10 Big Myths About Working for CLP

  1. It's just a temp job. When you think about it, isn't all construction "temporary"? Jobs end when projects are completed so chances are, you're looking for work pretty regularly. When you work for CLP, we find work for you and keep you busy, project to project.
  2. Only "desperate" tradespeople work for CLP; the good ones work for contractors. CLP hires only those tradespeople who can complete our rigorous hiring process. We employ many experienced, Journey-level tradespeople, as well as apprentice level workers. They all have one thing in common: a desire to do work they can be proud of.CLP Testimonial
  3. I'll make more money working directly for a contractor. CLP offers a competitive pay scale with some of the top contractors in the area and the opportunity to work on Prevailing Wage jobs. We're at work every day to make sure you have work every day. When the project is completed, you still have a job with CLP.
  4. CLP doesn't offer benefits - I need a health plan. On the contrary - we offer a benefits program that includes a group health plan with medical, hospital, vision, dental, short-term disability and life insurance. We also offer personal time off and team safety incentives.
  5. You can't get a retirement plan when you work for a staffing company. CLP is proud to offer a 401(k) retirement plan you can participate in after one year of service and 1,000 life service hours within that year.
  6. I need to work every day - I can't afford to work temp. Our job is to keep you busy, with no gaps in your work, project to project. But, when you work for CLP you also have the flexibility to work fewer hours if you choose.
  7. Contractors really know their business. CLP staff won't understand me or give me work that fits my skills. CLP has been in the construction staffing business since 1987. Our staff members take the time to get to know each of our employees personally and learn about your skills, interests and strengths so we can match you with work you'll enjoy and do well.
  8. I'll get no respect from the super and my coworkers on the jobsite when they find out I'm from CLP. We maintain excellent relationships with all our customers - many of them rely on us for all their jobs. You'll get to know them and they'll get to know you. And, if you find you don't connect with the super or crew, just let us know and we'll work to reassign you right away.CLP Testimonial
  9. Working for CLP is something people do short-term; it's not a permanent job. When you work for CLP, your assignment may vary in length, but your employment with us is regular. More than 45% of CLP tradespeople have been with us more than a year and 30% for more than two years.
  10. I don't want to go to a different jobsite or a new job every day. At CLP, it's not uncommon for our assignments to last for months, although some are just for a few days or weeks. Our branch staff will work with you to find jobs that meet your needs and skills. And, if you find yourself on a job that isn't a good match, for whatever reason, you're not stuck there - we'll work to reassign you.
