Clayton Deeds: American Plumber Story

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!

    Hi guy’s. An alumni from Minuteman Tech plumbing so many years ago and have this positive comment for those who are in a tech looking to become a plumber. Give 100% of your attention to your related class, there isn’t any difference in the way your code is written learn it because everyone has different ways of teaching you the construction end of the trade. 😎🇺🇸
