    great co-workers, opportunities for networking

    Cons

    poor management in terms of employee opinions and room for growth

    Advice to Management

    your employees are people, not just numbers in the system or bodies to fill positions, treat them kindly and with respect, listen to opinions and recommendations, do not lie or re-direct conversations, uphold promises and follow through with your intentions, guide your employees toward success - do not pigeon hole people into positions they did not apply for

    I worked at Amspec Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and that's about it.

    Cons

    Where to begin, Management seems to always have their favorite crew. Drugs and Alcohol are a constant problem among management and it's clearly impacting morale. If you start without experience you will struggle to get a raise. Some people haven't gotten any in years. If you want to succeed you have to be a family member or brown noser. Turnover is ridiculous and the blame is all too often on the field personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Management in the Houston area is a joke. Need to be looked at since and dealt with.

    I have been working at Amspec Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You have your own truck. Pay is also decent, but that’s as good as it gets. No future beyond that. My field coworkers are nice people and some of the supervisors as well. Company is going at a tepid rate.

    Cons

    Our upper management has no additive experience. No exp/education needed to become director. Big brown-noseing will get you promoted. The only way to get into management. There’s not much interaction with management. Their never there at the office.

    Advice to Management

    More Drug and alcohol test highly recommended. Not urine, but hair. Hire people with experience.
