Workplace Safety

Inclusive / Diverse

somewhat diverse

Suggestions for improvement

  • i would try to make the installation team more intact with the main office

What I like about the company

one positive personal experience about the company is they will always reimburse you for money that was spent out of your pocket. For example, buying tools and materials needed for the job the company would pay all the fees and supply you with the best equipment to achieve the job.They also paid for parking meters. paying the meter could be hectic with the amount of cars that are in the city of manhattan.

What I dislike about the company

i disapprove of the amount of pto you get.for example they don't give you to many vacation days for the amount of work you put in throughout the year. 10 hour days extend to 12 -13 hour days because of the amount of work
