I was drawn to McCownGordon by the core values, unique projects undertaken and the continuous efforts of investing in future leaders. My transition at McCownGordon surprised me as I settled in quickly, mostly because of the amazing culture. Employees lived up to the core values, exhibiting true integrity, relationships and performance in every aspect of what they did. I worked on real projects as an estimating intern and became a valuable team member with lots of responsibilities. I gained experience that will propel me to persevere in my pursuit of excellence in the construction industry. I am very grateful to be given such a once in a lifetime opportunity."

When I started my summer internship with McCownGordon I instantly became part of the team and gained responsibilities. I learned something new almost every single day. I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience."

—Emily Zahn

2015 Summer Intern | Hired Full-Time in 2017

During my summer at McCownGordon I learned from the best of the best. My superintendent gave me responsibility, respect, and taught me a ton about construction. I loved how all the employees of the company were engaged with the interns. My summer at McCownGordon put me light years ahead in the classroom. A few of my favorite parts were spending time with other interns, company socials and events, and all that Kansas City had to offer."

2018 Summer Intern | Hired Full-Time in 2019

I chose to come back to McCownGordon because I couldn’t imagine a better place with better people to work with every day. We always have a vast range of exciting projects to work on and I get to learn every day from the best team around. I knew that if I went somewhere else it wouldn’t be able to live up to my experience at McCownGordon and I would regret not coming back full time."
