Foreman / Superintendent (Former Employee), Westbrook / Lewiston Maine – May 30, 2014
Pros: you might get one bbq with hot dogs a year
Cons: no job securiy
We were laid off for in early September for the winter early and brought back to work late in the spring early year. You are a number at Lane don't let them fool you. Forget about having a family at Lane because they are a bottom line company.
EQUIPMENT OPERATOR (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – February 20, 2014
I ran a bulldozer, track hoe and motor graders. Any equipment necessary to lay pipe. I also operated a GPS Topcon and Trimble when needed. I was capable of doing any job on site with any piece of equipment on site.
could be a good job but management wont have that.
Crane Operator (Former Employee), 485 Charlotte – October 13, 2013
Pros: there are no pros
Cons: short checks, must be willing to give up any sign of a personal life, did i say short checks? they will screw you on your money!
(Warning) Lame has serious issues with time keeping. The last 8 weeks I worked here none of my checks were right. Shorted me on OT pay regularly. Superintendent micro manages the job. Wanted me to put my CCO's on the line daily, running cranes that should have never been on site. Totally UN-Certifiable cranes. If you have the certifications you will – more... get stuck on the junk cranes. Only those with min. CERT's get the new cranes. Once they pick you up from the parking lot in the morning, you had no clue when you were going to get off. Could be a good job if superintendent wasn't stuck in the 70's. Slave driver mentality. If your not operating the crane he expects you to tie steel or some other job out of your trade. You've been warned. I've heard its just this superintendent, I couldn't afford to stay and find out. Also, anyone with a white hat IS going to give you some orders, not because he knows what he's doing but simply because he has a white hat and wants to show his power. Very egotistical bunch at this company. – less
labor (Current Employee), Cheshire, CT – March 17, 2013
Pros: free healthcare, pay scale
usually work 10 to 16 hr days, any weather. Always learning something new everyday. Co-workers are always easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was being away from my family every weekend.
Truck Driver/Laborer (Former Employee), Washington, ME – November 16, 2012
Pros: good pay, decent equipment.
Cons: long hours, weekend work, hot.
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 – more... dont mind long hot hours then this is perfect for you. – less
Heavy Equipment Operator and Transporter (Former Employee), Maitland, FL – June 18, 2012
Pros: in my journey with the company always had a new adventure.
Everyone worked as a team professional and curtious day in and out. I also learned to inspect pipes and under ground inpections. There wasent a part of my experience I didn't enjoy in working for Lane and no task too hard.
