    Forum Rules

    I am not quite sure if you are intentionally being sarcastic or trying to be funny. But after reading some of your posts I think that a review of the rules are needed.

    Please read them.

    you dont sound very nice to work for Kevin.
    Im sorry you cant find good help, or cant hold onto them or develop them into being good help or get tired of them, since theyre so tired of working under stressfull unappreciated conditions so to speak, but getting angry doesnt help the employee or the employer.
    if they dont work out then fine!
    but when a company goes through alot of employee, its ususally a management problem!
    and it doesnt take a companyman to tell you that!
    hopefully putting on your tools or some time to reflect will help you thats self reflecting!
    3 days are helpful!
    if i come to work for you would you act like this?

    It's too bad that so many owners and managers have such a dim view of the HVAC tech. So sorry you have issues. There are good techs and bad. Treat your help like their human beings and word gets out. No problem finding good help. Treat your techs like dirt, word gets out- big problem finding good techs. See its a sybiotic relationship
    (Oops! did I use a big word? I forgot, I'm supposed to be a stupid, good-for-nothing HVAC tech.)

    Good try, however, you removed any doubt as to your level of intelligence with the improper use of "their" when the conjucnction "they're" is the proper application. As old Gump would say, "Stupid is as stupid does".

    After all, I am a stupid technician in the service of my pimp HVAc overlords. I only saw the word written on a report somewhere by our sevice manager who doubles as a nuclear physicist as a hobby.

    Bored today (tropical storm and all) so I think I'll say something.

    I have interviewed about 20 people since I have taken on a management role, and have found about 50% to be liars.
    I have been a tech for 14 years and this year became a Service Manager. The last interview I had, the guy's resume looked awesome, and when asked technical questions he knew his stuff. I was thinking “COOL!! I got a winner here!!" Before the interview was over I asked three questions that I ask all interviewees.

    1) Do you have a clean driving record?

    2) Can you pass a drug screen?

    3) Can you pass a criminal background check?

    He answered yes to all.
    .....Later that week.... His drug test came back positive for marijuana. Personally I don't care what one does in there free time, but to lie, and waste his time (not to mention mine, and the money to take the test) Just doesn’t make sense to me. When I asked him about it he said " I smoked that s#!t a month and a half ago, thought it would be out of my system by now."
    So....if you don't understand why some of us are skeptical, maybe this will shed a little light. I guess it goes back to what someone else on this site said, if there looking for a job, there looking for a reason. Don't get me wrong, of the ones I have hired, they are good techs and they had some crazy stuff happen to them. (Kind of like markettech)
    After finding out our second born was also a boy, my wife asked "why are you sooooooo happy" to which I replied; "2 of those things are easier to keep up with than 20,000!"

    you did'nt put all your eggs in one basket?
    sounds like the expression, if you want a job done right , you might have to do it yourself?
    and out of 14 yrs of service you never lied, not even 50% of those look at how bad he is and look at how good i am years?
    personally i wouldnt get you wrong, theres some crazy stuff that happens, especially to techs.
    if thats shocking out of 14 yrs of service, then jc penny jewlery dept might be the answer to you, you might get the apps youre looking for, or a bank!

    Okay, sounds to me like someone pissed in your Wheaties. Seams like no-matter who says something, you always have something negative to say in return. I never said anything about myself. To set the record straight....sure I told my share of whoppers, but when it came to my abilities as a tech, honesty was always the safest policy. It only took once getting caught telling a fib about EMS controls to realize that an extra buck wasn't worth not being trusted and possibly getting fired over. Also...there were several guys I thought I was better than, still do...but I still don't know it all, have to refer to manuals, call tech support, and look at the good old modern refrigeration book from time to time, hell, if none of that cuts it I call my boss!! Imagine that!! Now that you have gotten the response that you were looking for, how about I try to get a response....Do you know how to finish a thought? Do you talk that kind of gibberish to everyone?
