Great place to work able to learn a lot about building bridges. People easy to get along with most of the time. Pretty laid back place to work as long as you got your job done on time know one really pressured you. Good benefits as far as health, dental, and vision insurance were concerned.
For me it was close to home.
Made way to many concrete cylinders for testing, in my opion.
Walsh is great as long as they have work. I worked in the Heavy Highway Division so I cant speak much for the structures department. We worked a lot of long hours but at Union scale the time was worth the money.
everyone was out for themselves. back stabbing group of individuals. I was middle management and my supervisor threatened my job on a weekly basis to try to motivate me to do my work. very unprofessional environment. I do not recommend this company.
close to home, 20 minute commmute
see my review... cons are i accepted a position there
Culture has a way to go to improve with Safety Culture but is on the right track. Be prepared for the good ole boys club where outsiders and people who can think of a better way of doing things that's more productive and safer to scare them- change is hard.
Take home vehicle
Good ole boys club, low on the salary, be prepared to work a LOT of hours- Kiewit style.
Walsh has very unique employees. I've learned so many things working with this guys . Fun , Safe, Steady Hardworking Environment as well . They are awesome co workers and enjoyed working with those guys & lastly Exellent pay.
Walsh is a good company and it encourages every employee to pay attention to safety. The work environment is fast paced and a little bit stressful sometimes. The compensation is good and the benefits are excellent. Overall, working with Walsh is an excellent choice.
My advice is that the should have a bit of respect with thier workers because the give you lay off and leave to work the most lazy but those are preferred and it is very hard that they work very hard and take the serious and earnest work so that the final give you lay off and stay the most lazy and preferred of clear supervizores are not all
I managed the sales office for the Legacy at Millennium Park for almost 5 years for Walsh Construction. I had daily interactions with condo owners and management and staff. I also conducted pre and post walk throughs with buyers and potential buyers. I also met with contractors and venders on a weekly basis and made sure everything was done in a timely manner and correctly.
Benefits and pay was top notch
There was not a position available for me which the company when the building was all sold out.
Great company that has a lot to offer in many different aspects. Our regional office is downsizing and since i was a newer employee I was let go due to the cutbacks. Working for Walsh it was a great experience and i learned lot of behind he scene work in the construction industry
Steady hours, great location and employees.
Poor management and not a lot of room for advancement.
We would show up to a designated area at 7am and have a safety meeting that would last about 20min . During this time we would also get our assignments for the day. We would head off to our assigned area. the job site covers all of Spaghetti junction of down town Louisville KY, East End off Louisville and southern Indiana. most of the time I was assigned to grade checking and excavation of areas on the job. If they needed help on wire wall or building MSE walls or laying pipe I would go help.
I would learn at any opportunity I was given.
The management very informative on the job and was understanding . I love working with people and training them. The hardest part of the job would be the weather change. But over all I love being an laborer.
