recap.. i changed jobs from a friggy warranty depot to a store that did retail only calls, 2 weeks later dealers found me and a week after that my boss had been courted and we now have a frigidaire warranty contract

now i dont mind the frigidaire contract, but....

we have 2 other techs both with almost twice the years i have and they cant fix anything that is remotly electronic

they have NO CLUE

the other night while we all waited for a group picture these 2 old timers commented on how nice it was we had access to parts so they could order "modules" to plug in to test machines

i assume they mean EOC on ranges and control boards on d/w and laundry

"sigh"

nobody at this shop used the "intranet" before this i cant wait for all the questions

time will tell, and for now sorry if i'm bitter and jaded buy i think my life is gonna be hell for the next long while

 
The only stupid question is the one not asked

hope i've been helpfull, if you wish to buy Brnt beer kick here

yeah, its gonna be rough :yikes: but if you gradually help the and teach them a little here and there (that is if they want to learn), they will respect you a lot more, just dont force it.

Brings back memories of when I worked for Maytag Factory Service and I had 3 rookie technicians who were fresh out of trade school and they guessed at which part needed to be replaced, ordered the part and it still didn't solve the problem. I don't even think they new what a meter was.

It was so bad, I had to have my service manager let all 3 of them go and then I had to work overtime, 6 days a week, putting in 60 hour workweeks until we hired some more experienced techs.
