    Upstate Ny commercial industrial HVAC service companies

    Might be moving to the area around Buffalo Rochester. Curious what companies I should look into for employment. 15 years in the trade. Work primarily on Screws and Heavy Recip equipment. Have extensive Market refrigeration knowledge as well.

    might be, the plumbing unions here, for example, make you start at the bottom no matter your qualifications.

    here is the deal, union contractors need mechanics and the union has nobody to give them, if you have the experience and can do what you said...... you shouldn't have a problem getting into the union as Journeyman, is very likely they would place you in probation period to feel you out, we have guys coming in talking a big game but couldn't fix a sandwich.

    Not sure what the different levels are I know apprentice and Journeymen, what's the next step. Also is there any state licensing required in Ny? Tx we just have to register with the state so they can make $25 a year from us.
