AutoCAD Rebar Detailer (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – September 6, 2017
Detailer - it is very interesting job position as a drafter. You will be visiting actual projects and meet people "behind the scenes". The company, in general, takes good care of employees. Safety is number one there. They make sure every employee is satisfied and happy with their position. Now, if we speak about Tacoma office itself, the team is great. The office has monthly activities that provide free lunch and team building activities. Twice a day everyone goes outside to stretch (to keep everyone healthy). Salary is enough and increases depending on your experience and productivity (although some of my ex-coworkers were unhappy with large work load and small salary). The position itself is very stressful. There is a continues pressure of due dates and error free great quality work. Management sometimes tends to micromanage your work and how you work. There will be moments when you will have to revise your work in a hurry, get yelled at (for errors) and will have to listen to humiliation in your address about your work. And on top of all that produce great quality drawings, on time and error free. Plus do a paperwork such as Timesheets, Change Orders, Schedules, and etc. This is definitely not a place for soft character people. You will rarely hear "good job" (which happens at other positions as well, but hey it doesn't hurt to say those two words more often to people). So, as I said NOT a place for soft people. To summarize, Company, in general, is fantastic (they take care about their employees). Although, that specific location need to work on communication and bettermore... management (communication and production strategies). Position is very stressful but fun.less

Fast paced very hard work. Job security, provide employees with a lot of OT, however worklife balance can become a concern. Managers will say what is necessary to get employees to accommodate their needs. Promised certain pay and not received
Rebar Fabricator (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA 91766 – June 17, 2017
Ok place to work as a temporary job, not long term. Room for advancement depends on how much your manager or lead man like you. Favoritism plays a big role in how you get to advance, not how well you work or know how to do the job your being paid to do.
Internship (Former Employee) – Princeton, Illinois – February 28, 2017
My time at Harris Rebar was short due to a family emergency and I had to quit my internship which only lasted about 3 weeks. I enjoyed everything about it, great co-workers, It was the first time I ever operated Rebar Cad so I learned a different software to a certain extent but overall I enjoyed my time there.
Longer breaks to allow Cad designers to maybe stretch.

Warehouse worker (Former Employee) – Salisbury, PA – December 19, 2016
With the bay doors open this warehouse environment feels like working outdoors. This relaxed, work at your own pace, and most importantly, be careful with your surroundings. We are working with machines that bend rebar at odd angles and with incredible pressure that can break bones. Seen it done with some of our own workers.
