    I worked at Adolfson & Peterson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This will obviously heavily depend on your project team.

    - interesting projects

    - intelligent management team

    - decent pay

    - opportunities to get involved outside of work

    AP Gulf States is a great place to work. The leadership team does a great job of not only listening and understanding the needs and wants of the project teams, but also takes the time to visit sites and remain involved throughout the project.

    Again experiences vary based on the team you work with, but if you’re open and honest about your personality from day one, the mgmt team will be able to better place you in a team that fits you.

    Cons

    It’s construction, so be ready for some long hours. Depending on your project, weekend work will most likely be a reality. If you’re a PE or assistant super, the bad news is you’ll be the first to get signed up for weekend work.

    Also DFW is a big sprawling area, so you could be commuting long distances.

    Advice to Management

    Site visits by the mgmt team are key, everyday the team works hard to put together complex projects and most of the teams are proud to show their hard work off. I would be disappointed if the leadership never cared to view the jobs they oversee.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Adolfson & Peterson (Fort Collins, CO) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was relaxed. I had 2 people ask me questions. Make sure you have extra resumes just in case. Bring some water with you in case you need it.
