Many places in Whatcom County are hiring right now — especially in the trades, which is seeing a resurgence of interest. Custom Concrete, which has years of experience as a top concrete contractor in Bellingham, is among them. What sets us apart? A few things:

Fulfilling, family wage careers. Among the many benefits of working at CCC:

  • A generous starting wage — with the opportunity to quickly earn even more, based on your initiative and experience.
  • Access to medical and dental insurance coverage for qualified team members, with CCC paying 75% of the premiums.
  • Paid holidays, paid sick leave, 401(k) matching, financial wellness planning and, coming in 2023, vacation pay.
  • Eligibility for the CCC apprenticeship program after one year of employment.
  • Ability to earn experience points and wage credits through CCC’s proprietary Level Up program.

On-the-job coaching. Doing the job right, the first time, means that team members must have the skills and know-how to do the job well. But we don’t expect that everyone who joins our crew has innate concrete skills. Rather, we work hard to teach our employees the skills they need. Continuing education and certifications set our company apart from others in town. We like it that way, because it’s our mission to provide a great experience as well as high-quality work when you hire us for your concrete needs. Employing skilled and coached people makes a difference in the quality of the project being built.

Challenging, stimulating work. Our founder, Dave Johnson, put it well when he said, “Sometimes, we forget the value of work in the trades. Anything that an architect or engineer designs must be built by a laborer. And some of the best architects and engineers, for that matter, are the ones with some trade experience, who know how things are done in the real world and what things are possible.”

Job security. Concrete is a lifelong trade. There will always be concrete work that needs to be done, and concrete construction skills transfer from state to state. You’ll be employable no matter where you live. However, we don’t want you going anywhere. CCC’s goal is to coach you well enough so you could leave but treat you well enough so you stay. Here at CCC, as part of our workforce development mission, employees can work up to a construction management career by advancing from laborer to flatwork finisher to foreman to site superintendent to estimator to project manager.

A great company culture. CCC’s core values focus on the quality of our work and the quality of our relationships: We get it done. We are responsible and make no excuses. We are always improving. We are good people and do the right thing. Plus, our leadership team strives for each team member to be healthy, wealthy and wise. After all, our team is our family. Safety guidelines that help keep you safe at work are followed; learning opportunities and coaching that can elevate your career and wages are offered.
