hardest part of my job

I would say that I love the work at Bechtel and like the environment. But I will say hardest part of my job is my title. I'm combo welder and felt like I could of been paid fairly and feel in male dominated field they tend to overlook us women. I have set many records for welding and installing and am hard working always. Like many other places it's acknowledged but never raises for those that really shine or evaluate Same as men and the company amazing management could improve

Every day I miss it

I was forced to leave Bechtel for family obligations. I felt like everything I did for this company had a strong purpose. It got hard and stressful at times but they pay you fairly for what you sacrifice. I miss it and would go back if ever given the opportunity.

My personal opinion of Bechtel

I began this journey with Bechtel back in 2008. I was barely making ends meet working for local #459 out of Belleville Illinois. Out of the blue the local business agent called and asked if I could be at the Prairie State project that morning, so I quickly answered yes and I’ve been blessed to be with Bechtel ever since. I’m so grateful for Bechtel. They have paid off my house, help put my child through college, and I have been able to clear any and all debts. This company actually cares about all the people who work for them and that shows. 14 years later I’m still proud to say I’m a Bechtel employee and my personal life is pretty good. Thank you to the Bechtel family for making this possible.


Free classes such as NCCER, electrical, welding and etc.


Can’t really say any cons about this company.

Heavy workload, but not anymore than usual for the industry.

I really enjoyed working at Bechtel. I learned. something new everyday and it was challenging which only helped me become better at my position. Bechtel is proactive, not reactive to issues of concern and by using this approach, you keep people safe and keep the projects moving forward.


Great pay and great learning atmosphere.


More tuition assistance needed.

Great short goal company

The job is what you make it. Come in, stay engaged in your work and keep your head down then repeat. You can do well for yourself by seeking out cross-training opportunities. Good tech talks and symposiums. From Day 1 learn as much as you can to become more marketable for your future advancement goals.


The name looks good on your resume, nice annual bonuses


The business needs change quickly

Solid Company with Potential to Grow

I worked for Bechtel for 12 years. You must learn their way of doing things. If you can do that you will succeed. Bechtel is over 100 years old and they will be around a long time. They have a formula for success and it works.


Strong and old company.


Will have to travel with this company.

Great company to work for. Unfortunately, the company moved so I could not commute and relocate at that time

My management team was excellent. That makes a big difference at work and I was lucky to be part of the team. Unfortunately, the company moved so I could not commute and relocate at that time.

Most of the people on site worked well with me and I with them

Worked outside my job School, special concessions was put in for me to move up and it was approved but on-site management refuse to do it to promote me

Good company care about employees

Overall a good company to work for. When time off was needed for personal reasons, they gladly accommodated my needed time off, and made sure my position was not filled. I was able to return to work like I hadn't missed any time at all.

Good place to work

Decent pay. Plenty of hours. Learned a lot while working there. Lots of traffic entering and leaving work. Sometimes difficult to get tools or supplies from tool room clerks.

Es una empresa cuya máxima preocupacuon es la Seguridad del trabajador. Tiene un programa de atención personalizada para con los trabajadores que se lesionan en el trabajo ya sean lesiones leves como otras de mayor impacto. Es una empresa que me dió el valor que no veía . Hoy puedo decir mil gracias Bechtel y estamos a la orden... Vale la pena seguir a esta empresa a dónde se dirija.

Wonderful Employer

Feels like family but in a good way. Great flexible hours, good pay, great work environment and supportive management. Only wish it wasn't a project only position.

Good work experience, but management leadership has sunk to low levels.

Great projects, but as the work booked decreased the company culture tanked to the lowest levels during my 30 year career. The current management team does not practice what they promote. In a family company it is key to be part of the family, if you want to advance.


You want to travel - work here.


Family company, management treats people poorly, and you will travel all the time.
