Pros: i have now caught up on my retirement funds and am more secure
Cons: living in a camp situation took a lot of determination and patience, in the end it was very enjoyable and i miss it lots
I learned a lot while working at the Kearl Lake Project for CBI. My experience in construction litigation was beneficial as I received hands on experience on the documents created in this area.

Pros: cover travel expences

The management team and co-workers are very supportive and cooperative. The hardest part of the job is the completion of the last 10% of construction. The most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity to think outside the box.

Laboratory Analyst (Former Employee), Baton Rouge, LADecember 2, 2014
The daily task of the job was to check the products made by other neighboring departments to assure products are in specifications of the company. During my time with the company I learned how to conduct an assortment of test with the mechanical use of Varian, Chromatograph Operation, ICP, and other distinctive instrumentation for sample processing. – more... The management at the company was great at times, but had places where improvement was needed. While working with the company I felt I had a great relationship with them. We worked together well. The hardest part of the job was the demand of the other departments at times. Other than the demand I would say the job was enjoyable to be at. – less

A very productive place to work
Service Order Dispatcher (Former Employee), Fort Benning, GADecember 2, 2014
Pros: servicing the military soldiers and civilians
Cons: the pay
This job allowed me to provide services for the Military and DOD/NAF/Government Contract employees on a daily basis. I learned to process Work Orders for the various Units once they were approved by the Government.
I learned and became proficient in GFEBS and cPROJECTS, which is the software by which the Government tracks funding for the Military Bases – more... and DOD sites.
Worked in concert with a very efficient team, as we were for the most part prior military, therefore we understood the need for the soldier.
The hardest part of this job was having moments of system malfunctions due to our main servers being in another state, therefore not allowing us to effectively do our jobs and service the customer.
What I enjoyed most about this job was servicing the Customer and ensuring their paperwork was processed properly. – less

Good company-
Senior Piping Superintendent (Current Employee), Cartagena, ColombiaNovember 25, 2014
Pros: good managers, hr, and pay
Cons: it's construction, so the work schedule may vary, and work is unsteady
Good managers, HR dept. is great.
The company genuinely cares about personal safety, their employees and delivering a quality built project to the client.

Like anywhere else, when you do your best to show that you are an asset to the company, the managers of that company will do their best to help you grow with the company.
If you are not committed – more... to doing a great job, safely and up to the client's expectations, don't expect to advance. – less

Fitter/Welder (Current Employee), Delcambre, LANovember 22, 2014
CB&I is a great place to work. 95% of the guys are team players. The hardest part of the job is working 18 hours a day for several days in a row! 12 and 14 hour days are relatively easy. The management are good guys to work for, that treat you with respect. The most enjoyable part of the job to me is, after completing a particular project, being able – more... to stand back and be proud of a job well done. A job that I don't mind writing my name on. I care about my reputation as a good fitter and welder. I take pride in my work. Always doing my best, not taking any short-cuts. – less

Large Company which values employees
Quality Assurance Manager (Current Employee), Lake Charles, LAOctober 30, 2014
Pros: good benefits, multiple work locations, great management team
Cons: typical construction industry workforce fluxuations
The work environment was almost always the peak of professionalism. There is pressure to complete tasks on time & under budget, but micromanagement is very rare. I was provided all manner of training, coaching, and support. My co-workers are great to work with and always willing to lend a hand. The most enjoyable part of the job is the team atmosphere, – more... the travel, and the challenges. The hardest part of the job can be the typical red tape process hindering rapid action common to large company's. – less

QA/QC - Inspector II (Former Employee), Geismar, LAOctober 30, 2014
Pros: good working atmosphere, good insurance
Cons: did not keep me working, hourly rate could have been better
I enjoyed learning CB&I's tracking programs, management and co-workers were pleasant. I would say that the hardest part of the project was the frustration dealing with the I&E contractor. The most enjoyable was the completion of my discipline
