Work-Life Balance

We have established a work-life balance that works for our employees as a company. As much as we love our SERVPRO family, we recognize the importance of having family time. Especially in an industry where you see people during their disasters, which could be difficult for them. When our marketing department hosts one of their multiple events, we encourage our staff to bring the kiddos. We must be able to offer opportunities where our team can show their kids what they do on regular bases. If having this type of balance in your life is a quality you look for in a position, send your resume to jbrecht@SERVPRO.me.
