I get online this morning and Dave leaves this message; "Go see Fitter33 boss ... PLEASE".

Right about this time, the phone rings ... it's Fitter33. He's phoning to tell me his boss is back in the office and very eager to talk with me again!

hmmmm.... it made me wonder if them two had got together and hatched this out .... offline.

So today I met with this other Market Man who is a contractor.
He is in deep with this certain local chain.
They are a better grade of store to work in and better money from the contractor. Great medical, 100% paid for by the employer, plus other benefits.

Fitter says I should adapt real easily to the Einstein controls their stores use.
I guess he figures that since we both spend so much time on our own computers!

Oh ... and training ... it's there. In fact, a copeland rep even came out to their shop for a training seminar.

I've been coming here over the past couple of months asking questions about how certain matters should be handled properly.
I also asked about repair problems. Things I never got answered on the job.
And I also came here to vent.
To gripe about the store personell who do the darndest things.
And why corperate doesnt do what I think they outa be doing. For the benefit of their own equipment and utility bills.

And ... last but not least ... I would come here to gripe about the utter BS, backstabbing and lies at the office.

The BS seems to have stopped, for the time being anyway.
I dont know for sure if it was my last comment to that co-worker telling him to tell the boss he can go .... hmp... anyway .... enough of the negative....
Let's just say I did what James would have did had he been there.
Maybe it wasnt the best thing to say to someone in authority over you, but I said it anyway ... and there's been no more crap since then ....

Anyway. I dont like to have to resort to fussing with someone in order to make a statement. My word on a matter should simply be good enough.

And now an opportunity has risen. I ambeing offered a fulltime, permanent position with this other company in the same town that I already now work in.
Better money, more hours, (Augh), not on call so often.
Full medical benefits, 100% paid by boss! (YES!!!).
Company truck. (YES!!!).
Weekly tool allowance! YES!

You know ... the usual stuff!

Oh yeh ... and their NOT UNION!!!

Now I'm not completely positive on this one other issue here, but I think ...the pay is even better than the local Husman shop, who is also NON-UNION!

Oh ... and only one of their stores has ladders to the motor rooms. The rest all have stairs! YES!!!

Most of my current stores use ladders to access the motor rooms. And that stinks! Big Time!

When I began writing this thread, I wasnt sure what I should do. Now that I've penned it all out ... in digital black on white ... it's a no brainer.

I'm changing store chains.

By the way ... I hear tell there's this new freon in some markets. ... it's called "five-oh-seven"..... anyone here ever use any of that stuff? It is any good?
