Good place most the time
Scaffolder (Current Employee), Fort McMurray, ABOctober 13, 2013
Pros: two on two off 12 hour days
Cons: management issues
I learned alot working here and was given alot of good opportunities, but the company has been heading down hill for awhile. Management has no concerns over their employee's and will screw over anyone to make themselves look better. They have a tendancy to set workers up for failure rather then find ways to make them a better employee

Overview of average work day
Scaffold Builder (Current Employee), Dearpark, TexasAugust 2, 2014
At safway I get assigned different jobs to where I have to come up with a plan to erect a scaffold safely and in a timely manner so that certain contractors are able to perform their jobs. I have learned from safway how to build something from ground up or modify a scaffold with no blue prints to go off of. Most of the management is okay. It is no where – more... the same as the military and I had to give my two cents when it was needed. Teamwork was okay but wasn't the same as the Marine Corps. so I had to help a few co-workers on the importance of teamwork and how important it was to follow directions from the foreman and leadman. The hardest part of the job at safway would have to be dealing with heights and the heat. I am no fan of being up high and having to build something from scratch hanging off of something at great heights, but I have learned to deal with my fears in the military so I do what it takes to get the job done. I find that the most enjoyable part of my job at Safway is to see the final product after the planning and building process is done in a safe manner. – less

Was a company that would push you to work hard.
Scaffold Builder (Former Employee), Corpus Christi,TxJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: experience
Cons: short breaks
I would assist the builder to build scaffolds. I was working as a apprentice. I learned a lot working with builders that knew how to teach others. Moved pretty fast up in position but the pay would not move up with it. Management was different in the different locations I worked at some would push for production and others would ease back and worry – more... more about safety. The hardest part was working a hard dollar job when the job was under bid and we had to bust tail everyday all day. The most enjoyable part was all the learning experience. – less

Forklift operator (Former Employee), Austell, GAAugust 15, 2012
Pros: to keep on your toes at all times.
Cons: being lie to and lie on
I enjoy working on job. I learn on the that I have to double check my orders cause it might be the wrong orders. I also that mine manager might be wrong I have to take to the next man in charge. The hardest part of the job is nothing. And the enjoyable part of the job is when I get hire permanently. Like I was told after 90 days I well be hire that – more... didn't happen also was told I well be able to make 40 hours and a rise. – less
