What can I say... Fluor hired me 5 years ago and I love every bit of the company. Just like with all relationships, there are some areas that I think can be worked on. Hate that there are no open positions available for me on project sites at the moment. The only reason I am entertaining another company is for EXPAT experience. I've been overseas with – more...

Soldier. I have learned great improvements in understanding a viewpoint of construction safety and taken formal safety classes to improve my capabilities to protect the employees, and corporate version of management added to my military understanding of leadership. I learn from my employers, peers and subordinates different manners to accomplish a task and that others know as much, if not more, than I do on a given subject. The most challenging aspect of the job is trying to determine what the enemy will do next to harm our employees and how the Reduction In Force will effect the employees that remain on the job. The absolutely most enjoyable aspect of the job is being challenged in a variety of ways to push myself beyond my realized potential to a newer version of myself with new knowledge, skills and abilities as opposed to doing the same tasks every day the same. I live to be challenged and have a lot to offer beyond the position I am being being considered for hired. I am currently enrolled in HAZWOPER 24 and taking SIx Sigma Green Belt training with Lean management. – less
