    I worked at BELFOR Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company vehicle although you are constantly tracked, cell phone

    Cons

    Worst corporate culture I have ever seen. Disgruntled employees everywhere, minimal salaries with a bonus structure no one really understands. Constantly beating up subs to make corporates 35%, fighting with home owners due to sub part work, fighting with corporate to get subs paid. Truly a mess of a company, incredibly high turn over due to stressful work environment

    Advice to Management

    Sell out to a professional company that values employees and quit the whining Sheldon... change the bonus structure and maybe the back biting will slow down...

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

    Pros

    Job is relatively easy and educational learning tid bits of info here and there. The help you get a class E license if you do not have one when applying.

    Cons

    Chaotic. Everyrone is everywhere and no ones on the same page ever. Expected to be 2 places at the same time when your out on a job, they expect you you to be at the shop getting everything done there. If they don't think you are working out they won't give you a heads up or advice they will just drop you. Especially if it's close to holidays so you won't be paid.

    Advice to Management

    Get your commutation together and treat your employees more supportively.

    Review with local management what the processes are that are expected of staff
