    I worked at W.G. Clark Construction as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Education and training supported to earn advancement. Long time veterans valued for their experience. Diverse workforce, great crews, strong supervisors. Working one's way up and cross-training is the rule, rather than the exception.

    Though I left due to health resons, they made every effort to accomodate my issues and retain me. I felt valued as a member.

    Cons

    Need to cut the OT when temps exceed 90 degrees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Borrow from other crews to stay on track during extreme high temps, or catch up weekends.

    Pros

    they don't work outside of the puget sound area - so not much travel

    Cons

    Terrible to employees unless your related, friends. No room for growth. And they are terribly non-union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like other companies of your size

    Pros

    Good benefit package
    Loyalty to employees
    Family type work atmosphere

    Salary

    Cons

    Due to the economy the company has unfortunately had to reduce the number of people working for them as construction is one of the hardest hit industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for providing a great place to work and your continued support in these down economy times. I look forward to the future and better times.

    I have been working at W.G. Clark Construction

    Pros

    Not a bad place to work, when they have work, good as any in town for non union shop, fun jobs.

    Cons

    Seam to get rid of employees over 50
    must be relitive, friend or buddy or good brown noser to managment to keep working
    No loyalty to long time employees
    Few if any promotions, usually given on buddy basis not earned
    To much back stabbing and politic's
    few pay raises no reviews

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to be loyal to long time employees, they are your best asset for teaching and training the young, not good for you or the future to just lay them off after many years of loyal service when you do still have work, and tell them you have none.
