    I worked at US Water Services Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn new jobs and decent pay

    Cons

    Workload is not balanced, promotions not based on merit. If you are looking for just a job it's a great place - but if u look to move forward as they promise - don't expect it

    Advice to Management

    Stick by your own words. Hiring and keeping an employee should be based on skills and the job performance

    Company growing by leaps and bounds. Great company benefits. Caring people.

    Behind the times where technology is concerned. Managers overloaded which doesn't allow the proper time to train as well as should be.

    Advice to Management

    Be more available to employees

    I worked at US Water Services Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They provided a vehicle and did not micro manage. They have a great view of the future considering all the things ahead. I would work for them again.

    Cons

    They are really cheap and hire people straight out of prison. They take over Co. They are failing and that means they cut corners any way they can.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice. They do a pretty good job considering the task they have been given. Our country I going to have to go with zero growth but no one seems to grasp the concept. We will never have the boom we have enjoyed for 150 years.

    Good benefits. Help in the field when you need it.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs.

    Pros

    The company is very open to second chances. Occasionally third and forth chances. Motivation and hard work will be rewarded with advancement and increased irresponsibility.

    Cons

    It is very easy to be over loaded with work and responsibly. Majority of employees will never have any interaction with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Commits to excessive number of projects without proper amount of resources. This causes contempt and stress within the work force.

    Pros

    Great benefits and decent pay. If you are a route driver, it stays quiet.

    Cons

    Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Dishonest and unethical.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to the promises you make. Don't drive off clients by being unethical. Have the Indians available before you make deals. Poor morale due to poor management in Texas.

    Pros

    USWS set up shop in a new area for them, in a new field so there was zero name recognition. Some good training.

    Cons

    I moved for this job and was told there would be no sales expectations for the first year, just learn and get the name out there. Four months later they shut the facility down and let us go. Oh, and they gave me zero severance pay, despite putting in some very long days, 14+ hours. I have been in the same area with a competitor and grown my current business from $40k/mo to over $200k/mo. in two years.

    Advice to Management

    When venturing into new fields and areas patience is needed and if you do need shut it down, treat people a little better. I risked a lot taking that job.
