Demand is High for Experienced Pipefitters and Equipment Operators

Haskell is hiring tradespeople to support its fast-growing Water/Wastewater Business. It's an excellent chance to join a strong team and build a career.


Haskell’s Permanent Craft Employee (PCE) program gives it the ability to self-perform trades as an integral part of the speed and quality of its work. Now, the rapid expansion of its Water/Wastewater Market has created the need to self-perform for additional scopes of work.

In addition to equipment operators capable of high-end excavation, Haskell is looking for pipefitters to mentor and be mentored across a variety of work.

“Now, with a half-billion dollars' worth of wastewater treatment work, and the fact that we’re winning more work on the mechanical side, we’re looking for, I almost call them plumbers,” said Tim Mosley, Haskell’s Senior Manager of Field Personnel. “So, now we’re looking for that kind of talent, people who are more experienced with that type of work and have an understanding of how that all goes together.”

Haskell employs more than 200 qualified tradesmen. These PCEs are highly skilled craftsmen who can take on tasks themselves or educate and lead locally contracted workers. Self-performing work allows our teams more flexibility, ensures the highest level of safety and quality of work, shortens the project lifecycle, controls costs and allows us to rely on subcontractors in a supplemental manner for highly specialized tasks.

Just as Haskell’s Field Technical Training team has cross-trained carpenters in rigging and piping installation, new team members can expect to learn new skills to improve their careers and earning power. Haskell is ranked No. 1 in Training Magazine’s annual APEX Awards rankings, an exclusive list of the leading training organizations worldwide.

“We're bringing those guys on and giving them skills so that they’re not just able to work in one specific trade,” Mosley said. “That way we’re able to them working continuously. Once the underground work is finished, we can move their skill sets into things above ground doing mechanical pipe work or setting equipment. They can do things that equipment operators would do, level-plumbing-square, bolting stuff together.

“When we started getting into water facilities, I had a superintendent who called them multitaskers. He said, ‘We're not just one specific trade out here. We're multitaskers. Today we're running an underground pipe. Tomorrow we're doing pipefitting, and three weeks from now we could be either doing miscellaneous metals and installing handrails and stairs and slide gates and all the equipment, or they may be doing button-up concrete work.”

In addition to providing a highly collaborative and fast-paced environment, Haskell operates with the direction of six strategic pillars, the first of which is to “Provide Team Members the BEST Job of Their Lives.” It offers a robust benefits package that includes a 401k match and an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), which creates stock ownership for every full-time team member.

“The benefit package we offer is the same as we offer to the CEO of the company,” Mosley said. “We're very competitive in terms of wages. For the traveling guys, we make sure they get home to see their families. And it’s a team environment.

“We're not just hiring for one job. We're hiring for the long term. We're looking for employees who are committed and want to stay with the company and build a career. Just because you’re hired in a position doesn't mean you stay in that position. We have all sorts of opportunities for training and advancement.”
