    Team Work

    Construction Engineer (Former Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsMy best experiences a Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company always came when team work was involved.

    ConsI was unfortunate when there was no work available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep bidding on new work. Keep your skilled workers working.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsManagement is always on the lookout for great ideas and eager to listen to employees. HDCC gets a lot of the biggest and coolest construction projects in the state.

    ConsEasy to get stuck in a routine if you let it happen... this is true of every construction company, though.

    The 800 lb Gorilla of Construction on the Islands

    Project Superintendent (Current Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsIncredible history on the Islands. Respected by all locals and Subcontractors for the most part.

    ConsA dinosaur in a lot of ways. Also poor communication skills. Partly culture, partly just bad habits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your good people more. Lose the folks who bruise your reputation with the Owners and the Subs. A GC is nothing without their Subs trust.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great image...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsGood training opportunities.
    Lots of internal noise and excitement about the use of BIM technologies.
    For a big company, it sometimes has a family feel.

    ConsThey ask a lot in return for compensation.
    Don't expect a raise.
    Nothing is done to motivate workers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry and retain talent!
    Provide annual raises to at least keep up with inflation.
    Listen to and provide support to the younger generation of employees - They are your future.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A great construction company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsWorking for Hawaiian Dredging allowed me to support my family and live in the beautiful state of Hawaii. It has been a great company so far!

    ConsManagement and communication within has sometimes been stifled. Free overtime has sometimes been overbearing. Other than that, it has been great.
