This question is mostly for guys who have been in the trade a while do you find there's less refrigeration mechanics in general then there use to be. Does not matter if there terrible or excellent at being a mechanic just less in general. I've only been in the trade about 8 to 9 years and I've been in 5 company's and it seems like as time went on the resume stack at each company had less mechanics and just more apprentice applicants. That and in the last two or three years there are job offerings for all mechanics regularly even if you did not apply. The company I currently work for hired me only about six months ago and want more mechanics but the resume stack is like 45 deep with not one mechanic in the list. Maybe more Mechanics are retiring then there are apprenticeship completions?
