    I worked at Performance Contractors

    Pros

    Good hourly pay, some friendly people, relaxed work environment, company vehicles are well taken care of and safety harnesses are in good condition.

    Cons

    Still haven't received my first check, been over a month, payroll department and job sight are lost in their own world, going to have to file a wage claim with the labor board to get my money, do not work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and stop sleeping at your desk, and answer the phone when I call you, so tired of leaving voicemails that never get a callback.

    I worked at Performance Contractors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay is great, per diem is good too. They have work for the next few years in different locations around the US.

    Cons

    The company reputation is going down the drain. If you are not related to someone important, dont even bother; very few "outsiders" move up or even last there very long. If you are not from Baton Rouge, LA or any of the surrounding parrishes, hang it up. Cliques and family rule the jobs. Safety is preached to employees, but when it comes down to the bottom line, they will throw safety out of the window every time. Use caution accepting a job with Performance Contractors, turnover is the highest I have ever seen, EVER. When i started the job the employee numbers for the project were in the 13,000's; when i left, ten months later, the numbers had jumped to almost 21,000. The maximum number of employees on the job at any given time is about 2500, so you could say the manpower turned over 3 times in ten months. you have been warned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are REAL people with REAL families. You cannot actually take the phrase "the beatings will continue until morale improves" literally. You have got to start caring about the little guy, they make your company successful, not just you, sitting in an office.

    I worked at Performance Contractors as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    They pay better than other contract companies for firewatch and helpers. They are also helpful at finding additional work. They are very safety oriented.

    Cons

    You work a lot of hours and don't get many days off so be prepared for a heavy work load. Also one of my bosses had a strong bias against women in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hate on women.

    I have been working at Performance Contractors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    On time and material jobs there good to work for.
    The majority of employees that work for them are good people.
    If you are in management their bonuses are fantastic.

    Cons

    They preach safety but as a company they do not promote a safety culture.
    They are very cliquish company if you're not in the clique you will not be around long.
    As a individual you are only a number they're only interest in you is to make them money. they do not get to know you on a personal basis.
    They do not give you the tools or support you need to complete the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees. You should give your employees some incentive to work towards you should treat your employees as if their part of the family. You need to take a step back and look at your management they are unsuccessful in making you money why do you repeatedly give them jobs
