Mr. Handyman of Kanawha Valley

Home Improvement Technician / Handyman


Charleston, WV


Full Time

How great are you?

If your answer is something like: "I am the greatest!" you may be who we are looking for.

We are on a quest to find expert carpenters with at least 10 years professional trade experience, who can also do basic plumbing, light electric, drywall repair, remodeling, and much more.   We're looking for people who would rather use our company van, who don't want to pay for gas, who want a company credit card, who want a well-trained office staff to book their jobs for them and provide support.  In other words, we're looking for the best in the industry who want to do their best work and be treated with the respect they deserve.

Must be friendly and personable, have excellent communication skills, and take pride in doing a job the right way for our residential and commercial clients.

And again, TEN YEARS TRADE EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED. Working in a bank for 5 years while you do home improvement for your grandma doesn't count. Sorry.

This is a REAL job. Full-time. With an established, successful, professional company. Your spouse will be thrilled.

We aren't looking for sub-contractors for a short job that will leave you unemployed next month. We are looking for you to join our team for the long term! The other guys on the team are not only very nice but they smell okay as well.  On most days.

We specialize in small- to medium-sized jobs in the Charleston area. Something different every day! It could be wood rot repair one day, tiling a bathroom the next, then replacing a ceiling fan, fixing a toilet, installing crown molding, assembling a desk, hanging a mirror, repairing a deck, etc.

We're looking for the best to join us, because honestly, our phone rings off the hook and we need help. Typical hours are 8 am - 5 pm, Monday-Friday. 

Must be drug-free, and be able to pass our background check. That means no criminal history and a nice clean driving record.

Remember, you must have 10 years of experience. We can do math, so don't try to fool us into believing you starting working at age 7 framing houses.  We're on to you.

So, if you are really awesome at what you do and want to join our team of experts doing great work for our neighbors, send us your RESUME and tell us what your favorite tool is!
