I put my employees FIRST,
customers come second
…Now that might sound like a crazy thing to admit, until you understand what we KNOW is true:
It’s only happy employees that MAKE happy customers!
I’m Scott Vigue, owner of Ben Franklin Plumbers here in Tampa, and we’re always looking for upbeat, super-motivated people to join our amazing Team.
If you’re upbeat and super-motivated? -well that’s even more important to me than having a ton of experience. Because we have incredible training here, but you cannot train ATTITUDE or WORK ETHIC.
So here are some sweet job openings we have available right now with our exceptional crew at Ben Franklin!
Are YOU exceptional?
Plumbing Heroes Welcome!
($60K – $100K+)…
- You’re a Rain Man of Repairs.
- You’re like a Drain Whisperer.
- You feel the NEED to keep a clean truck and clean tools.
- You genuinely like people.
- You insist on doing it right, the FIRST time.
- Customers want to bake brownies for you because they love you so much!
If that’s you, what if I say you will make about $60K right away to start, climbing over time to as much as $100K and beyond with our incredible free training, and that you will do this while working only about 40 hours a week?
Impossible, you say? Well that’s exactly what my Ben Franklin plumbers are doing.
I’m Scott, owner of Benjamin Franklin Plumbers in Tampa, where we’ve been training the smartest, best-paid plumbers in the business for many years.
I hire two kinds of people: the people with the highest skill, as well as the people with the highest work ethic and most eagerness to become exceptional at what they do.
And then I make sure they get the training they need, make the money they deserve and insure they have enough time for their FAMILY.
Because a burned out plumber with an unhappy home life is not the goal. Not my goal anyway. Our goal is to be the BEST, not the cheapest.
The problem is, most really good plumbers are overworked, underpaid, and underappreciated. The other problem is, if you’re only allowed to make average money, you’ll have average enthusiasm, average performance.
But I believe that when you empower a good person and do right by them, they most often rise to the occasion.
And I believe when you’re a great plumber, you ought to be making a lot more money, while maintaining enough free time for your FAMILY.
Ready to rise to the occasion?
Go above and beyond for every customer?
Always do the right thing, get it done right?
Are you that person and that plumber? If so, here’s what you get:
- Guaranteed 40 hr work week
- Full benefits
- 4 weeks REQUIRED VACATION
- $60K to start (rising to $100K + once fully-trained and you’ve become a full blown BADASS, working with others of the same level of badassness as you, doing badass things with all of your badass time off!)
So what’s the catch?
- This is a full time position for a gifted plumber with the right attitude. It is a game changer.
- If you don’t read this posting thoroughly (hint hint), we will never see your resume.
DEATH TO ON CALL!
I believe when you’re overworked you actually get less done, and the quality of your work suffers. That’s why I’ve reduced our on call to a bare minimum.
- You’re an amazing, upbeat, motivated person
- You love LIFE
- You genuinely LIKE people
- You work well alone and with others
- No addicts, abusers or excuse-makers. Basically, no riff-raff. But that’s not you, right?
You don’t need to be able to do calculus and speak French, but morons, whiners, idiots, goobers, lazy people and drama queens need not apply.
You can’t teach the right attitude. You’ve either got it, or you don’t.
JOINING THE TEAM:
Most of the people who work here have been here for several years. This is not a place with a lot of turnover. That should tell you something. This is a truly amazing job for the right person.
Are you one of us?
Do you want to work for people who trust you?
Speaking of which, we greatly value thoroughness and the ability to focus, so we’re putting a special word in this paragraph to weed out sloppy people, half-hearted people, inattentive people and people without a sense of humor. Anyone skimming through job descriptions and blindly blasting out resumes won’t see this line. But you’re actually reading this job description, aren’t you? Nicely done. Put the word, “#HERO” in the subject line of your reply, and we’ll give your resume the same respect you’ve given this job description. We’ll actually read it! Any application that does not have #HERO in the subject line, will be printed out, wadded into a ball, and tossed into the trash via sky hook, nothin’ but net.
Because we believe in full-time careers, not seasonal work. Even if you’re NOT currently looking for a job, if you’re a good plumber, and you believe what we believe? -we should talk.
If you have the personality I described AND pass all those requirements? -reply using that “reply” button up top and give me your story.
I’m serious. I want to read examples of how you’ve gone above and beyond for customers… things you do to keep yourself sharp… how you handle working with teams of people… what this job would mean to you and your family… what your dreams are. Resumes don’t tell me jack. Stories tell me who you are.
Once I get it, I’ll read it over, and contact you if we’re ready to talk.
If you haven’t heard from me in a week, you didn’t get the job. Sorry ‘bout that.
But if you’re the right fit, this really is a place you can shine. If you commit to us, we’ll have your back forever.
You might not be able to get rid of your thirst for excellence. but you CAN get rid of that crumby jackass job you feel stuck in now, and finally get the money, the schedule and the recognition you should.
