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 Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
