Join Our Team – Employment Opportunities

Let’s Build Something Together!

Our goal is to field the best team of people possible. Employees are recruited and evaluated based on three key elements:

  • Attitude – An open-minded “can do” mindset is invaluable. Positive energetic individuals with a drive to achieve are prized. Employees are expected to work as part of a team and to perform reflecting the company’s mission and values.
  • Attendance – Reliable on-time presence is crucial for success. The schedule of today’s projects is tighter than ever and we need to count on our people to be there consistently.
  • Ability – Electricians, Data and Firealarm Technicians from green beginner to seasoned tradesperson, are valued on their technical ability, efficiency, experience, and knowledge. We recognize excellence in the ability to learn and improve at any level.

Kortman strives to provide a positive work environment.


Some of our ideas include:

  • Focus on Safety – The company desires all employees to return home to their families in the same condition they left. The Safety Department regularly reviews the job-site conditions, equipment, and work practices. They perform the necessary follow-up, repairs, and training as needed.
  • Drugs Don’t Work – We are committed to having and maintaining a drug-free workplace for the safety and health of employees and all those that come in contact with our worksite, products, and services.
  • Equipment and Materials – Our employees have the proper tools and materials to perform their jobs. Through effective material and asset management, prefabrication and preventative maintenance, the frustration of performing tasks without the necessary items are eliminated.
  • Management Team – Our leaders are continually trained, organized professionals.
  • Zero Tolerance – Each member of our team is assured of a workplace free of harassment and discrimination.
  • Promotion from within – Through education and experience, our employees are encouraged to grow within the organization. Most of our foremen have risen through the ranks. Many of the management staff members are long-term, ex-field employees.
