Employee Check-In

Then & Now

Meet Shannon

Shannon Metoxen, Vice President of our Milwaukee Division, has been with JP Cullen since 1999 starting as an intern:

“The photo to the right includes our Owners, all our Project Managers, Estimators, and our Young Leaders for the entire company. Now our Young Leader Group alone has more people in it.  Amazing, the growth we have had over the last 25 years. My advice to young people is to find a Mentor and ask a lot of questions, not only on the “office” side but the field side.  Ask how and why, and you will be a better builder for it.”

My experience as a site engineer intern led me to choose to work full time for JP Cullen. I was given real responsibilities and the right amount of guidance. JP Cullen has the best work environment and most supportive mentors that I have experienced so far in my career. I like working in construction because every day is different, and every day brings a new challenge.

A reason why I chose JP Cullen is because each day looks different from the next. My role in IT allows me the ability to service our teams in the office and field as well as having exposure to many different projects. It’s so cool to have the opportunity to learn more about what our crews are capable of while helping them become more effective with the technology at their fingertips.

I chose JP Cullen because of their variety of work. Everyday is something different and I am constantly learning new things. I was also drawn to the strong mentorship opportunities the safety team could provide me as a young safety professional.

I enjoy working for JP Cullen because of their continued investment into the development of their employees, and their dedication to process improvement on all levels of the operation. Both focuses lead to an exciting culture filled with coworkers that are a joy to work with.

When I started working here, I quickly found out that JP Cullen is a great family business that truly cares and is dedicated to helping you grow. They go above and beyond for their employees and the atmosphere is so friendly and welcoming. I am only 23 but I know I will retire from JP Cullen, and I have many more great years ahead with the company.
