    Former Employee - Flagger in Portland, OR

    Pros

    Can't think of anything....AT ALL.

    Cons

    Upper and Middle management talks out of both sides of their mouths, and throws anyone they can "under the bus"...to take the blame for their own incompetence. They hire to fire. Enormous turnover of employees; no one stays much more than one month. They only will top out slightly above minimum wage, hugely inexperienced "supervisory staff"...no benefits.No guarantee of working hours, no drive or travel time paid. Other employers in this field of work compensate their employees quite well. K & D TAKES THE CAKE of negativity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to business school.

    Pros

    I worked first as a flagger and also as a supervisor. Great company to work for! Pay was good, fair, and nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the equipment was older when I first started, but over the last 2 years, I have seen a large increase in good equipment.

    Pros

    There are no positive reasons to work for K & D.

    Cons

    Outrageously poor management of employees; They have abusive clientele; they promote the least able to perform well into "supervisory" status and title. The pay is below poverty level and without benefits. Run...don't walk away; run away. If you are a Flagger looking for employment; look everywhere and anywhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your people are your greatest assets. Treat them poorly; and you have what you currently have and deserve to have it.

    Current Employee - Traffic Flagger in Portland, OR

    Pros

    working out doors (in the summer), flexible, loads of funny stories, dispatch has always been great.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, most drivers hate you, it is very dangerous, no room for growth (you can have more responsibility but not for more money),

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is one of the biggest traffic control companies in the north west and it pays at least 2-3 dollars less than most of the other companies.

    Pros

    I was happy to work with a crew devoted to safety. My last job had lots of lazy people who didn't know what was going on, K&D always has their stuff together which is cool. K&D has some cool perks too in benefits.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but hey, it's fair market rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the organization, I like that.

    Current Employee - Flagger
    Current Employee - Flagger

    Pros

    The people you work with are usually pretty friendly, some can be annoying though. You typically never work night jobs which is a plus I suppose. You can almost get a day off anytime you need it.

    Cons

    Pay is not that great, a little above minimum wage with zero benefits, plus they do not pay mileage or gas for you to get to your jobsite for the day. There is an extremely high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually give your employees a livable income or benefits that will actually make people want to stay with the company. Companies with extremely high turnover rates are not trusted as much when trying to get contracts, etc.
