Outstanding Employees Honored at Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning in San Diego

San Diego plumbers and EMS Specialists’ achievements in March recognized at company meeting

April 22, 2016 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe started AM/PM Sewer and Drains in 1980 with a simple mission of offering professional San Diego plumbers at affordable rates and ensuring they maintain the highest level of training and customer service. Starting with one truck, he grew the company for over 35 years and began offering additional services including restoration and flood remediation and heating and air conditioning in San Diego.  The Bill Howe Family of Companies’ success relied on that simple mission and also by creating happy healthy employees, raising the bar on their quality services in the community and giving back through philanthropic efforts and volunteerism.

The Bill Howe Family of Companies’ is dedicated to the advancement and growth of its employees across divisions. They pay for 100 percent of tuition for the four-year Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors’ Journeyman Program, and the heating & air conditioning specialists to attend the two-year certificate program and advanced training throughout the year. They ensure employees have all the tools and resources necessary to excel in their careers to adhere to their mission of caring for employees, and in turn those trained specialists care for customers and the community.

Part of their success in retaining quality employees is through their ample recognition programs. Each month, outstanding employees are honored in four different award categories: Above & Beyond, for employees who take that extra step to help customers, the company and their colleagues, Excellence, presented to the employee (or employees) who demonstrates quality craftsmanship, Leading by Example, for the employee who represents the high standards of Bill Howe, and Customer Service, for the employee who delivers exceptional customer Care.

At the April company meeting, the following employees were presented with the exemplary awards: Michael Plata for Above & Beyond (A&B), Tris Coffin for Customer Service (CS), Daniel Cox for Excellence (E), and Marco Cibrian for Leading by Example (LBE).

Each month, the executive team meets to go over nominations from management, the Plumbing Team Leaders, and office staff. “We have over 150 employees and each one of them meet the high standards and award criteria,” said Tina Howe Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning in San Diego. “It makes the decision process more challenging, and exciting, for us and each month the bar gets set higher.”

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.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

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.
