Always moving, always learning, very fast pace. Learn how to use all sorts of tools, such as chainfalls, comealongs, chokers, wrenches, grinders, matalvo disk. Bull rigging, learned to rig pipe. I loved every second of that job, looking for another job such as that one.
Pipefitter Helper (Former Employee) – Belle Chasse, LA – February 2, 2017
Formen are cool saftey is a pain in the behind. Overall a good place to work. I was going from installing pvc fire water pipe underground to 50ft in a rack pulling pipe. There is a fair amount of variety to work with on the job as far as projects to do.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – January 19, 2017
Top Management lacks commonsense. Site upper management lack experience, and to much ego to respect their subordinates advice and discuss situations, they just terminate. Safety is not a value, it is a job, and that is why, there has been many fatalities on CBI job sites in less than 8 months. This is not a family friendly company, in actual discussion a director stated the day after a fatality, " it is a normal day at work and we need to show that it has no affect on our operations." Ironically, that same day an executive sustained a recordable. Is that family friendly? The business ethics are the worst I have ever encountered, and the company does not trust their employees, you will struggle with benefits and allowances from day 1 past your last day of employment.
a good company to work forFocus on the company and your individual experience while employed there Provide details about why you liked or disliked working at the company Ensure any facts you include in your review are true and accurate
Construction Technician II (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – January 8, 2017
Even though it was short lived, Chicago Bridge and Iron will still be somewhat better than Fluor. Primarily for the plain and simple reason that on occasion CB&I didn't hire foolish managers; although a few slipped through the cracks.
Either way the construction world will always be a who you know instead of based on your skill set.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Hackberry, LA – December 25, 2016
CB&I may be a decent company to work for, but I did not enjoy my experience working for them on their CCJV Hackberry, La project. I spent more time working than at home, and the pay was not worth the time, especially since they don't pay laborers per diem, no matter how far youre traveling.
I loved my job with CB&I and had I not have been sequestered by Westinghouse I would most likely still be employed with them. I have to admit that I expected to be in this department at this company for a very long time.
Great work environment real family oriented company
Craftsman (Former Employee) – Threw out US – September 27, 2016
With all the years at CB&I i had a great time i enjoyed the people i worked with and the company as a whole i got to travel and see part of the country i would of never seen i hated leaving but at the time it was what i needed to do for my family
Hard work, awesome money, comradary, and a great place to learn any structural skill set. The cons about this job is that you have to be away from your family, but you are always able to provide. Not to mention that they have benefits.
Operator (Former Employee) – Hackberry, LA – July 25, 2016
Management gets their jobs because they know someone not because they are qualified because 90% of them definitely are not. They care nothing of safety. 30-40 people a day fall out from the heat and a few have died but still no cool down tents with 115 degree heat index. I've never been treated so poorly or had a company completely disregard human life the way these people do. I'll never work for them again.
Horrible management, no organization, pay check hasn't been correct in 3 months, bad people in general
