Lifelong tradesman, multi-skilled builder needs a full-time apprentice. I am the CEO of a small custom home building company, that only builds Passive House Certified homes, the most advanced, low energy homes available today. The homes we build are science based to use little to no energy, last for decades with little maintenance and are the most comfortable home you can live in, bar none.
We are a small, mostly vertically integrated builder, meaning we do most of the serious work ourselves. We have a completely outfitted wood shop, metal working capacities and a finishing shop at our warehouse in Newburgh NY. We MAKE the cabinets as well as install them. We don't just trim a house, we MAKE the trim. Even with the trades that we do subcontract, I often have our people working with them for a time to learn THAT trade as well.
We are beginning a new project (a custom Passive House near Kingston) and have ONE opening right now for a new hire. We advance from within, so there is lots of room for advancement.
Are you THAT person? If so, you are;
Has an excellent work ethic (hard work, accurate work, knows how to listen carefully to instructions, on time.)
Has a burning desire to learn as much from a master woodworker and home builder as they can
Has some ability with basic hand and power tools
Is serious enough about this trade to actually OWN tools, and a way to carry them
Has a reliable car and a clean license
Does not have substance abuse problems
Other than that, you can be whatever color under the rainbow there is, you can love who you choose and if you have made some mistake and have paid your debt to society, and KEEP YOUR NOSE CLEAN, I'm fine with that too.
For the candidate that stays beyond 90 days there are benefits:
Health Savings contribution equal to 5% of your gross wage
Career Development reimbursement of up to $1000 per year

If this sounds like a job that YOU can earn, I want to talk to you.
(you will earn this job or you will not have it for long)
