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

    Pros

    You get to work in different locations with different crews very frequently

    Cons

    Office personnel are VERY unorganized. Company makes offers and promises and never follows through. Too much disagreement over hours worked and drive time causing severe pay discrepencies

    Advice to Management

    Only hire former "flaggers" and employees who had to work their way up to management so they know what the TCS on the road in the work zones are going through. Actually follow through with the open door policy you claim to have. Listen to your employees and try to help solve whatever their problem may be.

    Pros

    A lot of hours if you want them! Not hard at all!

    Cons

    Management sucks from top to bottom! No benefits, no paid vacations. They really don't want you to have any days off. Part time job, but full time hours!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like you would like to be treated!

    Pros

    You do not have to use your personal vehicles for work use.

    I worked at AWP part-time

    Pros

    Hard Labor is minor , if you pay attention and dont screw up decent time at job

    Cons

    Schedules go out anywhere from the end of day at your current job to 1130 at night for 430 start times at times. Pay is low for what they ask of you and Management is ill equipped

    Advice to Management

    Keep your jobs consistent with Contractor foreman and AWP drivers and flaggers. Schedule Jobs at least as many days as a contractor predicts they will need to be done witha job and keep same crew with that job.

    I have been working at AWP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company vehicle, paid vacation, hours are good most of the time. Quarterly bonuses. Getting to meet new people

    Cons

    They don't seem to appreciate their good employees (which aren't many) the ones that actually do their job the correct way are far and few between. Quality of employees are poor. Basically you are just a number. Turnover rate is extremely high. It's all about numbers in corporate land in Ohio. The people that actually go out and make the company money they could care less about. The training is useless. You can't teach traffic control by sitting in a classroom and taking tests. They are very eager to terminate you if you make any mistake. I take pride in my job and do it as if I owned the company myself. Hard workers aren't appreciated. They focus only on the negative and not the positive things you do. Customers complain all the time about AWP employees. They have the attitude that just because AWP is the biggest means that they are the best..

    Advice to Management

    Everything listed above. Focus more on your better employees because they are what keep you in business.

  8. "It's ok"

    Pros

    Long hours if you like to work outdoors in any kind of weather and you are standing 10 to 12 hours a day

    Cons

    Long hours but get suspended for working more than 16 hours. If you don't like working outdoors then this isn't the job for you

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises would be nice because I know what other flagged get paid in the company and they are doing the same thing as me and they are getting paid more
