    I worked at Construction Testing & Engineering part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Easy to get your foot in the door and gain experience in this industry.

    Cons

    Poor organization, pathetically low wages, and strange policies had me running for other companies ASAP. They want legally unnecessary certifications that are costly to pay for, though they will reimburse you, you have to stay with them for like 2 years or they will deduct the cost from your paycheck. They have weird policies, and they are deceptive when it comes to opportunities for you to grow as an employee and how much money you could make.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how other companies operate and get it together! Streamline everything.

    The inadequate distribution of work and projects to certain individuals. Useing unqualified and licensed individuals on certain projects. The compensation to the employeees is not adequate..

    Advice to Management

    Training must be the main focus of management in order to keep and retain the most qualified individuals. They must be rewarded financially.
