Learning to fly

The only time employee compensation increases is when people quit the company or there is a panic that people may leave and go work at a company that actually pays a fair market wage. There is definitely no training or annual review for employee development and any training or education is considered a waste of time and money. If you want a company with culture, this is not the place. Once you work there you will realize there is no proper HR department and just like most things on site it is a disorganized mess where everything is done on the fly.

Pros

Good few of guys on site

Cons

Pay, training

Lots of work but an absolute disaster on site

Job work life balance - you work 7am or maybe later depending on the superintendent, nothing is standardized in the companySalary - you get a union wage and union benefits, but most union works are slow and not very productive and there is little to no supervision, if you are a hard worker you gotta talk to other employees and find out how to get more moneyJob security - you can get laid off in an hours notice, if you get laid off you may get sent to another job. you never get sent to another job site its always a layoff and an absolute messAdvancement - there is no path for moving up, not sure how it happens because one superintendent didnt even pass the carpentry program and he runs a job site while others seem to work hard or came from another company. seems to be completely randomManagement - not sure if they exist, every job site is different and it seems to be a new choose your own adventure every timeJob culture - a great group of guys on site, there is no company culture tho, they dont seem to do anything unless someone quits and then it is very reactionary

Pros

lots of work and good guys on site

Cons

disorganization, management, training

Grass is greener at other companies in town

All these union companies are roughly the same, but some are a little worse than others. The hard part about working at Campbell was the reactionary decision making, everything is after the fact. Build something, nope now were are going to change how we are doing it again, and again. A lot of hard working people are underpaid and when people quite the company, a pay raise gets handed out to after the fact instead of treating people right from the start. There are some great people at the company, but on the other hand there is one superintendent who couldn't find their way into a paper bag and treats some employees in an abusive manner. Lots of micromanagement and confusion will guarantee you lots of work even if you have to build things a few times over and over again. There seems to be some decent people in the company but they are handcuffed in their ability to make any changes. Was fun working with various crews, some interesting projects but overall things are pretty disorganized with very little planning.A lot of information about this company is true about the job site disorganization, super on site does not show up to site half the time or takes off if it was anyone else they would be fired. There is a great group of guys on site but things are a mess more days than not. You only get a pension/retirement plan if you are in the union and will only give you an increase when people quit and owners get desperate. If you can get in the union, great. If you cant the benefits are some of the worst in the industry. Says a lot about how the company cares more about nickel-and-diming - 

Pros

Coworkers

Cons

Ownership, disorganization, culture
