    Your still going to suffer on the bad ankle. Condensers on the roof, putting up ladders, heavy lifting, all which will effect your ankle. Best of luck to you in finding a new market sector to work in. JMHO
    Your poor planning does not constitute an emergency on my part!!!!

    Green,

    I am co-owner of a Service Company that belongs to the CFESA trade organization. C.F.E.S.A. stands for Commercial Food Equipment Service Association. I also currently serve on the board of directors for CFESA. If you or anyone is looking to work in this field but don't know how to get started, go to the CFESA website or click this link. http://cfesa.com/states/USA.htm . Click on your state and it will list all of the CFESA companies in your state. Pick the closest one and give them a call. Or, go to http://cfesa.com/contact.htm Send an e-mail to anyone there at the headquarters and they will get you in touch with a company near you.

    Most CFESA companies are looking for good high quality service techs. Many will train and most will cross-train. In other words, we find that HVAC/R and Home Appliance techs are pretty easy to cross train. So, guys in the HVAC/R definitely have a leg up when it comes to hiring. If you are of good character, willing to learn, willing to work, and have some HVAC/R experience, most CFESA companies will give you a shot.

    Every job/career has its disadvantages. Here are some of the good things about working in Commercial Foodservice/Refrigeration repair.

    Almost gauranteed to never be "laid off"
    Good salary and benefits packages.
    Always working on different types of equipment - always challenging/never boring.
    Training is available and is sometimes mandatory.
    Your job is transferable. In otherwords, if you are a good service tech/employee for a CFESA member company in Florida, and you need or want to move to another state, your boss can pick up the phone and get you a job anywhere in the U.S. within a day or two.
    We are all looking for good service techs.

    P.S. Any of you HVAC/R guys looking for a change and live in Upstate (Syracuse, Binghamton, Elmira, Rochester, Buffalo, Jamestown) New York send me an e-mail at any time.

    I hope the techs are better in your area. Here they just hired a guy from another competitor, and he is good. They have a hard time letting people go.

    I was just implying that the techs in our market for your company miss something to be desired. I am CFESA +1 and don't know ****!

    LOL, giving you a hard time, is all. I have a good friend that joined Whaley in this market, he will be a true asset.

    since you like to make cracks on people you don't know just based on your feelings about some of the techs you seem to know personely, why not post where you live and work and I will see if I have every met one of your guys and then make a crack about your job.

    PS- Whaley is the largest foodservice repair co in the southeast and is about to open there 15th branch, I guess some of us must know S***!

    And if you don't know S*** ( your words ) why do you feel qualifed to post on a public blog your "low ratings" about other techs
