    Pros

    promotions with in the company are slow from lower positions. Management moves around a lot, Pay is low but checks always are good.

    Cons

    pay raises are almost impossible to get and pay rates are very low. Management only cares about the bottom line. Communication is very lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your drivers more encouragement and pay them for the job that they preform.

    Have some work and safety training programs in place.

    When 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.

    Probuild employees are dedicated, keep them around. Get rid of raises and move towards COLAs.

    Pros

    I could not share any Pro's for this company based on the Con's that I experienced. The hourly employees are great, but management is severely unprofessional and does not conduct good business.

    Cons

    Totally unprofessional. Sr. Management lies to you and keeps information from you. They expect someone to know all information regarding company but is unwilling to teach or train you. Good Luck to anyone who is brave enough to attempt to work here.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at ProBuild

    Pros

    Some great people are employed by Probuild. The problem is that there might be to many of them.

    Cons

    Seldom follow through with financial commitments to associates. Executive management always has the best intentions. They just aren't in place long enough to see it through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bigger isn't always better.....better is better
