    I have been working at Hoar Construction full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Family-oriented, faith based, morally-grounded company that is tight knit inside the office.

    Cons

    Hard core group to penatrate. It seems to be more about who you know rather than what you bring to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more structure to the advancement procedures so that employee know exactly what to expect in the workplace. Having to wonder when you should be seeing raises or opportunities for advancement is not a good place to be in. You should know exactly what you need to do to be moved up.

    I worked at Hoar Construction full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Co-workers were easy to get along with. No shortage of company events. Many offices. Great working hours for a construction company.

    Cons

    Higher-ups are mostly from Alabama and don't care to have a conversation with you if you're from somewhere else. Slightly below average pay compare to other companies. Way too much "training." Weak estimating teams with not enough support.

    Pros

    Excellent leadership. Room for personal growth. Strong feeling of camaraderie and family atmosphere. Good feedback from superiors. Everyone holds themselves accountable. Good bi-weekly training sessions on a wide variety of topics. "Open-door policy" is unspoken and exists at all levels of the company. Company has a charitable trust and is excited to work with employees on charities they are passionate about. Excellent...

    Cons

    Construction industry careers require significant dedication of time, Hoar is part of this industry. However, Hoar offers many benefits and incentives to help maintain a work-life balance in a difficult industry. Sufficient communication between departments is occasionally an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in training on industry topics. Discussions of an in-office gym have occurred, an in-office gym would be great.

    I have been working at Hoar Construction full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Medium sized company that has all the resources of a larger company. Truly is a family first company. PMs don't travel to jobsites. Culture is excellent

    Cons

    Probably slightly higher pay at out there. Also, retail based contractor that has morphed more into multi-use, but if retail dies other segments will be tougher to get into.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify more in product type.
