    Pros

    Large, corporate company. Good benefits and lots of training opportunities.

    Cons

    Be leary of positive reviews - they ask their favorites to write positive things to offset the harsh truths. Everything here is about squeezing one more dollar out of the customer and constantly doing more with less. You’ve got to make money for the shareholders, regardless of the cost to employees. There's an attitude that they're better than everyone else. There is NO work/life balance, regardless of what they try to sell you. If you’re salary expect to work 50 - 60 hours every week, no exceptions. If you’re hourly you’d better not cross 40 hours but you’d best get all of your work done. Your family, and any time you take off to be with them, will be used against you - they're "distractions" especially if you're a woman. It's so bad that even as a man, the attitude towards women is hard to not notice. You can’t have an opinion unless it’s in line with upper management. They don't like to be challenged, even if done so privately. The problem is always you, never them.

    I worked at ColonialWebb full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They paint a glamours picture of the company but read cons ....

    Cons

    Lies, lies and liars.... DON'T SIGN PROMISSORY NOTE "Sign on bonus" it's a rip. You must work 24 months to pay it off. If not they take you to court to get all the money back. IT IS A BACK STABBING COMPANY. Everybody to Techs and management is working against you. You use your vacation days for slow or no work days. Full time hire but only work part time. Jobs locations are two to six drives each day. All the Chicken slaughter houses and Food distribution companies hate Colonial Webb and they preferred you would not come back, but you service them under contract. As a tech I did every body elses job but mine. Office does not communicate where to go on a day to day basis. For the most you just to find work to survive. I was told by one tech not to come back to a particular job site, so he could have more work through out the week. Company vehicle kept breaking down and I had to take vacation time to pay my non work days. You work by yourself on dangerous projects with no back up help.

    Cons

    DO NOT SIGN A PROMISESARY NOTE for a bonus. It’s a rip off. The contract put you on a bad deal and the company wins. You have to pay the note even if you don’t receive the bonus !!!!!! Once hire nothing but lies from management. Work was cut back to part time. Using vacation days to get by for no work. Travel to work was 2 to 6 hours drive. With new baby the, wife hated the alone time. Not to mention the unorganized office women. They didn’t know what to do on a job daily basis. The vacation days on payroll were three weeks behind. Once you in with the techs they have no problems throwing a knife in your back. I was kindly threaten not to return to another tech customer because I would put him out of a job. Since only one tech could work at this job site. Regardless of how safety minded they are, you still work in very dangerous situations. No backup help. It’s like pulling teeth to get a tech. The only customers they have are chicken slaughter, plants are sinking nasty.
