We’re currently hiring Control Panel Craftsmen at UCEC. As we interview candidates, hire the best and then guide new hires into our apprentice-style program, it’s given me time to reflect on what we’re looking for in new UCEC team members.
The truth is: we would love to find seasoned craftsmen (and women) and put them to work immediately. But this is such a unique field and industry, so it’s pretty rare to find a specialized craftsperson who can hop in and go. People don’t walk in off the streets with the skills we need.
So instead, we train the best candidates to excel in our unique craftsmanship program. We look for a willingness to learn, coupled with responsibility and dependability. Being responsible and dependable is necessary here because our teamwork drives everything we do. We need to know that you’ll get your part of the project done and that you’ll ask for help if you need to.
Are you a flexible problem-solver who is ready to learn something new? Then, we’ll teach you. New hires start from the ground up here. With our emphasis on customer service, we’re all working for one goal: to take care of the customer. We are very focused on the customer experience, so if you’re the type of person who thrives on delivering an excellent end product, you’ll enjoy it here.
The ideal candidate also takes pride in their craftsmanship. They keep a neat work area and they care about the effort they provide each day. Our ideal candidate takes ownership for their part of the project. If they don’t understand something, they ask questions. If they have a great idea, we make every effort to hear those thoughts.
We’re proud to be a part of the Arvada community now for 58 years, and we’re delighted when local people show up and apply to be a part of our team. We work hard, but we have a lot of fun. If this sounds like something you’d like to explore, please send your resume to john [at] ucec [dot] com.
