    Pros

    I really enjoy the honest work and the fellow hard working employees. I love climbing and with a good work ethic have been able to advance myself quickly.

    Cons

    Drama in the ranks, superior bullying, and depressingly low pay. When your general foreman is only paid $17/hr it hurts any desire to see this job as anything more than short term. Also a con is having to literally risk your life each day working in close proximity to live power lines for peanuts.

    Advice to Management

    When I first started I was told the pay scale and was shocked. Starting pay was $10/hr and the pay slowly went up from there. My immediate thought was each position needed to be at least a dollar higher. I love the work, and am good at it, but with some of my coworkers being here 15-20 years before they make foreman, it is not a career but a high school job.

    Pros

    The only pro is the wage in comparison to the other similar companies.

    Cons

    The company bullies, harasses, and retaliates against employees. Everyone wants to punish others. If you are one minute late for work, you will be sent home for 3 days with no pay. The harassment, lies, and backstabbing are so rampant, with the increasing lawsuits, BOLI complaints, and employment complaints and the daily employee turnover rate, How is this not a red flag for the government to step in and fine this company. The owners made over $75,000 in safety bonus while the actual person in danger made $100. With the number of days off compared to the days worked, a person cannot make a living. The average weekly pay for a flagger at this company during summer is $130., winter is $50.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage, all employees need sexual harassment, management training.

    Pros

    Learn Good skills, fed my family for 10 years, great co workers, (tree trimmers are the best)

    Cons

    Advancement is very limited, unless you're a son, or a friend. pay is very limited for highly skilled work, disrespectful gf's (supervisors) who only care about covering their own backsides, they would rather fire someone with a family than report an accident.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother, it's good ole boy network, at its finest. A real family business emphasizes FAMILY.
