    sounds like the quacks selling the Talon RMS
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    Oh yeah, that sounds good, i saw a Employment flyer at RSD Santa Ana, what you offer sounds real good such as 40 plus hours, can you tell me how your dispatcher treats the techs, because my last dispatcher was a bi*ch who treated their techs like garbage.

    Refer Guy - You are correct, I made some mistakes in the dispatcher(s) that I hired. All in all it is a fair shop. Like finding a qualified tech, it is even harder to find a qualified dispatcher. I have finally resorted to using a head hunter to find a qualified dispatcher. Most dispatchers do not hang out in supply houses or read on line forums. We offer as many hours as the tech can generate or the customers provide. 5 paid holidays, 1 week vacation after the first year, 2 weeks after the third year and 3 weeks after the sixth year, nine different insuarnce plans and I pay you $40.00 for being on call on top of any OT you get. Is Artic perfect, no!! First off, we spelled the name wrong, what a Dumb A__S I am! But a company that is ran by techs who know what it is like to work in 120 degree heat and who will meet you on site to help out when you are in trouble. Can't be all bad.

    Sorry, I left out some other good things about Artic. I offer a tool purchase program, no matter the cost, paid training, free Cintas cotton uniforms. leased and purchased vans with 90% having less than 90,00o miles. Most roll out to the leasing company at the 110,000 mile mark. Open book financials with an operations manager who tells you the true profit and loss of the comapny. If you rememeber, refer guy, I even told you how much an hour I make so that there were no secrets. The first Monday of the month is a 100% paid breakfast meeting that all you can eat. Jiffy Lube, Americas Tire, Wrights fuel cards, and certified Goodyear accounts so that you never have to pay out of pocket for any emergency. Upfront Per Diem pay for out of town visits.

    You are absolutely correct on that auntb11, Artic is a fair company, you saw how i sure as heck did not want to leave, but an apprentice can only take so much attitude from a damm dispatcher on top of the other stresses that come with this trade in the begining. I have always been very greatfull for the training that you all gave me, the attention to detail that i learned, you and the service manager have the utmost respect from me, and i remember when you came out to the field and showed me how to spot repairs wich is something that to this day has helped me in being a sucssesful tech.

    Now how about that retirement plan you all talked about, has that happened yet.

    I discussed the retirement plan with the employees and they wanted cheaper insurance instead. I dropped the idea.

    Don't feel bad. I once taught flying at a place called the "Xxxxxxx Flite Academy." I asked why they just didn't spell it "flight" and got a lot of blank stares.
