      Negative Outlook

      I worked at Construction Specialties full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Decent work environment. Pay was pretty good. Nice facility

      Cons

      Management is lacking people skills and leadership. They overlook bad work habits on account of racial pressure. Manual labor is in way to much excess( weight required to lift)

      Advice to Management

      Get some real leaders!

      Neutral Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Construction Specialties full-time

      Pros

      Very friendly people - understanding, flexible, generous. The work environment varies enough to keep it interesting

      Cons

      People only leave when they retire, for the most part, so it makes it very difficult to try to move up from your current position. Also somewhat hard to get training to improve your skills

      Advice to Management

      Don't be afraid to spend some money to upgrade systems - some of them are ancient

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Construction Specialties

      Pros

      They treat their employees well. They have many long tenured people and are very loyal to them. The work environment is great and they are always trying to improve. Great environmental record and leads the industry in all aspects.

      Cons

      Sometimes too loyal to employees. If you work hard, try to do the right thing, and put in your time you'll eventually move up. They don't always promote the best people, and it can take a couple of years for them to correct such errors.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work. Never lose your innovative spirit, its been a great pleasure to have worked with you.
