The heating company where I work was looking for a new HVAC professional.
The previous one had left because she was relocating to a different place.
My boss invited me to the interviews because I am a heating technician in the same company. However, I have not been working for long. I was to contribute some questions for the interviewee. I have been heading several HVAC installation and heater maintenance jobs over the past few years. Some of the questions I prepared included the types of furnaces available. I also added a question about what the duties of a heating specialist are regarding providing indoor comfort to their customers. Most novice techs neglect the subject of regulators, including the popular wireless thermostats. They needed to be made aware of the problems of a regulator or how to fix them. The interviews went great, and I enjoyed seeing how much the interviewees knew about the heating repair. The company deals with electric heaters, their sale, installation, and maintenance. Therefore there were multiple questions regarding such heating devices. A young man with a ponytail came in and was looking to fill the position. He knew much about heating equipment and outlined a list of energy-saving tips he would share with his customers if he joined our heating dealership. He had only been in the trade for a couple of months. He wrapped up the interview session by showing his skill in installing quality HEPA filters and outlining various things that would cause a fireplace not to light. We shortlisted three that would go to the final round as we assessed the interviewees. The final round involved showing their customer service skills. I was excited to be part of the process and could not wait to welcome my new colleague.
