In addition to providing competitive wages, vacation, holiday and sick pay, as well as health insurance programs, PMS maintains a comprehensive Employee Appreciation Program.

How do you select, screen, and train your employees?

Professional Maintenance Systems’ employees are screened and interviewed prior to being placed on our payroll. Work history, references and employment eligibility are verified and preference is shown to individuals with janitorial experience. Selected candidates participate in our comprehensive janitorial training program which covers everything from customer service to chemical handling. The employee next receives an in-depth, site-specific orientation at his assigned location. Professional Maintenance Systems is always looking for employees who exemplify our high standards for performance and demonstrate supervisory skills. Many of our crew leaders, supervisors, and managers have been promoted from within. If you are interested in working with us, please call write.
