“Man, I need to find a better job because there’s no future in what I’m doing now.”
How many times have you said that, or heard someone else say it? As we celebrate the American worker on Labor Day, Climate Control Company wants you to know we have the help wanted sign out right now. The HVAC industry is a great career choice. Consider these HVAC job statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics from 2015:
- Annual Median Pay: $45,110
- Median Hourly Pay: $21.69
- Projected 10 Year Growth: 14% (much faster than average)
Those numbers reflect a growing trend in our country: A shortage of technical workers. The situation is no different here on the Western Slope. When it comes to HVAC contractors in Vail, Aspen, and the surrounding area, we like to call ourselves the problem solvers. Climate Control is always looking for qualified candidates who can enhance that reputation and help our team meet the growing demand.
We are proud of the many skilled HVAC technicians who already work for Climate Control. They are NATE (North American Technician Excellence) certified, which means if you join the team you will be working with the best-of-the-best. In addition, our employees receive constant ongoing training to keep up with the rapidly changing technology. We also stress business fundamentals because our employees are the lifeline connecting us to our clients. As a result, we take the hiring process very seriously and require all of the following:
- Background check
- Drug test
- Clean driving record
In return, we offer competitive wages based on experience, extensive benefits, and a great place to live and work. Entry level HVAC jobs typically require one or two years of study at a trade school, but we do have apprenticeships available allowing you to earn while you learn. HVAC careers are proof you don’t have to attain a four-year college degree to make a future for yourself.
As you contemplate your personal situation this Labor Day, consider making a future for yourself by joining the heating and cooling industry. If you are hard-working, intelligent, and willing to learn, there’s a place for you on the Climate Control Team. You can check out all of our current openings on our website.
