    Thumbs up

    If you do get offered the job I would say to defiantly take it. I have a brand new 2010 3/4 ton Chevy van, Over $5000 in brand new tools, company phone and laptop computer. This job does seem to good to be true, I have never had so much opportunity and so much freedom. No one is looking over your shoulder, just do your job well and no one bothers you. I would say you will do about 50% hvac but when it is hot or cold you my have more emergency calls. Most of the work is not that hard fixing doors, changing a hot water tank or sump pump, unclog a toilet, and a lot of PM work. It will probably be great for a guy right out of school because you have time to look at the buildings you will cover and can anticipate what units need work before they breakdown. Good luck I hope you get it. Also you need to be able to pass an extensive background check and drug test.

    I too got a call from JJL (M.E.S. dept) and passed my phone interview. I will be having an in person interview soon. I'm extremely excited. It almost sounds too good to be true.. (the pay..your own truck/tools!) Around here, your lucky if you find an HVAC job with good pay/steady hours without having to buy every tool/equipment you need... let alone even a chance of getting hired in the first place. Government/State jobs are nice but it seems like those are always inside deals..so it's like your interview is for nothing. I'll let you guys know how my 2nd interview goes.

    qwerty hvac: Congrats on your new position. Everything you've said is exactly what my guy I am interviewing with has told me (pay, on call, 18+10 (28) leave days, own truck, etc.) What is the ratio of HVAC work compared to general electrical/plumbing/lighting, etc, that you do?

    This looks like a very tight knit and helpful community full of resources. Glad I joined.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I had my in person interview today with one of the senior techs.. it went well. We'll see if they offer.

    Yeah his van was nice...fully stocked. Showed me the PDA/phone where the service calls come in, etc. Very busy, but that is job security the way I see it. Clients in this area seem to be mostly banks or store/office space in strip malls. Not worried about backround check. I was in the Air Force with a high security clearance and my driving record is clean. I'll keep you updated..

    Hey Navy..I tried to send you a private message but I don't see that option. I just won't use their last names.

    I'm in Gainesville. Dan did my phone interview...and Daniel did my in person interview. They took their ad down off the job board(s) that they posted on.. so maybe that means they chose someone..I don't know.. this wait is killing me. I just want to work!

    Rock, Just joking with you, I have been the one servicing one of the accounts in Gainesville for the past few months.

    The job market up here isnt as good as it was last year but i think its better than most places.

    Navy: I gotcha.. the "are you a HVAC tech" part through me off.. of course I am, that's why I'm here lol. I just don't have real world field experience and I feel it might be hurting me because no one wants to hire a green tech it seems like. Well how are you supposed to get experience if no one will give you a shot. It's frustrating.

    How long?

    Had an interview with JLL last Tuesday and was just wondering how long before they get back to you one way or another?
