so i went to an eight month trade school in which i did very well,
i got hired immediatly out of school into a very large nationwide AC company.
i thought i'd hit the jackpot.
trucks, uniforms , everything paid for , and periodic testing so i could prove myself.
i was a little suspicious when i saw that the company is not a member of the BBB.
the office only has 4 senior techs that know what they are doing , the rest of the guys who work there know almost nothing about AC systems, so i thought it would be better for me.
i drove along with the senior techs and i was shocked to find that no one in the comapny uses micron gauges, some of them even brag that they never use nitrogen,
and no one recovers refrigerant.
they hire people off of the street to do the installation , almost EVERY install i've seen this comapany do had some kind of major problem.
so i hop in the truck they gave me and...<cricket> <cricket> ...no work.
(i was to start out doing PMs)
so even though i have produced some of the highest testing scores in the company, they told me i'm not ready to be a tech,
they have hired people off the street who have claimed they've had years of experience,
these people have DESTROYED peoples systems,
...they've blown compressors...
...one tech even tore apart someone's system and left part of it in the customer's house, the customer was crying.
the company only seems to be interested in hiring terrible techs,
i'm quitting this place.
