    Unhappy Dumbfounded!

    I'm dumbfounded by the fact that Bruce is dead!
    I've been so busy since I started AIR-WIZZ, Inc. a few years ago that I have not been to this site in a long while. Bruce is the one who qualified my License a few years back. I've been beeting myself up about not keeping in closer touch with Bruce since I went solo. Looks like I really missed out on this one. I came to this site to reach out to him for advice. WOW, I'm really blown away now.
    What else can I say...
    Don't argue with an idiot, you'll have to go down to their level and they'll beat you with experience!

    I was in touch with him about a month before he passed. I was looking into overseas work. He brought a lot to this site, no doubt.

    Check in more often. We are striving to carry on here.

    Hey again guys and gals. Been a long time since I checked in. Life has gone 180 on me now lol. Girlfriend was working in a deli and saw the refrigeration guy there so she bugged him on her break. Turns out his company was hiring. So I called them and they told me they were. I forwarded off my credentials to their HR department and two days later got asked to go to an interview. I got hired on the spot. Quit the residential 2-tons-r-us biz. Now Im a member of Local 787 (HVAC/R Workers, Ontario), doing racks and cases. They work all over Ontario so somehow in two weeks I managed to pull a car out of my butt-a 1999 Corolla. So far they have been keeping me local doing installs for a large drug store chain here. My first couple of days I was helping put a glycol loop into a new supermarket. Money is great. Job is great. Good guys to work with and I feel like im being challenged on the daily. Refrigerations an entirely new beast to me despite the fact I studied it in trade school, but I love it. Even the girlfriend says I come home less grumpier than I usually do lol. They even gave me a new torch set and benders along with a lot of PPE. My first day was all training. Transportation of Dangerous goods, WHMIS, and scissor lift certification. They just grabbed a couple big contracts so this winter looks busy. Guess he who waits the longest does catch the biggest lol.
    Get money, get paid.

    Hey Brett, how ya doin buddy? Haven't been following the thread for a while (my bad, no excuse). Hope things are working out for you.

    Wowee, Ray, that is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!

    As for my opportunity...

    There were a couple. One job opening evaporated when a guy who had been rear-ended by a dump truck was ready to return to work. Ah, well.

    I had applied online for another position (BIG outfit) in March, and I was called in for a written test. Took it and passed. So did five other guys out of a group of maybe 15.

    Had a face to face "tech questions" interview as a follow-up.

    Waiting to hear.
