I've learned alot about my trade at Jacobs. They taught me how to be efficient in my trade and how to adapt to any environment. I stayed with the company for a while and learn important skills while there.
In general you are paid well but if you are not billable then you get laid off andusually with-out notice. They will tell you they have years of work and then one day shut it all down with out warning.
They recruit you you then lay you off.
Always something to do in the work place. Good communication with the fellows on the Job. Always Safety First. Jacobs is one of the better Jobs I've had in Construction. Good group of people to work with. I'm looking forward working for them again. Hope that they will grow and have more jobs.
Dedicate yourself to safety at all times. Work with confidence and teamwork. Share your work experience with all project team members and the client to complete all project work requirements to meet schedule and budjet requirements.
I loved going to work every day but some of the people high up did not care about the working man they just wonted more for their pocket. they had to many chiefs in charge a company like Jacobs don't care we are just a number.
