Great place to work

Featured review

Morton Buildings selected this as a representative review
The people i work with are hard working and always trying to get as much done as possible. I feel like I’m on a team. They take safety very seriously and make you feel like you’re important to the company!

Everyday is an experience, some good some bad but a few are great

What is the best part of working at the company?A lot of the people are great to work with. Working in building 1 is said to be the gravy train work but working in building 3/4 is the best. The yard is definitely the toughest spot to work, not only because it’s always out in the elements but if you don’t fit in with the clique the other yard workers WILL make it rough on you.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Working in the yard, it’s always a rat race and no one knows what is going on… they lost an entire building once and questioned where it was 3 months after it was loaded on a trailer, it was found assembled on the customer’s property where it was supposed to be What is the work environment and culture like at the company?It’s a very laid back atmosphere. Lunch is 40 minutes unless you work 9+ hour days scheduled then it’s 45 minutes. If you want to try to make friends with everyone just ask to join the normal lunch break corn hole game even if you ain’t good they’ll coach you and help you improve What is a typical day like for you at the company?A typical day in building 4 is a process. Pre trip your lift, check in with the saw operator for your pick lists, gather the boards on the list, stack the boards 4 high on the forks of the lift and then load it on the live deck, and repeat. If the live deck is full you’re doing great! Anything picked when the live deck is full will go to a staging area(the location will change based on free space)

Productive but too much personal drama

Ok place to work, not great management. Culture of backstabbing everyone to get the spot you want. Looking for excuses to get other people fired so a position opens in the area you want is encouraged.

Gret place to work hard

Hard work is rewarded. Your bosses want to see you do well and move up in the company. Safety is a number one priority for this company. Pay is good and plenty of overtime.

Something new every day

Construction side of Morton is very different from the office side.New challenges and customers to meet almost every day. If you love physical labor, the elements and "rough around the edges" fun work then this is the job for you. Foreman are extremely under paid for the work load and stress but everyone else on a crew is very competitively paid. Kinda flexible unapproved time off but don't abuse it, requested pto is almost immediately approved...bad weather pay is a HUGE benefit and the PPE/TOOL options are great.


Working outside, new places or on the road


Elements, push for hours worked, foreman pay.

Few Resources and Little Direction

My interview consisted of vague questions like, "Are you good at excel?" .... compared to what? I started and the first day I was told, "Xyz and I aren't good at training so, you'll need to figure it out"... gave me completed spreadsheets and told me to figure out how the previous person made them. There was little to no direction. I asked questions and receive responses like, "Send this to xyz, they'll take care of it". I want to know the whats and whys of what I'm doing, so I know what the data is supposed to look like, not just blindly create reports. I'm sure it's different/better in a different department. Just bad management, not a bad company to work for. Benefits and work/life balance is exceptional. People are mostly friendly and willing to help where they can.

It was alright at first

It was alright at first but some people definitely get favored over others. It’s not really based on showing up to work and working hard but friendships. The culture is very judgemental. If you liked high school and the “cliques” work at that Morton buildings.

Productive and understanding

Very understanding. Started the job and soon in learned of health issue and as it passes there working with me great company. But grueling work. Wouldn’t say overtime is worth it don’t really see it after taxes

Poor management and little room for advancement

The work is quite easy, and the production rate is exceptionally low- although every employee wears multiple hats (inventory clerk, fork truck driver, maintenance, material handler, quality control). The management is hardly ever around to answer any questions you may have, and most of the time is unaware of the situation. The company is more concerned about the cleanliness of the facility, than how it operates. Antiquated equipment and outdated processes make working here actually harder than it needs to be.


Easy work


Short breaks, poor management, overall it's a farce

Toxic Leadership

Not worth working here. The Gettysburg plant has one of the highest turnover rates in the country as far as Morton Buildings goes. Their leadership is toxic and will ride you until you break. Complaining to HR does nothing, because no one can touch their foreman (who are literally the root of the problem). I won't miss this place in a million years, good riddance.

Family atmosphere, room for advancement

Working for Morton has been a pleasure compared to other corporations. I feel valued as an individual, have a sense of purpose, and am kept informed of the direction that the company is moving in. The "employee owner" attitude is a real thing, and the general sense that one gets is that they are part of a large work family. Opportunities for advancement abound.The operations tempo is certainly not laid-back or stress-free, but performance pressure is both bearable, and help/encouragement is offered freely and often.In short, this is the place I'd like to retire from whenever in the future that comes. I'm not planning on going anywhere else.

Under apppreciated and under paid.

I was hired 8/9/1999 at the Conyers, GA office. It was a part time position, 35 hours per week. Gradually worked 40 hours per week, but no benefits/contributions. This went on for 4 years. I used my personal vehicle after 5:00 PM to take tools or mail to be dropped off. No extra pay or time compensation. Most of the salesmen and crew guys were great to work with.

Chain of command is awful.

Constant drama belittling, and shadiness between everyone. I had to leave before mental health went too far downhill. Wouldn’t recommend this location

Place to gain lifelong skills

Hard work in heat...but rewarding. If you do not have a strong work ethic you will not be successful with this company. If you do then you can make a career out of it


Decent paycheck


Heat in summer

Decent place to work and make a living. A little under paid for the industry but it's definitely above average.

If you're motivated you will move up. If you're not motivated you will just stay a 3rd-4th man. Morton's honestly not a bad job it's very labor-intensive and demanding. The culture is the "just effing do it" type of scene. I was pretty good at my job so my only complaint is the pay.

Not worth it

The Gettysburg office is the most toxic place you’ll ever work in your life 10-10 never recommend this job to anyone. It’s constant belittling and fighting or threatening. They have a mission if they don’t like you they play a game where they force you out of the job by making you hate it so much. The office is just a negative and poorly ran place.

Lost their way

The company does not appreciate you go above and beyond for them. They expect you to work for free. They expect you to choose them over health and family. Dont plan on coaching or supporting your kids in any sports because morton is life nothing else matters. As a foreman you cant run your crew the way you want. Guys can take 2 days off a week and supervisors wont allow you to write them up. There is also no moving up in the company. The company has lost its way. The company use to show us how much they cared about us and our families. Now if you wear work boots and work in all weather conditions. You are replaceable and they let you know it
