Good money and benefits if you like to get dirty
Good money and benefits but very dusty and hard labour to start. Lots of room to move up in the company. Lots of training and lots of different things to do.

Great company before the merger
Culture and benefits changed after the merger. No job security after the merger. Everybody felt like they are walking on eggshells. First 10 years was amazing.

Very poor management and overall working environment if you want a work life balance
Not a good company to work for. Management will do all they can to not help. Will say they are a safety driven business. But want you to work pass you HOS on a regular basis. Dispatch will pressure you as well, which they are directed by management. It is a union environment that will take your money but will not assist you if mangement tried to push you out if you do not listen to them when you voice your right about unsafe working condition

Paid well with decent benefits
constantly making cutbacks that affected morale. One person was paid to do three jobs at the salary of one person. Great coworkers, management made decisions purely based on money saved
Pros
paid well

Team environment with potential for advancement
Strong emphasis on operational experience and P&L knowledge. Interests in heavy equipment and construction would be of value. Flat organization requires you to take on responsibility early in your career.
Pros
Workout Facilities
Cons
Travel

Prefer not to give review
Good experience other than working with the odd lunatic. A lot more waiting around than actual work but sometimes that is expected in construction. Would work with them again but not the same crew I was with nor doing the same job I had.

my review
Is a great company to work for however due to moving do not want to commute.
The days changed as I moved locations for them allot. Could be scaling operators and then filing/bookwork. Or at a different location depending on the weather could be vice versa.

The job was good as the people were very nice and helpful in training and if an emergency came up were always there to count on.

Hardest part was bouncing from location to location.

Poorly managed company
Besides decent pay, it is a disorganized and mismanaged company that does not promote professional growth. Lack of inter department communication and succession planning resulting in a tense work environment.
