Apprentice Electrician (First year) (Former Employee) –  Millington, TNDecember 3, 2018
Everything started out good. I was one of the best. Fast and hard working. Did everything better than the rest. One day it did not count. Before the job was done and before they were no longer hhiring I was layed off. Politics are not a reason to get fired...

Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMay 21, 2018
Absolutely horrible managers. Terrible. No work life balance. They want you to slave away and they will only allow 30 minute lunches but you have to work during lunch.

Some projects however, can be understaffed which can strain the project staff. Overall, project teams are interactive and collaborative. Company culture is stable conservative.

Fun fast paced production job
Electrical Installation Apprentice (Current Employee) –  United StatesFebruary 6, 2018
This is a repetitive production based job. The weather would be the hardest part of the job, to much rain or snow and the job would get weathered out.

Union Laborer - Quality Control Inspector/Operator (Former Employee) –  Paso Robles, CAJanuary 26, 2018
This company is the second company I worked for, they always kept you working, but takes care of their workers, they are big on safety, and help you learn and grow with the company. They are big on picking picking up workers who are willing to travel for work. Management team is very professional and smart.
Pros
management, safety, career advancements
Cons
constantly traveling, that's if you mind traveling

Very large corporate contractor
Project Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZDecember 12, 2017
McCarthy is huge, but still try to keep a personal touch on employee relations. The pay was very generous, but, I earned every darn dime of it. Work life balance is 80% work and 20% work. McCarthy becomes your family in some ways good and some bad.
Pros
Good teamwork and support
Cons
You sell your soul to McCarthy

Laborer (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 8, 2017
The company is large enough to provide stability, and the benefits offered are some of the best in the construction industry. If you want to move up and learn something new, just make yourself available and ask someone.
