I had worked in a few construction jobs and was lucky to find PW Trenchless in 2013. I love this company, and the crew definitely feels like a family -- I even brought my brother to come work with PW.! I also like the variety of jobs we do, and the new locations we get to work at.Gee
I had been working in the tile industry for years before a buddy who worked for PW Trenchless told me how great they were, and I should apply. PW is an awesome place to work and the short times we get to work out of town are a great way to really get to know the crew and bond…which only makes the job better. I like the freedom and support from the office and I like that I have been promoted to run my own crew.Mike
I was working as a Pipe Layer for another company and a guy I worked with left for PW Trenchless. It was not long before I joined him. I wouldn’t say I love working for PW…I love being at the beach, but working for PW and the crew is pretty good. I am not planning on going anywhere because everyone gets along so well and every day is a new challenge.Troy
Right after I was hired by PW Trenchless, I broke my leg in a non work-related mishap, and after my leg healed, I started to run a machine, since a longtime PW operator was retiring. I stayed on as an operator, and like that some of the projects are so unconventional, no other company wants to do them. The right way to handle a project is not set in stone, and the whole team looks it over, and then we pick the best way as a team....knowing that any one of the other suggestions could be used as a viable backup. I like the management style of not micro-managing the crew and I also like the generous nature of management both with their time and resources.Doug
I was a neighbour to Dave growing up and after working for a major food company in sales, I joined PW in 2009, and I like the way the crew feels more like family than co-workers. I have seen the company grow quickly, but do not feel like a number. The company's use of the “Traction” system has allowed some of my co-workers to go right to the top or to anyone with any concerns, and they always seem to be dealt with. I don’t generally have problems, but it is good for my co-workers. I really like working physically more than sales, and am glad we don’t have to work on too many really rainy days. When PW opens their Arizona division, I am the first one in line to move!Rocco

PWT is a “Traction” managed company because we take best management practices seriously.
About 8 years ago, we adopted a management philosophy by Gino Wickman, called TRACTION and never looked back . Following his principles, step by step, we implemented this game-changing program fully into the company over three years. Now it helps us to define and hold accountable all the staff, it gives the company clear goals, and it defines attainable goals for each and every employee.
In adherence to the Traction philosophy, we have structured meetings on a weekly, quarterly, and yearly basis to manage the operations of the company, and to engage in short term and long term planning.
Ultimately, this management process helps us reach our goals, through a collective vision, making PWT a great place to work!
