Finishers/Laborer (Concrete Construction)

Location: Charlotte, NC
Date Posted: 06-28-2016
Fessler & Bowman, Inc. is a growth-focused concrete and excavation contractor based in Flushing, Michigan. With a 50+ year history of quality, safety, and profitability, the Company has relied on its strong leadership team and core principals.  In order to staff the projects that it has on the books for 2017, the Company is adding to its field craft (all trades) workers.
The Position
The position involves anything and everything related to heavy concrete, finishing concrete, earthwork, and site utilities. From unloading and moving construction materials to building forms and working on large concrete pours, laborers are the backbone of the Company.  The job is physical (which you already know if you are applying for this position!) and provides the reward of actually building something and seeing the progress throughout the project.
While the Company has built a backlog of work in its core regions, employees that are willing to travel to project sites have the best opportunity of staying busy year round and earning the most money. The Company pays a solid per diem for all travel in excess of 120 miles from the home office location.

Desired Experience, Skills, and Abilities
  • At least 2 years in construction labor positions, preferably working for a heavy concrete or dirt contractor.
  • Willingness to learn and follow all safety policies and requirements.
  • Ability to work hard all day, in all weather conditions, and deal with stressful situations.
  • Must be able to lift up to 75 pounds repeatedly throughout the day.
  • This position requires climbing, kneeling, bending, and crawling often as well as the ability to work on ladders, platforms, and mechanical lifts.
  • Ability to understand English.
  • Valid Drivers License.
Compensation, Benefits, and Structure
This position is full-time, with a strong likelihood for year-round work if willing to travel. The Company pays top hourly rates, provides a benefits package (employer paid!). Additionally, Fessler & Bowman is focused on safety and quality and has built a good Company culture around the team that supports this commitment.  
The Recruitment Process
The recruitment process will include a phone screen, in-person meeting, and a pre-employment background check and drug test.
Fessler & Bowman is an Equal Opportunity Employer!
