Hiring a maintenance professional can be difficult, expensive work. That’s why you need to know precisely what you need from a candidate for the job. Here are some things to prioritize when you’re looking for your perfect maintenance professional:
Certified and Licensed
You’re hiring someone who will be repairing complex, expensive systems, so first of all, you’ll want to ensure that every prospective candidate has the proper certifications and licenses to carry out such work. Without a license or a permit, there is no guarantee of quality, and the company is opened to different kinds of legal liability. Don’t get too excited at the lower wages unlicensed maintenance workers ask for. If they make a mistake, it might turn into a much more expensive problem than you’d anticipated.
People with good interpersonal skills know how to deal with complicated, stressful issues with grace. They can keep their cool during problems and are well-respected by their colleagues and management. Ensure that your candidate possesses these characteristics by checking their references and speaking to former clients or managers.
Attention to Detail
From your property to the people who work in it, the perfect maintenance professional will be able to provide you with the skillful and attentive service you and your employees require. Sloppy maintenance work can be dangerous.
