Bill Howe Plumbing in San Diego Welcomes First Female Job Corps Apprentice

Multi-award winning Plumbing Company in San Diego excited to support first female in shadow program 

September 30, 2015 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing, one of the largest family-owned and operated companies has been training and supporting the finest San Diego plumbers for 35 years. Since beginning operations in 1980, the company has focused on education for all of their plumbers, and since opening new divisions in heating & air conditioning and restoration and flood services, have added to the training opportunities to all field employees.

In addition to providing opportunity to their own employees, Bill Howe supports a number of students and apprentices within company internships through San Diego Job Corps. San Diego Job Corps is part of the National Job Corps Organization. Locally, the Job Corps program offers students the skills necessary to succeed in a myriad of career paths. Bill Howe has been involved with the San Diego Job Corps for over ten years through mentorship programs, apprenticeships, and the opportunity for Job Corps students to ride along with real San Diego plumbers through their six week shadow program. Students learn all aspects of the trade from customer service, on the job training, plumbing and safety skills, as well as a broad picture of daily life for a plumber.

Since first connecting with San Diego Job Corps, Bill Howe has had hundreds of students pass through the company. Additionally, Bill Howe has hired several students for full time positions. Currently, four former Job Corps students work for the plumbing company in San Diego, one for the restoration division, and one in the HVAC department.

The most recent students participating in the six week apprenticeship are Amanda and Rah. They both love working with their hands and are intrigued by the plumbing trade. Although not the first female field employee at Bill Howe, Amanda is the first female Job Corps student to train with the company’s San Diego plumbers.

“We are proud to welcome Job Corps students to the Bill Howe Family of Companies,” said Tina Howe, Vice President. “They are hard working, eager to learn, and are another step in elevating our great industry.”

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

Restoration & Flood

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
