Best Places to Work in Construction and Surrounding Industries 2020

Everyone wants a job they love. Glassdoor.com, a job and recruiting site, released its annual top 100 employers list. The research uses employee feedback to determine the top companies to work for. Since the list included more than just construction- and tool-related companies we ran our own search. We wanted to know the best places to work in construction and related industries for 2021. All of the companies below fall into the realm of construction—everything from home builders to tool manufacturers.

We’re not entirely sure why Pro Tool Reviews didn’t wind up at the #1 spot. This especially irks us considering the results are based on employee feedback. Oh well, maybe next year…
