    Still kind of getting over the shock of it right now.
    I will be shouting at some of the folks at Ranken to see, they only have part time advertised at this time.

    Remember what a rope is? LOL. The burn of climbing ladders and hauling all of that equipment up to a roof, just to lower it back down a couple of hours later? Or, you now doing resi?

    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.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Lol, well the new co "does it all" which i am opposed to but i dont make the rules. The problem i have with it isnt the work, it is impossible to adquatly stock a truck for a day.

    In the past month i have worked on refers, ice machines, boilers, paint booths, exhaust fans, large to small roof tops, rack systems,psudeo blast freezers, marine units, ovens, and grill tops.

    Need an f tree fiddy with a power stroke and a 45 foot gooseneck to have what i need.

    Oh and dont get me started on this new third party service crap, they can add an easy hour to a call.

    I like the co and all of the folks involved, a lot of it feels new again and is requiring a step back and questiong my self a lot. Other than tossing a little wiel-mcclain steam boiler skid together for the memphis train8ng program it has been 25 years since i fooled with a boiler, things have changed lol.

    I don't mind climbing the ladders to get to a roof. Don't like working off of ladders doing install work though; fortunately, I do very little of that.

    Regarding third party work, that's what did in the last company I worked for. When I started there, there was about ten techs with four other PM guys, and lots of really good accounts. Then they started getting some of that third party work, and the owner saw all of the potential work out there.

    Problem is that work only paid 75 cents on the dollar. Long story short, the owner started focusing on the third party work, and slowly lost all of the good accounts. That's when I put in my notice.

    Sounds like you have a lot of variety where are now, which is good for long term job happiness! Best of luck to you!!
