Careers at Abernethy

Build the life you want without working your life away

We learned a lot of our values from the old school generation of builders—values like hard work, honesty, and integrity in even the smallest task. We also learned from their sacrifices by watching those who came before us miss out on life’s pleasures in order to provide for their families.

Our mission at Abernethy is to create opportunities for people to build the lives they want without sacrificing what’s most important to them. Because a great career does more than make ends meet, it adds meaning to how we live our lives.

Our culture is built on family

At Abernethy, treating each other “like family” isn’t just an expression. As a third generation family-owned business, we cultivate a work environment in which every member of our team is equally valued and looked out for—from the seasoned veteran nearing retirement to the entry-level employee just starting out.

Our company culture is rooted in respect and support of one another as we grow in our careers. We emphasize training and development to become the best versions of ourselves.

“Comencé como operador de screed y me ascendieron a líder del grupo. Aprendiendo y haciendo las cosas bien, me dieron la oportunidad de seguir creciendo en la empresa. Finalmente, me nombraron jefe de grupo. Estoy agradecido con mis superiores y al personal de Abernethy por confiar en mí para ser parte de la familia."

“My experience here has been one of hard work, learning, (even at my age), growth and loyalty. I have always felt that whatever decision I have made I’ve had the ownership's support 100%, and in this business that is hard to come by. I’m looking forward to the Abernethy merger and being a part of this team for many years to come.”

David J. Johnson
Senior Project Manager

“Starting over after 19 years is the scariest thing in the world to do. Taking chances that you can learn something entirely new and be successful is exactly what I did. Now three years later, I absolutely love working at Abernethy. I have more than just a job with co-workers, I have a family!”
