Is the Plumbing Industry a Good One?
If you are looking for a stable career, the plumbing industry is essential work that is always in demand. In fact, it is expected to grow exponentially over the next five years. You don’t need to invest thousands of dollars in student loans to become a trusted technician or customer service representative. If you have a GED or highschool diploma and are willing to learn, we can provide you with the on the job training you need to succeed. We also prioritize personal and professional development so you have all the tools necessary to reach your full potential.
Another perk of working in the plumbing industry is that you won’t ever find yourself doing a mindless, thankless job. Plumbing problems are stressful for homeowners. When you arrive at someone’s home to restore peace and safety, you quite literally save the day. No two situations are exactly alike but thanks to your quick thinking and excellent problem solving skills, you always find a way to get the job done. Although getting a paycheck is great, the look of genuine gratitude on the customer’s face reminds you each day that your work matters.
A Typical Day at Barnett
It takes more than just plumbers to provide a seamless experience for our customers and team. Each call is answered by one of our empathetic customer service representatives who calmly listens to the customer’s problem and then clearly communicates with them and the correct technician about how and when we will solve their problem.
Next, our trained plumbers or water heater technicians pull up in one of our fully stocked big yellow trucks to stop plumbing issues from raining on our customer’s day. They perform the necessary repairs or installations while providing excellent customer service. We are trusted and known in the Tri-Valley area because our team is made up of friendly, follow-through pros like you — people who know the importance of hard work and the power of a job well done.
When you encounter a really tough situation, you’re never alone to figure it out. The leadership team and I are always happy to lend a hand or will help you problem solve until we come up with a solution. We also know amazing ideas come from everywhere. Our team is designed to take everyone’s innovative ideas seriously and work together to put them into action. We aren’t here to tell you what to do. All of us work together to figure out how we can do it best.
Work that matters and a supportive team that values your input as much as your work abilities aren’t the only benefits of joining the Barnett team.
