We were growing as a company and one of the ways I knew we were growing was when I added another professional to our already growing numbers.
The managers had requested that I look for a competent HVAC technician to join our growing HVAC company. This recruit would be helping the technical team in attending to off-site jobs including providing help with indoor comfort. The home comfort business had a streamlined strategy and process when it came to hiring recruits. However, the major attribute is to have little experience working on heat and AC products. The company was expanding its operations and now we would be supplying new HVAC systems, accessories like the thermostats as well as opening a string of commercial HVAC provider stores. We had a reputation to maintain as a company and we needed the new recruit to possess quality skills in handling the quality HVAC equipment and upselling skills too. And so the process began. By the end of the first day, I had received hundreds of applications and some candidates were good for the job and some just did not cut it. I was almost giving up when I found the perfect employee. He had experience working as an HVAC tune-up specialist. He also helped come up with the annual sales analytics of the commercial HVAC for sale promotion in his previous company. Moreover, he was as good with a dial thermostat as with the latest easy-to-use regulators. Finally, he had taken part in the installation process of a ductless HVAC and a furnace at the office of the president. I was relieved to have matched the company with a skilled professional on the first day of recruitment.
