Meet Clayton Deeds from GMP Plumbing.
Read his American Plumber story!
How did you get started in the plumbing trade?
I had been working on motorcycles for a few years prior and the money was never really there. I had always heard trades make great money and heard from a friend that his company was hiring. Went in for an interview and was hired on the spot!
What do you like most about your work as a plumber?
Being able to problem solve unique issues daily and always meeting new customers. They all have great stories about life and it's enjoyable seeing them truly appreciate a problem being resolved!
What advice do you have for the younger generation entering the plumbing trade?
No matter what you're doing always take pride in your work. Make it a habit, even if it's being covered up. People will notice and you will truly standout amongst others. Also come to work clean-cut and dressed professionally. Customers appreciate seeing a tradesman like that. Even if you are a plumber!
