    Sr. Administrative

    Administrative (Current Employee)
    Dolores, CO

    ProsFellow employess are an asset and very reliable

    ConsWhen Probuild buys out failing companies that are failing, we tend to get rid of great Probuild employees and replace them with the faililng company employees that we just purchased.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProbuild employees are dedicated, keep them around. Get rid of raises and move towards COLAs.

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

    You get back what you put in!

    OSR (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat place to work, manager is excellent leader and open for any realistic suggestions! I have been in the industry for 20 years, and am used to having to "go get my check" so I think anyone beginning this position with the thought that, the customers come to you, is not going to make it!

    Consnone so far, like I said up top, you get back what you put in!

    Advice to Senior Managementpush for more funding to upgrade the restrooms, if your going to sell these products you should probably use them??

    The best company i've ever worked for...

    Field Improvement Specialist (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsUnder the new CEO, positive changes have been made to run the organization more efficiently and effectively.

    ConsThe downturn in the housing market makes work more difficult.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees. Without them, you don't have a job.

    Very positive experience with ProBuild.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsCEO is very employee oriented, but understands business is business. Strong company values and this has been validated with company saying "goodbye" to key employees that have crossed the line. Leadership is strong amongst roughly 40% of senior leadership with others somewhat hanging on somehow. Pay and benefits are solid.

    ConsAt the HQ level, company does not seem to be able to get out of the way of itself. Too many large projects that affect the field and never come to fruition. Great ideas, but lack of execution especially on the IT side which has little to no flexibility and/or business knowledge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImplement and execute before piling more on. Pretend it's your money that's being invested.

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

    Fairly Treated but a little hectic

    Assembler (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsGood Benefits, Management is patient and treats people well

    ConsNot much training, you have to kind of figure things out on your own. Long uncertain hours. You get off when the job is done there are no set times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave some work and safety training programs in place.
