Attention: Residential HVAC Techs
Ready to take the next step in your career?
- Are you seeking a career that challenges you and brings new problems to solve every day?
- Do you want to work on more complex and interesting equipment?
- Are you looking to join a team-oriented company that cares about its employees and clients?
If you answered yes to these questions, you’re likely a great fit for the commercial HVAC field – even if you’re currently in the residential HVAC industry!
We are actively looking for residential HVAC technicians with 3-5 years of experience who are seeking more challenging equipment to work on.
If this describes you, take a look at Reitmeier as your next big opportunity! We are rapidly growing and adding several HVAC field technician positions to our company.
“Field technicians who have experience with residential HVAC bring tremendous value to Reitmeier,” says Reitmeier President Jeff Nusz. “We appreciate the mechanical knowledge and expertise they bring to the table, and we do all we can to provide a seamless transition to commercial systems.”
Are you NATE-certified? We want to talk to you!
If you’re a residential tech who is NATE certified, we’re especially excited to hear from you! This certification shows that you’re a self-starter, and your previous training and education will give you a quicker ramp-up time. Be sure to mention your NATE-certification status in your application or in conversation with one of our team members.
Reitmeier trains you in commercial HVAC
Our supportive process
At Reitmeier, we have a supportive training environment that’s designed to quickly bring you up to speed. We don’t expect you to be an expert in commercial HVAC immediately – we know it takes time to learn about new equipment and our culture.
That’s why we’ve developed a careful process to help you learn the commercial HVAC trade and to help you create a custom career path that best suits your personality and interests. Part of this investment includes our program that pairs you with an experienced mentor who will assist you in learning real-world commercial HVAC issues – and even have you ride along on jobs! This senior-level tech will also provide both on-site and phone support when you need it.
In 2014, we launched our own innovative continuing education program, Reitmeier University (RU). Our curriculum is designed to teach our employees about commercial HVAC while also orienting team members to our culture. RU will train you on specific issues involving commercial equipment servicing, troubleshooting, and safety.
“I chose to make Reitmeier my place of employment because of their commitment to higher technical education and mentoring programs,” says Manuel, one of our 2016 Reitmeier University graduates. “This type of educational training is not something that is provided by any other local HVAC contractor.”
The benefits of commercial HVAC at Reitmeier
The right-fit residential HVAC techs who come to our company will get the following benefits:
Licensing and certification
Did you know that the commercial HVAC industry requires certain licenses to work in the field? The good news is Reitmeier provides all the resources you need to earn these accreditations. We’re proud to have an educational director on staff who will give you the support you need to pass any licensing test or certification.
Plus, Reitmeier pays for your education to obtain the following licensing and certifications – and in some cases, we pay for the licensing fees as well:
- OSHA 10 Certification
- Brazing/Welding Certification
- EPA 608 Universal
- Lift Certification
- Crane Safety Certification
- Boiler License
- LEB Electrical License
- CEU for current licenses
- CPR/First aid Certification
Financial help for relocation
If you’re currently working outside of Oregon, we want to make your transition to Reitmeier as easy as possible for you and your family. In most cases, we provide financial assistance for those moving from out-of-state. We invite you to ask for more details during our conversation!
A fantastic culture
Our people are our most valuable asset – as a Reitmeier employee, we’ll show you the appreciation you deserve.
Reitmeier team members take our core values to heart. One of these tenets is to Build Sustainable Relationships – we strive for an environment that is friendly and warm, and we continuously go above and beyond for others both inside and outside the company. We make sure that our company culture builds and fosters a workplace where our employees can feel fulfilled.
“We don’t want to be like every other HVAC company,” said Jeff Nusz, Reitmeier president. “Our ongoing goal is to create an environment where our people can thrive and grow.”
Reitmeier was recognized as the Best Contractor to Work For by Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (ACHR) News in 2014. In addition, SAIF Corporation recognized our company’s commitment to a healthy work-life balance for our staff in their summer magazine.
In all we do at Reitmeier, we strive to live out our mission of Balance. This also involves providing our employees a positive work environment and some of the best benefits in our industry. Commercial HVAC typically pays higher than residential. Plus, in the commercial sphere, you can say goodbye to on-call visits at 3AM and 80+ -hour work weeks. You won’t be held responsible for high-pressure sales or tracking company margins – our fantastic office staff takes care of all invoicing.
