Stable, Safe and Productive work environment
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – May 7, 2018
Typical day: 8 hrs 7:00-3:30 5days per week Monday-Friday Overtime & weekend work often available (sometimes required) 15 min paid brake around 9:00. 30 min un-paid lunch around 12:00.
I went through the apprentice program. The apprenticeship is solid. You can start with no experience. Classroom training, books, hands on training, Safety training all provided at no cost.
Management: Is competent, like everywhere some are better than others. They prefer to promote from within as positions become available or by company growth.
Culture: A safe, productive working environment. They try to create a team atmosphere on each project. A typical job is made up of a foreman, mechanic, apprentices, and helpers. ( the number of and experience of each depends on the size of the project). A honest day’s work is required to make it. Employees with the best attendance, production, quality and work ethic are paid fairly and occasionally recieve bonuses, they are also chosen to be promoted. Employees that regularly layout of work, require prodding to stay on task and don’t follow safety rules usually quit or are terminated. (which leads to high turnover)
Hardest part of the Job: Fast paced environment! The only thing pushed harder than Production and Quality is Safety.
Most enjoyable part of the job: I’m constantly learning. I get to work with my hands. I take pride in work done well. I like building new projects and creating Satisfied & Repeat customers.
Safe work environment, great benefits, Plenty of work.
Sometimes have to drive further than optimal
