McLean is a unique employer offering several different career tracks and paths based on your education, experience and interests.  Whether you are interested in a professional position in one of our office locations or a trade position directly on one of our jobsites or in one of our construction yards, McLean has the ability to offer a variety of opportunities.

McLean provides the opportunity for employees without a significant amount of training to learn a new trade/craft. We have a long history of employees who were hired as laborers and were trained to be Carpenters, Piledrivers, Crane Operators and many other skilled positions. Many of our Foreman, General Foreman and Superintendents started their careers as laborers and have worked hard and learned enough along the way to be promoted to a supervisor.

McLean is fortunate to employ many multi-generational families as part of our hardworking crews.  We have parents/children, siblings, cousins and even some grandparents/grandchildren working together.  Even in cases where they have not had to opportunity to work together, McLean has a rich history of employees wanting to work at McLean because they have relatives who worked here their whole careers.  At McLean it is not unusual to see employees on many of our jobsites and in our crews who have worked here 15, 20, 25 and 30+ years.  Recently, we had an employee retire from our corporate location with over 52 years of service with McLean!!!!

At McLean, we work hard to ensure the success of our employee owned company!  McLean’s success is our employee’s success.  We take pride in bringing each of our construction products to an efficient and profitable conclusion.  This takes an effort from all of our employees to work as a team to get the job done.

When we are not working hard, we also like to play hard!   McLean provides our employees with a summer picnic for all the families, a holiday party and a crab feast.  We offer employee raffles throughout the year and some of our recent prizes include: a trip to I Fly (indoor skydiving), Redskins and or Ravens tickets, Orioles tickets, Tides tickets, gift cards, etc.

We are proud to be a 100% employee owned company and we are proud of the work our employees do to make us successful every day!
