The Work

At Commonwealth Signs, we make custom sign products. The work is not repetitious or boring; each day is different and each project presents new challenges. No two projects are exactly alike.

Salespeople discover client needs and desires, designers come up with ideas which turn into jobs, fabricators make the signs, painters decorate the pieces, assemblers put it all together, installers put it up and service people keep it lit. Support staff and management keep it all going.

Most of our custom signs are installed within a 90-mile radius of Louisville. Our sign company sees them daily and they are a source of pride to all who work here.

The quality and creativity of our personalized signs have a direct and measurable impact on the success of our customers. Our commercial signs are legal, ethical, safe, environmentally friendly and benefit others.

The Environment

Our sign company includes an experienced and knowledgeable staff, and many team members have experience working at other sign companies.

This is very much a team atmosphere.

Management is aggressive but does not set unrealistic expectations.  At Commonwealth Signs, we have no time or energy for politics or playing favorites. Everybody is treated fairly and with respect. Your performance is noted and you are paid accordingly.

Our sign makers are safety conscious. No one is ever asked to do something unsafe or perform tasks in which they are not properly trained.

The Pay

Pay rates are rates are competitive with other sign companies. Individual pay rates are set based on experience and then adjusted each anniversary date based on performance.
