Hey grups. Long time no see. Been on nights pretty much since I started the market job. Right now im on my "We dont want work in the stores this time of year" vacation (aka taking back my deductions from the Conservatives).
I thought after having almost a year in resi. I would be somewhat good at markets...
I'm starting at the bottom again. The union here is having a hard time figuring out what my level is. I should be a 2nd year but the rules for apprenticeship differ from here and NB so they have had to send it off to the ministry to figure it out. So I've had to take the hit and be a 1st year again BUT I'm glad I did. Yeah I'm lugging pipe and cleaning the job site but some journeymen have let me get my hands dirty. I've realized that its a different beast altogether. Considering there was maybe 5 different fittings and 3 different pipe sizes I used before well... Its hard work. I get my fair share of blastings. But I guess this is how you're supposed to start out in the trade. However I have been told that I can make trim on cases look good, and before I got laid off I passed my brazing test.
I also learned what its like to leak test in a market, and that in markets, theres no such thing as too much silicon lol.
