INDUSTRAIL IRON WORKER (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – November 14, 2017
there was a big change when CB&I was bought out at the VC Summer plant.Our management changed a lot a that time.I was looking to be at that job site for a loge time ,but we all see what happen.A company can in and everything got on fast tract and went out the roof.No one had a idea that something like this would happen. Seen a lot of stuff happen in construction but nothing like that.
Safety Specialist III (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – November 13, 2017
My safety manager was very unqualified to do the job she had and constantly created anger among employees by belittling them. Made it very hard for me to build a positive safety culture. I was required to often give up weekends and was a salary employee.
employees were very nice and hard working
Safety Manager was incompetent yet never held accountable.
Tool Room Attendant (Former Employee) – Clearfield, UT – November 10, 2017
It never seems like you are good enough for higher management. Especially if you are a woman or in a relationship with another worker - even though most of them are related to some or most there. I did learn a lot of useful tools and programs while working there but it felt like the expectations they had weren't very realistic with the time and tools they allowed me to use. I didn't intend to leave but, after being laid off, I have already had more time with my family and less stress in the last month, than I have had in the last 2 years so perhaps it's the best thing.
Good pay, it was a job I could count on for a while, Met some amazing people, from all walks of life. It probably progressed me patience, a lot.
Being set up to fail, insurance isn't great for what we pay, no PTO, and being "volun-told" for over time with no appreciation is tough.
Machine operator (Former Employee) – SLC, UT – November 10, 2017
A good union shop.A typical day involved operating an angle shear.I learned how to operate several machines.Management was fair.Workplace culture was professional.Hardest part dealing with the union.Most enjoyable part was many benefits.
CB&I is a great place to work. I've been fortunately to have encountered some great managers and leads, folks that support knowledge growth and experience. Right now, there is simply no work on the books and CB&I is forced to layoff many workers and this makes for a stressful environment right now. Once work flow improves, I'm sure CB&I will, once again, be one of the top contenders in the industry.
I would work there again if I was offered another position with the company
Administrator (Former Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – November 8, 2017
This was great place to work, the only problems there was no job security!! You didn't know if you were going to have a job one day to the next!! This is a construction company everything is fast paced and you have to move quickly and everything has to be accurate and in point so nothing messes up!! Other than that the pay is fair.. per diem helps a lot.. and no paid vacation time
High turn over in upper management, did not seem prepared for the project

Director (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – November 5, 2017
CB&I nuclear division acquired by Westinghouse, who formed subsidiary WECTEC. CB&I and Westinghouse consortium partnership was a failure. When I arrived Westinghouse was already in process of acquiring CB&I
Senior Trainer and Commissioning Specialist (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – November 2, 2017
I would work for CBI again as a company. However there are certain managers I would not work for again. Benefits were better than average in my opinion. It was ashame that the project was managed so poorly that thousands had to be laid off.
My middle manager unqualified to hold his position
Timekeeper (Current Employee) – Hackberry, LA 70645 – November 1, 2017
I love when you take that customer who has just had it and are at the point of giving up and you turn then around to a happy customer that is ready to give you another chance.
As a CSR I love helping people. I enjoy the feeling of turning someone’s frustration of complications into a sigh of relief. To let them know, ” Hey, I got you :)”
I love it when a connection is made with a happy satisfied customer.
I love the opportunity to make a connection with people. How awesome is it when in the end there’s a good connection made regardless of whether the issue was solved or not. There have been times where the issue was a little more challenging than expected but through troubleshooting and what not, there was great rapport established between both parties.
I love being able to assist a customer and satisfy their needs.
