Horrible management
Operator (Former Employee) –  Country wideJuly 11, 2018
Started out as a good place to work but then the management started hiring their friends and everything went downhill from there. Lots of people quit because there was no respect for the workers.

Laborer (Former Employee) –  East Grand Forks, MNMay 20, 2018
I loved working for these guys for the 4-1/2 months I’ve worked there. The management was amazing; whatever we needed to get the job done it was there in an instant. One time we didn’t have ladders, lights and our manager got the tools and equipment within the hour.
Pros
Very good hours 60 a week, Weekends off. And during overtime the supervisor bought pizza, Paid breaks every 2 hours.
Cons
Dirty work environment.

Training to help improve yourself at company expense

If you are not working in wind they don't care about you

Pipefitter/Pipewelder (Former Employee) –  Laddonia, MOMarch 26, 2018
I only worked the one job with them. They were quick to get you what you needed when you needed it. They are a great company. They take smaller jobs which means smaller crews and less pressure to work your rear off.

Climbing wind towers, completing inspections, completing safety audits.
