    Start promoting within! And not just people's family members or friends. Don't just discuss the employees who sweat for you - help move them up the latter before they leave.

    Pros

    Pay was always on time.

    management insists on using completely inexperienced individuals in supervision. As soon as you get your license, you are a foreman.......mind boggling.

    Put competent individuals in supervision roles. Respect older tradesmen, they actually know stuff.
