    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great local employees and manager

    Cons

    mandatory meetings daily in the afternoon even when not necessary or could conference in, low salary, no where near enough car allowance to cover gas and wear and tear on your car. Also there is never enough workers to fill your orders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on recruiting more instead of micromanaging the current sales reps every minute of the day.

    Former Contractor - Marine Electrician in Bremerton, WA

    I worked at Tradesmen International as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    base pay is $20/hr plus a "chance" at overtime, "or time and a half". Benefits kick in 3 months.

    Cons

    Contract, which means that they can let you go at any time....Do the work and they still can let you go. Be weary of the Management, even if you have good intentions, they still can let you go. The benefits are ok, but that is if you can use them before they let you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try reaching out to the Contractors that do the work.
