At Shimmick, you will be given the opportunity to learn in both the field and the office. A thorough knowledge of both is vital to success. Throughout your career with Shimmick, you will participate in several specialty classes and management training seminars.
During your first years at Shimmick, a recent college graduate can participate in the following training from our own in-house experts:
Shimmick has a comprehensive, in-house training program for our new and future leaders, which sets them up to effectively manage projects and people. Taught by both our own and outside leaders, the 3-day course includes a leading personality assessment, evaluating work, management, and communication style; multiple sessions on the nuts and bolts of running a successful project; training on the legal ins and outs related to the field; and information geared towards continuously improving the soft skills associated with successfully managing a team.
We also support outside training when an employee’s development goals cannot be met through our internal training program. This has included AGC and FMI management courses as well as partial tuition reimbursement for those wishing to pursue degrees.
Shimmick hires the best of the best, who then turn around and train their co-workers to be even better. There’s nothing better than a training course taught by a colleague that you respect who is an expert. The most valuable part of each class is that examples from Shimmick jobs are used to illustrate the subject. Many are from jobs that I have seen or even worked on. Every time I attend a training course, I am always amazed at the contribution that each of my colleagues makes to the course
