Geary Pacific – Why Work With Us?


We are a family owned and operated company founded in 1961 by Pat Geary. Pat came to California from Minnesota in 1948, seeking opportunity, and a way to stay out of the cold. He began his career working as an apprentice in the sheet metal industry fabricating sheet metal duct and installing and repairing furnaces. In the early 1950’s, Pat and his uncle started their own contracting business, but over time, Pat became discouraged with the local supply houses constantly trying to sell him things he didn’t need. In 1961, he rented a 2,800 square foot lemon and orange packing house and began what is today Geary Pacific. Today, the company is run by 3 of Pat’s 4 children and their spouses, with the 3rd generation following closely in their footsteps. We have 30 locations in 8 states across the country working to partner with our customers to meet all their HVAC needs.

With modernization comes change. One thing that hasn't changed though is our Business Philosophy. Geary Pacific believes in treating the customer how they want to be treated. We sell only to Contractors licensed to install the products we handle, because we believe that it is the expertise of the contractor as much as it is the quality of our products that lead to a successful Heating and Air Conditioning System.

February 2019 marked our 58th year in the HVAC Wholesale Distribution Business. We are proud to be a family owned business with the second generation firmly committed to carrying on our tradition of service excellence. We owe our success to our many fine customers, to the manufacturers we represent, and to the dedication of our people to these customers and manufacturers.

At Geary Pacific, we are always looking to grow our team with customer-focused people that enjoy working in a positive, fast-paced environment.   Throughout our 25 branches in 7 states, our employees work in high-energy surroundings founded on customer service, teamwork, integrity, and growth potential.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Geary Pacific (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    The interviewer will be a regional sales manager. After several casual meetings, it was clear to me they were interested. They will have you take a caliper test if they are ready to hire you. Surprisingly, most people won’t pass that test.
