    I have been working at Charah full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great safety program, new equipment, good people to work around at the hourly employee level.

    Cons

    safety isn't first. No matter how many "zero tolerance" rules are broken, depending on who you are, you get a pass while hourly employees are fired on the spot. safety specialists who have zero experience and zero knowledge, blindly leading employees into termination. osha violations by safety staff only further their career.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people in the field that actually do the job. Blindly hiring people that have zero experience because of the overwhelming growth is not the answer. Some of your safety specialists are lazy, incompetent and have zero knowledge. They break more rules than anyone else while their management pretends to do their job. Maybe listen to site level people when it comes to those folks.

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

    Pros

    Loyal to people who give them 100%. They demand a lot but you can get a lot. Family owned and operated

    Cons

    Lots of late night phone calls and emails. Family life can be asked to be put on hold for big projects

    Advice to Management

    Other companies have more incentive programs to push the boundaries. For both the managers and hourly staff.

    Pros

    Great team environment. Sites I have worked at have a management team that helps you succeed.

    Cons

    Corporate office is in Ky which can make communicating a little difficult

    Advice to Management

    Visit all sites as often as you can to build relationships with the crew members.

    Pros

    Pay is ok. Made good friends. Schedule is a little flexible.

    Cons

    Seems that the higher ups in management know how to run a brand new operation more efficient than the people that already work it and have made the appropriate changes. LOTS OF FAVORITISM. Can't refer anyone to job because of favoritism (basically, if you aren't part of the "club" then we don't care) New ideas aren't welcome. Open door policy is non existent. The safety culture is subject to change depending on production, again, if not moving fast enough then safety doesn't matter anymore.

    Advice to Management

    We are not robots, we are people. This is not high school, this is the real world. Get to know your employees and take note when you have lots of seniority quit and get new jobs. If that is happening then something needs to change.

    Pros

    Company does pay employees well.

    Cons

    Management will fire anyone who attempts to do their job correctly and management who works under him will lie and decieve to cover up management error

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that does not treat their employees as pawns and dismiss them when they will not cover up for managements mistakes.
