CCC’s apprenticeship-like environment offers clear steps for advancement. Our training program puts workers on a fast track to a family wage. Consider that in just four years, workers can double their salaries, from $30,000 per year to $60,000. That’s good money. Over the years, we’ve developed work guidelines that we teach to all new recruits. We also introduce new concrete laborers to the technology we’re using, training them to use the tools of the trade. Once they’re up to speed, we go into detail on labor guidelines, certifications and other insider knowledge. The ones who pay attention — the ones who put in the time and effort to learn the trade — move up quickly.

Check us out; we have a place for you.

We work hard on team culture, from top to bottom. We say that our team is our family, and we mean it. At Custom Concrete Contracting, our main philosophy is person-focused. We aim to support our employees, treating them like family while training them to succeed as individuals and as concrete installers and finishers.
