Plumber Assistant

Are you looking for a job with room for growth?

Are you tired of dead-end jobs where you don’t get the guidance you need?

Do you value quality over quantity?

You could be our next Plumber Assistant!

You might have a little plumbing experience, and that’s great. If you have experience operating an excavator, that’s even better! What if you don’t have any plumbing or excavating experience? No problem! Experience is not required for this position, but a desire to learn the trade is a must.

Medical, Dental, Vision, Long & Short-Term Disability, Life, and Accident and Cancer Insurance with FSA/HSA, as well as a 401(k) retirement plan are all available. We don’t want you to worry about a thing.

How does a company vehicle sound?

Cool job, right?

You’re a hard worker, and you’re dedicated to learning. We’ll make sure you have year-round stability, but we don’t want you to get burnt out! Morris-Jenkins will give you plenty of paid days off, as well as 7 paid holidays.

When you have free time, you should do things you enjoy. Forget about laundry! Let us take care of that by providing uniforms and a free laundry service.

Someday, you could be a Lead Plumbing Installer! You understand that reaching your goals will take perseverance, and you’re willing to put in the time and energy. Even if your goal takes three years to reach—you’re happy knowing you’ll get there and it will be worth it.

Not only are you patient with yourself and your goals, but you also prefer to take your time while working. You believe it’s better to take the time needed to do a great job, rather than rush through something and sacrifice quality.

Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you make friends easily?

Goodness gracious! You’re perfect for this job!

Assistant Plumbing Installers interact with customers all the time, and they’re great at it! Customers needs to know that the person coming to their home to fix their plumbing is someone trustworthy and friendly. Sound like you?

As a Plumber Assistant:

  • You’ll observe and assist in plumbing installations, including water heaters, tankless water heaters, and water filtration systems
  • You’ll provide excellent customer service while properly addressing customer concerns
  • You’ll actively gain knowledge needed to advance further within the company and field

Morris-Jenkins won Charlotte Observer’s “Top Workplace” award in 2016, 2018, and 2019 because it’s such a great place! We treat our employees like family because they are family. We have company breakfasts, fiestas, contests, and more!

Morris-Jenkins is working on changing the view people have of tradesmen, and you could be a part of that! Being a plumber is something you can be proud of. Sewage leaks can lead to disease, and Carbon monoxide (CO) leaks can kill entire families without warning. As a plumber, you can ensure families have safe plumbing—you can save lives.

Ready for the first step on your path to greatness?

Go ahead and put your best foot forward.

Your resume and application are great, but is it really fair to assume a piece of paper truly captures YOU? We don’t think so. As a part of your application, you must complete a Sparkhire one-way video interview! It’s short, simple, and surprisingly fun!
