    ICEE..... anybody work there? thoughts as a company?

    I got a phone call from ICEE today and they were pretty happy to stumble across my resume, apparently there arent too many techs around here LOOKING for a career. She said she has only gotten a bunch of resumes from people with zero experience.... I was wondering how they are as a company to work for, I am supposed to call them back in the next couple weeks to set up an interview because I am not available untill October. However the lady said that they were interested in having me interview soon anyway!

    I don't know anyone that works there but I have seen one of their trucks around my area. It was a f450 with a service body and a small crane on it. Pretty nice rig.

    The person I spoke to made it sound REALLY enticing, I'm assuming the pay has to be decent at least. Sticky syrup crap must suck, but once you get past that it doesnt seem like a bad gig at all...

    I was just wondering if it was ICEE like the Slurpee.

    yeah. I'm not too sure exactly HOW technical it would be refrigerationwise, or if it would be more just unclogging sticky syrup tubes and crap like that.... Ehhhh I guess an interview cant hurt. lol

    I met a tech from ICEE over the summer. He was changing out a comppresor. Told me they were short handed and had plenty of work. Seemed happy to me and had a nice truck also.

    I hated working on that type of equipment.

    The refrigeration system has to be running exactly right to keep the mix within a very narrow temperature band.

    The syrup/water mix, called Brix, also has to be set precisely.


    A lot of cleaning/maintenance type work to keep them running right.

    I wasn't unhappy when our customer contracted Icee to do their FCB machines.

    @JP I 100% don't know if i'd like dealing with the sticky a$$ syrups and crap like that... guess I'll keep looking while I wait for this interview.

    Heck, I'd rather deal with the sticky than with the goop that grows in most refrigerated cases. You'd be amazed and disgusted to know what is living just a few inches from the food that you eat from grocery stores. At least the sticky crap isn't as likely to kill me or make me ill.

    It's just the machine itself. Zero room for error. Good enough, ISN'T.
