Sears Home Services is expanding and we need Appliance Service Technicians throughout the United States.

Although we hire experienced technicians, we also hire and train applicants with less than 1 year of related experience and those just out of trade schools.

Sears Home Services offers thorough Appliance Service Technician Training that teaches you skills necessary to accurately maintain, diagnose and repair appliances and equipment in our customers’ homes. Here’s a video that shows what it looks like to be a fully trained Sears HVAC Technician performing furnace maintenance in a customer’s home:

After completing Appliance Service Technician Training, you’ll have the same confidence that Sears Technician Lennie Arroyo displays in that video.

What Does Sears Appliance Technician Training Consist Of?

Appliance Technician Training begins with safety courses and basic electrical theory. You’ll go through a combination of classroom training and hands-on practice of learned skills. Knowledge and skills are tested throughout the training.

Experienced appliance techs will have the opportunity to test out of basic training and move on to more advanced subjects.

Advanced technical training covers disassembly, diagnosis and repair topics for common appliances that you’ll be servicing. Some advanced technical training resembles the DIY repair help that we provide customers on our Sears PartsDirect website. For example, as an appliance technician, you’ll learn to replace an electric dryer heating element as shown in our How to Replace a Kenmore Electric Dryer Heating Element Video.

You’ll also receive training in customer service and selling techniques. Sears Technicians offer customers value added products and/or services during repair calls.

Once you complete Appliance Technician Training and begin running repair routes, you’ll get ongoing coaching and training from experienced mentors to help you thrive in your career with Sears.
