    Rite Aid was handles by Tyler and Hussmann. The stores have been split up to several contractors in the state. As money tightens in this tough economy, Rite Aid felt a change was in order.

    auntb11: I am from the area and have never heard one negative thing about your co. I am in the local 250 and will stay that way for now. I agree dispatchers are very hard to come by that are any good. The real problem is companys give dispatchers so much power over the Tech which is not governed by the service manager. You have some girl with zero experience in HVAC *****ing at guys with 15 years experience. Its gets old explaining to a dumb yenta why something can't be done they way she dream it up. Now I'm ranting see yaa.

    WOW!!! Where do i begin?? First off there is an Arctic Mechanical in Corona. They have been in business for years, however our original owner always wanted his business to be called Artic Mechanical. Problem is, he was a bad speller and really thought he spelled it right on the contractor application. Second, dispatchers are EXTREMELY hard to find. Most experienced dispatchers are pretty well set in stone and ont like to move. Our current dispatcher came from AMS and does a fairly decent job. Our old dispatcher came to us from a towing company. Third, the union has been and always will be a great place to work, Nobody can beat the union training. The trade and the current labor laws in our state are in place because of the unions, with that said. If you are an overachiever, the union can be a bad place as seniority still plays a part. I was in the union (NOT HVAC) and it drove me crazy. I was held back and i realized it wasnt for me. Luckily for everyone, there is enough work for everyone. Look us up, give us a try and see what you think.

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.
    What about the size of the shop? How many mechanics do you have? Is most of your work in the IE or do you try and route mechanics near where they live? Understandably, driving is involved but I've had a lot of 100+ miles a day at a previous company and am trying to avoid that.
