral and not allowed to use vacation to take to take care of personal affairs like going to a family members funeral.
I worked there 11 years. Always a hard worker Always early Always ready for what they through at me and was alot. They care nothing for the crew members andNothing for crew leaders just a title they mad up don't believe just ask H.R. I took vacation and they made some stuff up on my work and fired me. Forman didn't even have the ba??"s to call or text. They'll use ya through u out like nothing.
Thinking and really have none probably would had some but i see how know one cares
I worked for Osmose for 2 years as a foreman. Travel is 90% of the job. Money is performance based with potential to make 60-100g a year. Physical labor intensive and alot of turnovers in the crew.
Pay is great
Never home for longer than 5 days in 6 months
You're just another body to them that can easily be replaced by another body. Before the ink is dried on separation paperwork, there's already someone in the truck and wielding the shovel. There is no individual care for the person, just the production your crewID does. The working environment in some territories is outright toxic and hostile. This behavior is encouraged by the GM.
