    Pros

    There are some really good people to work with out here. Pay isn't terrible but could still be better.

    Cons

    Tend to overload people with work instead of hiring a couple more people, management fight over who is in control with other management, management talk down upon workers and frown upon being asked questions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the people doing the labor, don't let lower management literally degrade and talk down to the laborers

    Pros

    Good people, adequate pay, strict safety program

    Cons

    Nepotism, preferential treatment, hard to get on a rec because of family hiring family, favoritism, low paying compared to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the hiring practices !!! There will soon be a discrimination lawsuit or two headed your way if you don't ! I would not refer anyone to this company except as a last resort.

    Pros

    Turner works with difference kinds of technical ,technology, and that make Turner a good Company to work for getting experience that could let to a better future.

    Cons

    My experience at Longview with Turner life me with a bad taste, it's seem to be Family promotive that decimate against other. I' work hard and still got lay off for no reason what so ever, person's of color with License or experience that have 'n got Lay off, even if they had more Time with Turner. That why if become more Diverse in there Management ,and leadership the future for Turner will be Brite.

    I worked at Turner Industries

    Pros

    They actually care about their employees. They make you feel like a person and not just a number. They really care.

    Cons

    Like all contractors at Turner I found that you they don't have always have tools and material they should so that you are able to do your job in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your green help better because they put everyone around them at a high risk of getting hurt.
