    well about 10 minutes of my last reply the install manager called me and said "explain to me about what u put on the internet". i really didnt know which part he was talking about so i had explain. he said that we do not HAVE TO BE THERE at 6:30 but he requests it. i said BUT THAT IS THE SAME THING.
    isnt it?

    so we will see how much more they try to mess with thimgs.i think they're trying to get us closer and closer to full commision pay,in which i dont go for!

    So its 25% of labor only. And only labor thats billable.
    If they do that, then the only people they will have left are crooks. Then the co. can't ***** if the crooks steal everything the co. owns. After all they want crooks. Can't have it both ways.

    well saturday got this call for a maintenance on this house she is the president of the Better Business BUREAU. you would think someone would do good work.

    NOT!


    nice ha!

    so when i replaced the cap. for the comp. i went ahead and extended the wires and mounted the capacitor.i just couldnt have someone think that i did this.



    cant believe someone would do that at this ladys house.

    LOL! I think he was talked to this morning.

    Funny thing my wife was talked to at the same exact time about the "Zero Clearance Puron Units" post of mine I updated last night.

    So she calls me asks where the pix are again. I say "just go back to the hvac site..." and so the office mngmnt at her work saw the crap work that STILL needs more repairing. But then questions her why I post this stuff.

    Rammer's mngmnt and her mngmnt get the same commecnt from me. I wont stop posting. So THEY can stop leaving sloppy sh*t a$$ work behind for us to find constantly!!!

    Damn. If only someone ONCE read installation instructions!!! Or just remounted their new parts. 2/3 of the posts would go away.


    BTW, where rammer works, it's 25% of the TOTAL TICKET minus COST of parts and tax.

    So if someone sells a $80 run cap that is or isn't even bad and spends 30 seconds hanging it by the wires in a box or e-tape, they can make a heck of a lot of money there doing that kind of work.



    That's how the Run Cap Bandit was created!

    Frown

    I am belidgerantly against full commision salary!!!
    Could you imagine a second year tech making as much as a tech thats been in the feild for a number of years doing the right thing, what does that say? "Hey if you sell more, find problems that arent there, you get paid more" that is assinine, it also says, anybody without the balls to stand up and say "thats not right" get the short end of the stick and your experience is no longer required.

    I understand sales is a part of what we do, however, I WILL NOT and DO NOT sell anything that I dont think is necessary. Does a 10 year old hacked system need a LPS or CCH.........NO........I will tell the customer: "Ive noticed a few things your system could use, but at this time I do not recommend it, it would be wise, in fact, to consider purchasing a new system of YOUR choice from a company of YOUR choosing, once this system fails to meet your requirements". "Thank You, for using us and have a good evening!!!"

    In reality, I see these pictures almost at every call on a daily basis. I get the "call backs" because I dont get them.

    Sorry, but I see full commision coming my way in the near future if I dont get away.

    Im done venting.......
    Anything worth doing, is worth doing right......the first time!!!

    yah,
    full commision is b.s. some of the crooks do make alot of money but there are some of us that know its not honest work. payson went behind someone that said caps. need changing and then called in later. so he got sent out there and checked caps. both ways and, both ways where good. (within specs.)

    well today it was not even 4:00pm and office calls asking how long until im done at this call. told her that im going a 2 unit main. and working on an evap. dont really know how long. then she wanted me to pack it up and pull off this job and go to another job to do a 1 unit maintenance! then come back here. i lol and said NO!

    then couple minutes later a so called manager calls asking why i wont pull off and go do that other job,said WILL ONLY TAKE 10 MINUTES TO GET THERE. so i said no it will actually take longer w/ packing up, going there, doing that job,packing up again,driving back over here (away from my house) then unpack tools,set up ladder then go back to work! then he said yah thats what i told the office.
    i thought to my self THEN WHY THE HELL DID YOU CALL ME THEN?
    just now office called again. office h00*er got an attitude w/me saying we have 10 calls left and we need to get them clear. i dont need you to tell me how to do my job!
    just cause i suggested to maybe reschedule some calls.

    i swear they can send monkeys to the moon but these girls dont know how to schedule calls. they book us over 3x's the call than all 10 techs can do in one day.today at 7:00am we had almost 100 calls.

    something needs to change here, and soon!

    Same exact words from Payson last 2 summers. Only its starting earlier every year.

    I want to thank you guys for all the info about how things go at companies.
    I can see things changing slowly where I work. I can see a day when every company out there subs out their techs. Whatever makes more money for the co. is the way of the future. Lots of expenses with liability insurance, much higher labor rates than years ago, gas, medical insurance, leasing vehicles, maintenance on them, customers living paycheck to paycheck and less likely to spend money on maintenance, the high cost of fuel oil and propane.
    The list goes on.
    I don't like surprises so at least seeing what is going on outside my little world I can't say I would be blindsided by some major changes.
    Changes are coming a spoonful at a time. If it were more than that everybody would quit.
    Isn't that how the govt does it? When they first started the income tax it was a penny on the dollar. If they started out taxing everyone 12-28% of their income from the very beginning there would have been a coup.
