Frequently Asked Questions

Where does Penro work?

Most of our work is within a one hour drive of Pender. This includes the cities of Norfolk, Fremont and Sioux City — and all of the towns and villages between.

Does Penro have employment restrictions?

All applicants must have a valid driver's license and be able to lift 40 pounds repetitively. To keep our employees safe, all applicants are subject to background checks and must pass a substance screening.

Is employment at Penro full-time, or seasonal?

We hire for both. Our work is seasonal with a normal construction season from March through December. January and February give us a well-deserved rest and the opportunity to service and maintain equipment in our shop. Some years, we have construction work that can be done indoors, as well. Anyone who doesn't prefer mechanic work or who would rather have those months off is eligible for seasonal layoff and can receive unemployment benefits during that time. We can discuss these options during your interview.

Is Penro hiring now?

We keep our current positions posted — such as on our Facebook page — but we are always looking for people who fit our culture and who can contribute to our company. We encourage you to apply anytime, whether you see an open position or not.
