Commissioning Lead (Current Employee) –  EverywhereSeptember 2, 2016
I have worked for Granite for over 8 yrs, holding several positions. Compensation and benefits are top notch, however, my positions all required 100% travel. As to be expected, when the workload exists they keep you gone as much as possible.

Nuclear Technician (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, NCJune 30, 2016
Working as a Nuclear Technician is an amazing experience. The amount of knowledge and training you receive is second to non. The management is amazing and is willing to work with you. Hardest part about this jobs is the travel. The most enjoyable part of this job is work its self (not many people can say they have been inside a nuclear reactor)!

Counter sales and warehouse (Former Employee) –  Hooksett, NHJanuary 16, 2016
Started work at 7am worked till 4:30 pm put stock away from the distribution center. pulled order for either delivery or pickup. Also helped with Transfers to other branches and helped at the counter performing sales and pulling order to be picked up by the customer.

There were a lot of great people that worked there and were very helpful. I really didn't find anything to hard about the job just like the challenge of getting the orders done in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of the job was the customers always had a good time with them laughing and joking around.
Pros
The benefits and discounts were great
Cons
Lack of training

Not the best
Office Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 12, 2015
Quincy is a good place to work if you are straight out of college and/or need experience. Other than that, run. I'm not joking. I'm not that bitter. It's just a waste of time. The hours are stupidly strict. You're treated like a child and you will never be able to beat the game. The game always wins.

Review of Company
Global Credit Card Program Administrator (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLMarch 3, 2015
The company is good, love my current job and Manager, however have not been able to work to my potential. Integrity and honesty is not valued as it is said to be, employees are expected to work 50-60 hours a week, not take vacations, etc. Company lacks communication and has a reactive instead of proactive approach.
Pros
Good Pay, Great Benefits
Cons
Integrity, lack of ability to take vacation, expectation of overtime

Good job but hours are disheartening
Wind Service Technician I (Current Employee) –  Schenectady, NYAugust 11, 2014
A typical day at work starts at noon Sunday afternoons,
my drive in an hour to work every day,
I come in to relieve the night shift.

My day can either be slow or fast depending on how the weather is overall in the country and south america. If the weather is bad then I spend a lot of time communicating lighting warnings to sites. If winds are high, too high, in fact, then i spent a lot of time dealing with pitch system problems and rotor and generator overspeed issues at towers.

When winds are low, towers typically don't move, so my job doesn't get too exciting.

But being here 12 hours a day until midnight can really feel long,
My co-workers and management are the best, thus, make the time as enjoyable as possible.
Pros
Only work 3 and a half days a week
Cons
Long hours and no social life during time frame

Not what you can expect
Premier Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Quincy, MAJune 7, 2014
Apart from the company having a gym, the work that is expected and compensation in return does not equal to what employees should be gettting paid. Unless you are part of the sales force dont expect to last much.
Pros
Gym and classes
Cons
Did not have benefits in place, no growth opportunity, horrible compensation, no processes or training on how to work systems

Worked under a yearly contract
Performance & Reliability Engineer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 16, 2014
As a contractor for General Electric Energy Division, I would assist other contractors in the Monitoring & Diagnostic duties for up to 180 Gas & Steam Turbine Engines. Duties include looking for anomaly’s, which would include Combustion Shifts, Vibration changes, Failed Sensors, etc. that violate GE’s Process Map criteria and could possibly lead to a costlier shutdown of the turbine if left undetected. If anomaly is found, we would call the site and speak to the Control Room Operator and if possible the CPM-Contract Performance Manager if the site is under warranty from GE. If the issue requires immediate action, a case is created noting time of the event and the overall characteristics of the turbine and what action needs to be taken to correct the problem. Once resolution is issued and corrected, the case is then closed and turbine then can be brought back online. Other duties included performing GE associate duties as Alert Watch and Dynamics Monitoring if needed. Also, trained new contractors and handled shift-lead duties, such as gathering contractors working hours and off-days for all 3 shifts, to insure the Monitoring & Diagnostic had proper coverage over the holidays. Computer software used – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, etc.
Pros
Set own schedule, worked with nice people
Cons
Average healthcare, only 5 days off a year, includes vacation
