position was as a team lead and mechanic, mechanical expectations were very standard, hours were exactly as described when hired. work/life balance was exceptional as it was a mon-fri position. Team lead position was rewarding

I would not recommend working at this company. Management doesn't back up its employees. They will use you to get as much as they can out of you for as little pay as possible.

At the time, I was stationed in a camp setting, company was very accommodating, great people to work for and with from being on the ground all the way up to upper management, time away from family is hard to deal with but given a stable economy I’d do it again.

I worked with graham a few times. Always a great company in my years experience until my most recent year. The company has changed drastically due to the upper management and how they treat the employees that better the company. Would I go back. Yes but hopefully under different management.

Graham Construction has a good work ethics and I liked it.
The chance of advancement? Nil.

The wages?..I didn't approve!! I'm a journeyman carpenter, and being paid at $25 an hour? In today's economy? UNACCEPTABLE!!

I WAS GIVEN A 2 DAY NOTICE, BEFORE MY FIRSTLAYOFF!!..UNACCEPTABLE!!

Slow start but pick up the pace very quickly, I learned many things relating concrete, medians, how to use certain hand tools, how to use equipment of all sizes. I never had any problems with management. You need to be able to laugh at yourself otherwise it will be draining for you. The hardest part of the job was just learning many new things all at once. The most enjoyable part is once when you don't have to learn anything anymore because you already know.
Pros
Sometimes you'd get a free lunch
Cons
if something goes wrong you could be there for hours on end.

good flow with buy in from the top down. employee cooperation is good. Experienced crew and understanding of safety is a big help. safety meeting every morning and then review of flra cards throughout the day as i assisted workers in ensuring the proper information is present.

The people I worked with at Graham, from co-workers to senior management, were usually reasonable, competent and hard-working. The work is physical, and it varies from moderately paced to fast paced and stressful. There are a few people with "attitudes" and management is sometimes too lenient with trouble makers and slackers. The pay is usually fair and my overall experience was positive.

Pros: Great group of employees, normal 8 hour work day, fair pay.

Cons: layoffs constantly, just a number to them, management is terrible, no overtime, patch up work, fix small affordable issues and then send units out jsut to have them return a week later and get in trouble. Their own sites dint want to rent their equipment


All in all if you want a company where your opinion and hard work is valued this is jot thenplace 1 year, 2 years, 10 years they will let you go without a second thought or reason
