why are you proud to work for Schaefer?

The culture as well as the support for professional and personal growth has been phenomenal and very rewarding. The cumulative expertise in designing diverse construction types with different materials will keep our careers from ever getting dull. Finally, the ability to forge lasting relationships by helping people realize smart and safe structures makes it all worthwhile.

why do you enjoy living in Cincinnati, Ohio?

There are three reasons that come to mind:

1. The feel of a large city without the terrible commute associated with one,
2. The charm which can only be found in a mature and hilly riverside city with a modern architectural touch, and
3. The abundance of great food (and beer).
