The company has their values posted all over the place... what a joke. Everyone laughs at the plaque. The employee turn-over is so high, below average benefits, they can't land a job in NC if it was giving to them and they expect you to move with no notice.
If you think you will get ahead don't count on it. There is virtually no development because the training dept. is non existent. The HR dept. is probably the worst as they absolutely have no clue and as well as the Estimating Dept. Lane is surrounded by so many that have mentally quit but they still work there just collecting a weekly check.
If you want to work there, you better think twice and do your research.Invest in your future elsewhere. Lane will be gone from NC / SC very soon.
Everyone there was really nice and easy to talk to. Premises was always clean and kept up. Co-workers were always in a good mood and stress free. If I had a question about a project, no one had a problem helping me or giving information. Learning the flow of the business and working with all of the reps made each day challenging, and fun.
Used different variety of equipment, not limited to listed.... The bosses never communicate and everyone pays for it in the end, They will send you to one plant and other boss send you back ..on and so on..But I enjoyed what I did as far as my job..

friendly and productive, friendly reception. Easy to make relationships with fellow employees in a productive manner. nice work parties and picnics throughout the year. good morale around the whole company. encouraging management
A ton of fun if you can get past the screaming and loud equipment.

To start the day you gather the tools you need to do the job and head down the mountain sometimes making three to four trips. The manager would sit in his truck filling out paper work and making phone calls scheduling concrete and such and occasionally come down to check on your progress. Your co-workers are compliant most of the times just do not get under foot. The hardest part of the job is staying out of the way of the machinery. For the most part I love looking at the mountains and being able to make a difference.

Summers working for Lanes Construction are busy! Dont expect a home life but expect great pay checks. The hours you work are unreal. I would say Lanes owns you in the summer time. If you like days at the beach and vacations with yuor family in the summer and fall,,,dont look for work with Lane Construction. If you want to make some big paychecks and dont mind long hot hours then this is perfect for you.

Never ending long hours, not enough manpower to handle volume of office work.Not enough collaboration between departments to allow for smooth flow of paperwork, information and processes. Very safety conscience corporation.
Expensive healthcare, extensive driving to on-site locations
lane construction was hit very hard during katrina, but it bounced back with a vengence.laying cement daily was hard work but it made you feel good at the end of the day.management was good and they called me yankee. i put in the casino parking pad and in biloxi ms., very enjoyable watching the people watch the only wpman out there doing that kind of work.
