You mightbe in the wrong state.
I have placed five ads in the last month. Its a good paying job for commercal work. Everyone gets 45-55 hrs a week. And im you're boss, how cool is that?
I have had three responses from people that have worked at an hvac company before. There are plenty of applicants that dont have the experience. I just need an experience d
warm body at this point.
So if ypu ate lookingfor work, head south......

Man I'd really love to do commercial work especially while I'm in school. That's too bad Winter Haven is ~1.5 hours west of me, not that I have the experience you're looking for or anything . Just curious though, do you guys post your ads online? Or in the papers?

Well it's just as difficult starting out as well, I've seen many a job posting asking for 15+ years of experience. And here in Cali at least two of the largest Residential Companies requiring none, because they just want sales people and could care less about any technical abilities. Employers are entitled to choose whoever they want but many times overlook potentially great employees who they can train the way they want the work to be done.
There's a lot of good Workers out there that just need a chance. Among them many returning Veterans. (though i am not one) returning veteran that is .

Well I put out some resume's' last month. I was able to get a new job inside of a week, and I start with the new company this coming Monday. The only drawback (if you can call it that), is I will have to end up moving about 100 miles away from where I'm at. But I lived in that area before, so in some ways its like going back home again.
Fun part is I've had to turn down several job offers since commiting to the new company.When you do a job, Always make it easier for the next guy, because you may be the next guy working on it.

I remember my 20's and working on mall roof tops strapping an ice filled towel on my head just to cool off.... and that was here in MI.
There is no way I could do that in my forties.
Anyway, Im sure the OP will find some good applicants soon."If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding

You get used to it. Actually not but you do get acclimated. My young new apprentice has been impressive so far but the true test is yet to come. Weve only seen about 95 deg so far and 75% humidity. Once it hits 100 with 85% humidity life gets pretty rough around here. Hes 23, served in Iraq, and claims to be able to handle the heat. Ive got my fingers crossed
