    So, against my fellow HVAC-TALKers advice...

    i have left trane and now i am a yorkie...or jci guy...or something.

    same career, different colored chillers. so far, so good. going through my safety training, have a van, tools, laptop and '360'.

    somethings are quite different (i think it is a branch thing) and somethings are the same.

    this also means that i am now part of the union, which is quite new for me. lots of changes this past week, mama is nervous, of course, i am excited.

    for those of you with trane questions, i am still here. for those of you with york questions...i will be reading out of the manual for a while. party on wayne!

    Good luck with the new job, Jay. I feel bad for your former office losing someone as knowledgable as yourself, but I bet the JCI people are doing cartwheels, lol. I hope they are paying you WAAAAAAY over scale.

    Congratulations Jayguy on being a new Yorkie.

    I think your biggest challenge may be mastering the hand held to do your time on.

    Good Luck on your new job.

    Best of luck to you Jay..

    I'm sure you will be a major asset to Cool Blue.

    Good luck with the Next-Gen as I never did figure out how to get parts out of my trunk and apply them to a job.

    Congradulations to Jayguy

    jayguy, My best wishes and all good luck to you and your family in the future. I just started with McQuay in the Houston office. I have been in commercial service for a long time and this is totally different.-GEO

    GA, I'm glad you got a good job, I remember you being dealt a crappy hand by your previous employer... Congratulations! I have a good friend who also just started with McQuay and he is enjoying it as well. He says it's good to be on the ground floor with the latest technology.

    i am just starting to learn that stuff...i keep thinking they are saying 'truck' instead of 'trunk'...whatever, just let me turn wrenches! i will get it eventually.

    thanks to everyone. i was with trane for 11 years and previous to that i was in wholesale for about 10 years.

    i didn't feel that i was being heard by management where i was at. i do not believe that it will be better at york, but when everyone promises the same thing, i am going to try something new. i do not believe that the grass will be greener, but it will be different grass.

    the new direction will also expand my knowledge and capabilities greatly. the pay is about the same, the travel will be a bit more but i will be more well rounded at the end of the day!

    The only thing left to do in another 10 years will be to go out on your own and compete with your former employers on the same territory you've been working for years. Ask Klove or Flange for advice on how to do that, it seems to be working out very well for those guys!

    Congrats Jay, I'm sure that you'll do well there just as you would do well anywhere.
