Greatest HVAC Entry Level Job EVER

Morris-Jenkins - Charlotte, NC4.4

Full-time$100,000 a year
We would NEVER lock you up in a cubicle all day.

And we would never say "entry level" and then expect you to have 2 year's experience.

Would you like to get the recognition and pay you deserve?

Do you like working with your hands? Not afraid to get a little dirty?

Is it easy for you to make new friends?

Are you tired of being paid too little?

You deserve better.

You're the perfect "Tech Builder" Trainee—I just know it!

This is your opportunity to change the direction of your life. That can be scary. We get it. But we'll be here for you every step of the way.

"Tech Builder?" You've probably never heard of that. It's just the title we give our trainees until they graduate as HVAC Maintenance Technicians. It usually takes about 8 weeks.

Once you graduate, you'll experience what it's like to be a Carolina hero. If you're from the Carolinas, you're familiar with the disgusting stickiness of a hot summer.

The air is thick with humidity. The sweat never seems to dry. The leather seats of your car make that horrible sound as you peel your legs away.

You want to walk into your wonderfully air-conditioned house. But your AC is broken. Lots of people in the Carolinas experience that situation. That's why YOU – the AC FIXER – are such a hero. HOORAY!

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

You must be wondering how in the world you could possibly be qualified for this job: You're nice. You're friendly. You love helping people. And you're good with your hands, right? That's all you need! We'll give you all the training to do the job, and we'll even pay you during training.

Yes, you read that correctly. We pay you to learn.

We can train you to do this job, but we can't train a person how to be as amazing as you already are.

We pay you a generous hourly rate during training, and after those eight weeks, we'll pay you even more. Once you're in the field, you have a chance to make over $100k in your first year.

Morris-Jenkins takes good care of its people. And we want you to be one of them. HVAC employers can be inconsistent, but at Morris-Jenkins, you're given year-round stability.

Medical, Dental, Vision, Long & Short-Term Disability, Accident, Life, and Cancer Insurance with FSA/HSA, as well as a 401(k) retirement plan are all available. We don't want you to worry about a thing.

You have a driver's license, right? Let us provide you a company vehicle and a gas card.

Cool job, huh?

In addition, you'll get generous paid time off and 7 paid holidays to spend however you want.

Morris-Jenkins believes in making life easy for customers, but that doesn't mean we don't like to make it easy for our employees, too.

Your uniforms are free, and we even have a laundry service.

You'll get plenty of training when you start, and that training and development will never stop as long as you work here. Even our most experienced HVAC technicians benefit from continuous training. If ever you feel stuck or confused, our building is full of amazing people who want to see you succeed and will help you in any way they can.

It's like you start off swimming with those funny little arm floaties in a kiddie pool, and eventually you get to the point where you're the one helping the new kids with the floaties.

Morris-Jenkins was voted as the Charlotte Observer's Top Workplace in 2016 and 2018. People like you wouldn't vote for us to win such an award if we weren't honest about what we provide.

There are a couple requirements, but they aren't your typical job qualifications. 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 Morris-Jenkins 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 labs where you'll build the foundational knowledge you need to get started.
You'll ride along with real Morris-Jenkins technicians. It'll be like riding in a van with Future You. Trippy.
You'll graduate and become a Maintenance Technician, which allows you to start helping people with their HVAC problems, including fixing/replacing heat pumps, gas systems, and air conditioning units.
You need to fill out the online application to be considered, but that's boring, right? We keep it short because you have more interesting things you could be doing. The only downside to a short application is that it doesn't capture your personality.

Let your personality shine by sending us a one-way video interview (in addition to your application) through SparkHire so we can really get to know you:

There's also a super quick, easy personality assessment ( ) you should fill out to give us a better idea of who you really are. You've probably done plenty of applications and interviews in the past where you wish you had more time to let them see the real you, and this is one way you can help us with that.

Ready to make a change for the better?

You are? We were hoping so!
