The Base pillars are good, but the management is not great
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – South San Francisco, CA – July 20, 2018
the office atmosphere was pretty flexible and easy going. overall i felt comfortable and like i could communicate with most of my fellow co-workers. management however is another thing. they really don;t know how to communicate properly to their employees what they want or how to properly advance. they make changes without looking at their employees and seeing what is best for them as w hole. they look up instead of inside.
PTO is not too bad
kept raising healthcare rates, management bad at communicating

shaking out witch is setting out the parts for the torque tubes like the couplers barring's and brackets. I learned how to rack and how to mount the motors on the piles. The management was always close by monitoring the work task being performed. The culture was fast paced the hardest part was walking the arrays and racking over trenches if there was one or if the pile was to high to reach while racking and the uneven walking surfaces. I liked the scenery it was different.
day were long but was do able for people willing to work
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Toppenish, WA – May 22, 2018
what my typical day looked like was just either picking companies belongings or taking down walls. The hardest part of the job is it would get really hot some days and wasn't the best when I had to work outside because of the smoke that was in the air. the things I didn't really learn anything because the stuff I knew knew how to do. Management would be picky on how things were about what I could and couldn't do, my supervisor would also micro manage at times.

I felt Swinnerton builders was a great company to work for. They offered the training needed to enhance your career and the culture was definitely a team work environment. I would recommend this company to anyone
Concrete Worker (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – January 30, 2018
I learned a lot of different fields of construction. It is a perfect place to make a career. Great benefits and Great compensation as well. If u like working hard for your money this is the place for you.
Real great company to work for, I went from project admin to project accounting work on-site and enjoyed my position. I would have loved to be still working for this company unfortunately they pulled out of Houston and no longer do business here.

My experience with swinerton was great! I knew a little about what the job assigned to me and they were very understanding when didn’t understand something. They took time out to make sure I understand what needs to be done day in day out. Long work hours, but it was worth working. The pay was good and lots of overtime! Over all I was glad to work with swinerton.
Very understandable leads and foreman. Work as a team. Pay was good.
Only con was it was though a temp agency and wish I could get on fully with the company.

Good culture long work hours when on project employee motivation from project to project can lack everyone responsible only for their work, minimal teamwork and collaboration competitive benefits and pay
HR Records Assistant (Current Employee) – San Francisco – August 22, 2017
My manager had her own style of management. She doesn't believe in team work, but finds it fun to put her team members into challenging situations or pushing them to compete. Thus, she's never opened to suggestions.
