Management has no idea how to treat or manage employees.Do not take a position if you are a woman. You are treated as lower class citizens. Devout Dutch Mennonites. Women are lower class.Management screams at you and constantly sets you up for failure. The back stabbing is unreal. Never bring up concerns to management or you will be fired without reason.
The management is well delegated and you know what your task is. This company has a very personal feel and you will get to know many of the people who work here.

Heavy Physical Work
As a wetcast general laborer you start the day stripping the wood off of the previous days poured panels and lift them off the bed to start setting up wooden forms for that days pour. You are required to install chamfer and reveal strips then oil the sides of the form and bottom of the bed. a rebar cage is then lifted into the form and various inserts and/or plates are installed. after half the bed is set up you can start pouring. some workers are required to stay and trowel the concrete while the rest of the crew cleans up. The hours can be long when production is busy and really short at other times it didn't seem steady at all. the wages for a concrete related company are not competitive with other companies in the area. I liked most of the people I worked with and the part I enjoyed most about this job was stripping panels.
hot in the summer and very long hours at times(13+)
As a Wet-Cast Laborer, we built all concrete columns, beams, and walls in house. We built up the forms with wood; to get the exact measurement given. Then rebar was added, to give strength. "Lift Clutch's" were then installed so the panel could be lifted and placed onto the truck. Concrete is poured into the panel and then shook into place. Ensuring no air bubbles or corners are left without concrete. After we used a "Screed" board to level and smooth out the surface. The panels are then given 12-16 hours to cure and harden. While I worked there I learned a great deal of safety, heavy machinery, teamwork, and hand held tool skills. I operated a large front-end loader, overhead crane and fork trucks of various sizes. The hardest part of the job would be the early start time and long days; but you were well rewarded. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the amount of skills I learned and the crew I worked with.
Great benefits, available over time
A typical day starts at 5:00 or 6:00 depending on which department you are in . I myself start at 5:00 ,which is too early for my liking . I have learned how to operate machinery such as forklifts, gantry cranes, shunt trucks, and overhead cranes.The hardest part of the job is the physical exertion required to complete the task but the most enjoyable aspect would be the friendly people you get to work with.
decent wages, great people
early start and long days
- Decent working hours - Learned alot about the precast construction industry and helped me read building plans and construction drawings more easily.\ - Very tightly knit, everyone knows everyone and are always friendly - Hardest part of the job was the commute. - Most enjoyable part was easy to work with co-workers and everyone always being in a good mood or willing to help.
Stubbe’s Precast is growing and dynamically developing company that provides building solutions using concrete for commercial, industrial, residential and agricultural structures.
I worked as a Quality Control Technician at Stubbe's Precast. I have learned a lot during my four months of co-op. I get to work in my field and practice what I studied. Great work environment and friendly management. The only thing I didn't enjoy much about working there is that I had morning shifts from 4:00 am and I had to drive an hour to get to work.
