Pacific Mobile Structures – Why Work For Us?


Company Profile

Pacific Mobile Structures sells and leases exceptional mobile office space, and builds innovative modular structures. With a rental fleet of 2.5 million square feet, we serve any jobsite needs. We also provide re-locatable classrooms, as well as high-quality modular structures for office buildings, medical clinics, community centers and workforce housing throughout the west.

Mission Statement

Pacific Mobile exists to provide an environment for high performing individuals where they will be challenged to continually improve and never stop learning. This results in our ability to provide the best customer experience in the commercial modular construction industry.

Our approach to every aspect of our business is rooted in these core values: We STAY CONNECTED by valuing relationships. We bring ENTHUSIASM and make it happen! We BUILD TRUST by doing the right thing. We strive to BE GREAT in everything we do. We SERVE to positively impact the lives of others.

Four Cornerstones of Service Excellence

Founded in 1983, Pacific Mobile Structures has been family and locally owned for two generations. Not surprisingly, relationships are extremely important to us. So much so, we’ve built our company on four core principles to ensure that everything we do nurtures every relationship we have. We call these principles our Four Cornerstones of Service Excellence.

Experience

There's no substitute for experience. We value the skills and talent of our employees and they, in turn, appreciate working for a company that values them. The result is smart, personable staff with an average of 15 years of experience. We're large enough to handle any size job - you'll find us on major constructions sites throughout the west - and small enough to be easy to work with.

Quality

Our fleet of mobile offices and classrooms is the best in the industry. That's because we reinvest 15% of our revenues into maintaining our products to the highest standard. Our branches have knowledge of local job sites, so we're able to offer the appropriate office space for the job-with guaranteed on-time delivery and pickup. Consistent product quality and outstanding service are the reasons why our clients stay with us for years.

Flexible

Our full-time, in-house staff is empowered to make decisions on the spot and handle issues quickly. There's rarely any wasted time waiting for corporate approval. We provide flexible pricing, financing and payment terms, and pro-rate invoices to date of return. We offer a large fleet-with flexible, customizable floor plans-from which to choose.

Dedication

Whatever it takes. That's our approach to serving our clients. We're always available; customers have direct dial and cell phone numbers of each of our sales consultants. We're loyal to customers, providing special pricing to those loyal to us. We're also loyal to our communities, re-investing time and money in our local neighborhoods. All of which contributes to long-lasting relationships with our customers.

Pacific Mobile Structures, Inc. provides employee benefits that are designed to attract and retain top performing employees.  We pride ourselves by having a fun, challenging, and rewarding workplace with a customer service focus. Pacific Mobile Structures is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity in the workplace.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pacific Mobile Structures in August 2016.

    Interview

    Received an initial call from Director of HR to set up a phone interview with her and the CIO. The following week had a great interview with both individuals. While I didn't get the job I was happy with the process they communicated with me through the whole process and even sent me the email at the end.
