Company Culture

Hostile! Outsiders are not welcomed, they are perceived as a threat. The standard procedure is to bully, insult and try to intimidate, high turn over and numerous EEO, complaints!

Support from management

There are a couple of great managers in this region, unfortunately they are not supported by the organization. Many decisions are based off of ego and spite, not whats best long term.

Teamwork

Very little team work, hourly employee's are treated poorly. Many of the individuals who have worked for the company long term, where effected by the economies decline, it is very difficult to get employees to work as a team, share information or share any knowledge for fear of replacement or reprimand!

Freedom to work independently

You are not trusted to work independently and no one will truly train you, how to properly perform your job, its a great way of keeping others at bay, due to insecurity!

Internal Communication

Communication is non existent here, prepared to be left in the dark and for crisis management.

Gender Equality

Yes

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are several individuals who stay with the company long term.

Career Development

Training is non existent, development is non existent, new opinions and ideas are not welcomed. If you are someone who will just do, what he or she is told long term, there is a chance for minimal advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

The company does provide, competitive salary and benefits! This is a great company to provide for your family, if you are a former inmate or someone with few options!

Office / Work Environment

Work environment is often, hot, dusty, dirty, loud but to be expected for this type of environment. Office is always adequate.

Environmental Friendliness

Overall the company is Eco-consciousness. Big brother EPA is always a visit away.

Work-Life Balance

6AM-6PM everyday with 15 minutes for lunch.

Company Image

Not at all!

Job Security

Long term there is job stability, as long as your willing to do anything, you are told to do and willing to except any position!

Handicapped Accessibility

Things are adequate, this is a construction industry.

Workplace Safety

The company is very safety minded and safety is in the fore front of business!

Challenging Work

Physically challenging at times yes, mentally challenging or gratifying, not at all!

Inclusive / Diverse

The company does not value diversity and diverse ideas are not supported!
