WHO WE ARE
Market & Johnson operates offices in three locations—Eau Claire and La Crosse, Wisconsin and Oakdale, Minnesota—and provides over $400 million in construction services to Western Wisconsin and Eastern Minnesota. We employ approximately 400 employees, most of which is our highly-trained field workforce.
We believe our family-like atmosphere is what makes our company a great place to work. We want our employees to get to know one another. We do this by encouraging an environment where they work together, team-build and continually learn from each other. This type of camaraderie builds respect, common goals and communication and that's a win-win for everyone.
Happy employees are an asset to any firm. That's why we provide our employees with an enriching and rewarding environment that offers the best resources, tools, and support they can get to serve our clients in the best way possible--by adding value to everything they do. We believe that when we champion an environment where employees can bring their all, share new ideas and learn new skill sets, we can continually innovate and improve our processes together.
Our employees are committed to making a difference, so we encourage them to give their time, skills and energy to the communities where they live and work. We feel volunteering provides the opportunity for employees to build new skills and progress in their careers.
"I started at Market & Johnson 23 1/2 years ago as an accounting assistant. I have taken advantage of the education opportunities M&J provides to grow my career here. The owners and co-workers treat each other like equal team members and we work together to get the job done. It's like a family that cares."
"My grandfather was a carpenter for M&J and my father was a supervisor. I've worked for Market & Johnson for about 35 years. I started out as a laborer, then Dan Market offered me an Apprenticeship. I was mentored into sub foreman and foreman positions until Jerry Shea offered me a superintendent opportunity about 25 years ago and it has been nonstop adventures from the first day. The construction crew workers, IT Department, safety team, project managers, project manager assistants, and all the office workers are friendly, humorous, fun people to be around. It's a fun, exciting place to work."
"I've been with M&J for 25 years, mostly as a mason and masonry field superintendent. Two years ago, I accepted the position of Masonry Project Manager. It was a great opportunity to challenge myself as I stepped into a different position with the company. Everyone has been very helpful in my transition, probably one of the main reasons why it's a pleasure working for Market and Johnson. We have a great team, and I don't see that ever changing!!!"
"I've been with Market & Johnson for about two and a half years. What I enjoy most about working at Market & Johnson are the people, the environment and the challenge. Upon starting, construction was not something I was familiar with, at least not commercial construction. Everything is constantly changing – from how we communicate to the technology we use. Each project has its challenges and rewards and no two projects that are the same. What makes M&J a great place to work is even with the considerable amount of growth that we've experienced in the last few years, it remains a close-knit, family-focused atmosphere."
"I started as a pre-apprentice carpenter during the summers in high school and then interned through college; I've been here full time since 2014. M&J has challenged me in my career by putting me in growth opportunities at all stages while ensuring I had the proper resources and support. I enjoy waking up every day and coming to work, I get to work with the greatest clients, on the coolest projects with the best team in the area."
"Being an introverted person, I have trouble getting out of my comfort zone. Market & Johnson has helped me grow into a more confident individual both personally and professionally. They continue to challenge me by encouraging continued education and participation in activities like community involvement and inter-work groups focused on improving the company. Everyone here has the drive to want to do more and strives to do the best they can for a company they care about. It is very infectious. While the employees care about the company, Market & Johnson genuinely cares about its employees."
"I've worked at Market & Johnson for almost 12 years as a project manager. I started as an intern and M&J has continually offered me the training I need to grow and keep ahead of the industry. I like that every project has its own challenges and I know M&J is always there for any support I need to succeed. We have a team atmosphere and it's very contagious, everyone takes pride in wearing the M&J logo as if it was their own name on their shirt."
