Originally established in 1997, Tri-Pups, Inc. is a small contracting company engaged in both commercial and residential remodeling, maintenance, and repairs. We are not a niche company. The staff of Tri-Pups, Inc. is cross-trained in most aspects of building construction and maintenance including rough and finish carpentry; drywall installation; painting; minor plumbing, HVAC, and electrical installation and repairs; exterior siding installation; floor and tile installation; window & door installation; demolition work, etc. There are no specialists (i.e. Electricians, Plumbers, HVAC Techs, etc. within our organization). Because we do such a variety of construction activities, we are committed to learning (and teaching) new techniques to help improve quality and efficiency.
Our employment philosophy is to bring employees in on a part-time basis to start. This allows each individual to acclimate to our company as well as insure that the employee is truly committed to our organization. We invest in educating our staff and encourage them to stay with us for many years. Since we normally work Monday-Saturday, we can schedule around our employee’s personal schedules. Most of our part-time employees work with us on weekends or specified days of the week. Several people have continued to work a full-time job and work with us when time allowed. Others have gone to school full-time or have worked another part-time job while with us. When an employee is scheduled for a particular day, they will be given a start time (typically 8am-10am) and told approximately how late we will be working. Should the day go longer than expected, the employee is expected to stay until we have completed what must be done on that day, unless previous arrangements have been made. A typical work day will be 6-10 hours long depending upon our workload.
After an employee has worked with us for a minimum of 4 weeks, we may consider offering the employee a full-time position. Should a full-time position be offered, and the employee accepts, then the employee will be expected to work a minimum of 4 days per week (32 hour minimum). Our work schedule is updated and shared with all employees via an App as jobs are sold and scheduled. Due to circumstances out of our control, there can be last minute changes to the schedule. All employees must have regular access to a mobile phone, tablet, or a computer to receive updates as they occur.
The salary for a Remodeling and Maintenance Assistant is based on experience, but no experience is necessary as we typically train from the ground up. Raises are based upon the performance of the employee, not seniority. Full-time employees are eligible for paid vacations, health care insurance, and other benefits. Those that do a quality job in an efficient manner, have a good attitude, can work well independently as needed, and have a solid attendance record will enjoy working with our company. Unlike some other construction companies, we work year round.
Tri-Pups, Inc. is based in Southfield, but the employees rarely report to the office. Normally, employees are expected to report to the job site which varies from day to day and may change during the course of a normal workday. Therefore, it is required that applicants have a vehicle available for their use throughout the entire workday.
The territory that we service is most of Oakland and Macomb Counties and part of Wayne County.
