Careers FAQ

We opened in January 2005 as Folsom Lake Appliance. In 2007 we incorporated the business and began transitioning to Lake Appliance Repair due to our ever-expanding coverage area outside of the Folsom, CA market.

Between our field technicians and office support staff we have approximately 32 employees. We do not use any subcontractors.

After we receive your resume and cover letter we will review your qualifications to determine if they match the requirements of our open position. If we are satisfied with your submission you will be contacted by one of our hiring managers to discuss the next steps. If your qualifications do not match our position requirements we will retain your application according to state guidelines.

Our hiring managers want to know as much as possible prior to scheduling an interview. Here are some of the following checks that are made when reviewing a resume:

  • Month and year of employment in work histories, plus an explanation in any gaps of employment
  • Years of attendance/graduation of any education, volunteer work, certificates obtained
  • Current contact information
  • Presentation and format of resume
