    Days seem very long if it us a slow day. Not getting to work much mostly just sitting around waiting for people to check in to well site

    Advice to Management

    Management was very good, maybe a little more communication between staff and management when it comes to the schedule

    Pros

    If you like to work outdoors in all kinds of weather, this is the job for you!

    Cons

    Standing for 12 hours in the hot sun on hot pavement with no breaks. Managers could not provide proper addresses or directions to job sites. Would not pay for travel mileage as promised, pay checks constantly short in hours. Nine managers in less then two years?

    Advice to Management

    More involvement in your satellite offices, know what's going on! Hire competent staff!

    Pros

    Challenging, Working outdoors .Knowing you are able to create a safe working environment for road crews is rewarding

    Cons

    Very low pay for the job that is being asked of you. No benefits.The expectation is that you work like a well oiled machine that never tiers doesn't need to eat or go to the bathroom..Union fees are over the top! & you get nothing until you are full time...Hard to become full time because the don't give you enough working hours to qualify.

    Advice to Management

    It will be some time before humans will be replaced by machine in this job. Perhaps taking care of your greatest asset should be a priority!

    Pros

    I have been with AWP for several years and they continue to grow and get better, they take safety very seriously, you can become full time in about a year so you can get paid vacation, paid holidays and health benefits. Best part is working outside and always in different locations so you don't get bored. Recently new management has made things even better, and appreciation for the workers is very obvious now.

    Cons

    All companies have bad points, I don't care where you work. It can get hot in the summers and cold in the winters, and days can be long depending on which client you work for, and breaks are never guaranteed. It is a construction environment so sometimes there are no bathroom facilities onsite.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to ask for a raise but I know this is restricted by our union. Maybe more incentive programs for going above and beyond.
