What’s Up At Referral
Referral Is Hiring – We Need Your Help!
Our busy spring cleaning season is right around the corner. Referral is hiring a full time cleaning and restoration technician and we need your help finding a good person. These days, it can be difficult to find quality employees. No one knows better than you the kind of person you would be comfortable with working in your home. No experience is necessary. We can train anyone with a positive attitude and a good work ethic. It will take months to train them, but they will have a career for life with a company that has a reputation for doing great work. Learn more about the position and how to apply at www.ReferralCareers.com
If you feel that you might be this special person, or you know of anyone looking for a new employment opportunity, please refer them to us or forward this email to them. If we hire them and they are employed with our company for 90 days, we will send you a $100 finders fee! We really appreciate your help!
Greg’s Two Year Anniversary
Our Restoration Division Manager, Greg, celebrated his two year anniversary with Referral in February. We are so happy to have Greg at Referral. He brings several years of water damage restoration experience to our team. He is a natural leader with a positive attitude. He is also a huge fan of the Colts and Nascar and he loves to go fishing. Thank you for the past two years, Greg!
Brand New Uniforms
Referral’s uniforms have gone through a lot of changes over the years – from blue jumpsuits to red candy stripes to our red button-ups. We recently upgraded our uniforms again! Our new uniforms are a durable red Dri-Fit red polo with our logo on the top left. Our technicians love the way they fit, the way they breathe easy, and that their collars will never curl again!
Testimonial of the Month
“This was my first time using Referral and I will not hesitate to call them again when my rugs need to be cleaned. I had the pleasure of meeting Brent and Greg who did a fabulous job cleaning my very dirty, dog smelling rugs! They also cleaned my stairs which had black GREASE stains on them for about 3-4 years and they all came out. I wish I had taken before and after pic of my stairs. My rugs smell great and look new compared to what they started with! You get what you pay for and these guys went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the great job they did. Also Rose at the office is extremely pleasant to work with and will answer all your questions. This business has very professional, clean and friendly people to help you with all your deep cleaning needs!” – Mrs. Ranti
