    No, we are factory trained service specials that confirm the installation is to design, everything operates within specs, troubleshoot field issues, verify air balance, and commission the jobs if required. We also work with local mechanical contractor to provide them with mechanical pricing on their Captiveaire parts.

    Sorry to repeat but I needed to correct my mistakes.

    It can on occasion but the majority of our service is verification that the end user got what they paid for. It's a great career.

    Its the salary part that sounds suspicious...like performance based pay.

    I am a tech. We are seeking qualified technicians as outlined in the original post. Captive-Aire Systems is very competitive in salary. Salary is based upon the region. Considering this thread is regarding positions throughout North America, that base amount will vary. Anyone with concerns can contact Human Resources to have their questions answered. Profit sharing (bonuses) is generated from "all" profits, not just the profits generated by the technician.

    Sounds like an outstanding gig. Travel requirements?
