MORE THAN JUST

A PAYCHECK

Each year, between 30 and 50 young adults are assigned to Miron’s four-year program, learning the trades of masonry, carpentry, ironwork, and millwright services. At the end of their paid training, they emerge as skilled professionals.

Most become full-time Miron employees, proud to count themselves among the 1,200+ skilled craftspeople on the company’s payroll. In fact, 60 percent of Miron’s craftspeople originally started in the apprenticeship program. And many of them—more than 20 in all—are the third generation of their families working for Miron. Over the years, hundreds of people have participated in the
company’s apprenticeship program.

The best part of being an apprentice at Miron is coming to work and feeling safe, not only with my job but with those around me. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Considering an apprenticeship in any line of construction work is a great idea for anyone. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain; there are many options for someone who is unsure. There are many doors to open after you open the first one.

The best part about being an apprentice at Miron is that all the craftspeople treat you very well, and they take into consideration that you aren’t going to know everything right away, so they are willing to work to help you learn more. People should consider apprenticeships in the construction industry because it sets you up for success. There are so many different opportunities for career paths when it comes to construction, and every day is different.

Rheanna | Millwright Apprentice

The best part about being an apprentice at Miron is that I am learning something new every day by experienced professionals. Getting paid to learn and having hands-on experience really helps you grow as a person and in your career. I think someone should consider an apprenticeship in construction because it’s a job that’s always going to be there. But also, being a female in the industry, I think that it is really important for us to learn new skills that typically women don’t have a lot of experience doing. I grow and gain confidence in myself every day.

Hannah | Laborer Apprentice

From my experience, the people who are employed at Miron work with its core values in mind every day. Every employee is treated with respect and the leadership listens to everyone’s respectful opinions, which makes you feel like you are a valuable member of a team. As a veteran, I really appreciate and respect that trait. Working as an apprentice at Miron is truly enjoyable. I am also able to achieve my own personal goals of becoming a Journeyman Carpenter and learn as much as possible every day on the job.
