Bill Howe Plumbing Named Best Places to Work in San Diego 2013

Family-owned and Operated San Diego Plumbing Company Makes Top 100 Best Places List Third Time

Best Places to Work Logo 2013

June 25, 2013, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – For the third time, the Bill Howe Family of Companies has been named one of San Diego’s best places to work by the San Diego Business Journal.   The San Diego plumber, Bill Howe, began his operations in Pacific Beach in 1980 with one truck. The company has since grown into one of the largest family-owned and operated service companies serving San Diego with over 85 service trucks across three divisions: plumbing, heating & air conditioning, and restoration & flood services.

The San Diego Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in San Diego Award is presented to 100 of the “Best” San Diego employers based on a two-part assessment of the company and an in-depth and confidential employee surveys completed by the companies’ employees. The award identifies and recognizes companies exemplifying excellence in the workplace. Results of the assessment and employee responses are analyzed and categorized in eight key focus areas by The Best Companies Group: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training and Development, Pay and Benefits and Overall Engagement.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies has made the list for the third time since the program came to San Diego five years ago. The San Diego plumbing company was recognized in the top 20 in 2010 and made the list a second time in 2011. Bill and Tina Howe remain as an active part of running the family-owned company. Leading by example, they have created an atmosphere engaging 100 percent of the staff in their mission of providing the best services to the local community. They boast a very low rate of turnover and high employee satisfaction; when asked, the majority of employees site “a true family environment” and “a company that cares” as the best part of working for the Bill Howe Family of Companies. Bill and Tina have also added a premium wellness program for the 2013 year to focus on creating a stronger culture of well-being for their employees’ future that has also garnered two workplace wellness awards by the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce and The San Diego Business Journal. In 2012, the San Diego plumbing company made their largest move on their thirty-year history and did not participate in the program.

“Our employees are our biggest asset,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of The Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are honored to learn that we are succeeding in our mission to ensure their health, happiness and success in their careers. We are proud of our team and look forward to continued growth.”

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.
