If you are passionate about making a difference in this world and driven to learn and innovate, then Grade Tech may be the place for you!

At Grade Tech, we understand that you want more from work than just a paycheck –you want to make a difference in this world…you want to have a positive impact…you want to contribute your ideas, innovate and improve the way things are done. Maybe you want to be the boss and make the rules. You can find all of that and more at Grade Tech.

According to a Harris Poll conducted for Express Employment Professionals (The Harris Poll), 86% of blue-collar workers are satisfied with their jobs. Furthermore, 91% of trade workers are proud of the work they do and 80% say their jobs provide a good living.

As it is with any life decision, you need to weigh the Pros and Cons to determine whether the payoff is worth the effort. Considering a career with Grade Tech is no different – you should know the benefits and requirements to determine if we’re a good fit for you. Here are a few things to consider: 

The Benefits

Your Ideas Are Welcome

We are always looking for innovators with new perspectives on how to get things done more efficiently and effectively. Every member of our team is encouraged to share ideas freely in order to come up with the best solutions to the issues we encounter on the job.

Have an idea to improve our construction technique or operate our equipment more effectively? Can we implement a new technique or new technology to cut time or costs? We work closely as a team and welcome new and better ways to do things. We want to hear your ideas!


You Can Make Your Mark On The World

If you desire to make a lasting impact on the world, then you are in the right place! As part of the Grade Tech team, you will be improving our nation’s power infrastructure, building the future of our country. Think of it as powering our nation, providing the foundation for everything. Looking for purpose and meaning? You’ll be building the infrastructure that provides light to you and everyone you know. In other words, you’ll be supporting the way of life for your friends and family and for people across our great country.


You Can Be Whatever You Want to Be – The Sky Is The Limit

Do you have dreams of running your own business and being your own boss one day? What many young, enterprising people fail to realize is that the trades can be a great place to fulfill one’s entrepreneurial dreams. At Grade Tech, you will learn the ins and outs of the industry from experienced tradesmen – the best in the business! You’ll develop the skills needed to eventually move on to bigger things – like owning your own civil construction company. What better place to learn the ropes?

It all starts by asking questions and learning from the ground up. When you bring the right attitude, we’ll teach you everything you need to know. You will get hands-on experience. You will learn the trades inside and out, and build relationships that can lead you to where you want to go – whether that be striking out on your own or building a lifelong career with a company that treats you well and listens to your ideas. The only limits are the ones you put on yourself!

You’ll Have Time To Do The Things You Love

Work isn’t everything, right? You want time for friends, family and all of the things you love to do. We understand your desire for balance and we prioritize time off. You’ll have your paid time off, weekends and evenings free for everything you want to do.


We Support the Causes That Are Important to You

The spirit of giving back and helping others is alive and well at Grade Tech. We believe in supporting the charitable causes that are important to our teammates. Once you are here for three years, we will donate $1,000 per year on your behalf to the charity of your choice. We also support those in need in our local community by donating and volunteering – as a team – several times a year. There is nothing more important than reaching out and helping others, and you will play an integral role in helping the less fortunate in our region.


You’ll Be A Part of A Tight-Knit Group

Two factors in making work meaningful and enjoyable are the people you work with and the work environment. We are like a family – we take care of each other and look out for our own. The foremen and the owners will never ask you to do something they wouldn’t do themselves. We all work side-by-side and learn from each other. We believe in culture of communication, transparency and respect.



The Cons

Every job has them – there’s no getting around them. Here are a couple of hurdles you’ll face:

It’ll Take Some Time To Get Where You’re Going

We know you want to jump right in and move quickly, and we appreciate that passion and excitement! But this is no “instant gratification” job – it will take several years to learn the trade. Rest assured, however, that it will be worth it. The more you invest in the process, the more you will get out of it. We’ll work with you to help you develop your expertise. When you take the time to build your knowledge and do the job right, you can take pride in the work you’re doing.


This Is A Hands-On, Be Here Every Day Type of Job

Your presence and full attention is required each and every day of the week, but if you stick with it and dedicate yourself to learning and giving it your all every day, you’ll be able to write your own ticket! You’ll have the skills that are in high demand – and in very low supply – in this industry. You can use that how you want – to move on to ownership (and the freedom that comes with it once you’re established) or to climb the ladder to higher roles and higher pay. You can determine your future, but you have to put in the time.
