    Any Help

    Hello,

    I'm getting nowhere with the job I'm currently at. Nobody wants to let me do anything besides maintain equipment. I have much more qualifications then being a "maintenance guy". NO disrespect to anyone out there that maintains equipment everyday but it just aint my shtick.


    Anybody know how/who to contact at Trane in New York about a job? Seems like I get no where when I apply through their website. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    OR, any other companies hiring at the moment.

    Thanks

    No offense, but you must not look good on paper. Don't worry I must not look good on paper either. Trane NYC is a Union sig, they should be looking to the Local Hall before posting online, or inquire to the Local Hall and post online at the same time. I believe JCSS, HBS and Union TBS & HS branches posting online is not along the Agreement guidelines. Now if the Local can't provide HVACR Techs, that's a different story.

    Swallow your pride, stop being egotistical, do the maintenance and learn as much as you can. In other words study the equipment you are working on and learn from it. All systems have something that needs attention. How long have you been in the field? Are you even a qualified technican? Why would a union company hire someone who is not in the union?

    Just because you perceive it as negative does not mean that it is. Ego is something that we all have to deal with. Ego and pride has been the downfall of many good techs even me. Just because I don't write what you want to hear does not make it any less true. QUOTE=MrHVA;14406911]I guess you didn't read the subject of my post.

    Trane will post job opening on line even in a union market. I think it's IR policy. The Trane office in Miami regularly posted openings on line even though Miami is union. I never used the union to get a job. I always went directly to the contractor, and told the union where I was working. If you're a good tech, you'll always have a job. Anyway, I digress.

    How long ago did you apply on their website? It usually takes 2-3 weeks to get a response. You could always resubmit an application. Are they even hiring? You could always walk in the front door and hand in your resume too. Squeaky wheel gets the grease and all.

    You are like a HVAC God, I think you dont need the union! is the union that needs you, I wish I knew what local you belong to, I would call then and congratulate them for having you.

    I think if I waited on the Locals to get me a job I'd be like the kid in the V-8 Fusion commercial that doesn't want to eat his veggies. Here in the Southwest - West Texas, New Mexico, Southern Arizona, it's more than cutthroat. You have to get your own jobs.

    Mr HVA

    Before we can give you any real advice, we need to know a bit more about you.

    Your words are :
    I have much more qualifications then being a "maintenance guy"
    What qualifications? What kind of equipment are you talking about maintaining?
