    I have been working at DAVACO part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Paid travel expenses.
    *Good hourly pay and travel time pay
    *Most of the people you work with are super fun and nice
    *Projects are pretty easy
    *Schedule Flexibility

    Cons

    *Really poor management
    *Inconsistent work
    *Travel gets tiring
    *No full-time or career growth opportunities

    The management is the biggest downside and makes it really hard to want to stay with the company. You learn how things are and just what you have to live with eventually but the management is just really bad, the company was recently bought and our department hasn't expanded hardly any I see it being shut down in the pretty near future and there just be a focus on the construction/logistics side of the company.

    Pros

    Lots of work. Jeeps you busy

    Cons

    They bring in help at a higher pay and they can't do work as expected

    Advice to Management

    Don't pay the help more than you pay your top people. If you have a problem with the help the answer shouldn't be " Deal with it"

    I worked at DAVACO full-time

    Pros

    I've heard that I was hired to work on the one team no one wanted to work for, so it's possible other departments are better.

    Cons

    Immediate supervisor was jealous of other female employees. My second week there I had seniority. No training to speak of and no assistance when I had questions.

    Advice to Management

    Rein in your people.

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Traveling perks. Company has a good reputation

    Cons

    Little to no communication throughout the company. Coworkers and management will cause strife if they do not like you and will conspire for you to quit or be terminated. The code of ethics hotline doesn’t work and there is nothing you can do about being mistreated and harassed. Unprofessional behavior by lead goes undisciplined

    Advice to Management

    discrimination is against the law

    I worked at DAVACO full-time

    Pros

    Good money that was it about this company and some of workers was nice

    Cons

    Out 3 to 4 months at a time maybe 4 or 5 days home then coming home on a break finding a job at home and telling them that you're not coming back and then when you decide you want to go back and they Put you on the no hire Davao is not a company people wants to work for especially if you have a family and kids

    Advice to Management

    When you have someone who would be home on break and company calls and you go out at drop of hat need to try to keep this employee
