Hazen and Sawyer – Why Work For Us?


undefined

Since 1951, Hazen and Sawyer has focused on two critical activities – helping our clients provide safe drinking water to their customers, and controlling water pollution and its effects on the environment.

Our focus brings us exceptional challenges – such as the largest drinking water UV disinfection installation in the world, upgrade of major wastewater treatment plants to reduce nutrient discharges to sensitive receiving waters, and recharging vital drinking water aquifers with highly-treated wastewater effluent, renewing a valuable resource.

Our focus also makes us home to many of the world’s most knowledgeable and experienced environmental engineers and scientists, each seeking a challenging and rewarding career while making an important contribution to the communities in which we work.

Our commitment to our clients is absolute. Our expert process groups contribute to the latest research and determine how to apply the most effective and efficient technologies to engineer solutions to your challenges. Your goals are our goals, and we offer the insight and experience needed to achieve and exceed them.

If you have a water engineering challenge, Hazen and Sawyer has your solution.

Our Vision

“…to be a successful, technically-focused environmental engineering firm specializing in the water environment, meeting the needs and exceeding the expectations of our clients and staff.”

Our Core Values

We endeavor to…

Perceive the Firm as more than just a business, and focus instead on the professional and technical aspects of our work.

Maintain the highest standards of integrity, to build trust with our clients and staff and protect our reputation.

Stay the course in terms of our core practice areas of water and wastewater, and broaden our services within these core practice areas, incorporating the latest technologies and sustainable solutions to meet our clients’ needs.

Keep bureaucracy to a minimum, to encourage creativity and give staff a sense of contribution and personal responsibility for the quality of our work and the satisfaction of our clients.

As environmental engineers and scientists, we have a deep respect for public health, ecology, and the quality of life of our neighbors, both locally and around the globe. As such, we strive to provide our clients with the best, most responsible work possible: work that ensures clean, safe drinking water; sensible wastewater management; durable, sustainable infrastructure; energy- and resource-efficient facilities – the foundation for a prosperous world.

Beyond our work for our clients, we also participate in a wide range of activities that advance the science of water engineering and help improve living conditions in communities around the world. Whether with Engineers Without Borders or Water for People, or for any number of prominent research foundations, the opportunities to learn and grow while you contribute and achieve are plentiful and span the globe.

Our project teams typically include technical staff with a wide variety of expertise – fertile ground for rewarding idea-sharing. Less experienced staff tend to contribute to a number of projects, giving them the opportunity to learn, gather technical expertise, and experience a variety of challenges. More experienced staff tend to bear greater responsibility for fewer projects, displaying project leadership and deepening their level of expertise.

Our continued participation in the high school mentoring programs and STEM fairs gives our staff the opportunity to inspire and educate future engineers. Our talented and diverse staff includes a wide spectrum of engineering and scientific disciplines, along with experts in the business-related aspects of utility management. You may also be interested in working in other areas of our firm, such as Design/Drafting, Marketing, Graphics, Accounting, Information Technology, Human Resources, and other administrative roles.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hazen and Sawyer (Columbus, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted over the phone, and told about the company and the position that I had applied for. During this, I scheduled an interview, which ended up being three separate interviews with a different employee for each. The total interview time was around two hours, and was very informal. I heard back three or four weeks later.
