You'll need at least 4 years of carpentry experience to have gained the general knowledge needed to perform a variety of duties which range from framing, trim, siding installation, and some miscellaneous tasks, such as drywall taping, light plumbing, and light electrical. Our Carpenters provide their own truck or van and the standard set of tools needed in the unpredictable remodeling environment. Part of that knowledge set includes reading construction plans and interpreting written project scopes.

Are you good with people? Can you explain what you are doing and what needs to be done clearly to your project manager as well as impatient homeowners? Communication is as critical as a sharp saw blade. Apply online today!

To improve the lives of homeowners.
Wow, can it be that simple? Yep. It could have been to make things prettier, or bigger, or simply to make things different. But in the end, those goals are lasting nor are they measurable. The home, the space, whatever you call it, serves the daily life of its residents. If what we do makes lives safer, happier, easier, warmer, cooler, more efficient, less wasteful, or psychologically healthier, then we all win.
STABILITY— 39 years and counting! Murphy Bros. longevity is a remarkable story. We are among only a few remodelers in the Twin Cities to have navigated the ups and downs of the market and flourished for so many years. In business as in life, the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.
REPUTATION— Winning the coveted Better Business Bureau (BBB) Torch Award for Ethics in Business is a true milestone. It says we go the extra mile when it comes to treating our clients, vendors and ourselves with rigorous integrity.
Uncommon Integrity—It's what you do when no one is looking. It's also what you do when everyone is looking—make a promise, keep a promise. Own your mistakes and not the ones that don't belong to you. Work a full day even if you don't feel like it. Always tell the truth and if you're not sure what that is, at least don't lie.
Get It Done With Great Care—Work hard, but smart. Getting something done quickly without attention to detail and best practices is not acceptable. Getting something done perfectly that takes twice as long as it should is also nothing to brag about. A poorly written email with tons of assumptions left unclarified is no less careless than a window trim miter that doesn't quite line up, an out-of-square cabinet door, or a paint job with dips. It also means the job you find undone maybe need your effort even if that's not your assigned task for the day.
Glad to see 'ya!—This is all about attitude. As the saying goes, bring one to work every day and make sure it's a good one. "Glad to see ya people" also make life easier for others. They pitch in and ask more questions than they make statements. When they ask about your weekend, they really mean it. They simply make the day go fast.
Gotta be a better way—It is more than embracing the concepts of continuous improvement and the elimination of waste to improve capacity. This is also about a spirit of innovation coupled with the willingness to entertain new perspectives on established procedures. Another way to approach this idea is can be described as the 1% improvement concept—every day. Small innovations or improvements carried out company-wide over an entire year can have a tremendous impact.
RECOGNITION— With a 95% GuildQuality satisfaction rating, selected for the 2nd year in a row to the Top 60 list in client satisfaction, Murphy Bros. continues to win local, regional and national design/build awards. We compete with ourselves for excellence rather than looking to others for our benchmarks.
GROWTH— We’re all about growth and continuous improvement. Whether it’s continuing education opportunities or the most advanced technological tools in the industry, Murphy Bros. is committed to helping staff excel and prosper. With an employee headcount in the mid 40's we are poised to hit the 9 million dollar mark in 2022!
GREAT TOOLS— Our CRM and cloud-based project management platforms, (BuilderTrend & Infusionsoft), are great platforms for efficiency, productivity and transparent communication. We also have north and south metro display centers for client convenience, all backed by dedicated full-time multi-channel marketing.
FLEXIBLE & FOCUSED— As a family owned and operated business we understand family needs are as important as personal goals. That’s why we created an environment or great autonomy for sales and production regarding daily schedules. At the same time we stay focused on the key metrics of close ratios, profitability, gross margins and above all else, satisfied clients.
GREAT COMPENSATION & CULTURE— We offer a base compensation package to cover basic needs along with a total compensation based on individual production. Add to that a 401K with a match, 100% health insurance paid premium for full-time employees, cloud-based Bamboo HR intranet to monitor all your benefits, paid holidays and vacation pay, and if required for the position, and a vehicle/tool/phone allowance, and hardware/software as needed to get the job done.
