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.

Working at Jacobs was an opportunity given to me by my dad where I was able to learn skills that will stay with me for life. I always enjoyed going into work each day and never wanted to leave early. I enjoyed working with my hands and always felt accomplished at the end of the day.
