    So I just graduated College with an A.O.S. in HVAC/R and am going on an interview with a local Company that I really want to work for. They do all kinds of service from huge boilers and Large sub arctic freezers (used for testing military equipment) to some small res units. He mentioned giving me a test. What can I expect to see on such a test so that I know what to study for. I'm shure there is no staderdized test for this type of thing, but I could use some "guestimates" from some of your experiances.
    Thanx,
    Mike

    I have no idea but if it is multiple choice ya can always eliminate 2 of em and then ya got a 50% chance on the answer.
    If it's essay and you ain't sure, turn it into something you do know about and write your ass off. Good luck.
    Also dress nice and act like you want to work, don't ask how much they pay till ya get hired.

    How to find c, r, and s windings on a compressor, voltage questions, draw a schematic, suction and head pressure questions, superheat and subcooling questions. Stuff like that.

    A dirty condensor coil will:

    A. Effect head pressure
    B. Effect suction pressure
    C. Over heat the compressor
    D. None of the above
    E. All of the above

    Check this out.

    For years and years our company has been doing gas piping in buildings to the out side. The gas company would test our lines. Then connect from their tank to our lines.

    Everyone was happy. Life was good.

    But now the State of Vermont wants to get in the act. Everyone must now be licensed to work on a gas appliance. No grandfather clause. Even for me who is 60 yo. and doing this sh!t for 40 years.

    I got he results of the test today. 87.9%.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK DICE? IS THIS PURTIER THAN A NATE PATCH?
