Since the pandemic hit, everyone has been reevaluating what they want from life, work, family and friends. If the Great Resignation has shown us anything, it’s that employees are interested in finding work that works for them, living out their values and providing intangible benefits that they may not be finding at their current workplace. 

Working with an asphalt repair company may be the right fit for you if you enjoy hands-on work outdoors, comradery, on-the-job training and are interested in climbing a career ladder. Asphalt careers with AA Asphalting provide both experienced and beginners in the construction industry an amazing avenue for opportunity. 

The concrete careers offered by a commercial asphalt repair company provide a lot of great benefits for anyone interested in a workplace with clear opportunities for career growth. From consistent hours to variety, here are some of the benefits of working with a supportive team like AA Asphalting.

Asphalt Careers Offer Opportunities for Advancement

One of the best things about asphalt jobs is the fact that they offer great opportunities for career advancement. Best of all, you can start laying the groundwork for your concrete career just after high school and while you’re in college by working as a flagger during the summer. 

Flaggers and laborers allow you to gain on-the-job experience with a competitive hourly wage that increases as your skills do, too. 

From that foundation, flaggers can train and certify as a Traffic Control Supervisor to level up their pay and responsibilities. They could also join a crew as a laborer and then train to be an operator by learning the ins and outs of specific asphalting equipment. 

That paves the way (pun intended) for further work as a driver, lead, or foreman. At AA Asphalting, 90 percent of all field leadership has been trained and staffed internally, so we mean it when we say that we promote from within.

Training in Lifelong Skills

Working asphalt jobs allows you to train in a variety of lifelong skills that will be useful whether or not you decide to stay in the commercial asphalt repair and concrete industry. From studying for and earning your Washington state CDL license to CPR, First Aid, and formal leadership training, many of the skills you gain working for an asphalt repair company are quite transferable.

Gain Work/Life Balance

Work/life balance has been a huge topic since the pandemic, and for good reason. If you’re someone that loves variety and can’t stand the monotony of a desk job (even if you’re working from a home office), then working in commercial asphalt services could be a big boon. Concrete jobs let you work outdoors at a different site every day, and you have consistent hours that allow you to be home each night to see your family. 

If you’d rather join a travel crew, that’s up to you, but isn’t required at AA Asphalting. Best of all, with nine different locations for Northwest asphalt, you can find the closest location for you to reduce your daily commute. Some of the areas AA Asphalting hires for by location include:
