Job Description

Carpenter - Handyman - General Tradesman - Skilled Craftsman Needed for Immediate Hire - Tons of Property Maintenance - Repair - Improvement - Remodeling - Jobs Are Waiting for You - St. Louis, MO


Are you using your own vehicle and fuel for your own business or donating the wear and tear benefiting another business as a subcontractor or employee watching the odometer spin out of control as you chase around "free estimates"?  If you’re an employee, when was the last time the owner of the company told you "thank you", "great job", "You deserve a bonus" or gave you a gift card/safety incentive for a month without accidents?  If you’re tired of your present situation, we have a better working environment and business model solution for you.


We are a company consisting of a nationwide organization of independently owned dealers that all operate using the same proven successful business model.  We have an incredible support team at our home office that professionally designs and produces all of our printed and online marketing, Tablets are provided by the company to the Service Technicians for work orders, pictures and invoicing along with wireless credit card payment devices to operate completely paperless in the field, and a local office with a team that books most of the residential and commercial jobs for you and provides support when needed.


We provide our service techs new ¾ ton Chevy Express graphic wrapped work vans.  They have factory installed steel locking storage and bin organizer units built in to the back of the vans with no windows in the back or sides and locking cage fronts to discourage theft.  Dual street side clamping single lock ladder racks make ratchet straps obsolete and A/C converters built into the dashboard for charging batteries, running laptops, etc really help.  The company provides a fuel card and a company credit card for picking up materials so you don't have to put any money out of pocket.


We have a ton of referral business both residential and commercial.  We are turning away new work every day because we don't have enough technicians to perform the work fast enough.  We need help right away.


We start compensation based on experience and expertise between $20-$28/hr.  You also have the opportunity for raises/bonuses on regular quarterly reviews.  There is also paid vacation, holidays and your birthday off (or beginning of hunting season, your choice) after a probationary period.  We pay every Friday with direct deposit available.


We do require criminal background checks; we are sending you into people's homes.  If you do have negative info on your record, there are certain exceptions that can be discussed as long as you are up front about it and whatever it may be doesn't affect your job duties.
