Receptionist (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – July 26, 2013
The day begins with you, or office manager. This is a position that requires more then office work. A Construction site is a home for men for months. Mondays can be gloomy, because the long drive back to site after weekend at home. Fridays can be FAST and fantastic because they are going home for the weekend. You are so many departments, alone. H.R., Purchasing, Accounting, Biologist, Coordinator/ Public Relations/ Janitor! I learned quickly men (construction) aren't interested in conversation until after the 3rd cup of coffee which was prepared by you before he arrives. NEVER get involved when 2 men disagree, they speak to each other harsh and its o.k. NEVER forget to order/deliver a message/ or anything regarding "MUD". "Mud" is cement, and its a very big deal, so always notify the supervisor asap about MUD! Most supers are great, they don't ask you anything unless they need know. If a guy from outside slides in office to often, supervisor address it before you notice. The hardest part was not talking. The most enjoyable part was learning how many small jobs and BIG parts of a project.
Guys dont really bother you about stuff, so its quiet
A typical work day at Hubbard Construction is simply going to the designated job site and laying asphalt. It is very important to properly transfer and lay asphalt, because of the safety concerns. The management and culture workplace was definitely balanced. The hardest part of the job was enduring the heat. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I had benefits.
Although it is tough, I feel it's safe to say that Hubbard Construction may have been one of the best jobs I had in my job history. Although you start work before the sun comes up it's very benefiting. You have: crew members who help you grow individually, good management, and always an assignment to keep yourself preoccupied. This is a job I would advise many interested in survey or any facets of construction to seriously consider.

Hubbard is a great company to work for. There is a lack of security in the longevity of jobs due to contracts ending. Commute locations are unpredictable, travel time and distance to work are uncertain.
Assistant Superintendent (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – January 26, 2016
I liked working for them however, the security of your job with this company was hit or miss.The benefits were okay it was hard to get a raise but I liked the long hours with overtime and seeing new things.

Leader (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – August 30, 2015
I learned basically how to remodel/renovate a house. My manager was the owner and only about 5 to 7 workers. We all got along. Cold in the winter and very hot in the summer. It was enjoyable building and constructing many different types of housing projects.
office (Former Employee) – jacksonville – April 16, 2015
Started out strong. Was a great company but due to bad field managment and slacker interoffice management the company has gone down fast. Layoffs. They let people go that are good and keep slackers because theyre friends. They only hire friends 75% of the time.No company picnics, no family atmosphere. Work hard get nothing. If youre not one of the good ole boys or the office click you arent treated fairly. Dont go on leave, or maternity leave, management "reorganizes" you put of a position. Once the Eurovia managment stopped being involved the integrity disappeared from how the employees were treated.
