  • How did CPOC get started?
    As you already know, we’re contractors, too. Back in 2015, we had more work than we did superintendents, so we tried a couple of “construction staffing solutions” in the Tri-State area. When the first one didn’t work out, we tried another, and got the same inexperienced and unqualified applicants contacting us. We knew that we could do better, and in 2016 CPOC went into business.

  • What makes CPOC different from other construction staffing options?
    The biggest difference is that we are contractors, so we understand the industry needs like no one else. And we only place construction professionals, we don’t deal with cubicle workers, warehouse staff, or retail sales positions.
