We are very careful about who we hire, because our customers deserve the right people coming into their homes and working on their Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove appliances.
We leave nothing to chance by hiring reputable candidates we know are capable of impeccable customer service. We then invest our time and dedication, often up to a year, to train them to our rigorous standards in a process we call the American Appliance University. We even make it a priority to get the technician out to the Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove factory in Madison, WI to learn more about the products they will be servicing. By the time they enter the field and your home, we have shaped our technicians to look, act and think like an American Appliance technician.
Rest assured, you and your Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove appliances are in capable, caring hands.
