    I worked at Beam Team full-time

    Pros

    Small company with a close knit, family style, relationships. Employees regularly interact with other departments within the business to help accomplish related responsibilities. Potential for growth in the industry.

    Cons

    Owners are also top executives which makes career growth limited. Family oriented with makes relationships just as important as execution of job duties. Can be political at times.

    Pros

    No office to go to.

    Cons

    Scheduled extra work for salaried employees only. Work day was supposed to be 10 hours per day 4 day work week. But company would schedule you for 5 days. They would short you employees on jobs and you would average 60 plus hours of work per week. Travel to jobs 2 or more hours away thus making a 10 hour day into a 16 to 18 hour day with no extra compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like people and don't lie to them. Many times they would schedule a crew knowing that some crew members would not show thus making the Crew Lead work extra hours without compensation.

    Pros

    Decent team leader. It was okay as far as a temporary job but nothing long term. One could definitely do better than The Beam Team.

    Cons

    They were bad about paying you for the hours that you worked and they screwed up my pay every other month. You work nights.

    Advice to Management

    Replace payroll.

    I worked at Beam Team part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You learn some new skills that is helpful with other work in merchandising.

    Cons

    Management promises promotion, but if you have any personal issue it is removed from the table. Regional Director never kept confidential information confidential, leads knew what was going on instead of person information referred to; Low pay raises, site reps started out higher pay than I did. absolutely no support or sympathy if you get into a jam.

    Advice to Management

    Hold all to confidentiality agreements, no one should know any field reps/leads business out in the workplace. If promising any kind of pay raise it should be put into writing first before agreed upon, same with offers for promotion. Have all regional Directors go out into the field and have them work on an actual project with the low level employees. I think this will give them some insights into what we actually do vs. micromanaging our work performances. And be careful with accusations by senior management, this is a slippery slope and may cause legal issues in the long run.... have actual and FACTUAL evidence, not rumor, conjecture or hearsay.

    I worked at Beam Team full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There used to be many reasons to WANT to work here and do a good job, and nearly all those have vanished!

    Cons

    Most of the Directors had NO clue to field operations as they never leave their comfortable home office unless directed to by their Manager in the Office; Scheduling has no clue on geography when plotting work; Senior Management in Alpharetta is not much more than a political machine; Human Resources Department is a joke when you take a problem to them, they will turn it around on you; Travel will book the cheapest hotel possible even when there is a great distance to commute to the job site.

    Advice to Management

    As owners of this Company, please get in the field, with the team that makes the money and profit for you and learn what really happens day to day. Used to be a good Company, but going down the tubes real fast with current structure and leaders in place!

    Pros

    Interesting work, always different projects, travel to different locations, meeting new people and learning new and different ways to achieve a final completion status

    Cons

    Management displays different rules for different people, if you are one of the favorites, you always get the better assignments, sometimes it seems to help more as to who you know and not what you know, always changing the mileage and maintenance payments procedures whatever they find a cheaper way, lots of wear and tear on your vehicle and they expect you to always have cash on hand to pay for tolls, equipment, etc..., and then will reimburse you for it,

    Advice to Management

    give the employees a better understanding of what they need to succeed, ie.....move up, make the office personnel more responsible for their end of the job, as far as having what you need to complete a job correctly,

    Pros

    Beginning pay rate is a bit higher than most in this field

    Cons

    Too much travel expected with no compensation for the time away from home. Staying at a nasty hotel in Nowhere-ville is not a treat as far as I can see and it means you're being away on a job 24 hours a day. You're only being compensated for the time at the store + a miserable per diem. You'll be staying at a hotel 2 states away from home for a week while someone from there is staying at a hotel 5 minutes from your home and working at the store you can see from your living room window. The mileage pay has just been re-assessed to the detriment of employees (although the very elaborate presentation claimed to the contrary). Unacceptable scheduling time frame: you receive the schedule for the following week on Friday evening. Until then, you have no idea whether you're working days or nights and whether you're working next door or 3 states over. Management disorganized and uncommunicative. Getting a response from a member of management is nearly unheard of unless they need something from you. If you complain about working conditions, dare to get sick and call out or call out for any reason at all you can expect swift retaliation in form of your schedule being empty for the following week ("bad Fido - no treat" management technique). The job leads show no concern for safe working conditions. A lot of accidents happen thanks to sheer carelessness.

    Advice to Management

    Long way to go before this is a company worth getting out of bed for.

    Pros

    Variety of work, See places, meet interesting people

    Cons

    Motels are poor, Living cost is expensive and most of paycheck goes to living on the road, hours are very long, no perks for salary employees on most jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Fuel is expensive when driving very long distances between jobs such as 8-16 jobs a week and can add up to being in the rears off set from income from week before and is tough to eat and buy fuel for being on the jobs. We are a growing company and this should not be a factor, as other companies are not having this issue.... I have seen my guy's struggle to eat, because of lack of funds, I have done it myself!

    Thank you for your feedback. The company pays for hotels, provides a per diem allowance for meals, and reimburses mileage at a rate that should cover at least double the cost of your gasoline. We ... More

    Pros

    Most of the bosses are brothers of the Hall family, and the company has a family environment. The people are friendly and helpful, and the work environment is positive.

    Cons

    There are not many cons of this job that wouldn't be present at any office job. As far as conditions that the company can control, they take good care of the employees and work is pleasant.
