Looking for a career that offers plenty of variety, job security, and an excellent steady income? You’ve just described some of the benefits of being in the garage door industry and now (maybe more than ever) is an ideal time to get started on this career path.
There was already a shortage of skilled tradespeople in Northern California before the pandemic, and now the shortage is even greater. That means there are plenty of opportunities to stay working and advance in your career as a garage door technician.
Here’s what you can expect
Job variety. In this field, every day is different, which means you’ll get a chance to put all your skills to good use. The possibilities are endless. So, if you don’t like performing the same tasks every day, this job is for you.
Stability. Imagine living in a world without teachers or doctors. Impossible, right? Some professions are absolutely essential, and that goes for garage door technicians as well. You’ll never have to worry about finding a job in this industry, which is helpful if you have a family to support. And technicians don’t get outsourced, so you won’t have to worry about that, either.
No debt. There’s nothing wrong with getting a four-year degree, but the cost of college can really add up. While many students graduate owing a significant amount of money to Uncle Sam, students who graduate from a trade school usually do not.
Career advancement. At Ramirez Custom Overhead Doors, we encourage our technicians to deepen their knowledge through continuing education and advanced certification. The garage door industry Is constantly evolving, and the more training you have, the higher your salary will likely be.
You can skip the gym. By now you’ve probably read that sitting behind a desk all day can lead to health problems. But that’s not something you’ll have to worry about if you’re a garage door technician. This is a physical profession that lets you get out, move, and stay active. It also requires plenty of critical thinking and problem-solving, so your brain will stay sharp, too.
You get to be a part of a team. The team at Ramirez supports and encourages each other. We truly believe that teamwork is a big part of why we’ve been a leading garage door company in Vacaville for decades. Simply put: we’re a family and our team thrives because of it.
You’ll meet new people. If you’re a “people person,” you’ll love being in this industry. Every day offers technicians a chance to be out in the community, meeting and helping new and longtime customers alike. This means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to make someone’s day a little better. This is definitely not a job you can do remotely from the comfort of your couch!
