Construction Superintendent Trainee (CST)


About Us

Come work with the best! At Precision Blasting, a division of Maine Drilling & Blasting (MD&B), we work like owners because we are owners. As a majority employee owned ESOP Company, we work with the unity of family and the determination of business owners. Our standard is to achieve operational excellence at all levels of the organization, whether we are serving internal or external customers. We are fueled by success, because we are personally vested in the outcome.

In addition to our employer-contributed Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) retirement program, we also have a traditional Company matched 401(k), health, dental, vision, life, and disability benefits. If advancement is what you’re looking for, we offer that also. Our learning and development opportunities are industry leading, and the formula for our success is centered on promotion from within.

About The Opportunity

Salary: $59,800 plus vehicle and fuel allowance. Target incentives up to an additional $200 per week as you achieve deliverable milestones!

We are experiencing explosive growth and looking to build an even more robust pipeline of future business leaders. Our Construction Superintendent Trainee (CST) program is designed to introduce you to the drilling and blasting industry the MD&B way. Our CSTs join an internal Leadership Development Program aimed at building and developing a broad range of skills, knowledge, and experiences necessary to move into career paths toward future manager, supervisory, and leadership positions in support of the Company’s growth.

You will learn:

Safety and compliance as they relate to drilling and blasting operations;

All aspects of drilling in both construction and quarry environments;

You will build the skills and experience required to become a State licensed Blaster;

Procurement and logistics related to drilling and blasting activities (materials, supplies, equipment);

How QC efforts support project profitability;

Project budgets and standards;

Project supervision and leadership.

In order to facilitate your learning, here’s what we will need from you:

Our geographic footprint is large (and growing), the pace of your professional growth will be directly related to your willingness to follow opportunities wherever they are presented. This means travel within a multi-state area (don’t worry, your meals and hotels are covered);

You will be learning our trade from the ground up, which means laboring, drilling, and blasting. It’s a manual process, and we need you to be excited about all the steps;

We work outside on varied terrain. All the time. And in all the weather. We’re not always happy about it, but drilling and blasting are rarely done inside (ok, never inside), and we get it done safely and on time. Did we mention, in all the weather?

The CST program builds future leaders, and part of the process is an established roadmap for you. We call this a Development Plan, and you will be highly engaged in the success of this Plan. In fact, you own it. We will assign you a dedicated mentor to support you at all times, but the motivation to succeed is all you.


About You

This is an entry level leadership development position, and as such you are most likely a recent College grad with a degree in Construction, Engineering, Mining, or similar. You may also be recently separated from Military service and looking for an opportunity that will value your self-discipline and standards for safety and excellence. But honestly, this is not the only blueprint for success at MD&B. Dedication, enthusiasm, hard work, integrity, honesty, and responsibility are key indicators for us in any candidate interested in joining our world class team. Our leaders are good communicators, highly competitive (we want to win!), and can build teams through influence and building consensus.
