Working at Ideal Contracting

  • “Ideal provides a welcoming family culture to their employees. Everyone is always getting together in a non-working atmosphere to establish deeper relationships with one another. There are also numerous opportunities for advancement within the company, and they equip with you any resource that you may need.”

    - Bill Kostich, Project Estimator / Manager

  • "Starting as an intern, I never thought I would be where I am today. The amount of mentoring and growth opportunities I have been given is truly an honor. I have felt welcome since my first day. We all work together, ensuring every site, job, and employee has everything they need to succeed while giving customers a high-quality experience.

    - Sabella Ammiano, Assistant Project Manager

  • “Working at Ideal Contracting has been life-changing. I started at Ideal in the Build U Internship program four years ago. I was hired with the dream of learning more about construction but not knowing where to start. After my internship program, I decided to stay on board full-time. Everyone at this company empowers you to be curious, ask questions, learn from your mistakes, and voice your thoughts and opinions. It’s a growing and learning environment that I had never been a part of before. The family dynamic here is nothing that you can find at other companies. Everyone is always willing to be a mentor and teacher. No matter where you are in your career, Ideal Contracting has opportunities for you to develop your skills and knowledge.”

    - Kinzie Baad, Project Engineer

  • "Promoting a positive attitude, a good support team, and a strong safety program are keys to success in this physically and mentally demanding industry. Ideal excels at all of these, making them an excellent place to build your career.”

    - Kevin Stuart, Superintendent

  • “Joining Ideal Contracting was a career-defining moment for me. I really enjoy the various project challenges and the mixture of projects that we engage in; it makes for an interesting experience every day. Additionally, the collaborative approach at all levels around Ideal is so refreshing and appreciated. When you are asked for your opinion on a topic, you can rest assured that it is heard and considered. From my first day, the Venegas family and leadership at Ideal were sincerely welcoming and appreciative that I chose Ideal to continue my career with. That isn’t an environment that is easily found in construction, especially with an exponentially growing company like Ideal. Believe me when I say, the pleasure is absolutely all mine. The future is very bright at Ideal Contracting.”

    - Blake Arkwood, Project Estimator/Manager

  • “Joining the team at Ideal Contracting was like becoming part of a big, hard-working family. I felt welcomed with open arms when I moved my own family from Chicago back to Detroit. Ideal’s leadership and company culture has provided me with all the resources, mentorship, and tools necessary to continue to learn, grow, and realize my short-term and long-term career goals and aspirations. The company itself is growing at a very rapid rate, and it has been extremely impressive to see the various teams come together to facilitate that growth. There are very exciting times ahead for Ideal Contracting, and I am very excited to be a part of it!”

    - Adam Szajner, Senior Project Manager
