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 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!

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.
