    I have been working at Beam Team full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    BT is a great way to see the country and vary your surroundings. The pay is good and they are expanding work locations

    Cons

    Same thing that is the Pros. Depends on what you like in life

    I have been working at Beam Team part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wage is commensurate with my abilities.

    Cons

    Not full-time(lie) , too much travel (told I wouldn't travel more than 4 hrs --- I have traveled too far from home when there is work in the home base or closer). Travel reimbursement rate for mileage is a complete joke --- $0.25/mile --- the corporate avg is 45-50 cents / mile. Way too much travel.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs a course in logistics to better place workers where they are needed. Management lied to me about my initial employment status,how much I would actually travel , and when I qualified for insurance. Management goes out of their way to hire additional workers when they cant keep more veteran employees working on a consistent basis.

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

    Pros

    Decent compensation with opportunities to travel. Lots of on the job training and experiences to learn from. Not bad overall.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities for advancement in certain positions. Must use personal vehicle and rack up a lot of miles. No travel pay for long drives, most over 250-500+ miles. Very in consistent scheduling and hours.

    Advice to Management

    Notice your strong employees and give them the ability to grow within the company. Find a way to compensate your employees for travel.

    Pros

    I enjoy working in this field, I have been in this industry for over 10 years and love working on different projects weekly and even daily.

    Cons

    They want complete open availability but will not give you enough work to justify being available.

    If you request time off for any reason (wife needed surgery and I put the request in 3 months in advance ) they consider it an insult and won't give you work for months because of this.

    Also word to the wise, they don't have to fire you. They can simply not schedule you for work for months on end until you find other employment.
    That's how they cut down their staffing or get rid of people that are more expensive to travel from.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees! You want / need people to take care of last minute project but you treat us like slaves and ignore most of your employees afterwards. Also any accrued vehicle maintenance fund vacation time or sick pay is all gone when they let you go you do not get paid for any of it
