    Cons

    Being in a construction position, the workload is driven by the market and seasons. As was expected, there can be long hours in the spring/summer/fall when weather and conditions are at their most ideal.

    Advice to Management

    A somewhat warmer (temperature) office would mean better productivity and focus from desk employees.

    I have been working at American Fence Company full-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in daily!! Have not quite been employed here for a year yet, but it has already been leaps and bounds better than my previous employer/position! Clean and professional, yet still knows how to have fun at work!

    Cons

    Pace is a little slower than previous job, which is due to the season change. This will all be over soon enough, as the seasons change!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing exactly what you are!
