Morris-Jenkins Heating and Air – Why Work For Us?


Morris-Jenkins is the largest provider of residential air conditioning, heating, and plumbing services in the region and one of the largest in the nation. But we haven’t outgrown our small town beginnings.

Faithfully serving Charlotte for over 59 years

The Morris-Jenkins story starts in 1958, when Luther Morris started with a pick-up truck, a tool shed and a simply philosophy: do what’s right by the customer.

As his business grew, he became known for sales and installations of quality air conditioning and heating systems. Always innovative and pioneering, Luther installed the first Gas Pak in the region. Gas Paks now account for more than 20% of all residential systems in the market.

He grew the business to 12 employees and developed a reputation for honesty and quality before deciding to retire and sell the business to Dewey Jenkins in 1990.

Mr. Jenkins changed the name to Morris-Jenkins and began an emphasis on service that continues to this day. But he did more. He established the company’s core values, with which we still begin every meeting:

  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Fairness
  • Respect

He then added this philosophy which is central to our way of doing business: Make it easy for our customers to do business with us.

That’s why we changed our hours and became the first air conditioning and heating company to offer weekend and evening service at no additional charge. We wanted to make it easy for our customers.

And as customers’ needs have changed, Morris-Jenkins has responded – always making it easy for our customers to do business with us.

That’s the reason we offer:

  • Quick service—even on the busiest of days. We do everything we can to get to you the same day you call.
  • Easy-to-understand, personable technicians. Seriously, we have rules against them using technical mumbo jumbo.
  • Priority service for our VIPs. Enjoy cutting lines? We let you do just that if you’re a Member of our Priority Advantage© maintenance program.
  • Courteous and friendly staff, from top to bottom. What can we say? We take after Mr. Jenkins, himself.

Today Morris-Jenkins is the largest provider of air conditioning and heating services in the region and one of the largest in the nation. But we haven’t outgrown our small town beginnings.

We still provide service one customer at a time. One technician to your home, making every effort to ensure that your system provides safe and efficient heating and cooling. And every time you call you get a live, local person who is concerned about your needs.

Thank you for taking time to read our story. We look forward to getting to know you.

Work at a company that cares about you and your success

Morris-Jenkins is a large company with the heart of a small company. We’re family-owned. We’re close-knit. We believe that the better we take care of our employees, the better they take care of our customers.

We offer great benefits, but you'll love working here for other reasons...

  • We want you to actually enjoy your job.
    Among other things, we throw regular company-wide events (more like parties). And meetings here are a little... different.
  • If you don’t know how to do something, we’ll teach you.
    You'll always have someone to call who can help you figure out anything you might run across. And your training with us never stops.
  • Doing the right thing is the most important thing.
    Our values are honesty, integrity, fairness and respect to every person — from customers to employees.
  • You'll be part of our family.
    We accept you as one of us and will do everything we can to make sure you're successful.

Here's a taste of what it's like to work with us!

    I have been working at Morris-Jenkins Heating and Air full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The endless training and support given to you by everyone in the company is amazing to say the least. Morris-Jenkins puts so much time and effort into making sure that everyone is happy and doesn't feel lost. The core values are some of the best I have ever had the privledge of abiding by. I would high recommend a career with Morris-Jenkins to anyone that wants a change in their life or looking to broaden their skill set.

    Cons

    The hours in the Summer are long. It's air conditioning season so it's to be expected but if you have a strenuous home life, it will be a hard adjustment.

    Advice to Management

    Managment is great! No problems on my end with them!
