HUNGRY. HUMBLE. SMART.
Gibbs provides a strong nurturing home for humble, hungry, and smart talent looking for a team within which to grow and contribute. Gibbs employees behave as a team of nimble authentic collaborators – this is our core value.
We believe in the strength of diversity, and we know that a team is always stronger than any one of its members would be on his or her own. We enjoy arriving at good decisions together; we believe we are better together.
Gibbs supports open, honest communication and feedback, and we foster an environment in which our team members are encouraged to stretch their wings and discover their strengths and interests with the back-up of our collective experience.
A foundation of our dealings with others both inside and outside Gibbs is our belief in the inherent dignity of every human being, and the corresponding respect that each is then due.
I like the teamwork that we have, the chemistry — you know, you got my back and got your back. I also like to see the willingness to listen to the solution to a problem. I’m not only a carpenter, but I’m also a problem solver. And sometimes I have an idea that could solve a problem. When I share that idea, the team listens, and considers what I think. They respect my input. I love these guys. It’s just such a family atmosphere. And we work in a true collaborative process – it’s a team effort.

I really like that Gibbs is very family-oriented – it feels like a family. The people I work with are kind, friendly, and supportive. There is an open-door policy and I feel comfortable talking about anything. As the receptionist, I’m most people’s first impression of the company, and I’m proud to represent Gibbs Construction.

The fact that I have been working at Gibbs for almost 24 years is a testament to the value of being in a company that recognizes you as part of the team and not just as an employee. One benefit to working here is that your voice is heard and your ideas are considered. Change is not something Gibbs fears, but something the company embraces. But most importantly, I love working here because Gibbs cares about you as an individual, and because family is always first.
Adries Jordan, Business Administrator
I have felt very comfortable and very much at home here at Gibbs Construction from day one – all the way from the very beginning of the interview process, to my first day on the job, to now. And not just from the leadership of the company, but everyone. I’ve just always felt that I was really a part of the family. It’s a warm, receptive, welcoming and sincere environment. It’s not just what they say, but how they act, too. Gibbs really “walks the talk.” It’s also a very generous company. I tell my guys that we are spoiled to work for a company that provides us so much. I know it’s not like this at every company out there.
