Tell us about your business/organization and what makes you stand out as an employer?
We are a custom log home construction company with current projects for local and overseas customers. When a new employee joins our company, they are joining our family. We take care of each other, on and off the jobsite. It makes for a really tight crew.
How many employees do you have?
Currently, we have 12 employees who work directly with the company as well as many subcontractors involved in various ways.
What do you look for in a new employee?
Experience is always an asset, however there are not a lot of log home builders floating around. To be successful at Summit one must be honest, reliable and hardworking. We will teach you the rest.
What advice would you give someone who wants to work for your organization?
Most of our employees have been here for years, so it is not for someone who wants to learn to build a log home over the summer. We want someone who is looking to make a career.
Do you anticipate hiring in the next 6 months? If so, for what types of positions?
Generally, those who start with us don’t have log home experience, so we would start them as labourers and develop them into builders. As for hiring, we hire based on the number of projects on the go. That said, we are really busy now.
What is the best way for someone to apply if they are interested in working for your business?
The best way is to send us a resume by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will review it. If we think it is a good fits we will call you in for an interview and a tour of the site.
