Hard-working smart employees that enjoy their work and make it fun
Accountant (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VADecember 19, 2018
Voted a top work place in the Washington area multiple years. The pay and benefits far surpass their competition Every department has a lot of opportunity for growth, you can even move around between departments. I enjoy my coworkers and management all the way up to the owners. The company’s core values really do show from the top down. I also love that Van Metre has two foundations and have given many millions away over the years to support their community. They value family and work life balance
Pros
Opportunity for growth, benefits and compensation, work life balance
Cons
None

Terrible
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VAOctober 15, 2018
The people there are terrible and the pay is $9/hr. Their systems are very sloppy they are unorganized and give you mixed instructions. I would definitely not recommend working for them.
Cons
barely breaks (if any), little pay

Not a good place to work
Construction Manager (Former Employee) –  VirginiaMarch 8, 2018
When hired at Van Metre I had very little experience with multi family building and they were very aware of that. They provided NO training, expected to know the culture and Business from the first day on the job. The Management doesn't take time to get to know you, they may have said 20 words to me the whole time I was there. I've been with several New homes builders and Van Metre was the worst by far to work with. The construction Managers (Superintendents) are hard workers in the field and are the backbone of the company. The management will send emails saying good job your doing good and than the next day lay you off, not a good environment have to watch your back all the time.
Pros
Superintendents are good hard working guys
Cons
Very negative place to work.
