These men have been attending an apprenticeship class 2.5 hrs, once a week since the start of 2011. These men are evaluated every six months on Soft skills, Technical skills, Performance and NCCER training. By taking full advantage of career advancement opportunities offered by Marek, they have shown great commitment over the past year and are key team players.

HARLINGEN — Half of the subcontractors building the multimillion-dollar, 150,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shops store are from the Rio Grande Valley or have offices here.
Of 20 subcontractors hired by Bass Pro for the job, 10 are located in cities from Harlingen to McAllen.
These businesses are building and installing everything from concrete sections, flooring and roofing to lighting and air conditioning.
One local subcontractor is Harlingen-based Commercial Plumbing & Mechanical Contractors.
It is that time of year again, it's time to recognize our employees who have been employed at Marek Brothers for a minimum of 10 years.
As you may know we have been giving our journeymen the opportunity to take the NCCER exam. In doing this we were working towards a proud and educated workforce. Our mission is to build a safe, productive, and sustainable workforce of craft professionals. I am happy to update everyone and let them know that now 30% of our workforce is NCCER Certified and that number will only go up as the testing continues.
