When it comes to company ratings, we could not find any reviews on the website glassdoor.com. This might be due to the size of the company, but we’ll share what we do know about them.
However, we know the company works hard to keep their workers happy. In fact, a few years ago, the company was ordered to pay $556 thousand in back wages to employees who were misclassified as contractors by the staffing company PJD used. PJD remedied the situation in a great way.
Not only did they pay those wages, they also reclassified over 1,000 workers and planned to hire many more.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
Remember that burning question: Does Paul Johnson Drywall hire felons? We know the answer to that now, but are there any convictions that may have a hard time gaining employment?
We didn’t get any information directly from PJD regarding this question, but we know that most employers will look at each person’s individual criminal history when making decisions to assess the risk. They’ll look at how long ago the conviction was, how many charges you had and what the charges were.
You need to be aware of your individual charges when applying. If you have multiple theft charges, construction companies may be wary of hiring you due to the expensive equipment you’ll be using. It’s up to you to convince them that you are ready for a second chance.
If you have a sex crime conviction, be aware of any additional restrictions you may have concerning where you can work and what areas may be off limits for you.
Does Paul Johnson Drywall drug test?
We didn’t find any specific information about whether PJD does drug tests, but be aware that you may be required to take one if you get injured. Most workers’ compensation insurance companies will not pay out a claim if the injured person was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of their injury.
We bring this up because injuries are more common in construction jobs.
