    I worked at K & D Services (More than a year)

    Pros

    WORKING YEAR ROUND W/LITTLE DOWN TIME.

    Cons

    Hire's some of the stupidest people who like to spread rumors and slander others. Also, stop calling the good hard workers into the office and treating them like high school trouble makers. They're bound to tell you to "Take This Job and Shove It".

    Advice to Management

    Start by firing the people who slander others.

    I have been working at K & D Services part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy work not much lifting or getting dirty.

    Cons

    Standing outside for hours and normally can't leave that spot. Long miles to job sites sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Good for older people with other checks coming in.

    I worked at K & D Services (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like hostile non-degreed management; inept supervision...than this place is for you! Do you want a non-living wage? This place is for you! They are the worst traffic control company in the entire PACIFIC NORTHWEST. Hands down; they hold that rating! Put them on a reference and never get hired by another company!

    Cons

    Any day working for them is a waste of your life, and time. Ask for a raise, and get fired; or they just won't "dispatch" you; they'll dangle you on a thread until you quit.

    Advice to Management

    Find another business to operate....your EMPLOYEE'S are your greatest asset; not your precious pick up trucks.

    Pros

    A job ,until something better comes along.

    Cons

    Low pay no benefits no gas comp.low hours

    Advice to Management

    Offer benefits , raise your pay to a liveable level. Benefits & more money will give you happy workers . Stop treating your workers like THIER really dumb & have nothing to offer & that's why they work for you.

    I worked at K & D Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of anything....AT ALL.

    Cons

    Upper and Middle management talks out of both sides of their mouths, and throws anyone they can "under the bus"...to take the blame for their own incompetence. They hire to fire. Enormous turnover of employees; no one stays much more than one month. They only will top out slightly above minimum wage, hugely inexperienced "supervisory staff"...no benefits.No guarantee of working hours, no drive or travel time paid. Other employers in this field of work compensate their employees quite well. K & D TAKES THE CAKE of negativity!

    Advice to Management

    Go to business school.

    Pros

    I worked first as a flagger and also as a supervisor. Great company to work for! Pay was good, fair, and nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the equipment was older when I first started, but over the last 2 years, I have seen a large increase in good equipment.

    I worked at K & D Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are no positive reasons to work for K & D.

    Cons

    Outrageously poor management of employees; They have abusive clientele; they promote the least able to perform well into "supervisory" status and title. The pay is below poverty level and without benefits. Run...don't walk away; run away. If you are a Flagger looking for employment; look everywhere and anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your greatest assets. Treat them poorly; and you have what you currently have and deserve to have it.
