Applying & Interviewing
Can I apply for more than one job?
Absolutely! As long as your skillset matches the job requirements, by all means, apply! We’ll talk with you about the differences in each role and gauge which would be the best fit.
What happens after I submit my application?
Each application is reviewed within a couple days and candidates that most closely fit the role are forwarded to management. Once management narrows their top picks, candidates are contacted for a phone interview to learn more. From there, those still in the running will be invited to either a phone or an in-person interview at one of our three office locations. If selected as the final candidate, an offer will be extended. The entire process usually takes anywhere from 1-2 weeks.
What qualifications and skills do you look for in potential candidates?
We look for candidates first and foremost with relevant educational backgrounds and/or experience in their field. We do find strong communication, problem solving, and teamwork skills are huge pluses relevant to nearly all our positions. And as always, our top candidates tend to embody our core values of dedication, teamwork, valuing reputation and doing the right thing.
I want to work for Comstock Construction but there's not a position open for my skillset. What should I do?
If you don’t see your ideal position, apply under our ‘General Interest’ application. We keep those handy and review for best fit when a new opening becomes available. As a tip – almost all our field positions become available spring through fall during our busy season. So be sure to check back during that time!
How should I prepare for my interview?
The first phone interview is pretty casual. We’ll ask you to go through your resume and experience in a little more detail and why you’re looking for a new role. The questions we ask are very task-based. For in-person interviews, we typically have you meet with your future manager and our recruiter. They’ll ask you to talk a little bit about your work background, your passions, and what makes you a good candidate for the role. We recommend brushing up on your background experience, skillset, and some relevant stories to go along with it. We especially look for folks who will fit our core values of being dedicated, a team player, valuing reputation, and a person who does the right thing.
Pay & Benefits
What is your pay schedule?
Everyone at Comstock Construction is paid weekly! We’ve found this is the most preferred method by our employees.
When do benefits start?
Benefits start the first of the month following 60-days of employment.
Am I required to travel?
Certain projects require field employees to be away from home during the week but are almost always home on the weekends. Most will head out of town on a Sunday night or Monday morning, depending on the distance, and then come back Thursday or Friday. Travel for most office positions is minimal but we do have folks frequently going back and forth during the week between our offices in Fargo, Wahpeton, and Fergus Falls.
What does a typical work week look like?
For field employees that are traveling to a jobsite out of town, they usually leave on a Sunday night or Monday morning, depending on the job distance, and come back on Thursday or Friday. This is based on the scope of work required for each job. Office staff generally work in the office Monday-Thursdays from 8am-5pm, and Fridays 8am-3pm. We do our best to offer flexibility where needed so you can make it to non-work activities like doctor’s appointments, kids’ activities, and other life events that are important to you.
What is the onboarding process for new employees?
Our onboarding process is simple and easy. First, we require a pre-employment drug screen. Next is standard paperwork and an overview of the company history, procedures, and policies. We also require safety training before arriving at any jobsite, for field and office personnel. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be distributed once all safety training has been completed and approved by our Safety Manager. Finally, job-specific training is provided by your supervisor. Then you’re off and running!
What does a typical career path look like at Comstock Construction?
No two people are alike, so we tailor our approach at the individual level. We’ve had people hired under one division but had a passion for another, so we helped them make the switch. We’ve witnessed employees grow with the company from college students working part time in the field to project managers, and then onto leadership positions. We’ve had people who don’t want to move into management and just want to continue developing their skills and we’ve helped them specialize in the trade they love most. Everyone is different and that’s exciting!
