“Technical abilities are very important to us when hiring a candidate, but communication skills and attitude are equally important. Some of the traits that we look for in a candidate are communicators, thinkers, problem solvers, innovators and leaders. We are willing to train certain skills, but we are not able to train positive attitudes.” Peter DeGennaro, Vice President, Finance & Administration
John Colborne, Service Advisor/Senior Technician has been with Wilkinson since 1989. He offers the following advice to potential candidates: “The trade has seen so many changes over the short number of years I have been doing it. When coming into the trade, a technician should want to learn and retain everything they can, because I can promise they will need this knowledge some 20 degree night when they have to get the heat on.”
Stephen Mowles, Service Advisor/Senior Technician, is also a long-time Wilkinson employee, joining the company in 1988. He provides some information to people starting out in this field: “If you have some mechanical ability, becoming a service technician can be a great career. Show interest, have a curious mind, be inquisitive and genuine and you will always have food on your table and a roof over your head.”
Chris Celino joined Wilkinson in 1990. As a Senior Installation Technician, he also has a few tips: “Working in any of the mechanical trades can be rewarding mentally and financially. On the job, show interest and motivation. Working in the boiler room, you can get a hands on education that you can’t get in any school.”
