    Pros

    Traveling, different jobs, different people.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about you. Virtually no training. Long periods with no work. If you don't know someone who works there that can show you the ropes then you are basically left to figure it all out by yourself. Sink or swim mentality. Non existent pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. Train your people. Communicate!

    Pros

    They made it sound like a good job...

    Cons

    They didn't tell me there were no hours for 3 months. They sent me on a 3 hour round trip but only paid me for the half day I was actually on site, but not for my wasted time on the road which equaled less than min wage. They call the job merchandising but it's actually construction so they can pay less.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest during the hiring process so as not to waste peoples' time. Telling someone they have a new job and then not having work till next year is BS.

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

    Pros

    I worked for their main competitor in the Atlanta area called PRG which has a horrible leadership team and racist HR team. My pay is 30% more doing the same job with this company and it has a great management support network.

    Cons

    None i am very satisfied in all aspects. The only con is i wish i would have told my former director at PRG to pack sand earlier. I love my job and i am finally appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to set the industry standard and run your main competitor out of business..Sweet revenge at its best.

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

    Pros

    They talk a good game in the presentation. The end product (work and place of work is not what is promised)

    Cons

    As a salaried employee they work you 50plus hours constantly, and then when there is no work, they furlough you. The point of salaried personnel is to have a consistent pay schedule. The companies inability to obtain work should not have a bearing on when they do have work, working their salaried employees to the bone. The owners are crying, yelling, idiotic second generation children, except for greg, who does seem to care.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you money comes from. You are only as good as your finished product, and you cannot have a great finished product without great employees.

    Pros

    Great people to work with

    Cons

    Long hours, relatively low pay for the amount of work required. Lack of communication sometimes between departments and upper management

    Advice to Management

    Ask the account executives their thoughts on changes being made. They are the center of the action between field, office and client. Pay to sales is 6 figures but the account executives (Project Managers) are the ones who do all the work to keep the clients happy and money coming in but get paid significantly less. Sales wines and dines them and Project management keeps all of their promises.

    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.
