Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate the long hours you worked and paying you on time is the least we could do.
All employees are paid in full for all hours worked. There may be the rare occasion that an error was made on a check but it is rectified immediately. Our backhoes and excavators are all 1-3 years old and upgraded regularly. Older specialty equipment and all highway vehicles are well maintained and taken out of service for repairs.
We are a federally regulated company under hours of service legislation so we have no choice but to follow federal rules. We wish we didn't have to but we do.
We are well aware of who made this comment and unfortunately as an employer we can be bashed on the internet and have no recourse whatsoever and can only comment in general terms so a wise person should consider this when forming an opinion.
Most of our employees are long term and we appreciate their hard work and loyalty.
ZN Services has always and will continue to pay living allowance when any employee is working away from the main office or yard they are designated to report to overnight. We have several long term employees with decades of experience in telecommunications that are very happy to work for us and we feel very fortunate to have them on our team.
Experience is very valuable but it isn't everything. On occasion we have employed seasoned linemen (and other positions) with a wealth of knowledge and experience but a complete lack of motivation to work hard or get along with coworkers and even some refusing to do certain tasks believing it was beneath them. We have weeded those employees out because we believe it is everyone's responsibility to pitch in to get the job done and that everyone deserves to be treated with respect by their coworkers.
We value a good work ethic and positive attitude and aim to train these types of people to learn new positions because new skills are much easier to teach than changing a person's negative attitudes.
We make no apologies for this and will continue to ensure that all employees are treated with respect and no one stands around watching while others do the work.
Thank you. Glad you enjoy your job and I hope you are still with us,
