    Building Trades Journeyman. I’m a MES, Mechanical Equipment Service. At least I think that’s all correct. Union stuff is complicated. All I know is I’m paid better than other companies pay in my area, get good raises, bonuses and benefits, and the owner genuinely cares about his employees.

    Over scale, bonuses, Non-Health Benefits, etc. are unheard off here.

    When I work certain jobs that are classified a certain way, I get BTJ rate and benefits. Union stuff is confusing and complicated.

    I am the person in the photo. I have been on here before, but I no longer have access to that Email. I was the Union Local HVAC Training Coordinator, but what a show that was.

    Cool. Then I should be paid well over scale. Nice.

    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.

    If someone is letting it be know about what's happening here, it's more than likely that they heard it from me or saw it for themselves.

    Don't want to say. I know lots of people on here, with what I've divulged thus far I dont want to be specific on my location.

    But as OP said, Pacific Northwest. Weed is still illegal. Figure it out. Lol

    Freon Fighter, you still unemployed?

    Start your own shop and do the things your way and be happy. Makes no difference if it's Automotive or HVAC. There is nothing wrong with being a one man show. I know many who make a livable wage and only do the work they want to

    Good luck in the new year
