Bassett Mechanical – Why Work For Us?

Bassett Mechanical is not only a great place to grow and thrive in your career; it’s also a place to truly belong. Our We Answer To You® philosophy says it all: We make promises and we deliver.

Bassett was built on the idea that the welfare of the associate and of the company are tied together. Neither can succeed unless the other prospers. Every associate has an opportunity to participate and contribute. At the same time, everyone has individual responsibility for safety, quality, efficiency and productivity.

We offer challenging opportunities to keep associates engaged and equipped with the tools they need to succeed and grow in their careers. We encourage continued training and growth throughout an associate’s time at Bassett while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Explore our profile for more information about our benefits and compensation, continuing education and leadership opportunities.

Bassett Mechanical is an equal opportunity employer, hiring without regard to race, creed, color, religion, age, sex or national origin.

“The culture is what allows us to provide unparalleled customer service and the highest quality work.”

- Jesse W., Lead Service Tech

Whether it’s going the extra mile for our associates or providing support to our community, at Bassett, We Answer To You®.

Our associates are our families, and we help them in times of need. We’ve had departments make home-cooked meals for an associate whose wife was ill. Associates donated their free time to complete a coworker’s dream project for his family after his unexpected passing. No matter the situation, we take care of our team because we consider them family.

Giving back to the community is simply part of our culture. We support local initiatives and programs through sponsorships, annual gifts and maintaining a strong, vibrant workforce that contributes to the communities in which we live, work, worship and learn.

Our corporate giving program prioritizes programs that create solutions and meet the basic needs of members in our immediate community. Our charitable contributions are also dedicated to supporting the interests and causes of our staff, customers and local partners. We make ongoing contributions to United Way, local human service agencies, nonprofit organizations, schools and environmental groups, and academic and athletic teams in the immediate community.
