Electrical Foreman (Current Employee) – Westlake, LA – January 28, 2019
Very fast paced and stressful but a very competent group. I would definitely recommend this job. Great pay and the company values the skilled craftsmen and quickly deals with the unqualified people that slip through processing from the hr office.
Shop Clerk (Former Employee) – Walker, LA – January 28, 2019
They hire you and expect you to sit there and do nothing for the first month. Then they call you and let you know that you no longer have a job because you didn’t do any work the day after you finally get access to the company system to be able to do any work. All while you have to deal with extremely poor management skills.
Laborer / Tool room Foreman (Former Employee) – Hackberry, LA – January 14, 2019
I was terminated for answering a call to replace a malfunctioning 75/25 cage. The cage was malfunctioning so I immediately replaced it without making sure no one was using it. since it was called in with an issue I automatically assume that the supervisor over the welders informed his crew of the equipment failure. well he did not and the blame was put on myself for the weld needing to be repaired after the gas was shut off on it. So at that point the welder and welder foremen got upset with me and a argument pursued. I was dismissed from the project for misconduct. I shouldn't had been at fault for that incident. I may have had some part in it buy disconnecting the gas but the welders was using equipment that was malfunctioning and that may have been the cause of the bad weld.
Pay through lunch, and $2.00 more per hour at night
I lost a lot with this outfit. More time on a bus than you would believe and the dog eat dog atmosphere unreal. That's why so many people left that site.The push for advancement often left positions open to inexperienced then incompetent persons.
Many people advanced their careers an earnings long term job.
Some of the employees did not learn the trades they advanced too Good Luck in the real world.
Currently I have been rolled over to McDermott from CB&I at the MOX Project located in Aiken, SC. The current MOX Project is being terminated by the Federal Government and there has been no real interaction
Worked with some good people from all over the world from different trades
Structural Welder (Former Employee) – Hackberry, LA – November 11, 2018
It was a good place to work, I was able to provide good for my family, safe program in place I hated to get laid off when I really feel they could have used me somewhere else I know there was a lot more welding that needed to be done in other areas. The management out on the job site I believe was poor and was all like a brother in law system , they didn’t use a worker to his/ her full potential and knowledge instead would rather hire inexperienced not really a fair program, but still you mind your own business do what you got to do it was still a good job
The company is currently going through an acquisition and resource transfer of CB&I to the McDermott portfolio of companies. This has given an atmosphere of uncertainty within the management organizational structure. Unfortunately, the upper management lacks the proper decision making skills required to advance the project. This has led to project schedule delays that can not be recovered.
