Contractor (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – October 27, 2016
I enjoyed working for KBR in Iraq. It was a pleasant work environment for me.The room accommodations was the best. We had three R&R's a year every three months.They really knew what they were doing to support the mission. KBR is a very good company to work for.
Principal Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Waggaman, LA – October 18, 2016
I had the priviledge of working for a company that was everything I could invision in an employer, surrounded by a team of professionals I now call friends. We would start each day with our daily saftey meeting formatted so that anyone could bring their concerns and recognitions to the table. We were lead by some of the industries brightest leaders. Everyday was unique, i consider myself fortunate to have been selected to be a part of this team.
Information Technology Manager (Former Employee) – Mobile County, AL – October 17, 2016
I was contracted to perform IT work for a third party account. KBR is a construction contractor firm so the IT portion was an unknown area for them. The management was amazing and listened when there were problems, they went to bat for the employees when it was possible or necessary. Compensation and benefits were higher than average for the current market. Job Security and Advancement are atypical for traditional contract work, I was not offered any type of written contract which left me feeling as though they wanted an open ended contract to freely eliminate positions as it fit their current budget constraints.
Senior Piping Designer (Current Employee) – Newark, DE – October 6, 2016
I work for seven years, one year at the office at Delaware and 6 years at a site at Dupont Manatí P.R. They never had a Human Resources expert dedicated to site committing big mistakes. once they cancel the contract with Dupont they never offer a relocation opportunity at the exit interview we had a contract prepared by KBR which did not allow us to return to work at KBR or its subsidiaries which is not fair for an employee with excellent assessments.
at the site the client determine we can not take breaks
Too bureaucratic. Too many fat cat middle managers. CEO seemed to have lost vision. Ceo was a VP at earlier company, saw an opportunity to ride the wave back up and make money for himself coz the earlier ceo bill utt screwed up and took the stock down. Unluckily for the new ceo the market conditions degraded and could never ride up.
Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – October 3, 2016
KBR was out at the BP plant which is very safety oreinted . The job was fine the hours were great 4 10's with over time help was there if you nneed it employers listened to you on concerns you nmight have had
Typical day consisted the many challenges of feed/pre-feed work while keeping up with demand of client deadlines. I've learned specifically how to utilize Smartplant P&ID along with auto-cad and micro station to create, modify, and to assure continuity in with all P&IDs. Management was consistent with allowing its people to be accountable for their work - establishing a responsibility that didn't need to be micromanaged. Colleages are always motivated and encouraged to take more challenging tasks to push ourselves. This provided a great work place environment for everyone allowing us to be a team. Although we all had different jobs to perform, we all had the same goal to achieve.
Iron Worker (Former Employee) – Enid, OK – September 22, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job would probably be the co-workers. Its not a miserable place because you are bored and just tired and ready to go home. The people makes the day go by faster and you also have a productive day.
