Manager - Field Technician (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – 8 March 2018
Many years with the company with no raise in site. Many days worked long, hard hours. Management could not be trusted and made a difficult job more difficult. A plus is that safety eventually became a priority. Benefits were average to above average.

Credit Administrator - Accounts Receivable (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – 13 December 2017
I enjoyed my job before corporate moved to Texas. My immediate Supervisory was amazing and I took pride in my work. Although at times it was stressful and fast paced with a lot going on I liked the group of people I worked with. Unfortunately when New management took over it threw everything off balance and it became unprofessional.
Learned new skills and program's
Position moved to Texas and New Management were Hired
They were good to me. I was asked to do more than my job scope based on lack of staffing. It was okay at first. Then became mandatory, for the same pay. I asked for more compensation and they asked me to perform for 90 more days to prove it. I said i've been doing it. i can do it, and i shouldn't have to prove myself when you know and trust me to finish these jobs, already...alone!
leader board bonuses
lack of staffing. lack of dispatch. that was in 2016

Construction Laborer (Former Employee) – Ellensburg, WA – 21 May 2017
Typical day at work long hours. Learned something new every day. Management works well with employees and takes care of their employees. The hardest part of the job would have to be the temperature and long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was the pay and the people I worked for and worked with.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – 1 April 2017
Often times I would find that there would be equipment failures such as concrete cutting saws breaking down, rivet busters not working, cables exposing wires. I would also get to a job and not have the supplies readily available. I learned how to cope with set backs and pull together a job through grit to get it done. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a great team.
joined Penhall as a helper with no experience in concrete cutting or drilling...starting pay wasn't bad I guess for no experience. What I didn't like about the Houston division is that the work is not consistent....not knowing if you'll make 40 hours or any hours for that matter is the worst. The actual work itself (wire sawing, core drilling, flat sawing and wall sawing) was a cool experience but I just not for me. The other helpers and operators were good people, some easier to get along with than others. Got to do some traveling too which I liked because Penhall would me pay per diem and for the nice rooms they put me in. The management could do better with their employees though.
uniforms, traveling, pay per diem and hotel
management don't take care of their employees or appreciate the work and production they do, Work is NOT consistent and the hours are NOT guaranteed.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – 2 February 2017
Don't work here. When i started all i could see was an unorganized mess. Stuff being done at the last minute when it had to be done hours before and then the superintendent not keeping track of the hours. It was just a mess. On top of that be prepared to not work for a month straight, During the winter they would seriously not call you but they'll inform you that you can't work and to wait it out. We have bills to pay and they expect us to seriously wait a month without work?!
Unorganized management, losing track of hours and no work for a month
