    Nice place to work, so long as you're ready to.

    Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) Sherwood, OR

    ProsThe people I worked with were generally great to be around. The lab was clean and well-maintained. Safety was of the highest priority.

    ConsThe hours were long. I worked 10-hour days, and was still often the first one to leave for the day.

    Good Company

    Paving/Grading Laborer (Former Employee) Tangent, OR

    ProsIf you want to make money as a hourly employee, this is a great company. The pay scale is very bottom heavy. It takes a few promotions to make as much as you would as an hourly employee. If you work hard and are competant, there will be opportunity for you to advance. The company is increasingly concerned about safety which is a good thing.

    Conslike many other companies in the industry, somehow a few idiots have managed to be promoted to a point of incompetency. Summers will be very long hours and little chance of getting time off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAffirm the blue collar guys often. If they feel appreciated, they will work harder.

    Great Place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFun place to work with pretty good pay especially if able to work on overtime. Good benefits and a big company to work for.

    ConsWork is dependent upon the construction economy and therefore unstable and job security can be at risk when business is slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNotify and educate employees about oportunities for professional development and possibilities with moving up in the company and promotions/ work expectations

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
