Treasury Analyst (Current Employee), Houston, TX – July 1, 2014
Pros: 9/80s, diverse company
Cons: no work and life balance
KBR technology and resources are not up to date. The productivity of work is harder to manage if you do not have updated resources to assist you with balancing your day to day work. Diverse backgrounds, all cultures.
Never have I seen such unskilled people in my 30 years
Journeyman Pipefitter / Combo pipe welder (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FL – June 29, 2014
Pros: met one older man pipe fitter that knows his craft
Cons: good ole boy system in place of real supervision
Same old thing that gets KBR run off all their job sites----The buddy system in management. Pushing for footage and not quality. Safety is thrown right out the door as long as the pipe is lashed and they get their footage. No one has had any kind of formal pipe welding school or pipefitter apprenticeship training. Ignorance is bliss in West Palm Beach. – more... The most dangerous ones to work with have been doing their trade wrong for 15 plus years and don't have a clue From GF to Worker totally uneducated and inexperience. – less
START UP Mechanic (Current Employee), Ghent, KY – June 25, 2014
I would show up to work on time and everyday. I learned more about piping. I worked well with my co workers. I did think the management could have communicated with employees more. I would be told something in morning meeting on how to do a job and what to do. Half way through the job management would come tell us to do the job another way. There was – more... a lot of wasted supplies and time which made the job go over budget causing many people to be laid off sooner than job was suppose to be. The most enjoyable part was being able to learn new jobs and my co workers was very enjoyable to work with. – less
Contractor in the Middle East. It is what it is. Overall they took care of me. Sometimes interacted with people that should not have been in management but you get that anywhere, afterall you have to learn sometime. Logistics was awesome for where we were. Pay was great!
Instrumentation Helper (Former Employee), Orange Texas – June 16, 2014
Pros: lots of work
Cons: management, limited breaks, poor scheduling
Always being asked our opinion but never made changes. A typical day at work consisted as a morning safety meeting. A JSA then work plan. Head to the tool room to get tools then get to work. I enjoyed al of my coworkers, just not the upper management. The hardest part of the job would be getting filed super intendants to be open to new ideas to benefit – more... the Company. The most enjoyable part of the job was making new friends, and contacts for future work. – less
DIRECTOR OF LOGISTICS (Former Employee), Iraq – June 16, 2014
Pros: meals, housing, pay
Cons: away from family
To be able to give back to those who make the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom is an opportunity like no other. At times USG procurement and red tape can be tedious but ultimately the job is very fulfilling.
