More About The Appliance Repair Industry
Most of us would be lost without access to our appliances, so when they break down we want someone to call. This is why it is so important to keep the field of appliance repair alive. Traditionally, those who persued a career in appliance repair were able to enter the field right after obtaining their high school diploma or GED and additional training is provided by either the employer or an appliance manufacturer. Although on-the-job training is available, most employers prefer to hire someone who has completed a one or two year vocational or technical program after high school.
The appliance repair industry is an excellent choice for those who like to work with their hands. Home appliance repair technicians install home appliances including refrigerators, dishwashers, washers and dryers, ranges, microwaves, and window air conditioning units.Major appliance installation requires connection to gas or water line, when connections are in place they check for leaks and answer questions regarding the upkeep of the appliance. Because an Appliance Technician travels from home to home to do his or her job, they need to have a good driving record, a clean criminal record, and good customer service skills in addition to knowledge of the various machines they service.
Home Appliance Technicians can make a decent living. Median hourly wages, including commissions, of home appliance repairers were $16.30 in May 2008. Home appliance repair technicians held 49,600 jobs in 2008. This is expected to increase by 2 percent between 2008 and 2018. Part of the reason why the increase is not greater is because it is often difficult for employers in finding qualified applicants, yet another reason why pursuing formal training is a good idea. The Appliance Repair Industry is also a field that lends itself well to self-employment including owning and running your own Mr. Appliance franchise.
