Frequently Asked Questions

Our hiring process is very casual and laid back. 

Step 1: You reach out to us via text, Instagram etc or apply on the website.

Step 2: We will jump on the phone and have an introductory phone call.

Step 3: If we both feel like we should get to know each other more we will set up a 30-60 minute meeting. This meeting is more of a conversation than an interview. We don’t like reading questions off a script and making you feel uncomfortable. 

Step 4: After our first in-person interview there are a few things that might happen..

  • Period of waiting while we interview other candidates if we have numerous.
  • We decide it wouldn’t be a good fit and let you know
  • You get hired! 😉

After you send in your online application, it gets sent to the hiring manager. Usually they will review applications within 1-2 business days. If we are interested in your application, He will reach out via text or phone call with 5 days of you sending your application.

We’re looking for people that share the following values.

  • Lighten Up
    • Attitude is a choice
    • Be an energy boost, not an energy suck
    • We are serious about results, but we can take a joke.
  • Find a Way
    • Find solutions, not excuses
    • When others are “finding a way,” I support them.
  • Put the Team First
    • I am ready, willing, and able to support the team – no matter what lies ahead.
    • I take responsibility for my mistakes and understand it impacts the entire team.
    • I do my job with the intent to make the next person’s life easier.

Yes, for sure! Even though many of our hires come from employee referrals, we still review every application! We have made excellent hires that were not referrals!

Really, this depends. For the most part, you should hear back from us within 5 business days from submitting your application. If you haven’t heard from us after 5 days, feel free to give us a call and check in on your application. 

Check out our Instagram, Social Media, Website, Online Reviews, Youtube etc. Let us know what you learned at the interview from any or all of those places! 

It just depends. During an interview process, we usually are looking at multiple candidates and depending on when other interviews are scheduled, it could take anywhere from a few days to 3 weeks for us to make a decision. After your in-person interview, we will let you know how what to expect for next steps along with our expected timelines. You won’t be in the dark during the process.

We get it. Switching jobs can be a big deal, and we don’t take it lightly. Maybe you don’t want your current employer to know you are thinking about leaving and you just want to learn more. Or you think we would be a company that you want to work for but just are not sure. You can always reach out and have an introductory call or tour with Leif or Louie with zero strings attached.

Cascade is a People company, that builds fences and decks. We are mission-driven individuals with a passion for making sure people love their jobs and customers are being treated like royalty. We are open and honest with each other, and drama drives us crazy. We work a huge chunk of our life, so let’s make it fun and challenging. There is no room for big egos, and people that subtly prop themselves up or brag.

We seriously don’t consider it “just a job!” It’s a career that you will care about! Check out our “It’s not Just a Job video

Our strong culture is what is growing our company, and we will not let that fade. We know that if we lose focus of our employees, we will lose the culture. We are not perfect, and likely never will be. However, if we have a constant line of communication with all employees we will see where our areas of improvements are. Things we do to make sure that communication is high:

  • Weekly departmental meetings. 
  • Leadership and management training
  • Monthly company meetings
  • Full transparency on the companies goals, and how we are getting there.
  • Quarterly 1:1 coffee dates with all employees. This is not a performance review, but a conversation about what the employees are liking, and not liking.

On the horizon (3-5 years) we hope to accomplish the following.

  • Fully established team in our second location (Lacey, Wa)
  • Our sister company Cascade Supply is on its own with separate teams, space, business plan.
  • New CFD Headquarters
  • Online design and purchase capability that our customers love!

We love, and prefer the in-office connection. We would never say NEVER to remote, and we have had employees that have worked remote for periods of time. We would consider this on a case by case basis, and just reach out if you want to learn more. 

Right now, we have around 40 employees! You can check them out here:

There are many career paths within our company. We have alot of growth opportunity in all of the following positions.

  • Craftsman
  • Design
  • Welders/Fabrication
  • Sales/ Estimating
  • Marketing / Video
  • Project Management
  • Software Design / IT
  • Business Management
  • Operation Management
  • Much More!

We will provide you with all the tools and CFD merch you will need to work! You just need to show up on-time with sturdy pants, a CFD t-shirt, work boots, a fired-up attitude, and be ready to learn! If you can do this, we will take good care of you as you join the team!

Yes, we absolutely do! We want everyone on the team to be reliable and safe so it’s important to us that everyone is drug tested! If you can’t pass a drug test, you might just want to pass on CFD.
