hectic work environment, some communication issues

There was always learning opportunities. My supervisor made sure that if we had any issues, questions or needs...that he was available. Most of the coworkers were pleasant. The site superintendent had anger issues, however, he was quite difficult and abusive with communications. Thankfully, I personally had minimal contact with him, I believe it would have made working there very difficult.

working enviroment

The company has gone down considerably these days due to a lack of investment in the right type of worker and good tools.There is way too many apprentice and not enough qualified carpenters. As a result it can become very frustrating to work in that type of environment.

Pros

Decent pay checks

Cons

Working with young employees that dont want to be there at all.
