Bill Howe Plumbing Promotes San Diego Journeyman Plumber to Team Leader

Award winning San Diego plumbing continues to promote outstanding employees from within

 January 27, 2016 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe started his San Diego plumbing company as AM/PM Sewer & Drains in 1980. He built what is today, the Bill Howe Family of Companies on a mission to be the best employer in San Diego, provide honest services at a fair price, and give back to the community. When he began operations, Bill was the sole plumber and 37 years later, the company employs over 175 people across three divisions.

In 2014, Bill Howe Plumbing created the Team Leader Position to enhance and oversee the field team. Five positions were created and were opened up to all employees who had been with the company for a year or more. Each employee went through a rigorous interview and application process and the new team leaders were chosen by the executive management team. The program has been successful in welcoming new plumbers and drain techs into the company, improving morale in the field, enhanced communications, customer service, and increased productivity.

In July, the current team leader overseeing the plumbing apprentices had his first child and stepped down from the position opening up the position again for the first time since inception.  Five San Diego plumbers applied for the immediate opening and went through the application and interview process to become the Apprentice Team Leader.

Bill Howe was pleased to ultimately choose Louie Sepulveda, Journeyman San Diego Plumber, who has been with the company since 2006. Louie is active on the Bill Howe Volunteer team, participates in wellness events, and is an asset to the new position. “Louie has expressed interest in moving up in his career at Bill Howe,” said Amber Baynard, Human Resource Manager. “He is an exemplary employee, has a great relationship with his peers, and can be an incredible teacher and resource to our apprentices in the field.”

The Apprentice Team Leader works directly with the Bill Howe apprentice to achieve goals of promotion to technician and success once in their own vehicle. Louise will assist in the completion of the Bill Howe training program, as well as supervising their progress through the four-year San Diego Journeyman Plumbing program through the PHCC.

We are very proud to have watched as Louie has grown and succeeded within the Bill Howe company.,” said Bill Howe President. “He is one of the best in his field and we know he will continue a great tradition of encouraging our field team to succeed and deliver nothing but the best in our community. “

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.
