    Pros

    You don't have to worry about getting laid off because of the lack of work in your area.

    Cons

    You are sometimes looked down upon by other trades because they see you as just a temporary worker.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be a little bit more care into who they hire and allow on board with their company.

    Pros

    Good Industry. Co-workers are great. They provide you with a cell phone and tablet. Good base salary if your an entry level sales person around. Your allowed to drink alcohol during at the office.

    Cons

    Micro managing to another level. you must log at least 30 contacts a day in the crm system. They want you to log a note after you hit each door. They tell you will get fired if you dont. If your customers dont pay you on time and your not successful in collecting you will get fired. If you dont fill out the paperwork correctly you will get fired. You must come in to the office daily at 3pm.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest during the hiring process and dont promise and under deliver.Dont tell reps you can make six figures in the first year. Dont threaten employees on a daily basis. Its hard to focus on selling when your worried about getting fired all the time.

    Pros

    If you are looking to just remain a construction worker... great.. steady work... good pay... many different projects available. but if you are looking to advance your career beyond your basic skills??? not possible

    Cons

    Non compete agreement will limit your career advancement. and since they have accounts with most premium contractors... advancing to a reputable employer is nearly impossible without a legal battle.

    Advice to Management

    Non existent. almost all management jobs for Tradesmen International are not construction related. If your desire is to be a construction manager is your goal find a different skilled trades company.

    Pros

    They pay very well, again when there's work. I'm fairly new with them so for now I don't know how their time off policy works?

    Cons

    Having available and steady work for myself in particular. Promotions and or compensation has never been a problem. As a matter of fact, the company has a promotion going that if we refer someone and it works out the company will give a monetary reward?

    Advice to Management

    When talking to and negotiating with potential clients, try and sell the skill set of apprentices more for current and future projects. These workers need the opportunity to prove their worth and by doing so will be the future journeymen of tomorrow?

    Pros

    Laid back office crew. Could be fun at times, good money can be made if your clients pay on time. Good place to get into sales if you have never done it before.

    Cons

    Management needs to step up their game and really see whats going on and actually working with reps to help them become successful. Managers should be required to be in the field so they can see whats going on first hand. Recruiters are not very concerned with your open orders and are more concerned with bigger or larger bill rate orders. You have to collect payment from the clients within 30 days or they will dock your commissions. You are selljng for the most part the construction workers that cant or are to lazy to find jobs of their own and don't always work out on site or they don't show up resulting in the client not using anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Actually attend your big meetings with big clients. Lower your bill rates to be competitive with the competition. Know what your managers are actually doing because most half a $$ it and provide no support and kill sales by driving office moral down.

    Pros

    Could be a fun environment to work in if better management were in place. Some offices seem to be better since they have better leaders in place. I would have loved the work if I were compensated better and had better leadership.

    Cons

    Low pay for the hours that you are asked to put in. High turn over within the whole company. My office didn't really care about the field employees. Sexual Harassing environment seems to be fine with upper management. Not enough work for the field employees. They say they are entitled to benefits, but if they do not have enough work hours, they are not eligible.

    Advice to Management

    Better follow up with employees on how local managers are treating their employees. Better Management should be in place throughout.
