Safety Facilitator (Former Employee) – Saint Johns, MO – August 18, 2016
Working with Zachry has been a great life changing experience. I am presently working with this company on the Arizona Outages during the beginning of the year. The Management care deeply for the worker and the company puts forth the greatest effort to keep their employees safe. It is the one company I have worked for that puts Safety before production.
Zachry always reward the employees for safe work habits
Designer III (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – January 19, 2016
The company is in a state of flux in terms of SOP organization, standards, new hire training, training in general. They have little to no standards set up so everyone does things their own way, which makes it hard to keep track of how different engineers want their work done, as well as following up work someone else has done. There is also no clear view of expectations, so you are constantly chasing your tail on everything you do.
I started this job as a Fire Watch Temp and was able to advance to a civil worker on regular maintenance at Exxon Mobile. Everyday after the turnaround I learned something new, and exiting to me. The team of workers were helpful and wanted the best for the company. One of the hardest parts of this job is the work hours and adapting to the turnaround days and nights, but I've never complained. Overall great financial and career job with benefits.
I have worked for Zachry off and on for almost 5 years I have made every call out they have asked of me. the one time I do not make a call it seemed as if I was shunned. I was asking for some time to get a planners position I am very capable of doing the job (possibly better than others) instead it was given to another employee. I was told that I was not experienced enough in my field to get the job. the employee that did get the job was a brother of a supervisor who has never been a millwright. never had more than a job for a year. and had only been with the company for a year.
Helper 6 (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 2, 2015
Productive day cleaning coal off the tripper floor, my co workers were all pleasant to work with. my supervisor was approachable on any subject and would help out when needed, the hardest part of the job is when it got too hot but had water breaks when needed. Enjoyed when company had outings for the employees.
Free breakfast, outings with food, games free prizes.
no benifits until after a year, could get laid off unexpectedly.
Payroll Clerk (Former Employee) – Newnan, GA – February 22, 2016
The company is great to work for. I was always busy checking reports and verifying accuracy of time entered also performed weekly timesheets audits, assisted with accounts payable and receivable. The Business Manager was on site but was also out of the office 2 or more days a week at other plants. The hardest part of the job was when were working 7 days a week 10-12 hours a day. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people that I worked with were like family also a great boss.
Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – September 6, 2015
This is a good solid company that pays good wages/ benefits for a hard working person. Chances for education & advancement are above average. Safety principals are highly stressed. Worker/Management relationship is very smooth.
At the site I currently work at for Zachry, I've found it to be a real good place to work. especially for new guys just breaking out. There is always lots of work going on which in turn offers lots of opportunity for learning. It's really like a big family out there and, like any unit of people there are disagreements but, In the end everyone seems to pull thru unscathed!
The facility available to everyone for lunch and breaks is top notch.
theres a few issues of favoritism and chain of command issues but that's every job i guess
Very professional in all activities. Especially the ones were it comes to the safety of employees as well as all people on site. Learned more about properly checking each job before starting. Meaning all is good and safe. The people you work with is one of the most important aspects of the job. They got your back and you got theirs. Its very satisfying knowing the job you have done was done correctly, completely and above all, safely.
Challenging all day, spending time in the office and out in the field to make sure everything was done according to plans and specs. Basically learned to build bridges from the foundations to the deck, and also in the pavement area, to monitor quality in subgrade, base and concrete-asphalt. Great management team and excellent co-workers relationship, working as a team. What I enjoyed the most was at the end of each day, when I looked back and saw my contribution to build a quality product.
Awesome work place, incredible people and atmosphere
Mechanical Drafter II (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – June 28, 2016
I loved working at this firm, I couldn't have asked for a better first job out of college. I fell in love with the environment and my higher ups. They really put in the effort to get my situated in my new work and helped me grow as a drafter. I respected the quality of work that was created by the team I worked with and the organization of the work flow.
Data Entry (Former Employee) – Freeport, TX – June 14, 2016
I had the 6-6, 12 hours a day type of work when I worked for this company. I would clock in and immediately the day would begin as I started going through my paperwork and my assigned duties for the day. I learned that multitasking was something that could be mastered and appreciated in the construction world. My management and co-workers were definitely different than what I had encountered before. They were the type that if you could not hang with the best then you can pack your stuff and leave; so I had to learn quickly and always be better than the person standing next to me if I wanted to have a job. The hardest part of my job was always the long hours and no personal time off. When you get off at 6 pm every night or later you have no personal time to get things done. You end up choosing your work over your relationships, sleep, family, and other things. The most enjoyable part was once I mastered my multitasking skills I was able to do 5 things at once and still take on more responsibility. It helped me when upper management takes a look at my logs and see's how much I do a day; there's a since of pride that goes along with being noticed for how far you come than when you first start.

Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Cape Canaveral, FL – February 4, 2016
Learned a lot while with Co. Identifying different hazards while doing different jobs in many work areas. Communication is key for any company to strive forward. All crafts and employees must be in the same page for goals to be achieved. Never looking pass a detail, regardless of how small it might be. Taking every single outcome into consideration, this way there is always many alternatives. One of the hardest part was being able to cope with the many different personalities. Regardless, learning to communicate with all those personalities was a great learning experience. Achieving all goals, is and will always be the most fun part of any job. Being able to say that I gave it my best and looking at the final product
