Do it for the $$$$

Directional (Former Employee)
Lafayette, LA

ProsThere is huge room for advancement. Nobody can hack it there because you work 300+ days a year. THey dont pay all that well as compared to other service companies. Spend a few years there and then bounce. They are so short handed, it is unreal.

ConsNo life, no time off.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive your guys some set time off.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
