MAC and State Tech

Building Construction Careers

McConnell & Associates (MAC) is a civil construction company specializing in parking lots, tennis courts, and running tracks. We take great pride in building, maintaining, and beautifying the places our communities walk, park, and play.

You can build amazing things with MAC—including a fulfilling career at an employee-owned company that values you.

Our Kansas City and St. Louis locations have been hiring students and grads from State Technical College of Missouri since 2008. We’re growing, and we need good people who want to grow with us. If that’s you, read on!

Career Opportunities With MAC

We have full-time, part-time, summer, and paid internship opportunities for State Tech students and grads.

Equipment Operators (KC & St. Louis)

Fulfills Heavy Equipment Operator (HEO) Program Internship Requirement

Join the crew and get hands-on experience with construction equipment! Our Asphalt Crew in KC operates skid steers, asphalt pavers, and asphalt rollers. Our Dirt Crews in Kansas City operate CAT equipment that is cycled out with new equipment every 3 to 4 years.  Those crews operate various sizes of skid steers, excavators, and rollers on a daily basis.  As we continue to grow our dirt department it is becoming more and more common for these crews to operate dozers, high lifts, and front-end loaders on a more frequent basis. We also have opportunities on our new Dirt/Specialty Crew in St. Louis.

Fun fact: Our first two Dirt Crews in KC started with State Tech alumni as foremen!

If you are in the one-year HEO certificate program: Our equipment operator positions fulfill the four-week internship requirement. However, we hire our HEO interns on as full-time employees from Day One. There’s no need to wait until after an internship is completed to start a full-time career.

If you are in the two-year Civil Construction associates degree program: We can consider you for an hourly equipment operator position for the summer with the intention of bringing you back for a full-time equipment operator position after graduation. Or, you can be considered for our Civil Construction Summer Internships (see below).

Summer Internships and Full-Time Opportunities for Civil Engineering and Civil Construction Students

MAC has multiple internship opportunities at our KC and St. Louis offices every summer. These highly competitive internships are salaried summer positions as Field Engineers and/or Estimators/Project Managers.

We recruit for these positions from State Tech as well as several other four-year and two-year schools. On-campus interviews typically happen in September for these internships. Most internships are offered and accepted by early October for the following summer.

Fun fact: Six of our eight 2021 summer interns were offered and accepted full-time jobs with us!

We always look to fill our full-time Field Engineer, Estimator, and Project Manager positions from our intern ranks first.

Summer Laborer Positions

Our St. Louis office always has five to 10 summer laborer positions that offer lots of overtime and big paychecks. For anyone interested in earning money to help pay for school and/or to have extra spending money, this can be a great opportunity.
