Despite a mass exodus of baby boomers retiring from the HVAC service industry, here at Burgeson's Heating and Air Conditioning we've managed to bring in a new breed of motivated individuals. Since January 2015, we've added 36 people to our team. Anyone from a seasoned technician to a high school novice is a promising investment to our company. In fact, we've made it our mission to put as much emphasis on nurturing new hires as we do in providing high-quality service.
When a company boasts a sizeable group of long-term employees, it usually means that employee satisfaction is good. From the moment our employees start working for us to the moment they retire, we provide tremendous growth and training opportunities. This is not only an investment in Burgeson's, but also a safeguard for homeowners who want to deal with a contractor of high caliber and integrity.
