I enjoyed the physical labor and the opportunity to learn a trade. They provided plenty of chances to accumulate over time work.
Management was pompous. Foremen were often grumpy and generally not enjoyable to be around. Safety considerations were sometimes a problem.
Advice to Management
Become more personable. Lead by example, not by verbal abuse and/or threats. Incorporate workers in a more thorough manner, please.
