Inventory/Supply Assistant (Former Employee), French Camp, CADecember 9, 2014
Pros: great work environment.
I was always the first one on the job. My job was to open the gate first thing in the morning , before the first crews showed up.Got along well with management & co-workers. Hardest part of the job keeping all the crews supplied with the tools & equipment they needed . Some times I would have to leave the shop & take materials out to the different job sites. Getting to work around construction & constantly learning.

This company is starting to develop many problems.
Quality Control Technician (Former Employee), Indio Ca.November 19, 2014
Pros: you can learn a lot.
Cons: management has seemed to lost its way.
Granite was a great company to work for when I started out. Good people,management, benefits and room for advancement. For the last 3 years it has been very very different. Good people were replaced with corporate goons.....many did not know the job they were doing. Benefits have went down hill. There is no job security let alone advancement. Management seems to do the exact opposite of what they should do. Many jobs lose a lot of money due to lack of detail. Job culture is ok because there is still some good people there. I have hope they may change back to a good company to work for. Let just say for now there has been many good people that worked for granite.

Field Secretary & Main Office Assistant (Former Employee), Glamis, CaliforniaJune 21, 2014
Pros: drive was through the most beautiful dunes every day.
Cons: drive was 55 miles one-way every day.
Loved working at the Mesquite Regional Landfill in Glamis, CA. The daily drive through the massive sand dunes at day break was spectacular!

Field Office staff were talented, energetic and intelligent. The construction crew were top notch and professional.

Main Office was very nice and enjoyed working there after the project was completed.

Pros: company truck and lots of freedom

I was at granite for over a year and was never trained on the products that I was suppose to sell. My manager was always to busy to train me and never had any training setup. What I learned was from my co-workers.

Grade setter / Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee), Stockton, CAMay 1, 2014
Pros: good pay, good co-workers good company
Cons: not enough work, lay offs
Get to job site and set up for production, I started as a labor and ended as a grade setter / operator. The foreman was great and the work crew were fun to work with. Working in the sun was probably the hardest part. Learning something new ever day.

Network Administrator (Former Employee), Salt Lake City, UTFebruary 2, 2014
Pros: wide variety of responsibilities; not always in the office.
Cons: once i had everything up and running smoothly, it could get a little boring.
This job was the one I enjoyed the most. I made a mistake by going against my better judgment and accepting a promotion to network manager for the entire company. In the Utah branch network administrator position, I had a wide range of job responsibilities, with multiple locations to support, and I enjoyed great respect from the management.

Only a temporary position, but very insightful.
Legal Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), Tampa, FLDecember 16, 2013
Pros: felt like part of the family
Cons: having to leave so soon
I clocked in, went to my office, and got myself situated for the day. I would take worker's compensation case files, and break them down. All information had to be entered into a new data system on the computer. Once the information was entered, the files were moved back to the storage room. I learned how to break down legal files, and how nice construction companies could be. My manager was amazing. She was very considerate and always willing to answer any questions that I had. I did not have very many co-workers in the office because they all worked out on sites. The ones I did see were always very nice. The hardest part of my job was leaving, although it was only a temporary position. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people. The people were great, the atmosphere was wonderful. It was all in all a great job.
