No work/life balance. Unfair pay for salaried workers. X
Project Estimator (Former Employee) – Westfield, MA – July 13, 2017
Expect to work no less than 50 to 60 hours per week and if you're on salary the page does not equal out fairly. They do offer excellent benefits and a great starting package as far as company vehicle and paid vacation time but watch out, I was told I would have three weeks of paid vacation after two years of working. Well when the time came for me to take time off, they told me I only have one week paid vacation and then I can only take a certain time of the year. They work their estimators of like slaves and they are a dime a dozen. It's a good working environment if you're ready to commit your entire life to the job expect to have no time to yourself. If you're ready to just work and not be able enjoy life out of work then this is a great job to have, but if you're looking for a nice a work/ social life balance I cannot say I recommend this place. It's a good job but they work you like a slave and you pretty much will live there until they decide to relocate you to New York or Vermont out of the blue
Goodbenefits, average starting pay, company vehicle
Salary workers can expect to work 60 hours per week every week and so I'm only get paid once a month, or once every two weeks at the least
Steady work flow and great compensation, but frankly it was a little dull. In the section I was in, every person was in their own office, and there was very little social interaction unless a deadline was approaching.
Great place to work with opportunities to grow and make a good carrier of it.
Piledriver (Former Employee) – Goldenrod, FL – June 1, 2017
It's a great place to work. You have paid holidays. You work plenty of hours and they always have work weather it's driving pile or helping carpenters. Management is good they have fireman's who will go o er the job with you and teach you new things. I'd say the hardest part about it is the humidity. Other then that it's repetitive and. You work with great ppl who work side by side with you and work as a team including your foreman.
worker guy (Former Employee) – Westfield, MA – May 10, 2017
I learned a ton while working here, and was given a lot of opportunities to advance and learn. The work life balance was not there, which in the end is why I am not working there any more. But there was a lot of fun and hard work and I would recommend to anyone to work there.
Construction Laborer (Current Employee) – South Carolina – May 9, 2017
A construction laborer typical day is meeting at the shop at 6 am, then going to the site. Typically, we will get our equipment ready for the day and it is normally very hot. I enjoy most about my job is the people I work with. I have great conversations with my co-workers.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) – Cheshire, CT – April 18, 2017
Typical day at work started with a brief safety meeting and overall assignment for the day, with the Lane Corporation I learned how to properly and safely operate different pieces of machinery, with this being said the management team was very hands on and open to hear about safety and production suggestions, they really want to see their employees succeed. Although very diverse the workplace culture was very welcoming and enjoyable, there really wasn't anything hard about the job except maybethe unexpected machine malfunctions at times when trying to meet timely requirements. The best thing about this job was having the privelege of working with the best group of people I have ever met and great management team.
Quality Control Technician III (Current Employee) – Westfield, MA – March 17, 2017
Its a job, with little advancement, the hours can be long but generally about 10.The compensation didn't come until the 3rd year, It's now a corporate culture, so it's starting to get much worse of a work environment. You're a number not a person anymore.
SUMMER INTERN (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – February 28, 2017
This place was the one that gave me a chance to succeed. I started working with this company when I after my first year in college and nothing but good things. They gave me real life deadlines and task. Knowing I had little to no experience in the field they still gave me work to do and this made me ask questions. Which eventually pushed me to be better.
Working at Lane Construction was an amazing experience! The workplace environment was nothing but productive and enjoyable! Management was always clear and precise in what they expected from you. My co-workers were always pleasant and ready to help train the "newbie". Teamwork was not only preached but practiced by all members of the department.
