Applicants BEWARE !! Do your homework
Supervisor / mid Level Manager (Current Employee), NCNovember 21, 2014
Pros: steady paycheck
Cons: high turn-over / company in financial trouble / do not follow company values.
Lane Construction has lost many project bids and there is a reason for it. High turnover, low morale, no advancement. Corporate Office is not in tuned with field workers. Lane ruined a great company (Rea Construction). So many fellow employees are looking elsewhere. Hoping to find another job soon, can no longer take this unberable environment. Just – more... not healthy or worth it. – less

Used to be a great company...
Quality Control (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCOctober 4, 2014
Pros: pay is good
Cons: too many too list
Was once a great company... things changed. Not enouph help on the paving crews. The plants are short handed. The QC department is strecthed thin. The average worker is being overworked. No time for a family life here outside of work unless you are upper managment or an engineer. Big layoffs a couple of years ago in the fields but none in mamagent. – more... The projects are overstaffed with engineers. If your single have an engineering degree might be a place to work. But if not don't consider this place. Your just a number here. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Cheshire, CTNovember 11, 2013
After seven years I was laid off due to Lane having a bad year, my boss submitted a proposal to show how money could be saved so my job could be saved. The executive team declined. The executive team also did not change their spending habits in any way. 2014 is going to be their best year on record, but the Shareholders wanted more and more. there is – more... no loyalty at Lane, they are all about #1 Lane. – less

Think Twice,.....
Crane Operator (Former Employee), 485 CharlotteOctober 12, 2013
Pros: there are no pros
Cons: short checks, must be willing to give up any sign of a personal life.
Serious issues with getting my pay right. Shorted me out of OT all the time. This could be a great job, however micro managing and shorting employees on their pay makes for rapid employee turnover. Nice people, but I can't eat nice. They have cranes that shouldn't even be on a job. They wanted me to put my CCO's on the line to run the most rundown cranes – more... I've ever seen still in operation. Totally UN-Certifiable. Then on top of that, shorted me on my pay. When you got there in the morning, you had no clue when you might get off. I've heard other jobs were run much better. Superintendent seems to be stuck in the 70's. Slave driver mentality. – less

Lane Construction - Think three times
Staff Member (Former Employee), East CoastJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: compensation and benefite outstanding
Cons: lack of advancement, management lack accountability, and poor life/work balance.
Lane had massive lay offs in 2013. Corporate to field staff were let go without notice. After being an organization that value its employees, the organization turned it back on the people that helped Lane achieved it outstanding growth in the last five years prior.

The Executive Team and Upper Management with their large salaries and very comfortable – more... perks give up nothing as they ushered long term staff members to the door. Maybe management will have to forgo bonus this year, likley they will be compensated this year and the next for their great job of turning the company around on the back of its loyal former employees. – less
