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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, a Dispatch staff that treats you with respect, and bosses that care about your sucsess.

    Cons

    Not many complaints, starting equipment is kinda old. Sometimes the hours get overwhelming but mostly it's just money in the bank.

    I worked at Geneva Rock full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You work on a small team (the survey crew) assisting on a variety of different road jobs, great pay for on-job only training, and you get plenty of hours to work in the spring and summer. PTO accrues quickly.

    Cons

    Summer weeks are always busy and long, usually you work between 50 - 60+ hours per week. In the fall and winter non essential staff get laid off, so as an hourly employee that might not be good for you.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing a good job. This is the construction world. Make sure you are ready and able to handle the heat and the time.

    Pros

    Most of the people in management are pretty decent. If you do them a good job, they'll treat you fairly. It's all about attitude, the job will be what you make it. If you want to be happy in your job, then you have to try and get along with others. They are a good employer.

    Cons

    There is anger issues and nepotism problems with the crusher supervisor. He don't understand that respect from employees has to be earned.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, this is a good company and I have enjoyed working at Geneva. I hope to be able to retire from Geneva.

    Pros

    Geneva Rock has some work in the Salt Lake valley.
    They have plants in convenient locations in Utah.
    They take care of salaried upper management.

    Cons

    There are no opportunities for advancement.
    Positions are filled by education not experience.
    Wages are also decided by education not knowledge.
    Employees are treated as peons.
    No respect is given to any one within the general working population.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as equals. Just because you are in upper management does not give you the right to treat them as if they were less human than you. You get what you give. Earn your respect don't act as if you deserve it. Every job has it's purpose and every employee has their purpose. If you want peons then post jobs in that category.

    I worked at Geneva Rock full-time

    Pros

    Union Pay (Teamsters 222) and Benefits and protection after 90 days. Pension as well. Good Overtime opportunities, paid training (approx $19.20/hr), insuring that you know your job before you're on your own completely. As long as you pay attention to safety it's a great gig. Home every night.

    Cons

    repetitive work, HOT/COLD but generally workable. Gets clicky. Union mentality/culture (Con because the company treats it's employee's well) All perks based on Seniority which throws a wrench in some peoples minds of "fairness", I didn't personally mind.

    Advice to Management

    Communication with individuals
