After an in-person interview, approximately how long should I expect to wait for a rejection or an offer?

No more than three business days if multiple interviews are scheduled with qualified candidates so that a fair assessment can be made.

Approximately how long does the full hiring process take from submitting the application to the time of the hiring decision?

Application and resume submission will be followed by an interview, and hiring decisions will be made based on experience, ability, character, and personality. The company will also consider whether the candidate is a good fit, factoring in work schedule, driving record, and seasonality. The applicant is considered for the position and, if not hired upon interview, will be called and notified of their employment status within three business days, expecting the new hire to place a two-week notice to any current employer. The new-hire can begin employment with Adams Mobile Air the next business day or at a time determined by the candidate and hiring manager after the job offer has been made.

Is there anything else you’d like to mention about your hiring process?

At times, we have considered a short-term contract labor appointment to evaluate a candidate so that they/we may get a better idea of the job expectations and experience level to determine the designation of employment. Ask us about this at the time of the interview to see if we are your right fit before you quit! NOTE: We ask that each candidate please give a two-week notice before leaving their current employer as we would ask the same in turn.

Our technicians, Tyler "Hammer" Felts, Jim Kheao, and Jesse Wilson, are the latest techs to become Mobile Air Climate Society (MACS) certified under the EPA's Section 609 of the Clean Air Act for the safe handling of refrigerant. They understand the importance of refrigerant recovery and the effects of improper handling of refrigerants on the ozone layer and climate. To be certified, technicians must be trained by an EPA-approved program and pass a test demonstrating their knowledge in these areas.
