Nepotism and Kissing up to the boss is only way to job security & advancement
jobtitle would give away identity (Former Employee) –  so would job location, and datesAugust 31, 2011
Good place for incompetent people to hide on large job sites, as long as you kiss up to the bosses you can keep your job dispite inabilities. Note to the Uneducated- please apply as long as they act like "Good ol'e Boys" you'll keep your job, but don't be too smart-that's not acceptable as you're a threat to the present upper managers & VP's.Pay scale matches the level of sucking up to the boss and not the benefit you bring to the company. Year end bonuses as well. Yearly awards banquet is for the owners to shower themselves and their relatives with praise as well as to show off their disdain for the avearge worker. So long as the Hunt boys get their demanded respect, private jets and cow-towing workers then every one in the company is expected to be happy.
Cons
long hours-no added pay

Marketing (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 6, 2012
Incredibly difficult place to work as a marketing professional. There are a lot of expectations and hours expected out of the marketing staff at a very low salary. Senior executives view marketing as an admin role and treat you as such. I was once told "even a secretary can step in and do your job." There is a huge disconnect and lack of respect from construction operations management.

Do your research before applying here. Look at how many times marketing jobs have been posted by a company that overall only employs 8 in marketing across the country. I know of one position that has turned over 4 times in the last 2 years; that alone should be your indication that this is a difficult place to work.
Pros
free tickets to sporting events - company has suites in arenas. high profile project pursuits.
Cons
horrible 401k plan, lack of communication for senior management

Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 17, 2015
"The Right People the Right Results"

All of the commercial jobs were of great magnitude. There was a true team feeling when working for Hunt. Travel was required but Hunt made relocating very smooth and hassle free. A great company to work for and I would recommend anyone to this company if they are willing to travel.
Pros
Annual Meeting in Scottdale, AZ, Very elegant Christmas parties with nice Christmas Bonus
Cons
Relocating after each project.

Great place to work depending on the project group.
Project Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZDecember 4, 2013
Had the opprotunity to work with three project teams, two of the teams had great people and the project was enjoyable. However the third team I did not get the team member greeting and you had to fend for yourself. The project ws two years behind schedule and most of the subcontractors were preparing for claims. A very confrontational project between all members involved.
Pros
good compensation.
Cons
not very personable and not willing to share information.
