Reminds me of a shop I used to work at. New guys title/job description was "Reiners bi**h". Reiner was the lead installer.

I did 6 months of school and got a "basic certificate". Got hired with a commercial company as a helper in the service department. I have no mechanical experience and I'm only 19. I guess I got pretty lucky.
