    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.

    Pros

    Family environment. Putting men to work, very rewarding. It's a white collar job with a blue collar work ethic. An honest company with good intentions.

    Cons

    Base pay is so so but commission potential is unlimited. Entry level training could use some tweaking. Although not really an entry level position. Take that for what it is.

    Advice to Management

    Better entry level training for Project Coordinators. Other then that. Keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time

    Pros

    The administrative females who answer the phones and do the clerical work deserve better.

    Cons

    If you like drinking beer during working hours then this is the office for you. I have never worked anywhere that allowed it's employees to drink during normal business hours but it is allowed here. If your older, Are experiencing any health or personal issues at home then stay away from this location as I was given all of 11 days before being let go. I wasn't very impressed as far as the orders because it seemed that they could never actually fill an order which meant that as a sales associate your the one who has to deal with the fall out of never having the proper number of workers show up for the job.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't want to hire older individuals who are honest in the interview process then here is some advice, Just don't hire them after the initial in office interview. That way you don't have to waste their time. And also if you put someone in charge of Sales as a manager then maybe you can make certain that they don't speak poorly of America as a racist country, Especially when they are only recently in the United States.

    Pros

    from corporate-down, the company is all about doing things differently; i.e. the right way, however

    Cons

    however, this is by far the worst industry I've ever worked in; with ZERO accountability from our local recruiter. this means if they actually show up (not a guarantee), it's likely they're still completely unqualified/borderline worthless. all this after you've spent every hour of your workday promising potential customers what a great product you can offer....

    Advice to Management

    your company has grown exponentially; along with this market, and at the local offices, away from corporate your new lack of attention leads to piss-poor recruitment; which eventually equals lost business.
