“In my previous job, I didn’t get paid much and there was a lot of red tape. The length of time it took to get anything done was quite frustrating. Now that I work for Barnett Plumbing, I feel empowered to do my job, and my financial situation is finally healthy! I’m thankful for a workplace culture that cares a lot about employees’ well being.”

– Phil Barnett
President of Barnett Plumbing & Water Heaters

“But I don’t have any plumbing experience…”

You don’t need any plumbing experience in order to apply for a position at Barnett.

The training for Water Heater Technicians, Customer Service Reps and most other positions take 6 months to a year. After that you will be fully equipped with the knowledge you need to be successful in your position. (Take a look at our job descriptions: WH Tech or CSR. You’ll find an entire section on the skills you’ll use every day and the timeline for acquiring them.)

Even after that first year, you’ll keep learning new skills — we all do. Every employee, from the President on down, spends time in continuing education. A commitment to learning is how we serve more customers and grow the business by double-digit percentages every year.

“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

– Theodore Roosevelt
