I enjoyed working at Choate for about 13 years

When I first started at Choate there wasn't much training in place for new hires but over the years they vastly improved their training protocols. The people whom I worked with were mostly very pleasant and several of them became my friends. I wouldn't trade my experience there for anything.

Two for One

You will get two years experience for every year spent at Choate. You will learn lots of different positions because they run lean and don't have huge staffs on jobs.

Fast paced,first stop,site office to check daily projects look at blue prints,to get diminsions, and or measurements. asiagn crews to different jobs. Layout different areas to work on. Most of the crews were latino,some of them could not speak English. Two brothers provided great translation services for me.One day I got into a footing to clean and level the bottom and two of my crew ran over,one grabbed the shovel from me and the one who spoke perfect english said you are the boss,you don't shovel dirt. you already have enough to do!

Pros

Work Here

Great company to work for. The guys up top have been around since the beginning and they want everyone they hire to advance to bigger roles and make more $. They also expect you to WORK... But that's a lot easier to do with a company who makes it worth your while!

Pros

Not scared of overtime

Cons

Not scared of overtime....

O.K. place to work

The office mananger liked to do the 5 p.m. rounds to see who was still working and watch the halls to see what time you left, it did not matter when you came in. The office environment and work hours did not respect family time.I was pressured to compromise my morals and values.Work out site the office (job sites) was rewarding.

Hard charging and demanding work environment

Very procedural, but a throw you in - sink or swim - approach with minimal training. Accounting drives operations and acts as Sargent at arms to deal with procedural deficiency. Does not tolerate even minor oversights or late submissions without issuing pointed reprimand. Flat management pyramid and middle management wears a lot of hats with little support. Requires a lot of hours beyond the normal work week continuously to accomplish all job demands. The upside is you learn a lot from doing everything.

Pros

chance for bonuses

Cons

easy to burn out
