    Go to the contractor that now has the WM's?

    I think WM's are a good place to learn because they constantly monitor, so you have to be tits on. They also have plenty of mutha ****in RTU's to keep you busy most of the time.

    I have and they have to finalize the deal before they can give me a time I could come on.Also one of the guys that did wal mart for my company is in talks with the new contractor, so i am trying to set up other ways of getting into the refrig / rack sys. side of it. I want to be a well rounded tech, so my wallet can be WELL ROUNDED with cash. I have the chillers, etc experience now I want the refrigeration side.

    Refrigeration Technicians and Installers do make good money, but not by more per hour than any real good HVAC Technician. It's due to the overtime. Refrigeration, especially larger refrigeration applications and systems, they have to run, all the time. And they break all the time. So your working ALL THE FUGGEN Time.

    This trade has been good to me thus far. In every aspect. A guy can work for himself, work for a big or small shop, work as a stationary dude. I mean it's endless.

    If your good and your a decent enough guy, you will be wanted by everyone.

    It depends on:
    • Where you live
    • The type of accounts/business the company you work for has
    • How good you are at what you do
    • What your attitude is like
    • How much you are willing to work

    And how good looking you are. If your fat, you may have less work. But if your ugly you will have even less work. If your fat and ugly, don't even try.

    Taking our honeymoon...........with kids

    Renee's folks gave us a week at their time share at Christmas Mountain back in 2000 as a wedding present.

    Did Noah's Ark for 2 days, went to Ripley's yesterday, did Mt, Olympus today and the wife and kids are going again tomorrow (I gotta go back to stay on top of things).

    Haven't been to Lake Delton but plan on checking it out yet this week.

    We should get together next year down here.............it would be a helluva good time
