    Get with the biggest company doing the biggest work you can find and never look back. You'll end up with 2-3 times the money, better benefits, and an interesting and challenging job.

    Amen to that. Did a favor for an old bosses neighbor, only charged a service call (she shut emergency switch instead of light switch) called him everyday till he gave her money back.

    It's not the 130f+ that's the problem, it's the 45f- up here in Canada, that sucks.

    it does sound appealing

    are there any companies here in florida that will take on a residential service/installer and train them in the commericial field? because i would love that kind of oppurtunity, the attics are getting old..

    Brenster, there's lots of shops here in Tampa that would gladly take someone with a great attitude, no ego, and proven track record on the residential side.

    The fundamentals will never change, no matter what it is you're working on. If your understanding of electrical principles and troubleshooting is sound, you'll do well.

    You can get out of the attics and on to a white-hot rubber roof in the middle of july
