General Laborer in Middlesboro, KY
on January 26, 2023
The Job is great as far as compensation goes. You'll always be exhausted and have almost no social life. I've said it many times though; if you're unable to punctual then its a waste of your time.
Technician in Wilson, NC

The place is good. As always, there are good and bad supervisors. The training is not very good, but the pay check is great. You have to work 6 days. Some very nice people and some not so much. In general, I recommend the place.

Maintenance Technician in Salt Lake City, UT
on January 22, 2023
This is a vpp company, so it's hard to get work done. But it's a very safe place to work. The workers are from lots of different places. So very hard to understand what is going on and how to communicate what needs to be done.
