Time off is essential to being creative and productive. For example, many Black & Veatch teams offer a 9/80 schedule where a full-time professional works 80 hours over the course of 9 business days instead of 10. This makes for longer work days, but also allows professionals to have every other Friday off. A 9/80 schedule is completely optional, and full-time professionals can work a 40 hour work week if they choose.
Flexible start and end times are available as well as part-time employment options. We also support work from home options for appropriate roles within the business.
The standard hours are 40 hours per week for full-time employees. Your hours worked are dependent upon the role/project/responsibilities of your position.
The merit cycle is annual with increases being awarded for those professionals you have a successful performance evaluation.
Black & Veatch will ask job specific questions related to your skills/abilities in reference to the minimum and preferred skills needed to be successful in the role. In addition candidates may be asked questions that align with our core values.
Black & Veatch is a global company with over 10,000 employees. It is likely that someone in your network is a current or former employee. I would encourage you to connect with them to learn about our culture/values/benefits.
Do most BV contractors convert to employees after one year? That is what I was told by the contractor Modis Engineering.
Conversion of contract labor is based upon business need.
