    I worked at John Sisk & Son

    Pros

    None. Don't do it. It's a scam. Save yourself.

    Cons

    I knew it was too good to be true when they sent me a check for $4550 just to open up an office where I lived and already gave me my first weeks check when they didn't even know my age. I could have been 12! But I tried it, I tried to believe that it wasn't fake. I went to deposit the check to see if it was real, and now my bank account is being shut down! Don't trust these people.

    Recognised as Ireland’s largest and most respected contractor since 1800’s. So a sense of pride came with working for them. Some very knowledgeable staff at high positions.

    Cons

    All the managers / directors are there a very long time, so little room for progression. You will only move up so far. Very hierarchical. Despite what they may tell you about open door policy.
