Payments will occur on the first paycheck following your post-graduation three month, six month, one year and two year anniversaries.  Payments are contingent that you have met the criteria outlined – good attendance, positive reviews, and a good work ethic.  As outlined above, if you join our team for the summers between your sophomore/junior or junior/senior year, you will receive an additional $500 at one year. 


What if I don’t have any experience? 


Experience is not necessary, but a desire to learn and a good work ethic certainly is!  We want students who are looking to start a career with a leader in the local construction market.  If you have the desire and work ethic, we will give you everything else you need to start a long rewarding career.
