Join our team!  We are hiring!



Monk’s Home Improvement is growing and we are always interviewing for quality people to join our sales and production team.



Positions posted 2/14/2013

Positions available:  3 Estimators and 2 Project Managers

This posting will be marked as full filled once these positions are filled.


Monk’s Home Improvements is located in Chatham, NJ and specializes in serving the surrounding towns.  We offer all types of home improvements and maintenance from simple painting and trim installation to full remodeling jobs.  Our goal with our clientele is to become their “go to” company time and time again when they need something taken care of within their home.  Customer service and quality work are paramount to us because each interaction with a customer is only one step in the long-term relationship we want to build with them.


Our estimators and project managers are among the best of the best in the industry.   We provide training and support for our team to increase product knowledge, customer service and a rewarding career path for our employees.  Our company is in the beginning stages of changing the industry and what customers expect from a home improvement company.  We are growing and as we grow there are, and will be, plenty of opportunities for advancement.


We live our lives in other people’s homes, so we are looking for an individual that has the right blend of trust, drive and politeness.  Our reputation is the most valuable thing that we posses and when we add someone to our team, we need to know that they are committed to the same principles that we are.


Our hiring philosophy is to hire great people, offer them the support they need and then get out of their way.  Both positions spend one day in the office per week and the rest in the field.
