Great please to make money and traveling makes it nice that you get to see new places. Very hard labor job but rewarding if you are doing good. Lots of room to move up.

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.
Pros
Good managers, Good Training and Advancement Opportunity
Cons
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.
Pros
See the country.
Cons
Seeing the not so great parts of this great nation.

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.
Pros
Weekly pay, company truck
Cons
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.

You're just a number to your supervisor. They only care about you if your helping them get their bonuses. If you don't hit your expected goals they treat you like nothing

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.
Pros
Free hotel
Cons
Everything.

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.
Pros
Pay if you are a foreman
Cons
Crew member pay. Management. Travel.

Management isn't very up to date with crews but if you get a good foreman then its not a bad job. The work isnt very hard just tedious. You'll have hardly any home life.
Pros
Fair wage
Cons
Never home

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.
Pros
Good pay
Cons

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.
Pros
Company vehicle provided.
Cons
Impossible to have a family life.

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 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.
Pros
Pay is great
Cons
Never home for longer than 5 days in 6 months

Good pay and bonus. Working outdoors is great. Like meeting new people everyday and working in different areas all the time. Not ment for someone who doesn’t like to travel.

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.
Pros
Travel
Cons
Harassment
