    Pros

    I cant think of any!!

    Cons

    Company does not do what they say they will do!! I hired on with them for a month long job. I drove 500 miles, arrived on May 29, 2017 and rented motel. I get to jobsite, only to find out the job is for 2 days. Today is June 14, 2017 and IM STILL WAITING ON THAT OVERNIGHT CHECK THAT WAS PROMISED ON JUNE 10, 2017!!!
    So my advise is, work for them at your own risk!!

    Advice to Management

    Lack of communication is running rampit thru your company!!

    Pros

    Decent company work culture if you like drinking.

    Cons

    Long hours. Pay as a recruiter tops out quickly with little opportunity to advance unless you relocate. Upper management is always pressing for more and never acknowledging success. You're selling applicants on jobs you don't actually have most of the time forcing you into awkward situations.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your recruiting team more.

    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The customers. If you get in a northern markets that already established you can do ok salary wise. Some employees are cool in the field. Others are a pain for little money.

    Cons

    No loyalty and no training. Your on your own. Managers that come from already established markets up north think they know it all and can do it everywhere. So they treat you like crap.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pick this company to be a manager. If you don't meet budget no matter the area your in, they will fire you. There is no loyalty. They will take you out, ask about your family, and then fire you with a smile for no reason.

  8. "Good pay"

    Pros

    Great staff, awesome benefits. Pay is decent at best. Fun corporate parties. Wish there were more pros that I could mention.

    Cons

    PTO/ Sick day policy is a joke. Very cut throat, never know who is going to go next. Unprofessional atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look and see who is really making the decisions at your company. When working there, I would advise everyone to be on their toes, who knows if you are on "the list". Weed out the psychotic snake you have in your front office.

    Pros

    Helping people secure work daily.

    Cons

    The end products doesn't reflect the value that I sell

    Advice to Management

    Have your reps just sell. Not collect money if the customers do not pay. This company is too big to have sales reps waste their time with that task. Also not paying the rep because the customers doesn't pay is ludicrous.
