    Pros

    We have some of the best staff in the industry and take great care of our employees. We offer a great benefit package for our employees and even offer 401k and profit sharing, which sets us apart from our competitors.

    Cons

    Some of our positions are temporary (construction), but our Construction Recruiter does all that she can to keep these people working with little to no down time.

    Pros

    Focus on quality over quantity. Treated with respect. Small offices with no cubicles, all internal offices for recruiters.

    Cons

    Sometimes we are a little too small and become a little too familiar - this can be a positive and negative.

    I worked at Madden Industrial Craftsmen part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They accept anybody. Other than that I can't offer any more pros.

    Cons

    The receptionists are rude, minimum wage and they offered next to no help in finding me work.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees and your employees will care more about you.

    Pros

    This company understands the industry. their unique approach sets them above and apart from regular staffing companies. If you are looking for top dollar don't bother with this company however if you tend to operate based on integrity and craftsmanship this is the place for you. Madden understands not all jobs are for all people.............your not blacklisted if a job does not work out like other staffing companies. this company goes the extra mile to match craftsmen to the right job. the jobs provided are a fair wage and if you don't make enough money its because you didn't go to school long enough to make a good wage. this company specializes in finding jobs for licensed professionals.

    there is a reason this company has hit the top 100 companies to work for in Oregon

    Cons

    no cons other than sometimes its slow and not a lot of jobs com in

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing it works

    I worked at Madden Industrial Craftsmen as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sometimes they get ok paying jobs. A lot appear to be as said lower paying with no real
    advancement path. probably perfect for someone with just Some experience, a good faker
    or someone just starting out in a field.

    Cons

    Most of the jobs they get in industrial anyway are not ok. and they will try to steer you
    towards a job that may be far less then what you wanted. at least some of the interviewers
    seem to not have a real grasp of what may be going on in your job market, and misunderstand
    what you specify to them, then give you a Knee Jerk response to that.

    I worked at Madden Industrial Craftsmen as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck and weekends off

    Cons

    Promoted to have many industrial trade jobs, i.e. MACHINIST, MILLWRIGHTS, CNC OPERATORS, etc... The fact is they only offer low wage day labor type work with no long term stability, but while masquerading as the latter.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe reconsider their advertisment to reflect facts about the types of jobs they offer.
