Job site Assistant (Current Employee) – Fort Bragg, NC – October 27, 2015
There's never a dull day at the jobsite. Always plenty to do but as long as you work at a steady pace you won't get overwhelmed. Management is very fair and understanding with any concerns you may have. Safety is a huge thing so whatever concerns arise, it will never be overlooked. The company gives back once a month by sponsoring what they call a "safety lunch" when they buy lunch for all employees and talk about safety as a reminder to how important it is to everybody.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – June 20, 2015
A typical day at work is not quite typical if you ask me. It always begins by one of the various craft superintendents needing me to write a requisition for them to order miscellaneous tools or consumables. After I finish ordering the third Metabo drill of the month, I begin to approve invoices and call vendors when I stumble upon a discrepancy....

I'm not trying to be mean but this was a tough job. The peope were cool enough but the only break was lunch and when you work a 12 hour day in the high temps, it was killer. You could grab a quick drink or snack but eating was not allowed on the structure. You couldn't go to the break tent, so it was kind of tough. Quitting time and lunch was a horn warning so it wasn't necessary to wear a watch. Quit time was 20 past the hour and it was expected that you clean up as well as get your personal and company tools put away in very little time. My forman and co-workers were great. They were the reason to smile and the reason I would return for the next phase if called. Everyone tried to help each other and that made your day a bit more brighter.

I enjoyed my overall experience with Robins and Morton, and it was a good job for somebody like me. (Young, single, few obligations) The management was quite good, they were always fair, decent, and gentlemanly. Work got done no matter the conditions. I left because they hired a girl to manage the crew I was on that had no CLUE what she was doing. She was pretty bad at her job and she hated me, but it wasn't a big deal until I just left to work elsewhere.
Very good people to work with. Management was balanced and a pleasure to work with. A large company-wide safety meeting with routine exercises started each day. Hardest part of work was walking down the pipe lines to be tested to isolate them following the P&IDs layouts of the test. Most enjoyable part of the job was to get it done and enjoy the company and friendships of the workers. I always tried to stay focus on the job, though the interactions with fellow workers is nice. I hated to keep turning everyones attention back to our job and away from talk and fun, but felt it very necessary. The feeling of accomplishment pleased my heart. Safety was a part of the management's respectful relationship with its workers (safety was lived and well lived) A fine company to work with.
very good teamwork with help through the management, management was considerate towards workers, good communications with understanding the projects to be done.
some workers were judgmental and a little difficult to work with.
Retyped Change Orders Kept up with employees hours and attendance Learned about construction business this was very rewarding Very good co-workers all very pleasant to work with Hardest part was learning about the change orders and how important they were legally so every word had to be accurate and precise. After I learned the procedure of doing the Change Orders it was very enjoyable and very interesting
good benefits and hours
after the construction job was complete i was laid off
Construction Supervisor of laborers (Former Employee) – Wesley Chapel, FL – September 2, 2013
Start my day in the office at 6:30 am then went out to the building site of a 12 story hospital. Talked to my workers and placed them on the different floors that work needed to be done. Construction clean up. Keep the workers busy and worked along side of them showing them what was to be expected out of our work day. Carrying up to 100 pounds of pipe, garbage, concrete to dumpsters and keeping the floors clean of the subcontractors mesh. Walking up12 flights of stairs 30 times a day was great exercise. Working as a team and getting tied off with a harness walking the ledge cleaning the edges of the building, guiding the loll into bring in materials and running the front loader to pick up debris was some of the fun parts of the job. The 58 hours a week steady with overtime was definitely a great plus.
