    Pros

    You get to work different jobs with different people.

    Cons

    To much down time waiting for jobs. Pay isn't consistent. They will put an inexperienced person with a highly skilled carpenter and you both get paid the same.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your good and talented workers busy and weed out the unskilled employees.
