    CaptiveAire Systems - Seeking good techs for Virginia Beach AND Richmond, VA

    Hello all,

    I'm the CaptiveAire district service manager here in Richmond VA. I NEED a tech here in Richmond AND another in Virginia Beach. I am absolutely swamped with work.

    CaptiveAire is the largest Commercial Kitchen Ventilation Manufacturer in the United States. I have worked for them for 3 years and will retire with them; God willing. I actually got this job after seeing a posting here at HVACtalk.com! (Thank you SaturatedSutor)

    The two positions that need filled is for a Field Service Technician. I need one in Virginia Beach and another one in Richmond, VA. Any experienced electricians, HVAC tech, TAB techs, and Fire Suppression Techs will be considered. Factory training is provided. This is a salaried position: so no more "feast or famine" kind of schedule and pay like the other companies. Pay reflects your experience and ability to communicate. Pay is definitely above the average for this industry. Relocation may be available for the right technician. Please send me a PM for any questions.

    FYI: I came from Residential HVAC into this company. They are desperate for GOOD technicians, no matter what the background is. They are more than willing to train the right person. I knew nothing about Commercial Kitchen Ventilation when I started.

    If your intersted I will give you a short prelim interview over the phone before I forward you to corporate (to make sure your not going to embarass me during the interview)

    Below is the corporate job description:

    Im also a CaptiveAire district service manager in Tampa FL, I started with Captiveaire just over 3 years ago. I started in Chicago IL and was able to relocate to FL It was my choice to relocate. The company is amazing to work for.
    We also have other location available across the country. You can go to Captiveaire.com and check all the location we are looking for. I know Iowa is open.
    Captiveaire also has a RTU that will take 100% out side air and cool or heat it. You will still be working on HVAC stuff. You also can PM me and I can give you more of the great Benefits working at Captiveaire.
