Carpet Cleaning Technician
Hello, and thank you for your interest in employment with my company, A-1 Carpet Cleaners. You could be well on your way to a very rewarding experience. The company is enjoying some tremendous growth, and we are looking for quality people to join our team.
I would like to begin by telling you a little bit about our background, who we are, and what we stand for. My name is Joseph Ray and I am the owner of the company. I started A-1 Carpet Cleaners in April 1982. We now employ two full-time cleaning technicians in addition to our secretary. My plan is to add another van in the spring of 2003. As you can see, we are still a small business, and we all prefer to keep it that way. Everyone involved is a big part of the business and we want to keep a tight camaraderie between us. As the owner I am very involved in the day-to-day operation of the business and am always there for anyone that needs my assistance. This is how I prefer that the business would continue to run. Everyone else on the team prefers it this way as well.
After twenty years in business, we now have over 2,400 of the most awesome clients that we work for on a regular basis, and this number continues to grow on a daily basis. Our number one goal is to provide the best possible service to our clients so that we are the cleaning company of choice in the area. This is the reason we are growing so quickly. The service we provide our clients is the absolute best available. Everyone on our team is committed to this goal and does whatever is necessary to accomplish this on a daily basis.
As you can see from this website, we guarantee "The Most Thorough Cleaning Ever, or It's FREE!" We make this bold offer in everything we do, and we stand behind this offer 100%. We use the best equipment, the best supplies, and have the best training. We offer our team members everything they need to be a success in the positions they hold with A-1 Carpet Cleaners. But in order to make this all come together, the final link is you. None of this would even be possible without the help of all of the people on our team who take great pride in their work. If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of, browse my Website to make sure that you subscribe to the same ethics as I do, and then take the steps necessary to find out if you are qualified to be a part of our team.
The position of Carpet Cleaning Technician for A-1 Carpet Cleaners is a very rewarding experience for the team member, as well as the clients that you come into contact with. No previous carpet cleaning experience is required, but your ability to work with people is a must. More important than being a carpet cleaning technician, you must be proficient in working with and communicating with the clients that we perform services for.
I need good people to train to be future route managers. I'll pay up to $10.00 per hour to start if you have the right background...a little less if you have no background at all. You will also earn bonuses. You'll learn by doing, from the bottom up. Most of all, I want to give you the chance to grow with us.
Does This Sound Like You? If So, You May Be Just Who I'm Looking For!
You're bright, energetic, and looking for a career with a future. You're not into working all day on computers. You've tried college but "book studying" is not your thing. You're a high-energy person and get satisfaction from working with your hands...But you want more than just a job as a laborer with no future. You like people and enjoy making them happy. You're not into the dead-end drug scene.
The following is a list of skills that you must bring with you in order to join our team: The desire to be taught, and the ability to learn from others. A neat appearance that is presentable, as you will be a guest in our client's homes. You are honest and trustworthy. You are a person of your word and want to be an accountable member of a fantastic team. A good work ethic, as carpet cleaning definitely involves manual labor. A valid state driver's license and a good driving record. The ability to have fun. This is a very enjoyable place to work.
The following is a list of the skills you will learn during your first 90 days of training in order to be a successful member of our team: You will learn how to effectively communicate with people. You will become a teacher to our clients that they will respect and trust. You will be in the process of learning proper cleaning methods and becoming an expert in the field. This will also include instruction by IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification) and certification testing that will be paid for by the company. For more information about the IICRC, you can go to www.iicrc.org. You will become an integral part of a team where your voice is heard and respected.
