Graphic Designer 2 (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – September 6, 2018
CH2M was s good place to work. I learned about corporate graphic design, the company gave me my start and I loved working there. Jacobs bought it out and I was laid off so I don’t care for Jacobs. But CH2M I loved working for.
Receptionist/Administrative Aide (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 19, 2019
Starting at 7:30pm each day, my hours were from 8am to 5pm, there was never any moments in between for office conversation until lunch. High volumes of incoming/outgoing phone calls daily, guest/ clients/town meeting/luncheons/responsible for café room, delivery of milk for 160 people weekly. ID cards for new hires inside office or field workers. FedEx/Ups/ weekly mail incoming and going out. Weekly mail distributed 160 employees on a daily basis. Assisting the Marketing Unit with proposal drawings on a timely manner that needed to be sent out and returned ASAP.
Learning how prioritize my work was hard for me at first but I quickly adjusted, it was not easy. .
Management was always on hand letting you know if you needed there assistance in any way.
From the start of my job in 2004, there was a diversity of people from all walks of life, I loved the way everyone worked well with each other, it was a beautiful thing to see. .
With my full daily duties already on of the jobs given to me by boss, I have to honestly say, that was a job I did not think I should have been given. I did the job of checking the ceiling bulbs to see which ones were out in the office of a 160 or more people,I also had to check the Garbage Ben each day to make sure if it was filled or not, and report back to my Boss.
I have always wanted to be a Receptionist/Clerical at a good Firm, and Jacobs Engineering Firm, was that place for me. in 2004. Every day was great seeing people from all over the world come to our office, and i would greet them, and see their faces light up. I can honestlymore... tell you, my smile was like a large light bub, someone forget to turn off. I was very fortunate to be hired on the first day I went for the Interview. I had a wonderful 14 ears there.less
There was always Luncheons for the office/and Cake for Birthdays
Of course Lunch is sometimes, short due to projects that required immediate attention at unusal times during lunch time. .

I enjoy working for this company and all the people that I have come across throughout the years. The transition from Mantech, to Jacobs was a seamless process.

Carpenter Foreman (Former Employee) – Deer Park, TX – March 19, 2019
This was a great company and the lubrizol project in Deer Park Texas was one the best construction projects that I have ever worked on. The management team was great and really looked out for the employees.
People were actually getting along in my group made job more easier

Environmental Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 13, 2019
I was hired after JACOBS acquired another another local engineering firm. Jacobs grows by buying out their competition. Once the competitions contracts have been closed out then those people are offered the opportunity to relocate. If you choose not to relocate then you are fired. A couple of years later the people that were offered relocation again. If you refused then you were fired. once it became evident that the group i was hired into was not going to be allowed to bid on any new contracts we all started looking for other jobs.
Work Group Lead (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 10, 2019
In general, it's a good company to work for. They help you get some training Most managers know what they are doing, some still need more experience. Some times it is necessary to put in a lot of overtime for too long a period Nice environment to work in
Test Engineer Level (Former Employee) – Eglin AFB, FL – March 8, 2019
Typical Government contract, however it did not treat all of its employees equally. If you were not part of the good old boys system then you were not treated the same. When you tried to complain then you were treated unfairly.
Electrician and instrument Helper (Former Employee) – La Porte, TX – March 4, 2019
Rushed to work,and materials needed are not always available, iv learned how to better read wire blueprints, bend conduit and tubing. In that particular workplace I was truly the minority and many times treated as such by the foremen, yet I still worked my hardest and performed every job and task asked of me. The most enjoyable part would be working with other co-worker that treats me equal and with respect.
Mechanic clerk (Former Employee) – Morenci, AZ – March 3, 2019
there wasn't enough work for my most days, but when I was done filling out all the mechanics daily work for day shift and night shift, making sure the trucks were scheduled to come in and get worked on, I got to go out to the shop and help work on the trucks, I really learned a lot from this company.
wonderful people to work with and the bosses where cool.
I was hired over the phone to be a Owner's Representative. I really can't rate Jacobs as I really never worked directly for them.
Cost Engineer (Former Employee) – Norco, LA – March 2, 2019
I only received a paycheck from Jacobs. I was an Owner's Rep. and didn't have any interaction with Jacobs at all other than getting a paycheck, so it is hard for me to rate them. However, my time being a Jacobs employee, it was reiterated daily that I was a contract employee. In other words, I was "less than", however, I wasn't singled out, all contract employees were treated the same.
