Good place to start if you're new to the industry. You might move up every now and then, but then you'll plateau and that's when you should move on. Like any other construction company, there are bad apples. Communication is really bad between the rungs of the ladder. Some Foremen are excellent, others are just terrible communicators and have their little cliqs and exclude the rest. Schedules can range from 6-1, 10-4, 24-4. Heavy turnaround at times. You never know when an opportunity will come up.
Get experience, become well rounded employee, lots of OT
Long hours, long days in the hot or cold, bad communication
