I have one year experience in the electrical/hvac trades. I am a residential apprentice/installer/light service guy. I can install electrical services, run new lines, troubleshoot shorts, etc. I can also install furnaces, air conditioners, and lightly troubleshoot them. Problem is this company is small. Me, HVAC installer, hvac service tech, apprentice.
I feel like I am not getting enough experience. No apprenticeship program, only on the job experience. Another problem is this company can't keep guys. The electrician that taught me left after two years of being employed. Layed off his replacement twice. I am currently the senior guy at the company, aside from the owner and office manager.
I'm taking the electrical calls, and running the jobs while they search for another electrician to lay off. What's your opinion on this company? Should I search for better employment? And should I try a company as a hvac tech or electrician? So I can master one, and eventually learn the other, instead of trying to keep track of two trades so early on.
