Fun place to work with terrific managers. Comunication and scheduling critical. Often work alone on job sites with little oversight.
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – October 1, 2018
The managers of the Louisville branch are terrific people to work with and can help you with multiple certifications and work based experiences. The job is inspection of jobsites and testing building materials, whether that be concrete, mortar, soil, steel, etc. Building and Earth (B&E) does at good job at teaching and explaining how to perform these tests and site observations. However, as a technician, one will be covering multiple job sites by oneself so the ability to be self sufficient it a required quality. The hardest part of the job is communicating and coordinating with the jobsite superintendents and B&E mangers making sure all things are covered. This can lead to radical hours of work (3-4 AM Concrete pours). However, all of these difficulties become worth it once the final structure is built and a sense of accomplishment can felt.
