Great place to work if you are motivated. You will thrive at shilling if you show up everyday, do your job, and work well with others. It is truly a well ran family owned business.

Truck Driver

Nobody cares what you learn. Management trained me one day. Constantly yelled at by everyone who thinks they know everything. Don’t ask questions and stay to yourself.

If your white your right

I was called everything but my name as a black man there! If your a black person I wouldn’t apply. You sell your soul been at work all day sunset til sun down and you never know when you get off! Plus after a long day of work you might still have to drive a HR back from the job site


Paid weekly


Sold your soul

I started with Shilling 17 years ago, with a shovel in my hand. I have risen from that to a veteran driver during that time. Shilling Construction has helped me every step of the way. I get along with my immediate supervisor well, and have been able to approach all management levels within the company easily. They have kept me working and making a living. I like the work and the people I work with. Can't ask for anything better than that.


Outdoor physical work environment.


Time away from home can get tedious

A place of hard work and a feeling of family.

I have worked for this company for nearly 15 years. I started in 2002 with a shovel in my hand and have worked my way up to end dump driver. I have held a variety of positions along the way and when I have assumed a new role there have been operators there to show me the way. I have always been able to call them up for advice, and that has extended to the executive staff as well. They have treated me like family, and have always kept me working.


Team atmosphere, good equipment, executive staff valuing my input.


Sometimes its a little tough to get equipment repairs done in a timely manner.

Be prepared

It is a grueling life you have to be prepared to accept. The pace is quick and varies from day to day. The employees become short tempered due to the stress of deadlines and environmental conditions. Pay is good if you got the skills to make it.


Good pay, work


Spuratic work, tempers, schedule
