    Hey, maxster, you seem to be well informed. How come Honeywell and Johnson Controls call their BAS Techs - Service Techs? For a while, even the UA (even on one of it's symbols) has us called Service Techs, but HII and JCI didn't honor this. HII calls us Service Fitters and JCI calls us Service Mechanics. To both these companies a Service Tech is a BAS Tech, not an HVACR Service Tech.

    did you ever catch the labels JCI had on techs couple of years before the York buy outon there website/careers. i wondered who the hell i was at one point i ended up PASTE'g my resume on JCI careers to any and all.Honeywell didn't see there place,but went on an interview couple of months ago..... they were IBEW Local #3 union HVAC techs covering the NYC,upstate and LI areas doing control work and hvac servcie.now that was a scary site to imagine ever see an union electrican using a meter to ring out fuses....forgettaboutiit..and talk about.....fagaizzzed!the Trane factory/IR has to be juicing up the groups to cycle the bodies out with all these listings i see.

    The current JCI posting is something like "Chiller Mechanic Journeyman Truck Based Service (Union)", then after the description it states "This is a bargaining unit position." Carrier BS&S, Honeywell BS and Siemens BT don't post their MES Union positions on any of their career sites anymore. How's is one suppost to know if they're hiring?!

    i think they want to reinvent you,like they tried to do with YORKkeep in mind JCI only knows controls not the actual hvac industry.that's why they squeezed all the lead techs out then shut the tech help group down in Florida.they want to tell you....this is how you run a hvac company.when i was with YORK/NYC the YORK factory took 50% of all contract money right off the top of renewed buildings service..can't imagine what JCI is blood sucking these days
