Home Service Apprentice - GREATEST ENTRY JOB EVER!

Flat Rock, NC

Only 2.5% of people get this job. 

Are you one of the best? 

Let us train you to be a Home Service (Heating, Air, Plumbing and Electrical) Apprentice! 

Are you hoping to avoid the dreaded “inside all day" job?

Are you the friend who puts all their energy into every project you do? Do you have high expectations for yourself?

Do you like working with your hands? PS. You're gonna get dirty and see spiders!

If you couldn't stop nodding your head, you may qualify as a Champion Comfort Experts Apprentice. 

This job isn't for the faint of heart. Not only must you be willing to brave crawl spaces and attics, but you also need to have the undying drive to succeed. You aren't satisfied until you've done your very best (and your best gets better every day).  

No experience necessary. “Entry-level” means you don't have to have experience; just the right aptitude and attitude. The right aptitude means you're good at working with your hands, and the right attitude means you work well with colleagues and customers. As a trained technician, you'll know what's best for customers, and it'll be your job to guide them to making that right choice. 

Champion Comfort Experts apprentices come from all kinds of backgrounds. We have air conditioning and heating techs who used to work in church ministry, some who were in the military, and others who started working right out of high school … You name it! Your background is part of who you are today, but it doesn’t have to dictate who you're going to be tomorrow. 

To you, work is a competition with yourself, and you know that growth requires change. As an installer, the achievement possibilities are endless 

Upon your completion of the apprentice program, you’ll become a MVP. If you’re from the area, you know the disgusting stickiness of a hot summer when the air is so thick with humidity that you feel like you’re drowning and the leather seats of your car make that horrible sound as you peel your legs away. You open your front door, ready for that refreshing blast of cool air. But you’re hit with another wall of heat: your AC is broken. 

Are you beginning to understand the ability to work on home equipment makes you the real MVP? 

Don’t be surprised when the customer brings you lemonade. 

Champion Comfort Experts offers compensation far beyond most other companies. Many of our Technician apprentice graduates are now makinmore than $50k a year. 

Champion Comfort Experts takes good care of its people.  

Medical, Dental, Vision, Long & Short-Term Disability, Life, and Accident and Cancer Insurance with FSA/HSA, as well as a 401(k) retirement plan are all available for free. We don’t want you to worry about anything other than fixing the air conditioner or heating system so that our customer – your customer – can be comfortable again. 

You already have a driver’s license. Let us give you a company vehicle and free uniforms. This job is sounding better and better, right? 

In addition, you’ll get paid time off and 6 paid holidays each year to spend however you want. 

As long as you work at Champion Comfort Experts, your training and development will never stop. Even our most experienced technicians benefit from this ongoing training. Best of all, if ever you feel stuck and aren't sure what to do, you can reach out to a whole building full of amazing people who will help you in any way they can because they want you to succeed. When you're in a customer's home, you're representing all of us, so we've always got your back. 

No degree or experience is necessary, but homebodies wouldn’t like this job. Tight crawlspaces, ladders, snakes, spiders, and occasional awkward confrontations with customers are all things our technicians face on the job. The men and women of Champion Comfort Experts are a brave bunch, but they don’t let that harden their lovable personalities. The most successful technicians are the ones that form the best customer relationships. 

What will you do after you’re hired? 

  • You’ll participate in classes and training where you’ll build the foundational knowledge you need to get started. 

  • You'll go from no experience to pro in only 8-10 weeks! 

  • You’ll ride along with real Champion Comfort Experts technicians. It’ll be like riding in a van with Future You. 

  • You’ll become an experienced home service technician, which allows you to start helping people with their HVAC problems, including fixing/replacing heat pumps, gas systems, and air conditioning units. 

Your resume and application are great, but is it really fair to assume a piece of paper truly captures YOU? We don’t think so. As a part of your application, you must attend one of our monthly all-staff breakfasts so that our team can get the chance to meet you.
