Careers in Pool Construction

Seeking construction jobs?  You’ve come to the right place.


South Shore Gunite is one of the largest swimming pool builders in the country and we are growing. SSG performs all of their own work by true employees of the company as we do not outsource any phase of construction. Compensation packages offer: health insurance, dental, has workers comp, provides 40 hours PTO in the first year, has a 401K plan with match and allows for education, certifications, and growth. SSG also pays overtime most weeks from the Spring to the Fall. Construction jobs requires discipline and long hours but offers promising growth opportunities.

At SSG, hard work is highly valued. Wages offered are better than most of the country. In addition to monetary rates, we also have plenty of demand for our employees. We employ over 100 construction specialists who have a wide variety of expertise. In fact, Pool Spa & News recently ranked SSG in the top 10 for staff management. Our headquarters in Massachusetts is home of the highest unemployment checks in the country.

Unfortunately we are somewhat a seasonal company meaning that while a good amount of tenured and highly skilled employees work all year round some do have to get laid off for a few months but during those months you can still collect a reasonable unemployment and enjoy some time off before returning in the Spring.

Our company will also help with some travel expenses if you are highly experience and interested in relocating to New England. This offer is for experienced crew leaders only.

If you are seeking employment inside of the SSG Headquarter’s office, please visit our LinkedIn page for current job postings. We are currently hiring in all facets of pool construction including the following areas.

Swimming pool plumbers

Swimming pool plumbers do not need a plumbers license as swimming pools are a closed loop and non-potable water system. This is a great option for someone who has plumbing experience from a parent or short apprenticeship and does not have the means to complete their apprenticeship and gain a plumbers license, and good pool plumbers can make close to what a license plumber makes. A general understand of PVC, pipe glue, and the ability to use basic hand tools such as tape measures, levels, and saws is required.

Swimming pool steel workers

We are also hiring construction jobs in experienced steel workers. You must have some experience field fabricating steel for a swimming pool. Field fabricated means bending and cutting the bars yourself and installing them per plan.

Swimming pool plasterers

Our in-house plaster crew which can always use another experienced person. If you have plaster experience and want to join the team or try to start building a career contact us.

Gunite and Shotcrete crew members and leaders

South Shore Gunite installs both dry mix and wet mix shotcrete on various types of projects. While we install over 10,000 yards a year on swimming pools we also do a lot of work outside of swimming pools to keep you making money. If you’re looking for construction jobs and don’t mind getting dirty contact us.

Heavy equipment operators

We are hiring licensed and experience heavy equipment operators. Must be well versed in excavators, loaders, and skid steers and have an eye for safety. Must also be able to read a plan and follow it.

Truck drivers/ Laborers

While SSG does not have ANY career opportunities in pool construction that are exclusively for truck drivers, we do own more than 10 vehicles that require a Class B or better license. These positions require the driver to drive trucks and move equipment but also help out with pool construction. Pay will be based on experience and willingness to help around. Driving/ laboring is roughly 50/50 which means some days will be 50/50 but other days will be all labor and other days will be all driving.

Our Work Brings Great Reviews


“They build a gorgeous pool. The finished product is exactly what I wanted. I came very close to working with another vendor as I did not think I could afford a quality Gunite pool. I quickly made the switch as SSG worked with me to customize a pool within my price range. Best decision I made and best pool ever! I am very happy with my decision”

“These folks did a great job building and finishing our pool. We also needed them to move the equipment after adding an outbuilding, which they did on time and on budget and without complaining! The service people are friendly, punctual, and very professional. Overall, an excellent customer experience.”

"The staff at SSG went above and beyond to make this pool happen for us, in the least stressful manner possible, amidst a Pandemic that shut down manufacturers, suppliers, deliveries. They worked outdoors in masks in 90 plus degree weather. They designed and created a beautiful backyard oasis for us. SSG is an exceptional company. They do high quality, gorgeous work, and they stand behind their name. They are a FIVE star company!"

"Couldn’t be happier with the whole service from start to finish. The quality of the work was exceptionally good and you can tell that they approach their work with professionalism and enthusiasm. They pay attention to detail and don’t cut corners. The price for the work was very reasonable and they were always responsive and pleasant to work with. Very happy I went with SSG and will be using them again for any future projects/renovations/openings and closings."

"We worked with SSG Pools for the installation of our gunite pool and deck. We found them wonderful to work with and the pool turned out spectacular. Stunning! It is a wonderful gathering space for our family and friends now. SSG Pools has a wonderful and skilled staff. Through the whole process we were in good hands and the pool they built was the one we dreamed about. I highly recommend this company and also love the lifetime warranty."


– Danielle D. | Scituate, MA | Houzz Review

"On time and on budget. I have used South Shore over the last 10+ years on 2 pools I have, one at home the other at my vacation home . They repaired a major problems on one pool that other pool companies had been unable to fixed and they completely rebuilt a second pool starting in April and had the job completed and ready to swim by Memorial day. I also use them for weekly service to make sure things run well. In New England you get 3 months to really enjoy your pool why would trust anyone else."


– Paul D. | Weston & Osterville, MA | Houzz Review

"We just had a beautiful gunite pool and deck completed by South Shore Gunite pools and spa last summer. From the very first meeting at our home they understood what we were looking for and made us feel very comfortable with their ability to deliver a beautiful result. Their attention to detail and their ability to connect us with a wonderful landscape architect guided us through the planning and construction phases. Their work crew was well organized, efficient, pleasant and very respectful of our property. It was an amazing process to watch and an amazing result to enjoy. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality pool company."


– Louis Y. | Orleans, MA | Houzz Review

"SSG was wonderful to work with throughout the pool building process. I anticipated being overwhelmed given that I had never had a pool before, but they helped put my mind at ease with their professionalism and responsiveness to all my needs. Rick (sales) Mark (builder) and Karen (Admin) were outstanding!"


– Michael E. | Pembroke, MA | Houzz Review

"After interviewing 3 pool companies, we chose South Shore Gunite based on their expertise, their willingness to guide us through the process, and their great communication. We chose a filtration system recommended by them that uses an ozonator. Love our pool. Very happy with every step of the way."
