Tool and Fleet Coordinator (Former Employee) – High Point, NC – August 9, 2018
Hardest part of job was all the traveling. I was paid for traveling in the company vans. Paid flying to work site if needed. Meeting new people. Great management. Work was stressful and fast paced, tho.
Helper (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 2, 2018
The job is good however not all the times we had with this company, I would recommend it to a friend who is looking for a second job on free time, however the job is on call so it's not reliable, unless you reach a certain amount of hours which is hard when you hardly get called anyway.
Breaks every 2 hours, cafeteria was close so we could go on break.
There was no balance between working and having any kind of life outside of being an instrument for the company. I lost friends, no time do date or be social to meet anyone to have a relationship with.
In the beginning the worst part was that there was no training to fit into the job position. It was a sink or swim situation, in a department with a manager who was a verbally abusive narcissist. That was the hardest part of the job, dealing with her which made the work itself complicated, which was not necessarily complicated to begin with.
Communication between departments was terrible, and the Account people were horrible with inputting instructions, data, and reference material in the jobs.
Decent pay rate, and benefits.
No opportunity for advancement, poor communication.
Information Technology Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 16, 2018
Work at Freeman was different from other companies. They really are great at marketing and advertising. When it comes to the employees they are hard workers. Helping With IT was tons of fun and learned new things everyday. Being a IT Support you always have to be aware of what people need and what types of problems they have.
The company was bought out due to poor management. The manager will deal with personal life first and leave with no direction to guide the operation. Co-workers was what relived the stress of day to day operations. The culture was to help one another,
Operator (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – June 18, 2018
Freeman has historically been a 'stable' private company. For many years, Freeman was a stable, respected company in the industry. It was difficult to get hired, and subsequently, difficult to get fired. However, there has been continual layoffs and restructuring since 2010. Employees are consistently overworked, and underpaid, based on similar roles/titles in the workforce. The management and subsequent industry doesn't respect PTO/Vacation time earned by the employee. Upper Management are disconnected from employees doing the work. If you work in a branch, or for corporate, they do have corporate events, some lunches, and there is a much higher degree of corporate synergy.
A3 Solutions Temp. Agent (Former Employee) – 114 th. St. Grand Prairie, Texas – June 5, 2018
A typical day at Freeman was very quiet but professional. Business people come in from time to time. I learned how to approach difficult situations. Management were very polite and helpful. The work culture was fine. The hardest thing about my job was telling the delivering people to take the delivery to the back building after they had unloaded the boxes in the front. They were upset. What I enjoyed most was meeting new people and the atmosphere.

Freeman only prepares to work with in their system. Propritary tools and procedures will not serve you well if you leave the company. Management is an old boy's network that will not recognize loyalty. Don't get on their bad side.
