Last week I introduced you to Chuck, who, as you all found out, is a great guy that we all love. The story I want to tell you today started over 17 years ago with a young man who started working for ECI at the ripe age of 20. In his own words, he described himself as “immature…” and someone who “…knew nothing about the field.” This week I want you all to meet, Jeremy.
At ECI, one of the things we’re most proud of is the relationships we share with our employees. Each and every one becomes like family to all of us here, and it’s always a pleasure to be able to celebrate their achievements. Some big moments for us recently were when Bob passed his ReadyToWork testing, and when Rich hit his year mark with the company last month. Of course we also had some new additions, Chris and Kris both welcomed new members of their families over the summer. These successes, personal and professional, are what we strive for. Because we value all of our employees, I felt it was important that we help our customers get to know the incredible people who make ECI the awesome place that it is. This week, I want you all to meet Chuck.
When you’re job searching, things can begin to get overwhelming, especially if you’ve been doing it for awhile. There is nothing more disappointing than hearing from a company who is considering you for a position, only to find that they went with another candidate. Often times, the decision to not hire someone may very well have nothing to do with qualifications, but rather perceptions that develop throughout the screening process. Here are some common red flags for recruiters that are easy mistakes anyone can make.
Owning a home comes with a lot of responsibilities. Heating that home is one of them. We know, you're a strong, independant homeowner, and you can handle it. But for when you run into some snags with your furnace, here are some tips on what might be going on and what you can do to fix it:
While it may not feel like it now, winter is coming. Before it gets here, it’s important to consider how you will be heating your home. Think about what it cost you last year. Were you happy with the figure? Were you comfortable with the system? If you weren’t, it’s time to talk about what can be done differently, and I would like to point out a few things for you to consider, or rather one thing; oil.
When you’re looking to gain experience in your field, whether it’s as a sales associate or a marketing specialist, it’s easy to apply only to those businesses that focus solely on what you want to be doing. If your career goals are in marketing, you apply at a marketing firm. It makes sense. Smaller companies who don’t specialize in your particular niche get overlooked, their job descriptions unread because how would working for that HVAC company possibly help build your resume?
This past labor day weekend, if you’re like those of us here at ECI, you were enjoying your long weekend with some outdoor grilling, cracking open a cold one, and spending time with your friends and family during the beautiful weather.
It’s September, and that can mean a lot of different things for people. For some, it means back to school schedules. Others are wicked excited for Oktoberfest brews and pumpkin spice. Here at ECI, it means we’re transitioning from the hum and buzz of A.C. repairs and installations to the maintenance of boilers and oil fills. This year though, fall means something else to us, too.
You may remember last week’s blog entry, Why Isn’t My AC Working? Although the entry focused on possible causes and remedies for why your unit may not be functioning properly, the somewhat comical solution to my problem brought to light a popular technique in the cooling and heating of homes; zoning.
