Construct a Career: 5 Reasons to Work at Mears

Published on Back To Index

Switching on the lights. Joining a Zoom meeting. Using a gas stove to cook dinner. We do these things every day, but have you ever thought about how they’re possible?

With electric, natural gas and broadband infrastructure needs on the rise, the search for skilled people is growing day by day. As an industry-leading energy infrastructure solutions provider, Mears is always looking for driven people to join our team. Not convinced? Here’s just five reasons why you should think about constructing a career with us.

  1. Safety is our highest priority. Safety is ingrained in our culture to make sure our employees are safe both on the job and at home. To ensure this, we provide extensive training to our employees which includes access to Quanta’s Advanced Training Center at Lazy Q Ranch, a 2,300-acre converted ranch that provides hands-on instruction from master trainers in a controlled environment. By constantly innovating with the latest research and technology, we’re able to deliver the highest level of training across the industries we serve.
  2. Our people mean everything. Starting in 1970 as a small family-owned business in the town of Rosebush, MI, we realized early on that building relationships would be crucial to our success. Over the last 50+ years Mears has grown as a company, but we still recognize that we owe it all to our people.  Our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion ensures that we cultivate talent diverse in thought, culture, background and perspective. “We’re an employee-led company,” says Trent Edwards, executive vice president. “When we say ‘people-first,’ it means we’re committed to opening doors for our employees, giving them support and resources to reach their fullest potential. These are the same opportunities that I was given when I was right out of school. It’s what I believe in and lead by.”
  3. We’re military friendly. Mears is proud to be recognized as a Military Friendly Employer for 2022. We strive to strengthen the communities we serve by hiring, educating, and retaining our exceptional service men and women and their families. Our DOD Skillbridge Program and Hiring Our Heroes Fellowship Program provide professional and hands-on training to help veterans transition to meaningful civilian careers. Our newest partnership with the U.S. Army’s PaYS Program is future-focused and allows new service members to make a plan years before they begin their transition to civilian life.
  4. We invest in our people by offering growth opportunities. Creating a career path for yourself is easy with Mears. Our training programs teach new skills and pathways for career advancement for those ready for the next level in their career. We offer training opportunities such as our Foreman Program, Stepping Up to Supervision, CAT Leadership and Leadership Academy to help our employees be effective leaders. Additionally, we offer competitive pay, health insurance and retirement program benefits. By investing in our workforce, we benefit our employees, our customers, and the overall industry.

  5. We’re involved in the communities we live and work. Being active in our communities allows us to give back in meaningful ways not only by providing promising careers, but also by community service. As a part of the Quanta family, Mears contributes to numerous educational, community development and health/wellness organizations such as the Houston Food Bank, Austin Habitat for Humanity, Phoenix Rescue Mission, and various donation drives across the country. In 2021, our Rosebush and Mt. Pleasant offices teamed up to adopt 22 families in their community from 11 different schools and were able to donate gifts, non-perishable food items and over $5,000 to help families in need. When you join Mears, you can pride yourself on being a part of a company that recognizes the importance of being a good community partner.
