Employee Testimonial

Milburn is just an awesome company to work for. There’s always something new to experience. My brother started working here before I did — he loved it and had good things to say about it, and then they brought me on. It feels like a very family-oriented company. James really does care about his workers. Milburn is all about doing things right. There’s never any cutting corners, and safety is the number-one priority here.

Ricardo Ramirez, Laborer

Milburn has a more modern point-of-view, as opposed to the old-school mentality that so many companies in this industry have. They’re not opposed to new ideas for safety, which is a big deal to me. When I worked for other companies, they put people in such narrow roles. There is very little room for growth. Milburn has a different mentality, which is similar to my own mentality. If somebody doesn’t know how to do something, we should teach them.

Eliasar Rosales, Foreman

Milburn has a family-oriented feel to it also. Everything just clicks here. There’s really good teamwork on all levels of the company. There’s no one out for themselves here. Nobody acts like they’re a superstar. Part of that is due to the organization. This is a much more organized company than I’ve ever worked for, and there’s great leadership from the top down. It’s hard for me to explain how much better Milburn is than the previous company I worked for.
