Why Weeks

  • We Make a Difference

    Our work impacts people’s lives in countless ways – from environmental protection, to global and domestic infrastructure, to supporting international trade and our economy – all resulting in protecting and maintaining our way of life. In order to make a difference, we embrace challenges, pull together as a team, and use our deep expertise and resources to accomplish things we previously thought impossible. We also complete our work with the highest degree of care and protection for our planet. “When you are doing something that is really impactful to the country, to the people, to the economy, it makes you feel good about your job,” said Alberto Marvarez, Staff Engineer, when asked about what working at Weeks means to him.

  • We Empower People

    Our people have the opportunity to grow their careers in a nurturing environment that rewards hard work and embracing challenges. Individuals have transitioned from the field to management, from laborers to operations, and across businesses as well. Jason Marchioni explains his personal Weeks trajectory, “I started as a tugboat deckhand in 1996 and I worked my way up to become a captain on a vessel. I worked on boats for about seven to eight years, and then I made a transition into the field. Now I'm a Vice President with Weeks Marine and the General Manager of our subsidiary, North American Aggregates.”

  • Diverse Expertise & Settings

    No two projects are the same and this provides a challenging, exciting environment that is ripe for innovation and continuous improvement. At Weeks, you are exposed to a diverse group of people and types of work, spanning from those driving tugboats and steering cranes, working from our new state-of-the-art Cranford, NJ headquarters, or manning our many yards. Weeks has a robust and growing presence in North and South America, and combined with our key subsidiaries, our offices and project locations span along the Eastern Seaboard and Gulf Coast, as well as in Canada and Hawaii.

  • Best-in-class Benefits

    Weeks Marine dedicates itself to employee satisfaction by offering competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental, and life-insurance plans, as well as retirement-savings plans. It’s a human environment where people that work at Weeks are respected in all facets of their life, not just as employees in the company – they are seen as people with families, and with valuable contributors within the organization and outside as well.

Kathryn Story

"I've gotten the opportunity to work with several of our dredges and crews in locations all over the Gulf and the East coast. I absolutely love the fact that no two projects are the same and that they each present their own challenges and opportunities to learn and grow in my role as a Project Engineer."

We Prioritize Safety

Our employees are a part of our family and we plan to see them home safe every day. At Weeks, safety isn’t just a goal. It’s a mindset that permeates every aspect of our work. From the office to the ocean, we look out for one another through our Weeks for LIIFE program. Weeks for LIIFE ensures an environment where employees work to uphold safety regulations and the highest level of safety awareness. Our safety policies also result in recognition.
