    I worked at Graniterock as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good benefits, health, leaves, etc. They even offer leaves to their hourly-paid interns after one month of work with them, which I have not seen anywhere else. It shows that they really care about all their employees - even interns.
    - Provide fair compensation, per the industry standards
    - Stable job
    - Good hours
    - Great people!!
    - Family owned business
    - Good location as its close to Santa Cruz
    - I would work for them again! One of the best places I have ever worked in
    - Small business, so you can do a variety of things and get to know a lot of people

    Cons

    - Does not or rarely does H1B work visas, which is a bummer.
    - Cannot live in the same city - Watsonville, have to live in nearby Santa Cruz, Aptos, Capitola, etc.
    - It was bad in 2009/2010 when Construction industry was hit by Recession and they had to regrettably let some people go. Very sad time for the company then.
    - Employee must be self-motivated to progress in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Work visa process is very easy and should be looked into, or else you are losing on talent.

    Pros

    Granite rock's ability to choose good employees makes it a great place to work. Your fellow employees are of the same mind set and are ready to help out in any way. The opportunities offered by Granite Rock are very impressive. There are schools and management training offered and you can even learning a new language. Hours are conducive to a family life.

    Cons

    The union was the only downside to my time at Granite Rock. I was not union therefore when they would strike I would have to cross that picket line and do become a scab. During my two years at Granite Rock I did not get a single raise due to the fact the union would hold out and strike and get their raises. Some would say that I should have been union. No I liked my salary job without paying dues. I know how crooked the Union reps are and chose not to deal with those guys.

    Advice to Management

    Close down each plant one at a time to force the union out. They are only a hinderance to the company and it's ability to operate in today's economy. I am not sure if companies around Granite Rock are still non-union or not but the time for a Union in this country is over.
