Valmont Industries began in 1946 when our founder, Robert B. Daugherty combined his $5,000 savings with the wholehearted belief business could and should be done better.

We grow our businesses by leveraging our existing products, markets and processes. We recognize that our growth will only create shareholder value if, at the same time, we exceed our cost of capital.

    I have been working at Valmont Industries

    Pros

    I have been here over 1 1/2 years in an admin position at a branch office building and designing electrical structures. It's been a great job. While it has gotten stressful at times due to increases in work load while growing, the people I work with are extremely helpful and everyone seems to have an open door for questions or just to discuss. The work is taken seriously and it is very rewarding to see the finished product as you drive down the road. The job is stable since people will always need electricity and there is opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    We are growing- at least at my branch and often there is a lot of work to be done. This is wonderful because it means you are always busy, but it also gets to be a bit much at times. Not a deal breaker by any means in my opinion, but it is something to be aware of. It also means that other people can get a bit stressed and snappy, but I think most people here try not to share that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
