    Why Preconstruction Meetings Are Crucial > Contech Engineered Solutions

    The Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw, wrote "The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place". Whether you are involved with the design, installation or the manufacture of pipe materials, the key ingredient to a successful project is communication. Poor communication, or worse, no communication, can be a project's downfall.

    I have been working at Contech Engineered Solutions full-time


    Contech management cares about their employees, Don't feel like they get much support from their parent company, Quickrete. Overall a good company and you can learn a lot. They have great group of talented driven employees.


    Parent company "Quikrete" needs to learn to trust their lower level managers. They are the ones that make this company successful. They need to put some money back into the company and not beat them up over every dime. Trust s a two way street. Benefit package need some serious help the costs to the employee's are way to high and the coverage is way to low.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your lower level managers, They work tireless hours to make this a successful Company.

    Associate Technical Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Contech Engineered Solutions in October 2017.


    First and second interview lasted about 30 minutes to 1 hr. First interview was a phone interview with HR recruiter. Then about two weeks later had another phone interview with sales regional manager. Was told the next day that I moved on to the third interview. The third interview is on site and takes about 5 hours. I declined the visit due to lack of communication on their end. Weeks would go by with no contact about traveling on site. Was expected to make plans within a 3 day window to make it to Cincinnati. They were however going to pay for travel
