    That sounds just like my job. I love where I work, but don't make that much. This would be great for a single guy with no kids.

    This job is mostly boilers and hydronics!

    This job is mostly boilers and hydronics! It does include a little refrigeration (kitchen equipment, cold storage, and a very little cooling).

    Even though the description says 40 hours per week, current schedule is 9hr days, 6 days per week. Also, paid on call when it is your turn. 2 weeks paid vacation in addition to 4 months off rotation each year.

    Food provided is exceptional (crab legs and/or lobster and steak on weekends, full breakfast bar every morning, Mexican, Chinese, etc...)!! Housing is more than adequate (private rooms - some with kitchens, each has own bathroom, cable TV)!! Full gym and fitness center - FREE! Movie theater showing current movies (some before they hit the public) - FREE!!

    Known as "Home of the 40mph fog!" Weather can be EXTREME! Mostly wind. 40-50mph is normal, 70+ knots not unusual. Rainy and foggy is norm. Temps usually 20-55 all year long. Some beautiful days to get out and go fishing!

    Weather isn't much of a problem for us as, like you say, we usually work inside (unlike some of the other trades). Although, changing the cap on the main smoke stack (70' in the air) was an experience. But it is done now so you guy's have nothing to worry about. Come on up!!!

    As for Canadian, I am not real sure. I say give Ms. Kincaid a call and ask.

    BTW, I am just a peon here. I just wanted to get the word out so we can get someone good (had a guy quit).

    Where I work it is alot more comfort cooling and refrigeration and just a little boiler and hydronics.Since it is hot in Florida.

    We mostly just do chemical tests and adjustments for the water treatments and simple boiler repairs. Since they are low pressure " under 125p.s.i. "We check them twice a shift.

    If i was single I would really look into this I will tell some of the guys i used to work with to see if they are interested.

    under ASME RULES the difference between low pressure and high pressur STEAM IS 15 lbs operation, any steam boiler operating at 125 psi is classed as a Power Boiler.
    that is nation wide
    the military does the same, being an ex\ navy steamer thats a absolute
    If you cant cool it
    HEAT THE Hello out of it
