WaterWork Plumbing Seeks Trained Professionals as Worker Shortage Looms

The plumbing industry is wrought with challenges as it is becoming more difficult to find workers with the proper skills to take on this job, which is something hopes to change

— In 2012, a total of 53 percent of the skilled-trade employees in the United States, which includes plumbers, were over the age of 45. Additionally, 18.6 percent of these workers were between the ages of 55 and 64. The shortage of skilled, trade-specific workers is one that is real and getting worse with each passing year, which is why many companies are taking action.

WaterWork Plumbing has launched a campaign to actively search and add more master plumbers and experienced plumbing apprentices to their team due to the rapid growth the industry is experiencing.

“At WaterWork we have extremely high standards when it comes to training and customer service,” stated company representative David Greylen. “We are dedicated to ensuring all of our plumbers are top of the line and the best of the best by providing stringent requirements and training. However, once in the desired position, we offer a full range of benefits, making this job more than lucrative for each of our employees.”

According to construction companies and other industries that regularly hire and rely on these skilled workers, the number of people coming into the industries is just not meeting the demand. More of the younger generation is moving toward tech-based work opportunities, leaving skilled-trades out in the cold.

“WaterWork Plumbing is encouraging individuals of all ages to apply today for a position,” continued Greylen. “We have positions for those at the very beginning of their career, as well as master plumbers. Our hope is to provide the training necessary to provide an influx of skilled plumbers in this industry.”

Additional information about securing a job with WaterWork Plumbing is available by visiting the company’s website. The application process is fairly easy and the benefits and salaries being offered are more than generous.


WaterWork Plumbing was originally opened in 2006. At this time, it was a one-truck operation, but thanks to the continuous growth of the company, there are now seven, fully-equipped trucks available to answer service calls. The plumbing professionals at WaterWork Plumbing are available to respond right away to any emergency plumbing calls, with individuals on call 24/7 in the Metro Detroit area. Additionally, this plumbing company invests in the ongoing training of each staff member to ensure they are able to handle any type of plumbing emergency or situation that occurs. While this is a small company, they offer the same high-quality services that the “big guys” do.
