    Last company I worked for had a sign on bonus of $4K if you stayed there a year.

    $1.5K if you got a referral who stayed there a year.

    And yes, I did collect $5.5K
    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.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Yeah that’s how it is here. A county spot has been open over a year, and they can’t fill it. Very cushy gig.

    County jobs don't pay crap...unless you are related to some republican crook at the top capable of inventing one of these "no show high pay job for you" at the water authority of bus terminal.

    $48K to $52K/year is what the school district pays for HVAC tech job,average residential HVAC guys makes $10K to 20K more, the state pension used to be good 20 years ago, I think they are up to tier-7 now and that's basically a work till you drop dead 401k.

    Yeah the county pension plan was pretty weak. Wasn’t impressed. Residential pulling in 75-100k plus benefits. A lot of the colleges here UofR and RIT constantly looking as well. I believe the UofR guys are in a union.
