    Been with this new company a little over a month. Walked in the first day and was handed keys to the spare pickup truck because my van was not ready and told to go put in a compressor. Haven't stopped since!! Company is that new techs ride with a senior tech for 2 weeks to learn paperwork and get other arientation!! My team leader now wants a meeting in the morning because he can't make heads or tails of my paperwork!! On the phone this afternoon he ask me who in the company taught me proper procedure!! He was not really happy when I said WHAT ORIENTATION???

    Boy i feel for him. First thing of the morn. I check in all the mens previous days work and money and when you dont A-B-C your routine it slows the whole checkin routine. We have a new man and today he solo'ed but he is experienced. Tommorrow i'll check his ORIENTATION taught by a 30 yr employee over the last 4 days. thank goodness its friday.

    Don't tell me.......they say things like "getting focused and teamwork and lets all pull together for the good of the company and mutlti-tasking" and other nonsense that no one pays attention to.

    These are 10 times more important than subcool, superheat, or even 22!!

    Cross training is another big WORD

    3 techs like myself can do it all, commercial HVAC, commercial Refrigeration, residential refrigeration, and kitchen equipment. The other 15 can do 1 or 2 of these!! We get no more respect!! BTW my team leader is a vietnamese who has a limited understanding of English!! ARGGGGHHH

    They are more important than superheat I suppose, but don't be knocking the only good freeeeeeezone left on the planet.

    lets not forget "moving forward" "focus on the company goal" "supporting your fellow team member and team leader"
    "wer'e all in this together" "focus our energy towards satifiying our customer" "the chain is only as strong as the weakest link" "fast-paced enviroment" "associate"
    there's more drivel out there eh? add that to the steaming pile that management piles up
