    Pros

    Flexible, keep you working, pay better than any other job if you aren't a craftsman, diversity

    Cons

    lack of communication with employess in the office and those in the field. (feels like you're working for the man"

    Advice to Management

    Explain to field employees more regularly why Tradesman is NOT a staffing service and it has immense benefits. i.e being able to work at other job sites if you get canned, why field employees don't get ludacrisly high wages (which seem to be expected for some reason), and why the service of providing consistent employment is the greatest benefit of the job.

    Pros

    The management have all been great to work with. Each staff member seem to care about both you and the Company.

    Sometimes there can be gaps of off time between assignments, but their projects can be lengthy.

    Advice to Management

    The safety focus is very good and more on line training should be made available even if we have to chip in some of the cost.

    Great Team environment, great benefits and when you put the time in great money. I worked my tail off my first year and did pretty darn well. Second year I made 100k. If you're a hard worker this company will definitely take care of you.

    Sometimes long hours but what job doesn't have a con?

    I have been working at Tradesmen International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity exists to set your own pay rate. The chance to meet new contractors and GC's on a daily basis and work on their high profile construction projects. You also get to attend networking events with trade associations to form new contacts. One of the best pro's is that results are rewarded.

    Cons

    This job requires long hours in the beginning because you are either replacing a bad field rep or you are opening a new territory. There is to much micromanagement from senior management. I believe that issue is being addressed with some recent changes.

    Advice to Management

    Rely more on your top producers and managers for feedback. Rely less on outsiders making unsubstantiated claims that can't be proven. Go back to your roots as a sales company first and a company that produces reports second. Empower your managers to act more independently.
