I submitted an application, let them know I was a veteran, and within a week had a phone call back. I was hired on as a helper for a job at ExxonMobil in Baton Rouge. What do you like best about your civilian job? Learning something new every day about the industrial construction field.
Learning the essentials for take-offs and how to correctly fit pipe with the inside of the pipe instead of the outside.Are there many other veterans in the construction field? There are more veterans in Performance than I have seen in any other company. Every job I’ve been on with Performance I’ve met old veterans, new veterans, and people who are in the reserves.
