Who We Built Is As Import As What We Built.

An industry leader needs individual leaders. We place a premium on finding and developing the right people. We want individuals who share our core values and who demonstrate a true passion for what they do, whether in the field or office.

At JRU, it’s not just about experience and skill set; it’s also about passion and drive. As one of the nation’s leading technical builders with a strong sense of purpose, JRU combines traditional quality practices and extensive building experience with a take-charge, self-initiated, roll-up-your-sleeves attitude and management style.

We are continuously looking for experienced individuals, who not only possess extensive technical building expertise but also share in our four core values. Our core values serve as the foundation of JRU. They are the fundamental beliefs that are clearly defined for everyone in the company and are often displayed on the walls of jobsite trailers and throughout our regional offices.

Integrity – We conduct all business with the highest standards of honesty and fairness; we can be trusted.

JRU is a company built on trust. People are empowered to make decisions at every level. In fact, we strongly believe that the person closest to the issue or with the most knowledge of the situation is the one who can often find the best solution or make the right choice.

Enjoyment– We believe work should be fun and intrinsically satisfying; if we are not enjoying ourselves, we are doing something wrong.

People who "play" well together, tends to work even better together. We offer lots of opportunities for teambuilding both in and out of the office, and all of our offices are designed around a central gathering place (wine bar) for impromptu and planned celebrations.

Uniqueness – We must be different from and more progressive than all other construction companies; we stand for something.

From open offices (even the founders sit in cubes) to our flat, first-name organizational structure, JRU stands out from the rest. We have created an environment that fosters our entrepreneurial spirit and enhances creativity. It’s all about what is right rather than who is right at JRU.

Ever Forward – We believe in continual self-initiated change, improvement, learning and advancement of standards for their own sake.

JRU is a learning organization that sets standards and then exceeds them. We are in a constant learning process, which is critical to our success. We continuously evaluate our performance, learn from each other and create even stronger mechanisms for providing smarter, faster, better service to our customers, moving both ourselves and the industry ever forward.

Dental Insurance

JR Universal Construction, Inc. offers you dental insurance coverage through Delta Dental Insurance. The Delta dental PPO plan allows employees to select their dental provider at time of service; however, using a contracted provider will provide a better benefit. This benefit also provides orthodontia coverage for adults and children. Maximums apply.

Vision coverage is provided by Kaiser Permanente. Vision coverage allows employees to receive eye exams, glasses and non-disposable contact lenses at low co-payments or discounts.

Chiropractic Insurance

Chiropractic benefits are provided by Kaiser Permanente to employees. This benefit requires the use of the Kaiser network of chiropractors. The benefit covers office visits with a co-payment required.


Short-Term Disability

California employees are required to file for California state disability.

Educational Assistance

JRU's Educational Assistance provides financial support to employees who want to further their education and enhance their skills. Reimbursement of up to $5,000 per calendar year is available to cover tuition costs (including books), and professional license fees. To be eligible, employees must work for JRU a minimum of one year. In order to receive reimbursement, the courses or training taken must be completed and must be in a field related to your work at JRU.

Employee Referral Program

JRU is always looking to hire great people. So as an incentive to bring new employees to JRU, the JRU Search Program will award employees who refer a friend or relative for a current job opening.

401(k) Salary Deferral Plan

JRU employees are eligible to participate in the JRU Construction 401(k) Plan administered by Vanguard. All contributions are vested immediately. Employees who are over the age of 50 are eligible to participate in the catch-up contribution, which increases the annual deferral limit for those who qualify.

Holidays & Holiday Shutdown

JRU offices and the majority of jobsites close down annually for the time period between Christmas and the New Year.
