    Pros

    They pay well. They are large and very structured so I you learn the policies and procedures and follow them it helps you perform your job.

    Cons

    If they don't have a project for you to go to, or if you are on one and a more experienced supervisor or one that has been with the company longer than you, they don't hesitate to lay you off.

    Advice to Management

    Need to give a supervisor that has experience in one segment of commercial work (say structural) an opportunity to learn the work of other aspects (say tenant improvement).

    Pros

    Good communication, supportive environment. Lots of training. Nice people to work with. Thoroughly enjoyed working for this company and would recommend working for them.

    I worked at Hoar Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very resourceful company. Spared no expense to ensure myself and colleagues had all the tools needed to run a large scale commercial job site. This company sets the industry standard in many areas of construction.

    Cons

    Over staffed the jobs to ensure quality assurance. This works fine until the whole team isn't on same page or subs play team members against one another. Few less superintendents on site would have solved a lot of problems.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with Employees
