Doing all office duties for this company as we expanded the Frye Regional Hospital. I learned how to operate many things in construction. I also was responsible for payroll and new clients and subcontractors. I had a great manager that taught me everything I needed to know. The hardest part of the job was when it ended I had to relocate out of state or have no job.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Getnry, AR – September 27, 2016
40-50 hours a week 7AM to 3:30 or 4:30PM. Inventory, shipping/receiving, forklift, and organization. Management was really good, had no problems. People I worked with was great and everyone realized it was all about teamwork and safety. Heat Stress and weather makes it tough. Laid back and wasn't worried about bosses pushing you around.
Excellent employees throughout the organization that are eager to be successful and enjoy building. I have gained much knowledge in all fields, and particularly public speaking, leading meetings, scheduling, budgets, risk management, claims management.
Truck Driver/T&M Crew (Former Employee) – Gentry, AR – April 5, 2016
I have made very good friends with each and every Company I worked for. I have no complaints with any of them. I would work for them again if given the opportunity, they were all great learning experiences.

Every day we vacuum,sweep and mop the floor.My co-workers were pretty good.The hardest part of the job was working at high altitude.The most enjoyable part of the job was having weekends off to be able to go to church.
We had free cold water, gloves, masks.
There was no sick leave, paid holidays nor vacations.
Very challenging in my role as Job Cost Specialist
Job Cost Specialist (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 27, 2015
It is a fun environment most of the time, but requires lots of focus to get all tasks done. It has a variety of tasks which keeps me busy. It requires a detail oriented person who can manage their time wisely.
General Labor / Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 5, 2015
Started to work at 7am-3pm Monday-Friday and Saturdays were optional and paid as overtime. Most of my co-workers were great team players. The hardest part of the job was when transfer from one job site to another without enough time or heads-up. The most I enjoyed was that with in the company you was able to grow.
Construction Project Accountant (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – October 7, 2014
Brasfied & Gorrie is a wonderful place to work. I loved my job and all of my co workers / Team Mates. The company has been in business for over 50 years and are based out of Alabama with satellite offices I worked out of the Lake Mary office.
The Family oriented atmosphere. The benefits package. The nice bonuses.
Site Assistant (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – March 13, 2014
I loved the job, unfortunately my position was only available if the Superintendent had a job site. Most enjoyable part was earning the nicknames on the job site from the subs for making sure they keep their paper work up to date. The coworkers are what made my job meaningful when I could help them solve a problem.
Rodman (Former Employee) – Auburn, AL – February 19, 2014
The hardest part of the job would be working in all of the elements. The most enjoyable part of the job was the experince and knowledge gained from the individuals that I not only worked with but was introduced to.
Long hours, good pay, learning and understanding what engineers and carpenters do.
I worked at Brasfield & Gorrie full-time for about 6 months.(Really cant say much about the company because i had to go back to school).Honest people, leadership and ethics start from the top. I enjoyed my tenure here. The great reputation of this company held by clients and employees is much deserved. I was very happy at B&G and highly recommend it to anyone seeking employment
All hands meeting to go over safety and the day's job site changes. Get with crew for a brief overview of my crew task for the day. Fuse and lay hdp pipe 40ft at a time using a fuse machine with facer and heating iron. Forman oversees progress throughout the day. i learned how to put in many different types of pipe, how to run different pieces of equipment. My co-workers were for the most part helpful and easy to work with.The hardest part of my job is grading the ditches that the pipe is going to be laid into. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to work outside and learn so many new things.
Keeping me phisically fit.
Unhappy with wages and the inability for manegment to decide on changes
Much different that a creative architectural office.
Document Control Coordinator (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – August 13, 2013
I log in submittals, RFIs (request for information), ASIs (architect's supplimental information), CCDs (construction change directive), DBEs (diversity business enterprise - minority and women owned businesses as well as small business licenses) and field reports. I also took part in creating and assembled Monthly Reports for the client as well as the company. I am responsible for updating 7 volumes of drawings for 20 different people ranging from the Lead Superintendent, Field Superintendents, Field Engineers, Project Managers and general plan room. I also distributed electronically and by hard copy all RFIs, ASIs, CCDs and field reports to all prime sub-contractors. This all involved a lot of multitasking and self-starting. I liked being busy all the time. I had a few breaks inbetween updates which were enough of a rest before starting all over again.
The job was totally mine, no one else in the office did what I did, I set my own priorities and got the work done, my supervisors are very satisfied with my work.
Atmosphere set by company and certain individuals was not pleasant many times.
