Since 1962, Sears Home Services has been a leader in technician repair, support and maintenance with industry leading training and development as its backbone. This story continues as we’re bucking the recessionary trend and announcing a commitment to hire 1000 experienced Repair Services and Maintenance Technicians across the United States this year.

Specialty skills will include: heating and air conditioning, small engine repair, refrigeration systems, and appliance repair.

This decision to ramp up our staff is largely due to increasing demand by the consumer, unpredictable weather behavior, and customer loyalty.

“Sears Home Services has been the trusted name in appliance and HVAC repair for decades, but not just for the consumer,” says Ryan Alexander, leader of in-home repair for Sears Home Services.“Those who are looking to continue, grow, or even begin their career in the repair service industry, would be hard-pressed to find any other company with our level of experience, resources, and expertise to make those career goals a reality. When you’re ready, we’re here for you. Come join us.”
