    I worked at Shiel Sexton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good safety program, a lot of opportunities for overtime, a friendly work environment most of the time, good retirement plan

    Cons

    Low on the pay scale and not a lot of vacation time. They will tell you what you want to hear but won't stand behind it. Not a good work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say your going to do when you say you are going to do it. If you cany don't say it. Happy employees make even more money then you will spend to keep them happy

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Shiel Sexton full-time

    Pros

    It's a job but that's about it. If you need a job and have concrete abilities then it might do for you until you find something else.

    Cons

    Low pay in comparison to other concrete companies. Don't get paid as much as the general contracting side. Horrible communication between upper management and employees. Don't want to provide the right tools and equipment to get job done efficiently. Really no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your good workers. Man up and provide adequate company vehicles for all your fireman's and don't rely on them to tear their personal vehicles up bc you are too cheap to provide company vehicles. Better communication

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Shiel Sexton for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's a company that is known for a high turn over rate. To many different sections of the company and they have a very bad habit of no appreciation for their employees.

    Cons

    There is no cons to this company at all. They have their own pick of people who kiss their butt and that's the only ones the like and treat good.
