Art Director/Senior Graphic Artist (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – November 15, 2018
Skanska is a great place to work emphasized by the amazing people it employ's. The company itself isn't the best, and although it preaches diversity and inclusion, it doesn't seem to live up to it's own standard. No real opportunity for advancement or growth unless you're apart of the "club". Overall not a bad place, and management tries to take care of the employees.
Great benefits package, phenomenal colleges, great mission and projects.
No growth opportunities, office location is terrible.
Project Manager & Building Contractor Intern (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 3, 2018
I learned a lot about project management and what it means to be one at the level of competence that Skanska expects. I had to put on many hats as only intern in terms of tech savvy-ness to people skills and basic know how of a construction environment. My supervisors took me under their wing and helped steer me in a direction that pushed me in creativity and diligence that came with accomplishing new tasks.
Shuttle Driver (Former Employee) – Queens, NY – September 5, 2018
Job was ok. The executives I drove within the airport were really nice. Management was lacking at times but overall not too bad. Some supervisors lacked leadership or involvement with some of the workers.
CAD Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 5, 2018
It was a great opportunity and great team at First Street tunnel project. I learned many new things during my two years with Skanska there. they gave me the good lead to success, very good management team. I was proud to be a part of Skanska.
Leadman/Operator (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – August 26, 2018
I really enjoyed working for Skanska. I moved up very fast with the company, but went a different way with things. I went to get my NCCCO certs and the company supported me through all of it. When I got done there was no seats open so I had to leave them to follow my passion. Hopefully one day I will be able to return to skanska and get back to work with the great friends I made there.
CAD Tech II Lead (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – August 17, 2018
Great Benefits, Good Salary. Clean Healthy Environment. Education assistance was available. Somewhat flexible hours. I just wish they had taught me more electrical engineering instead of just drawing electrical schematics. Transfer to another department was not an option.
Assistant Superintendent (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 13, 2018
I learned many things but felt i could've learned a lot more if i had a better manager. Theres a lot of personal politics and people throwing each other under the bus on the larger projects. Days were extremely long sometimes but that is normal for this industry.
very good benefits, have some talented people working for them
Project Accountant (Former Employee) – Miami and Fort Lauderdale – August 4, 2018
On site helping the project managers to stay on schedule by facilitating payments and ensuring work completion matched cash flow needs. Very supporting teams and great mentorship from management. Finishing the high school and watching the excitement on the kid's faces was very rewarding. Staying on schedule given subcontractor hurdles was the most challenging.
Site changes once projects were substantially complete
Coordinator/Superintendent (Former Employee) – NYC – August 2, 2018
Skanska was very intense workplace. They demanded a lot from there employees. I work for them for short time and had to leave do to knee injury. But I can tell you from my experience, if you know and do your job, you can be very successful at Skanska
Superintendent (Current Employee) – Portsmouth, VA – July 31, 2018
Skanska promotes "care for life" on all of its jobs. It really depends where you go, and who you work for with this company. I've had great managers, and really terrible managers. You will get a great work experience with Skanska, the projects are massive.
