When applying to work at Pinkard, a pre-screened, qualified applicant’s first interview is an informal visit with one of our owners, in which both parties enjoy a “get-to-know-you” session without the pressure of discussing the position or professional responsibilities. During this first visit, both Pinkard and the applicant consider general topics such as our client-first culture, integrity, work ethic, and pride in construction, as well as things like having fun and comradery.
This relaxed first visit allows applicants to get comfortable with Pinkard before discussing professional responsibilities, and affords Pinkard a better feel for the many ways these qualified applicants can grow within our corporate culture.
Career development is a big focus at Pinkard. We encourage our people to continue their educations in the classroom as well as on the job. This dedication to our employees and their professional development has translated into one of the most stable working environments in our industry. Our employee tenure averages 10+ years, and we have a high level of job satisfaction.
We prefer to develop and grow from within to ensure that all our leaders and decision makers share our dedication to excellence and client-first service. If you’d like to learn more about becoming a part of the Pinkard Team, please visit our careers section.
This culture is integral to our organization, so much so that in April 2017, when we surveyed our employees for words that suggest Pinkard's culture to them, the two most popular suggestions were "family" and "integrity." Read more about it here.
