    Do not take your employees out and have them pay for your drinks and meals as well as their own. Additionally, speak to and treat your employees with respect.

    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not one. What a joke. They don't tell you everything up front.

    Cons

    After I was hired I was told I had to pay $9000 into my own unemployment before I made a penny in commission. This took an average of 6 months. If you not young sinal person, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up.

    I worked at Tradesmen International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only pro was the other two people in the office seemed nice

    Cons

    Went to apply for a job in Kentucky and I heard the tall guy who I think was the manager talking about how old I was. Then I kept hearing him talk about how all construction workers are pieces of crap. I then interviewed with another guy but never mentioned it tohim. If this "manager" cares that little about his applicants then I would bet he treats his employees bad.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring managers that are sleezy car salesmen types
