I talked to the people at the tradesmen international office around here today and it seems interesting, good money. Just never met anyone that worked with them.

I signed up with them and they told me to go work at this one site. they told me it was eighty feet off the ground and lasted 3 weeks. then as soon as that was done they were going to send me to kentucky? I told them I only wanted texas louisiana and not very much on heights. it ends up being a deal where they want you to work a million hours and they give you bennies and vacations. anyhew I went to the site and it was 240 feet up. 125 feet of scaffolding and then step ladders hanging from peices of angle welded to the wall. I guess if I had a little more gusto then it wouldnt have been all bad. just my 2 cents.

I have been signed up with them for weeks now, they have offered me a couple jobs for crappy pay. I found a great shop to work at soon after signing up with them though.

I do not personally work for tradesman but my company employs an asston of guys from them and the pay isnt bad (including the per diem and ot) and also if my company lets you go for whatever reason you can be at work the next day at another company in the cities, we got guys coming out of IL and WI even as far as GA.

I know I wouldn't work for them. They are sending SCABS into the shop that we are striking at. I sure don't know how they could do that to people who have family's. I guess that the SCABS don't have much to live for other than quick cash. When this ones settled there off to another one. Tradesman should be real proud of what they are doing. Maybe if I worked for them I wouldn't want to tell anyone either.

I happen to know the owner of tradesmen . I knew him since back when he started one office- in Cleveland. He's is the man that I owe sooo much to. Got me motivated to start my own business . which is a weld/ fab shop. Before hand I worked for a union company for 17 years. 3 years after I left that company they filed chapter 11 . They were still trying to hang on when the union decided to strike them because of a 15% pay cut and the company had to shut down and close. The union screwed those workers. They are all out of a good paying job now. I'm not sure how it is for ironworkers but I know the union protected the crap workers . Thats why I left the company in the first place. The company didn't appreciate what they had and the union wouldnt let the slackers get fired.I ended up doing all the work. I felt like I was getting it from both ends. Anyway, Joe Wesley ,Ceo of Tradesmen, is a brilliant man. Taught me that the only person who protects your job and future is yourself. So you cant blame the scabs.

About being Scabs . I have never been ask to cross a picket line , The people that crossed you line are more than likely not from your town so it aint their fight , Its your fight .
Sign Up . see what they got for you

My buddy works for them. Has been on the same jobsite a few months now, building a new Walmart. At first, he was doing concrete walls. When that work was done, he called the office, and went back to the site the next day to run heavy equipment. No complaints from him.
