What Should You Look for in a Skilled Trades Employer?

We Treat Employees Like Family at Giannone

You’ve probably heard by now that the skilled trades are where it’s at if you’re looking for a stable career with no student debt. A shortage of experienced skilled trades professionals means there are jobs aplenty for plumbers, HVAC technicians, electricians and the other trades.

But before you jump in with the first company that offers you a job in the skilled trades, make sure they’re a good fit for you, and that they offer competitive wages, good benefits and a work atmosphere you can call home.

At Joseph Giannone Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, we pride ourselves on being great members of the Philadelphia community, and that means employing the best. We value our service experts and treat them like family, so we can keep them on our team and serving our customers.

A great employer is going to understand that to keep the best, you have to be the best. Here are some things to look for before you join a company.

What are the expectations?

Find out what your job entails before you say yes. Are you expected to sell products to customers? Does the company take 24/7 emergency calls that require all-night shifts? Think long and hard about whether you’re OK with the job description, and if you aren’t, look elsewhere.

How is the work environment?

You’re going to be spending a lot of time with your new employer and teammates, so it’s OK to make sure the work environment is a good match for you. How do you feel about the owner and the managers who interview you? How do they handle issues like job performance and conflicts?

What are the benefits?

An employer who values their team will compensate the team for their work, and they’ll do it well. Great pay and top-notch benefits are a sign of someone who cares about the people who represent them in the field every day, so don’t settle for less than the best.

Giannone is always on the lookout for experienced service experts to join our Philadelphia team, and we have the best benefits and work atmosphere in town. We don’t have a 24-hour on-call schedule, but we do have:

  • Competitive wages
  • Full paid employee health benefits, including dental, vision, medical and prescription
  • Paid holidays
  • Up to four weeks of paid vacation
  • Take-home company vehicle
  • And more!
