Apprentice Electrician II (Current Employee), Urbandale, Iowa – September 26, 2014
Pros: they hand out unemployment like its their sole purpose of being a company
Cons: see the entire review below.
work here if you're interested in: low pay (currently paid same rate as a laborer and i'm a 2nd year apprentice), unreliable work if they don't feel like putting in the effort to find you a job, a 2-3 month process to get a raise with no compensation unless you threaten to quit, a boss that you can call for literally 2 weeks once a day and never receive – more... a call back, and an overall lack of respect towards you. The plus side is that when you call frustrated to management (and they actually answer for once) they will give you a run around and smooth talk you into thinking that they treat you like a king. All of this is topped off with a contract restricting the employer from hiring you to their company. – less
It went good until the last job I accomplished they didn't pay me my last check.
Tradesman (Current Employee), Omaha, NE – August 30, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: hard working conditions
Typically I would start the day by traveling to the job site. I learned how to level pillars doing concrete, I have learned how to run pipe and wire in industries, I have learned how to do driveway and porches in concrete. I have learned when you and a co-worker work hard together you can accomplish a lot more then by yourself. The hardest part of this – more... job would have to be the long hours and the weather conditions. The most enjoyable part would have to be the hard work and the opportunity to see the construction and the proper built to buildings and housing. – less
Electrician Assistant/ construction labor (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, IN – August 20, 2014
Pros: i cant think of any
Cons: good pay at times if you work in city
I have Seen this company over the span of four years. I worked for the so called "old system of management" back in 2011 and again briefly in 2014. It would seem natural for me to compare my experiences and contrast the old from the new but put simply the company is the same OLD tradesman International. A typical day at work is like this, 1. driving – more... unpaid for miles with a circus of people stuffed into all compartments of your vehicle 2. working for a full day part day or not at all. 3. driving back for what seems like double the miles unpaid toward a Walmart parking lot to 4. drop off this clown show of a carpool. 5. Going home calling tradesmen making sure you need to work the next day 6. waiting for them to ask" oh your not working " as if this is something management shouldn't know" 7. letting them catch up on whats going on and finally if your lucky 8. being sent back out to the site just long enough to pay off the $60 gas you had to borrow against your paycheck to put toward the total $250 a week gas cost. I am sure someones thinking to themselves "this is not the experience i had" my answer to that is your experience was the exception not the norm.
In conclusion if you have to work for this company keep it close to your home town and don't ever get comfortable with this place it is like a bad girlfriend she might play up all nice and sexy for a time but slowly she will take back 10x what she gave! – less
Payroll clerk (Former Employee), Macedonia, OH – August 12, 2014
Pros: 90% of the people are very friendly, easy work, cafeteria
Cons: horrible management, low pay, 100% tolerance of harassment
I worked in the corporate office in the payroll department. Anyone who is reading this take my advice and DO NOT work here. I was harassed just about every day by someone in my department. This person also harassed numerous people multiple times. I documented every incident and brought it to the HR department. I even had a witness. The head of HR basically – more... brushed me off and didn't care so I decided to go to the CFO. He basically said he couldn't do anything. After an uphill battle this person who flipped people off and cursed at them in a "professional" work environment only got one write up. This place is a joke. At least the payroll department is. The only thing I liked about the place was my managers and the people I talked to there. Even though my managers didn't do anything about my harassment they were still very nice. This is my honest opinion about this place. I actually did advance in the company a little bit but I couldn't take the non stop bullying and the extremely low pay. – less
