Working from home is about the only pro to this job, but even then, if you’re not a team with a good team lead you are strictly monitored throughout the day to ensure you definitely working a day with a full hour long lunch break even though we are salaried employees.
So many to list. First, horrible benefits including PTO. Significantly less is offered than any other place of employment I have been in. They recently made a rule that no PTO can be rolled over into the next year without offering any additional days off, so good luck going on an extended trip. 10 days for the entire year is not enough in my opinion. Only 4 sick days are offered, so one bout of the flu and you have depleted that. The structure of management is not great, team leads are assigned 8-10 people to oversee. While there may be some good team leads, if you get a poor one, you will know it and suffer because of it. Poor leadership at the team lead level reflects in no morale, team camaraderie or enjoyment of work, many useless meetings and lame attempts at team building. The KPIs established for staff are not adjusted based on the business of your offices, so almost impossible to reach all KPIs. There is no incentive established if you do reach KPIs for certain roles, while other positions are able to earn bonuses and trips that are flaunted to other staff members faces even though they have no chance of receiving them by the rankings towards the trips being sent to the entire staff, not just the people eligible.

They will hire you, get hurt on the job they fire you and fight you tooth and nail over workers compensation!
I am a licensed electrician who previously worked at Tradesmen International. During my employment, I endured harsh weather conditions while digging in a 5-foot trench for a pay rate of $42.60 per hour from 01/28 until 03/04/2021. Unfortunately, I suffered a rotator injury on March 4, 2021, and I suspect that Tradesmen International employed a roofer to complete the task. Despite the ongoing challenges, it is now 09/04/2023; I have successfully prevailed in all of my Workers' Compensation hearings, Although the Ohio Industrial Commission has treated me fairly and compassionately, I continue to persevere in my battle, even after being diagnosed with moderate to severe anxiety and depression. Although I hold a license in HVAC, I am no longer able to pursue work in that field as well. On a positive note, I have invested significant effort into setting up my music studio. I am currently preparing to release my third CD, and my fourth CD will feature a song that specifically focuses on my experiences with Tradesmen International. This song has already been registered and cleared by BMI. Don't expect any compassion or human decency from this company.
