Paving Superintendent (Former Employee) says"The hourly personnel where great. The management had NO clue of what we were doing on a DOT job, as I don't believe they had ever done one before. They subbed out a mill and repave on 6 lanes of hwy for 3 miles, and never checked it for cross slope or straight edge. All had to be redone. And the super was cutting corners left and right. Doing very bad practices for DOT paving. I have been a supervisor for the last 20 years and never have seen anyone do the things I saw. When I brought it to the attention of the owners, they told me not to worry about it, and let the Superintendent in charge do as he wanted. Unbelievable... Cons: Poor upper management, not concerned with placing a quality product."
