Aside from great employee benefits, you can expect a company that values and appreciates our employee owners.

Benefits & ESOP

In 2018 the average retirement account balance of McGuire and Hester active participants was not only higher than average construction industry account balance, it was also higher than the average in all industries. On your first day at McGuire and Hester, you become an owner as a participant in our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). As a participant, you receive a 100% Employer paid beneficial interest in stock. Your ESOP and 401k account with employer matching will provide you with help in securing a successful future and the additional advantage of being able to borrow from your own accounts. Eliminate the need to pay extravagant lender interest rates and instead pay yourself back for assistance with paying down student loans, or help with a down payment on a new home or any other financial need. Enjoy working for a company that provides you with a company vehicle, rewards your hard work, and understands the importance of family and vacation time.
