Pros

If you really need a job and they make you an offer. There is a fair degree of autonomy, which is nice.

Cons

When business is slow they have no ideas to help. They just pound you to do more of the things that aren't working. Management consists of people who were successful in the business when orders were falling off of trees and don't know the first thing about selling in a resistant environment.

Advice to Management

If you receive a buyout offer, jump on it. Let someone who understands how to run a business buy it instead of using it for their personal ATM.

    Pros

    Paid vacation time, you can literally work and receive in the next year up to 6 weeks paid vacation. Usually you are working year round when most construction workers are laid off. The vacation package and benefit package are very good. Tool purchase program is good.

    Cons

    They lie a lot about pay raises, and if you get on their bad side, or if the feel you have slighted them you will go to the bottom of the list to be sent to a job. Some of the people who have been promoted from a field job let there heads swell with power.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest. Schedule pay raises every 6 months. Pay raises at a minimun are cost of living increases.


  2. "High turnover"
