    Pros

    Tradesmen International, the nation’s leading total construction support group, has been instrumental with increasing production for its clients on thousands of jobsites throughout the nation and has been the chosen home to thousands of skilled craftsmen.
    Our skilled employees choose to work for Tradesmen because we offer an exceptional option over the fluctuations and reliability of steady work due to the normal rise and fall of productive construction on projects or with a single contractor.
    The Tradesmen International alternative offers steady work due to our partnerships with thousands of contractors throughout the nation. This put us on many high profile projects and an exciting career for our employees. Simply put, Tradesmen International craftsmen can work on their current assignment with the confidence that they will have another assignment as their project comes to a close. It is Tradesmen’s goal to provide reliable work with fair compensation, benefits, and opportunity to further the employee’s skills and career growth.
    In addition to steady work, top pay and benefits (health, dental, vision, life and short term disability insurances, 401K and paid vacations), Tradesmen International offers its employees with opportunity. With over 130 offices nationally and our growing traveling division TI craftsmen have the freedom to relocate almost anywhere in the country without losing their status with the company.
    In conclusion, working for tradesmen international is not just a job. If the craftsman has a good work ethic, strong personal values, exceptional abilities and skills along with a strong desire to be the best, then he may be strong candidate to join our team across the country and advance in his/her career along with providing a better life for their families.

    I have been working at Tradesmen International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you're looking for a great company with an exciting, fast paced, challenging environment with unlimited earning potential, Tradesmen should be on the forefront of your job search. I have been with the company for 8 years and have been fortunate enough to see Tradesmen International evolve into the premier construction labor support company in the country. There is consistent growth year after year locally and across the nation. It's an exciting time to be part of the team here.

    Cons

    Not as many people coming out of school these days are going into the construction trades like they used to so it has made our job a bit more challenging in finding qualified candidates during the busy season. However, this has made Tradesmen that much more valuable to our client base. Tradesmen allows them to focus on their field of expertise while we do what we are best at which is searching, recruiting, screening, hiring etc. for them.
