    I have been working at Global Industries as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    As a customer, I ordered a wall A/C and Global sales person assured me it would arrive Monday (5/19/14) or Tuesday at the latest. Based on that condition, I placed the order. Then I called today, Monday, only to be told it would arrive Thursday instead. I called UPS, delivery scheduled for Thursday late afternoon. And I could pick it up in the morning bec. because Global restricted the order to delivery only.

    Cons

    Based on the awful service, they must not spend time training the employees. Either that or they are just plain dishonest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I asked to speak to a Global sales manager and was told not available.

    I OWN AND RENT APTS. --NEVER AGAIN, GLOBAL . . .

    Pros

    Great Experience.
    This company will expose you to important international projects and provide valuable on the job training that you can take with you elsewhere.
    Always looking forward and continues to invest for the future.
    Its an underdog with potential to make it big.

    Cons

    Terrible Pay. Bad.
    Long hours + complicated work + small pay = slave experience
    Bad project management team. They buckle a lot of pipe and drop a lot of easy passes.
    The Company is not "employee" oriented. They buy equipment and rent equipment. They are not so good with things that think for themselves and they consequently have turnover issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the quality of the employee's individual experience by really getting into the facts of that employees everyday activities. People look at Global as a "practice job." Try to make it just their "job", the one they look foward to working at.
