Philadelphia's own Post Brothers is expanding ... and hiring
You may have heard of Post Brothers before, probably because they became instant local celebrities when they went head-to-head with Philadelphia's building-trade unions.
Long story short, Philadelphia's building-trade unions wanted Post Brothers to use 100% union labor (at union prices), and Post Brothers wanted a hybrid of both union/non-union workers at its Goldtex project (to save on costs); understandable.
Needless to say, Post Brothers won the battle. They even managed to sneak a crane past union protesters so as to not fall behind on schedule; genius.
Now that PB has a good understanding of the building/development process in the City of Brotherly Love, and all of its quirks and eccentricities, they are investing heavily by taking on more urban projects and increasing their staff.
With real estate on the rise once again, it's only a matter of time until more and more new construction opportunities become available to interested Philadelphians. For now, they are advertising some local opportunities.
