Process Engineer III (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – April 11, 2018
I love the management. I have been provided opportunities to do things I haven't done before such as leading projects. They put a lot of trust in young engineers. If you are good with people, work hard, can write, and are a team first employee looking for more opportunities to show you are ready to advance a lead projects you should try to get on with them.
Team first atmosphere, given ample opportunities, great management

Hargrove Construction and Engineering is a great company to work for. They are always available and willing to help with any questions. The staff is very friendly, and the company always contribute to their employees, including discounts and events.

I worked here for 3+ years and got decent raises, but didn't offset the terrible benefits. Had no management support the entire time; as long as you were billable, they didn't care what you did until your project ran out of hours and they blamed you.
Sr. Staff Process Engineer (Former Employee) – Johns Creek, GA – November 7, 2016
Hargrove was a great place to work. I enjoyed the variety and challenges associated with different projects. I was a very productive member of the office until several months ago. In June 2016 I was assigned to support a project in another office. The assignment was premature as the other office had no work to give me. Weeks went by with prodding by me to my upper management to no avail to get billable work. Needless to say after several months of no assigned billable work, I was laid off approaching my 5th year anniversary.

I enjoyed working at Hargrove as long as I had Billable hours. Middle management is cliquish. With much of my department working out of state and 9 of my coworkers on overhead I was put out on less than truthful circumstances. Sent out to work for a satellite office accusations about my work ethic of a false nature where made. It was suggested by a friend that I sue them and a lawyers name was provided to me. Being a Christian and trusting God would work out the details I declined to do that. I was further insulted by the lack of due process and the forfeiture of 40 hours vacation time I had accrued. Most disappointing of all is it seems I may be on a blacklist for employment in the Mobile Al. To be realistic it all came down to one fellow not liking me. If upper management had known the full story I'm quite certain they would have been disappointed concerning their espoused creed.
Pleasant work environment with only one exception. Great location.
Fast paced growth without billable hours to support that growth
Receptionist/Clerical Assistant (Temporary) (Former Employee) – Johns Creek, GA – September 22, 2015
I enjoyed working at Hargrove; as a faith based company, they had weekly morning devotionals and everyone was professional and friendly. I the only reason I wasn't employed full-time was due to their budget and couldn't continue paying the agency, but everyone appreciated my hard work and had nothing but kind words to say to me upon my departure.
Work-friendly environment where everyone was helpful and worked as a team for the greater cause.
The task of washing out other people's dishes at the end of the day, ie coffee mugs, forks, Coffee containers, etc.
Document Control Clerk (Current Employee) – Mobile, AL – March 20, 2014
A typical day at work is to process incoming transmittals from the engineering firm over the project and to make certain the documentation is then transmitted to the appropriate contractor for the particular phase of the job, process incoming submittals and RFIs and follow up on and close these out once they are resolved. I have to make certain all drawings and documents are up to date and generate a hard copy library of all current and superseded documents. This was my first experience on a large construction project and it was very challenging learning a new document system and struggling to keep up with the demands of the job but everyone pitched in to assist and we worked as a real team. The electronic document system was new to all of us but we learned it together and still got the job done. The team I work with is exceptional and I have enjoyed working with all of them. I have the most patient and understanding construction project manager. He saw the difficulties we all were having with the system and helped all of us to work through the hardships.
Not enough in depth training on the EDS and an inadequate server system.
Piping/Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – June 6, 2012
Really big on pleasing the client. As I was working on a site at a chemcical plant, I was what it appreared to be forgotten. I had no interactions with the company as often as I did when I was in house. I learned alot while on site beacause I could actually see my design work being install as I interface with the contractors.
