Walbridge Wants You To Join Our Team

George Walbridge and Albert Aldinger joined forces in Detroit in 1916 and created a company that would grow to become one of the largest, privately held construction firms in America. The same core values instilled by our founders – safety, trust, integrity and accountability – continue to drive our business and our practices today.

“These men established a culture of skill, responsibility and integrity,” said Walbridge Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Rakolta, Jr. “I always like to say there’s something in the water. And what I mean by that is, there’s a history of this company that we all feel committed to. That’s our legacy. That’s why we honor them and maintain values they believed in.”

Our employees play a key role in expanding Walbridge’s business around the world and maintaining high standards. The company places great value in the contributions of Walbridge employees and states the following in its Corporate Vision statement:

“We will attract and retain the best talent by providing challenging opportunities, encouraging innovation and rewarding accomplishments.”


Walbridge continually develops its Learning Culture, which promotes and rewards lifelong learning and professional development. We apply abundant resources to enhance learning and collaboration.
