Apprentice Plumbers

Come Work With Us, Not For Us

Stop working at a job you hate. Work with friends in an environment that wants to give you a lot of money and a life-long career!

We don't want to be a pit-stop in your career - We want to be the last job you'll ever have (Because you can't imagine working anywhere else)

Every Day is Amazing!

Summary: Today is awesome! You showed up for work, loaded up the van and have your schedule laid out on your ipad. You've got the education to understand what's wrong at each it's time to roll up your sleeves and put it in action. You drive to the customer's house and the Lead plumber introduces you (as a colleague!) to the homeowner. You and the Lead work together, he teaches you and steps in when you're not confident. You wrap up the first project of the day and get ready to move on to the next house. You're already looking forward to tomorrow!

  • You love to serve others
  • You love to challenge yourself and you want to learn, and even be cross-trained
  • You understand the importance of serving others (your team members and our customers)
  • You understand and are willing to follow our core values:

*As an equal opportunity employer, candidates will receive consideration without discrimination against race, creed, color, sex, national origin, handicap status or veteran status.

Job Duties:

Work with the team: You stay in contact with your supervisor and your team to make sure work orders are completed efficiently - everyone pitches in because it's ultimately about serving the customer. 

Develop your expertise: You install and repair plumbing systems, knowing that you're ultimately helping people live comfortable and safer lives. Over time, you gain a growing expertise at diagnosing problems and understanding how to repair or replace them. You respond to emergencies with safety as your top priority. 

Become a trusted professional: You keep your tools neat, clean, and well-maintained so they’re handy and ready for use and safe. You’ll learn to prepare written materials (e.g. scope of work, work orders, bids, equipment inventory, etc.) because you know that this keeps everyone informed – from the customer to the journeyman to the team back at the office. You look forward to the day when you’re a trusted industry expert with your own apprentices to train.

Job Requirements: 

You love to learn: You have a high school diploma or equivalent. You don’t need experience to apply here but experience is preferred. Most importantly, you have a drive to learn more because you know that it serves everyone – from the customer to the team to yourself. You eagerly complete your apprenticeship requirements and ask, “What’s next?” You’re even willing to be cross-trained in other trades.

You’re a tech-savvy people-person: You love the puzzle and adventure of understanding and completing the technical challenges you’re posed with every day. At the same time, you’re comfortable talking to a homeowner and professionally educating them on what their options are.

You’re ready to work: You have a driver’s license, a ready-to-work attitude, and no problem handling the physical demands of the job – such as lifting heavy equipment or balancing on a ladder. You’re capable of working in enclosed spaces or doing a significant amount of crawling and standing. (Hey, if this is a surprise to you then you probably shouldn’t be an apprentice plumber).

You’re a professional: You are clean, neat, and well-groomed in appearance and you understand that safety is paramount. You won’t work anywhere that is unsafe but you know safety is a two-way street, so you won’t do anything unsafe either.
