Flagger Force operates on the critical work of our employees, so ensuring that our team members have opportunities to grow, develop and thrive is necessary to our mission. It’s also a core part of the Flagger Force company culture. What makes working at Flagger Force different? Let’s count the ways.
A Culture of Promotions and Career Advancement
At Flagger Force, our field leaders are promoted from within, which means advancement opportunities arise quickly, and promotions happen fast. Here’s the career lattice for field staff.
- Crew Member (entry-level): Responsible for controlling traffic through work zones. They assist crew leaders in setting up and managing work zones. While this is an entry-level position, people in this role get plenty of training to prepare them for the next level.
- Crew Leader: Crew leaders are responsible for setting up flagging operations, meeting with clients to conduct a pre-job brief, and being a leader on the job site. With this leadership role, crew leaders are assigned a company vehicle with all the necessary cones, signs, and other safety equipment to keep our communities moving. They also receive a company gas card.
- Advanced Crew Leader: With a new role comes new responsibilities! As advanced crew leaders, employees coordinate complex setups on roadways, get access to additional training opportunities, and mentor others to grow in their Flagger Force careers.
- Additional Promotions and Jobs: The opportunities don’t stop there—the next rungs up the ladder branch out to include field operations, risk and safety, training, and more!

Training and Development are Integral to Company Culture
All new crew members receive training through our in-house curriculum. Training programs include flagger certification, basic work zone, lane closure, advanced lane setup, and more. We created educational resources geared specifically toward traffic control professionals to meet the need for standardized and effective safety training. Flagger Force also offers multi-level leadership development courses to prepare staff to grow within the company.
Another Flagger Force development benefit is GEDWorks™, a free program for employees to earn their GED. Flagger Force is committed to helping employees build a solid foundation to grow and become contributing team members. When employees enroll in GEDWorks™, they get customized study plans, access to a bilingual advisor, practice tests, study tools, 1:1 tutoring, and more. This benefit is more than job training, it’s a career launch pad!
And training doesn’t just happen in person at Flagger Force. With nearly 2,000 professionals dispersed across 11 states, remote training and virtual communication help ensure employees always have access to learning and engagement opportunities. That’s why Flagger Force offers an employee communications app, In the Zone (ITZ), to be a one-stop resource for team members. The app also houses our microlearning platform, FF Learn, powered by eduMe, to reinforce learning through personalized lessons delivered straight to their mobile device.
