AMAC Electric (2004) Ltd. offers a full suite of residential, commercial, and agricultural electrical and plumbing services.
“We usually serve the area from Charlottetown and east, but we have landed a contract in Summerside, and we need to hire more people,” says Devan Smith, Office Manager.
“We are a small company, so our staff gets a wide variety of experience working on various projects, from agriculture to building apartments and houses.”
There are 17 employees – five Journeymen Electricians, seven Apprentice Electricians, a Journeyman Plumber, three Apprentice Plumbers, and office staff. Devan is the Office Manager, doing payroll, putting together work orders, and other administrative tasks.
“We hire Apprentices and Journeymen in all stages of their careers, from their first block, with limited experience, up to experienced Journeymen,” says Devan.
“We do need more skilled Journeyman to help train our newer staff. Each of our Journeymen is training an Apprentice, and hopefully, in the long run, we will end up with some more experienced Journeymen. These are the hardest positions to fill.”
