    Pros

    I was a PC and it was a great way to get into the HR and Recruiting world. Really glad I was able to work at Tradesmen

    Cons

    Odd Bonus methods. I worked in Sales and wasn't a big fan of the 2 week commission schedule. But then when I became a PC, I really enjoyed that.

    Pros

    Great place to start in sales. You will make a lot of contacts that can help you grow your future. Aggressive commission structure.

    Cons

    A lot of hours for the first year without much commission. Unlike selling equipment, people are unpredictable and difficult to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Up the base salary and also the field reps expense accounts.

    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time

    Pros

    Have training programs for certain positions and they send you to it for a week. They have alot of money and the office's are somewhat nice and organized

    Cons

    Pay rates are all the same and are NOT competitive. They expect way more than whats reality for a worker to do. They have taken a production/construction mentality and put in an office. They are scandalous to say the least. Lot's of politics and gossip about each other and they allow illegal things to happen.
    Your job is always on the line even if you have been there for a REALLY long time.
    They try hard and even though they try hard they shoot themselves in the foot with un-realistic expectations. It's all about sucking up and kissing the right persons butt.

    Advice to Management

    Actually monitor your offices and managers and gather feedback and if they arent cut for it let them go. Dont promote off friendships even if they are super unqualified.

    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The can find high paying work.

    Cons

    This is a very predatory company. Once signed on, you'll be continually asked to work for lower and lower wage and if you decline, they seem to have a trick to stop any unemployment payments until there's a hearing, causing some to be forced to take the undesirable and/or dangerous offer. Also they tend to call to the point of harassment asking why you wont lower your wage or take a dangerous position. At least this was my experience working out of one T.I. office. Benefits are sparse, but about standard for temp work. Sign with this company only if you're out of options.
