    Great Learning Experience

    Construction Intern (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsWorked with a lot of experienced people. Worked on I-95 and was able to perform inspection on multiple projects such as demolition, excavation, concrete work, SOE wall construction, etc. Good amount of overtime and travel. Very good resume builder.

    ConsThe travel. I didn't mind it much because you were really only driving on the job site, but my car was on it's last leg so all the extra mileage didn't help.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
