Problem Solving Skills: It’s often difficult to trouble shoot what needs to be done to solve a customer’s problem. We are looking for an installer who is resourceful, thinks on their feet, and can complete repairs or installations when conditions are less than ideal or when the answer isn’t obvious.


Customer Service Skills: As the face of our business, interactions with customers are critical. This requires excellent customer service skills both in person and over the phone. We require our installers to have a neat, clean appearance, polite demeanor, and to always conduct themselves in a manner that makes the customer feel confident in our ability to both solve their problem and show we are trustworthy to be on their property.


This skill set also applies to working with coworkers- we ask everyone to be courteous of each other and foster an environment where we can learn together and grow as individuals and as a company.

The service notes provided by an installer sharing the details of each job are used to generate invoices and communicate further needs for the customer. The documentation provided includes time on the job, parts used and any further necessary repairs or recommendations. This helps the office to invoice appropriately and note anything of interest in each customer’s account for future reference.
