depends who you work for, what union(or not), what specialty you are in, what industry or sector you are serving. There is a huge variety of stuff encompassed in the HVAC world, a stupid amount of specialties.

You've got construction, installation, service, maintenance, operations.

In one of these industries: residential, light commercial, commercial, industrial, medical, utility.

Each industry has about 10 different specialties too.


I started off doing service in commercial refrigeration and mechanical, in supermarkets and restaurants. Moved into a job with a utility doing maintenance and operations totally outside hvac but still a mechanical field, left to a federal industrial facility doing operations and maintenance.

I've ordered a few things to read up on, as well as being given the customers policy for 5S in their own building.

So I've been creating job aids for each build we do, along with a print for each job, along with a traveler that shows exactly what size the order is and its BOM...

It's basically going to be a point where a monkey can build anything in the building if they can read the job aid.

We're really just getting started with it, and it's hard for me to get the money from the owner to get some of the stuff I want to do because this is all still just to try to have us quoting on the work. She doesn't want to spend a ton of money getting things ready if we're not going to get the job, but I keep explaining this is one of those "spend money to make money" scenarios. Once you have everything set up correctly we could even save time on the current assemblies which would mean more money into the company pockets.

I was the same way but at the end of the day I look at it like this. My obligation to my family is more important than my obligation i signed on paper.

Just 4 years ago I was $60k upside down on our townhouse, $30k in credit card debt between my wife and my cards, and $20K car loan on my wife's Acura. We were in a bad shape. We wanted to have more kids in a 2 bedroom townhouse but when we started looking into our options we would have to dig ourselves out from under the weight of being severely upside down on a townhouse where half of the neighborhood had fallen into foreclosure. We wanted to be able to live comfortably with a single income and raise a family without the struggles we have gone through.

We made a decision that posed risks and ridicule that have shaped our lives. We walked away from the townhouse, we sold my car for 25k, and saved up more for a down payment while floating our credit cards. Luckily since the house was under my name we could get a loan for another under the wife.

Biggest thing right now is learning 5S/6S/Lean manufacturing stuff because we're going to slowly start heading that way.

Is your place 5S/6S @OffshoreDrilling ??? Like everything and anything is marked, everything has a specific place to be stored, etc.

If it were that easy I'd be making six figures and doing less work.

Both myself and my Mom do the reviews on all employees, then my Mom recommends the raise amounts, then the owner says okay or that we're nuts.

Usually it's that we're nuts.

You make commission at your gig don't you? I'm just saying it sucks to get pulled off the work you're doing to spend a week quoting a job, and then seeing nothing for doing it. Maybe Im just being greedy?
