    I have been working at Staker & Parson Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, understanding and very supportive of family obligations, a very supportive group of people to work with, great benefits and other perks, it really is just a great company to work for!

    Cons

    Many of the positions are temp to hire, so benefits and full income are often placed on hold until the full time company position is made available.

    Advice to Management

    Many employees remain faithful for far too long in a temporary position, while the company and those with the authority to promote the position to non-temp status take their sweet time fulfilling what was promised.

    I worked at Staker & Parson Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Forward thinking company that cares about safety. Good employee benefit programs that may take awhile to obtain as a new employee. If you are willing to work the overtime then there is usually enough work to make a fair amount of money. Leadership is usually fair and professional.

    Cons

    The bro network is alive and well. Seems like most people that work here are a friend or relative of one boss or another. They sell their products at a premium whether they should or shouldn't.

    Pros

    This company is like family. Everyone takes really great care of each other. Not only do they take care of their employees, they are fantastic with their customers.

    Cons

    I don't see any cons at this point. This company is simply amazing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Employees appreciate your hard work and dedication. Communication is key.

    I worked at Staker & Parson Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company with a focus on rewarding those who preform well.
    Quarterly safety incentives, annual bonuses, typically annual raises.

    Cons

    Seasonal unemployment affects many employees, but that's to be expected in the industry.

    Pros

    None to speak of worst job ever in 20 + years in the business

    No team players, horrible management, low wages and even lower annual raises if any at all.

    Advice to Management

    Realize when you have good employees, let them do what your paying them to do. They will take care of you.

    Pros

    Large company with good benefits and pay. Drivers had their own union ( in company) and we had some input there even as a new guy. Very independent job.

    Cons

    When it came down to it union had no real power. Company is owned by Oldcastle, one of the largest construction co. in the world, sometimes it had that corporate feel.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the drivers, they're the ones interacting with the clients everyday. Management needs to word all the way down the ladder more effectively.
