Cool to be Blue “Work and Learn” Program
Think of our Work and Learn program as a training platform designed to develop our employees into a skilled trade of their choice. Whether you join Conco as a laborer with no commercial construction experience right out of high school or mid-career, we’re the main track. Because we’re a self-performing contractor we offer an unmatched opportunity to gain hands-on experience in dirtwork, concrete, masonry, steel, framing and carpentry.
For the first 90 days of employment we get to know our new laborer and you get to know Conco. This is a great testing ground as you explore the field of commercial construction to determine whether it interests you and what opportunities are best aligned with your desired career path.
After 90 days, laborers who exemplify our Conconian values and show aptitude and interest for skilled crafts will begin to experience targeted shadowing and mentoring. When school makes sense along with on-the-job training for a laborer’s trajectory, we have developed tradeschool partnerships with many institutions, including WSU Tech.
Our Work and Learn program is not a one-size-fits-all opportunity. It’s a custom experience designed to build outstanding craftsmen and careers that last.
