It really wasn't the worst, except...
Piper (Former Employee) – Auburn, MA – April 10, 2019
I worked at RH White as a piper for a couple of years. The work was sometimes tough but usually manageable. Conditions weren't great but that's usually how construction goes. Compensation was low, and I spent at least an hour and a half on the road everyday with the crew headed to and from the jobsites unpaid. This was my most hated part of the day because I was forced to make idol chitchat with my foreman. In my year and a half with him I was the longest lasting crewmember as everybody else left the company or transferred to other crews, until I too refused to work with the guy. Completely miserable old alcoholic who believed strongly that he should get paid to drive the truck to the jobsite and then hang out unburdened for the rest of the day.
The guy used to cry at work and throw his helmet around like a spoiled child. It was an established fact that he was incapable of running a show. He wasn't the only foreman who was completely dysfunctional. The guys who had their lives together were mostly fine. But there are plenty of ignorant, miserable fellas at RH WHITE that will render worklife unbearable. They need to be purged from supervisory positions, but management just wants pipe in the ground and will avoid any problem they can, they weren't keen on doing anything about it no matter how many complaints they got or how many people left for other jobs. So people just kept leaving, instead and I too eventually just found another job.
Careful who you work with
