Good Company
Region Quality Control Manager (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAApril 17, 2018
Company has solid benefits and a very strong safety culture. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the ever changing work schedule. By far, the most enjoyable part of the job is the quality of the people you work with day in and day out.

the hardest part of the job
Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJanuary 31, 2018
The hardest part of the job is the amount of labor that comes with being a plant operator on top of all of the technical no how that you need for the position. Also you need to be able to juggle loading trucks, talking on the phone with customers or road foreman and running the plant at the same time.
Pros
paid for the entire time you are there
Cons
no formal breaks

Paver Operator (Current Employee) –  Kissimmee, FLJanuary 29, 2018
the hardest part about this job is the heat. anyone that has done asphalt in the south knows the summers are rough but if you do not mind its not horrible. the management is lacking in the realest sense of the word and do not care about anything but the money the make. it does not matter if you make money or not to them. the employees no longer get bonuses but the formen and office workers get huge checks for Christmas.
