    Looking to hire HVAC-R installers/techs - South Florida (Broward, Dade, WPB)

    Is it ever difficult finding quality technicians/installers in South Florida, so here it goes:

    Paying from $15-$35/hour

    Must have some experience

    The qualified candidate must have a proficiency in;

    Ability to install packaged and split systems (residential and light commercial)
    replacing compressors, evaporators coils/condenser coils etc
    troubleshooting and installation of all residential and light commercial systems
    proficiency in electrical (running low voltage, to/from panel etc)
    understand building codes for residential
    Standard working hours are 7:00am - 4:30pm. Potential for commission over and above wage. Ability to work with others is a must as installers will work usually with a co-worker/helper (as needed),

    All applicants must have at least 2 years of experience, a valid driver's license, drug-screen, and EPA Certification

    We offer competitive remuneration to all our installers. Uniforms and company trucks provided.

    $35/hour in South East Florida is experienced/quality tech/installer pay; you will find apprentice equivalent pay in this part of America and the state much lower....correct me if I'm mistaken.

    $35/hr in Florida, especially for residential/light commercial work is unheard of. Most guys start out at $12/hr (or less with zero experience starting as an installer helper)

    You got it. Our top range is fairly generous for this part of the State(s).

    Not sure as to the cost of living in Naples, but in many parts of South (East) Florida you can live on $2 a day

    Having moved from the North to the South (east) I do miss unionized labor I won't lie; at least for the skilled trades. Very very missed....and this is coming from the employer.
