“Southern Site Contractors is a great company because there’s so much growth potential here, but there’s still a family feel regarding how it’s run and how people interact. It’s a laid-back atmosphere, but there’s still structure to it as well.”
Erin Eckard
Assistant Project Manager
“We’re becoming a larger company, but we still have a small-company feel. Southern Site also has a lot of things to offer that most other companies in the industry don’t have, as far as benefits go.”
Chandler Gant
