Here, you’re not just an employee. You’re what makes FZ a great place to work.
At our Core
Who We Are
Professional and personable. Collaborative and caring. It’s who we are, and what we look for in others. For decades, Feyen Zylstra’s electricians, technicians, and engineers have earned the reputation as the best of the best—not only in skill, but in motivation and passion too. We pride ourselves on working with thinkers and doers who care about going above and beyond for our customers and our community.
Who we are and who we are becoming is an intentional choice influenced by these core beliefs:
- Growth is good and will come from differentiating ourselves
- We are responsible for our own outcomes
- Leadership is not a job title
- There is no room for the brilliant jerk
- Results of hard work should be shared and celebrated
- Cultural fit is more important than technical aptitude
“I’ve always felt leadership support for whatever we’re working on. From developing new ways of solving old problems with the latest technology to improving safety and efficiency, we have the support to create change.”
Josh Cogswell — Virtual Design and Construction Manager
We look for talent and potential

At FZ, we have opportunities for everyone, from experienced professionals and tradespeople to entry-level apprentices, interns and co-ops. We give team members the tools, resources, and support they need to get where they want to go, and we reward their achievements along the way.

"Own your path. Don't just think something will be handed to you, if you want something, chase it. Have the conversation. Make the change. I realized that early on in my career and it's made all the difference."
