    I have been working at C.W. Matthews full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The upper management seems to take a great interest in education of employees, resulting in a strong emphasis on education over experience.

    Cons

    Middle management does not seem to share in upper management beliefs concerning education of employees, as they are under the constant pressure to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    This communication breakdown between upper and middle management proves to create a barrier for lower level employees to advance by gaining education.

    Pros

    None that come to mind in writting this review.

    Cons

    First of all I would like to stat that before being hired at C.W. i turned down a position for a better paying construction job as a operator. When i first start i was put with a crew as nothing more then as a flagger. Having years of experience as an operator i felt this was just temporarily until they can get me in to a piece of machinery. This wasnt the case. I started looking for a position after one month. Sadly the position with the other company was filled. They work you long hour , day and night and back day again. This makes for a rough family life. But they dont pay for drive time. They often allow unqualified employees that have worked there aslonger the ability to drive vehicle they shouldnt be to allow them more hours and you a qualified individual sit side seat. Dont waste youre time.

    Advice to Management

    Less superintendents. You dont need to guys thinking they know everything on a job with two foreman trying to work.


  3. Needs major management work.

    Pros

    Lots of over time work.Stable company to work for.High pace work environment constantly changing job sites working in all types of weather.

    Job is weather related,not much work when it's cold, raining work load slows in winter.Summer Is the busy time of year mostly night work.

    Although it's a good company to work at they should give all vacation during summer not just foremen and upper management so all can enjoy family vacation

    I worked at C.W. Matthews full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    C.W. Matthews is a great place to work if you have few other options. Good for giving people a second chance that they might have gotten other places in the workforce.

    Cons

    Very little work/life balance however the majority of the employees here do not have other options or bargaining power to demand additional benefits at the laborer level--I'm sure it improves as you rise through the channels

    Pros

    CWM strives to be the employer of choice for our people while always maintaining a fair balance between corporate citizenship and profitability. To maintain our position in this market we must be the low cost provider of quality transportation projects and materials.

    Cons

    Our available work days are based mainly on the weather, when the weather is good we work long hours.

    Pros

    Better pay than local competitors.

    Cons

    Bad managment. Poor commuincations. Long hours for salary personel, such as myself. With little to no compensation. And being the scape goat for middle managments mistakes and short comings.

    Advice to Management

    To better observe the middle managments actions. And take more time observing the real men and women who make this company run from day to day.
