you're not going to last long in an apprenticeship if no one wants to work with you. it seems like you're having that problem already.
if your shop tells you to mow the lawn and fetch the coffee, get it done! you're paid by the hour, right? not the complaint? who cares what work you have to knock out!
you're the grunt, it's your job to show up first, work the hardest, and tell some funny stories.

I did my time in the industry and I worked very ard to get my degree and certs. You guys on here think paper means nothing but it does in the real world trust me. I know how to turn a wrench not just a " textbook tech". I strongly believe that changing filters and belts does not make you a good mechanic. It's hog wash. Finding out why the machine is broken, or why did the comp. trip out, or why it's not cooling is what makes a good mech. Repairing the machine and finding out why certain things happen. Honestly if you're telling me you have to time examine a machine while you're PMing it then I'd think that you'd probably get one machine done a day. Which means in my company you're out the door.
The workers here know what type of person I am and they don't want me to excel because they know I will succeed at anything and the company will count on me rather than them. They are threatened by me. But that's ok because trust me. My drive and my work ethics will get me where I need to be.

Truth is, they don't want you to excel because your an arrogant ass... They're probably waiting for you to humble up.
Remember when I said "you think every job you do is beneath you, it will be your demise if not changed".... It is even more true in my eyes after reading this post.
For the record, it has nothing to do with kissing asses, but having a respect that can be felt by everyone you work with. Does not matter how large or small a shop is, this is ALWAYS the case.
Honestly I think until you learn this elementary ideal, you will never be happy in your work.

Again, it has been said that they me nothing by themselves.... They are a great enhancement to someone that has the rest.
You missed the mark by a mile here.
You sound like a filter vendor. If all you did was change the filter and check the belt, that IMHO is NOT a PM.
After trying to talk some sense in to you I have come to realize that some people just can't be helped, hope you find what your looking for and have the common sense to keep it.

Attitude is directly related to your altitude. The OP is not taking off soon.
If paper credentials are so important why is there so many college grads on the unemployment line?? A piece of paper dies not instill craftsmanship and obviously a good attitude in your case.
