Yearly, Ryan Poust has been invited back to Sussex County Technical School to participate in a program for the students. He does “Mock” interviews with the students and instructs them on what to expect at an interview with a potential employer. Through the years, we have been able to hire 3 HVAC students who are still with us today. We love hiring young, eager employees who are willing to be molded to do things the “Poust Way” – Be honest, be neat, do a quality job, make sure the customer feels they are getting a value for their money.

The Sussex County Technical School, a school of choice, in partnership with family, community, business, industry and institutions of higher learning, empowers secondary and adult students to become self-directed learners and active participants in their community by providing a competitive advantage to pursue ANY career opportunity.
