Mission: Donny Wyatt started CoConstruct after he and his wife had a "typical" custom homebuilding experience. He began a mission to ensure that no other home builder, remodeler, or clients would have the same problems that he ...
I have been working at CoConstruct full-time (More than a year)
I’ve worked for some outstanding companies with really excellent leaders; they typically lead from the front, set the examples and have their teams’ best interest at heart. The leadership team at CoConstruct reflects those traits as well, but there another important ingredient that I have never experienced before, and that has centers around its core values. I think every organization expresses their purpose/goals/aims in some sort of mission and values statement. It’s something other companies typically cover when you start and perhaps reference from time to time…sounds nice and maybe shows up occasionally in practice. (Or maybe not.)
But at CoConstruct it is the real deal. I’ve never seen a shared ethos enacted every day from the top down the way it is here. I felt it the first moments, even before I could really even define it. This company cares deeply about their core values and strives to live them out every moment…and is probably the single most important point of differentiation here.
I feel you get straight answers, that everyone is honest when there is something that could have been done better or if mistakes were made. It's kind of a no BS zone in the whole office. People are truly focused on wanting to produce a superior product and customer experiences. I think everyone is exceptionally bright and capable; I don’t look around and find anyone that maybe shouldn’t be there or wonder how they got the job. And it is a tremendously fun and challenging environment to work hard in. Everyday.
An exceptional place to work!
If someone is resistant to change, this may not be the ideal place. With growth comes on-going refinement - and that's not necessarily comfortable for everyone.
Advice to Management
As we grow, never lose sight of who we are and why we choose to work here.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CoConstruct (Charlottesville, VA) in April 2016.
It was thorough. Multiple phone screens, a couple day in person interview with different teams, and some group interviewing. I also came in to see a Co-camp to get a better understanding of the company's customers.
