Project Manager (Current Employee)

ProsBELFOR is the World Leader in Disaster Restoration. Certifications are offered in all fields of mitigatioin and remediation for all employees. I have read some above reviews and employees commenting on long hours. Its the industry and not the individual companies that is so demanding.
Mother nature does not have a timetable, she strikes at anytime and we must respond with all hands on deck...this is a 24/7/365 a yr business and it is only for the strong!! I am certain that when you interviewed with BELFOR it was explained. BELFOR is the best Disaster Restoration company in World for a reason...I lOVE IT!!!

ConsMY WIFE WOULD BE THE FIRST TO SAY IT......The benefits BELFOR offers are terrible!!! 7 billion dollars a yr in revenue and crappy medical coverage.

Advice to Senior ManagementSheldon is amazing...I have met him at a few Mangers meetings and he is one of us!!! Please listen to the employees in the field more..They are our biggest asset. The GM's BLOW ALOT OF SMOKE up peoples rear ends and have only their own best interest in mind. This is a fact across the board. Maybe an employee survey and actions regarding the survey is a good place to start.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
