Preservation Trades Apprentice job, Old Window Revival (Houston, TX)
DESCRIPTION
Seeking individuals who are wanting to enter a new skilled trade and long-term employment opportunity in the Houston historic preservation scene with Old Window Revival.

We are a quickly growing company and offer specialized skills in bringing life and functionality back to windows built before 1950. We use preservation methods which take great care and consideration into prolonging the service life of historic architecture.

The employment/training process runs much like a traditional apprentice model with one hour of "classroom" education a week on topics not covered in on the job training, and an increase in wages/title as specific skill sets are mastered. Because this is a specialized trade, training on the job is substantial and requires proficiency in many skillsets.

Apprentice: 6 months

Journeyman: 1 year

Craftsman: 1 year onward

The apprentice receives a $2 increase after the first six months, then a $2 increase after Journeyman is fulfilled, and $2 increase after Craftsman fulfilled, with opportunity for substantial wage growth and company responsibilities as a Craftsman.

The first six months, the Apprentice can expect to be fulfilling many general labor duties as well as slowly getting exposed to skills such as: safe removal of lead paint, wood finishing, glass glazing, detailed painting, weatherstripping, wood repairs, and fabrication.

This position can be very physically and mentally demanding. Work is performed on both historic properties as well as in an East Houston workshop, split roughly 50/50. There is sometimes heavy lifting, precise and repetitive movements, standing most of the time, and having to wear respirators for a portion of the work.

Requirements:

Must be desiring to enter a new skilled trade with long-term growth opportunities.
Have a personal vehicle
Speak English
Able to work 40 hours per week
Live in Houston

QUALIFICATIONS
Because window restoration is such a specialized trade, no previous experience is expected or required. While other skilled trades apply to the various skill sets we use, preservation trades is very unique in methods and practices.

The type of candidate we are seeking is someone with a passion for growing and learning in a new hands-on craft, a respect for hard work, and a very conscientious detail-oriented mindset.

If you love historic buildings and homes, love hands-on work, have an artistic and detail-oriented bent, value meaningful work, not opposed to physical/mental challenges, thrive on problem-solving, and have an innate curiosity, you will stand out above the rest.

Apprentice Starting: $18/hr.

Schedule is almost always M-F, but some flexibility is needed. There may be occasional overtime.

Please email the following to oldwindowrevival@gmail.com:
