    I might have to get a new job haha.

    Hopefully you do well there for a while.

    Are they a "lets get it done" or "take the time to do it right" kind of philosophy?

    They are a combination of both with a more laid back attitude than other companies, like get the job done under budget and done correctly, if it can't be done under budgeted hours at least make sure its done right.

    im not to fond of davey, they are the low ballers in are area.... i have gone up and bid against them a few times, and there always the low bidder by quite a bit. And from what ive seen there work is pretty bad. Maybe its just our branch who knows.

    I'm a supervisor at Brickman. Started as a laborer and have been with them for about seven years. The whole "not paid for drive time" is when your done for the day and headed back to the shop the laborers are taken off the clock. I like Davey alot and I think they do really nice work from what I've seen. Good luck on movin up that ladder!

    O ok ya I knew it was just the laborers that happened to but that's still kind of crappy. Thanks though for the comment !

    So you work for Brickman? So many people on here hate them so much. How do you feel about what people say on this site?
