Fast paced, challenging, demanding, growing too fast
Sales (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 18, 2018
I believe Zachry is better than the average corporation, but with a lot of room to improve. As it has grown it has lost its emphasis on family and loyalty, and is less loyal to employees than it was under the founder and his son.

Should pay workers off when laid off.
Electrician (Former Employee) –  Mansfield LaApril 11, 2018
I was not paid when laid off as a Reduction in Force. A 2 week Shutdown I got layoff on 8th day. I live 290 miles from jobsite. Laid off on a Monday and said payday is Thursday. Pick up check at jobsite or we'll mail it. So I'm in a weekly rate, time to pay motel. Have to go home without pay. How long will it take to get mail.
Pros
Money was fair.
Cons
Dont pay when lay offs happpen. Bad when you ain't received first payday .

pipefitter helper not a good position
Pipefitter Helper (Former Employee) –  Freeport, TXMarch 24, 2018
Not good if you have a worthless foreman or GF. Most of the time they don't care about you and safety like they preach. Won't advance like they preach. You will work hard with no reward. They need helpers and you will say a helper unless you have a good foreman or GF. Like they say... "You are going to stay what you came in as". I won't go in as a helper again. No per diem for helper kills you with Zachry. And night shift they give you a dollar more but 30 mins less a day than day shift. I worked with Zachry at 2 locations thinking I could maybe advance the 2nd time around. No luck with the chain of command, all my hard work and goals fell on deaf ears. DONT DO IT!!!
Pros
its a job
Cons
many cons
