Kay Plumbing Services of Lexington, South Carolina announced they are seeking five qualified candidates to fill their apprenticeship program. The company has recently been voted “Best Plumber for 2019” by Lexington town residents. Its comprehensive program trains candidates in all aspects of the plumbing trade, including installation, repair, and customer service. Apprentices get paid while they get trained.

More information can be found at the company website at https://kayplumbing.com/.

Kay Plumbing currently employs five full-time service plumbers since former apprentice Barrette Grant, who is in his early twenties, graduated from Kay’s program about six months ago.

Barrette encourages interested prospects who “like to work with their hands, interact with homeowners, and are not afraid of working in tight spaces” to come to the office to find out about Kay’s apprenticeship program. They may speak with one of the service plumbers or schedule an interview with the owner, Konrad Orzechowski.

Kay’s program typically lasts about six months to a year, depending on the candidate’s previous experience and how quickly they pick up the various skills needed. The apprentice is assigned to one of the service plumbers and accompanies him to work sites. The service plumber trains the apprentice on the diagnosis and repair of plumbing issues, and how to maintain one’s truck and supplies. Customer service, communicating with the customer, salesmanship, and working with the office staff are also included in the training.

When apprentices are ready, they are allowed to begin jobs and be more hands-on at the work site. They receive regular feedback on their technical, communication and customer service skills. Although apprentices are assigned to one main plumber, there are opportunities to work with the other plumbers as each may specialize in different aspects of the trade.

When the service plumber determines an apprentice is ready and the apprentice is confident of his skills there is one final week of testing and training with the owner, who is a master plumber. Konrad tests the apprentice on customer interaction, diagnosis and repair, and maintenance practices. Apprentices that pass the test are promoted to service plumber and get the use of a company-owned service truck.

New service plumber Barrette Grant said, “I really enjoyed Kay Plumbing’s apprenticeship program. Everyone in the company gave me advice and useful tips and I learned a lot. I’m confident now as a plumber and enjoy what I’m doing. I also like that there’s always something new to learn in plumbing and it’s one area where you’ll always have a job.”
