EMPLOYEE TESTIMONIALS

“My career at Exxel started at the age of 19, driving the company waste container truck, working with the small utilities and excavation crews.  I loved how Exxel had the small company atmosphere, although we were working on large and impressive projects.  I decided to go to school for Construction Management, working for Exxel as an Intern over the summer months and was re-hired as a Project Engineer when I graduated.

What I enjoy most is the freedom that management gives their employees to work within their means and make their own career path.  If you have the desire to grow and take on new roles and responsibilities, they will support you and give you the opportunity to do so.  This has helped my personal growth and career development immensely, as I have moved up through the ranks to Senior Project Manager in a relatively short time.

I value our relationship-based corporate culture, we treat people fairly and with respect, regardless of whether you are an Owner, Consultant, Subcontractor, fellow Employee, or someone living in the neighborhood of one of our projects.  Relationships matter to the people of Exxel.”
-Tyson Scheenstra, Senior Project Manager

“Exxel Pacific has given me opportunities and fostered my career development since I worked as a laborer my first couple summers in college. I was hired as Project Engineer upon graduating and am now a Senior Superintendent. What I like about working for Exxel is how much they value their employees; they encourage critical thinking and embrace new ideas . They reward their employees through competitive wages, generous Short Term Incentive Plan, and company stock ownership; but most importantly, they reward their employees by providing a culture that fosters safety, teamwork, integrity, and a common goal of building a quality project and ensuring our clients are happy.”
-Jeff Christianson, Senior Project Superintendent

“My internship more than exceeded my expectations and I can’t think of a thing I would have changed. I was given tasks and responsibilities immediately and was also provided the tools needed do the work. I enjoyed the opportunity to work with numerous scopes of work and the various phases of each scope. At the beginning of this summer my hope was to stay busy and learn as much as possible, both of these things I was able to find in this internship.”
