“The best part of Barriere has to be the working atmosphere. I worked on a project with Barriere located within my home town and was able to work alongside the Management Team. With this Management Team, I was able to see how the project was run whether it was the smallest or largest detail it was very interesting and informative to see. I was able to see all aspects of the company and meet many different people. ”

“Interning with Barriere during the summer of 2019 was my first safety internship. Being from Murray, Kentucky, my family and I were very nervous about everything that comes with moving across the country. People at Barriere made sure I was safe, comfortable, and got my times worth out of moving for the summer. My summer was packed with field experience, training, and educational steps towards improving my future career in safety.
Barriere is very serious about their safety being a core value. Many companies will say this and not implement safety programs towards achieving a safety culture. I was able to see how Barriere has tailored their safety programs for their employees. They provided instruction in a classroom setting and then applied that knowledge to the field.
They encourage questions and for employees to share their opinions. I definitely learned a lot of applicable knowledge to bring back to Murray State.
