    Thumbs up

    I'm moving June 4th to Ypsilanti from Milwaukee.
    I'm an HVAC Installer with 3 years experiance.

    If someone knows of a possible upcoming job opening at their company or is currently hiring or always hiring, I'd appreciate the tip.

    snips out!

    My wifes work is the reason for the move.
    I understand that the economy isn't at it's strongest, but from what I here the houseing market is still strong. Is your place of work looking for help?

    I was in Ann Arbor, Mi for two weeks around christmas.(5 miles from Ypsi)

    There was NOT ONE HVAC/R job in the paper.

    Not one.

    Ive thought about moving back there several times ....

    But the employment situation is pretty bleak.

    Ok, we're getting a bit off topic. There are posting for service work, not so much for installation. I do have HVAC/R school education, along with epa certification and on the job experiance, so if all else fails...

    Things will be heating up in MI soon.Just have to pound the pavement , heck theres a shop on every corner and there lies the problem... too many one, two man shops causing lower wages and lack of work.You'll find work, but for how long is the only question.However if you can pound some metal you may be doing great, there is definitly a lack of good installers who can make thier own metal...I can help ya in this regrad, stay away from Action and Bronsons..GL

    I've responded to one add online for some company in Ann Arbor (manpower) looking for three installers, they claimed 50hrs a week, must be commercial work, not sure...

    I've been making my own duct and stacks all along so it's no big deal to me.

    I take it as those two shops have high turnover?

    I hope I am not going to HVAC school so I can make 10-12 an hour. How could you live on that?

    This sounds like one of those day labor/temporary staffing companies. Is it a real HVAC company?
