Hey Guys and Gals... I dont know if the name will be rejected on this posting if it is email me at email@example.com.
When I graudated from my trade college wanting to get into the hvac business I was wondering if anyone would hire me being late into the season, July. But I sent out some resumes and with luck Fire-N-Ice hired me as a apprentice hvac tech.
The job was a good learning experenice I hooked up with a team mate that has been doing hvac work since he was 16 years old. Anyways...
I started seeing little changes in my paychecks and invoices. I noticed that the invoice we had turned in were changed (the hours not the total payment). When I approached my service manager about this he stated that he could not pay us the full hours and we would just have to deal with it.
Later they (the company) slashed our hours in half (e.g if we billed 4 hours on a job they would pay me 2 hrs and my partner 2 hrs). Also they cut our pay by 10 dollars.
Knowing this was illegal we (my partner and I) went to our service manager to talk about these issues. In short he told us if we dont like it we could go to the labor board, which we did.
My service manager fired me, due to a no call no show, which is BS and Chicken "you know what"! Every job that calls for a reference is told I was let go for stealing (I had a friend call pretending to be a hvac company).
Please dont waste your time with this company! Just a warning. If Talk doesnt allow the company name email for the name.
