Hello everyone, this is a great site, I have learned a lot from it. My situation is this, I went to school for HVAC in Indiana, upon completion I moved to Mesa,Arizona. I got a job very fast at a mom and pop company doing mostly maintenance agreements and helping out other techs. when needed. After about a year of this I wanted to do more "tech." work but that didn't happen and the company did mostly mobile home work so I quit that and went to doing maintenance at a resort community. I have done this for 3 years and am stuck at $12.00 an hour. I am 42 years old I have universal EPA certification and I'm a good ,caring worker. My question for you guys is should I try to get back into A/C work for better money and a take home van? (I really miss that)I just feel like I'm wasting my schooling not doing A/C work.Also at my present job I have healthcare benefits but no retirement and at this stage of my life I really need a good retirement program.Please give me your opinions and If anyone has any offers in Mesa please E-Mail me at DGB915@cox.net. Thanks for your time!!
