    Sounds like a great place for someone moving up in the field.

    In fact, the last place I was sort of imploded, and a co-worker got an opportunity to get into the ultra low temp end of things. I asked him what the wage offer was. He said 70K, but he would need to travel a whole bunch. I told him to go for it.

    If for no other reason than to get that extra experience with a different type of equipment. Saw him a couple of times during the following 6 months, and he said he was loving it. Don't have a clue what he is doing now.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    Two problems. Lack of variety. And PSE would likely think the stuff he was working on was so exotic that his pay should be doubled.

    Regarding my comment on lack of variety is only meant that you can get stuck in that groove. When it is more fun to be doing the ultra-low equipment along with rooftop units, along with walk-in coolers and freezers, etc.

    The greater variety of equipment you work on, usually equals a greater happiness and job satisfaction.

    I know you been trying to move up, no sure if you are aware that the UA has instructed all locals to accept as a journeyman anyone with proven 5 years or more of commercial HVAC experience, proof of employment and a notarized affidavit maybe required.
    There is not better place for the working men than the union! 100% UA the only HVAC union!
