I guess you can call it we do it for the Glory
To say that experience comes from bad judgement is retarded.You learn from mistakes(most people), but I would expect anyone who is competent to gain experience with out constant screwups.Otherwise I boot there dumb asses out the door
I'd guess it's a newb, but there's ame's out there with there heads just as far up there asses, so I may be wrong.
have you moved much around in size and type me I have about5 years experience on mostly stuff ranging from c150 up too DHC 2 and the odd twin in there
I did fluctuate a/c size wise, but not always upward. My moving around was/is dictated by the search for better pay/work conditions.
I remember looking around(when I first gradded)for companies that had a/c I thought I liked,because I thought it would be "cool" to be working on them.
I quickly found out that(for me)this was'nt the wisest choice financially or lifestyle wise.
Now, an airplane is an airplane.and when there's no snags, I'm happiest.
I found out big airplane does'nt always mean big money. Air Canada being excluded, most big jet outfits often pay you less than a lot medium tprop/jet operators. That, and if your a new guy, you will likley get stuck with shit jobs, with heavy competition for the better jobs from many others in the same boat. Most of those who I saw advance quickly were competent only at c**cksucking. This seemed to be a common trait at the larger places.
Thats not to say smaller outfits are perfect. But generally, you have to perform well in your job because of the smaller employee numbers. You stand out if you are a twat,because others have to take the slack, and you can't hide in the masses.
You are right about the money part, and being able to do better in automotive(one of many trades). I know several people in trades, and ame wages have initially shocked them, then made them laugh, then laugh harder when you tell them the hours/conditions you work with.
Conversation usually ended up with them shaking there heads and saying they would'nt do it for that money. nice to hear from a plumber, who unfortunatly makes the same wages.
At least you have found a place that fixes A/C to the condition there meant to be kept. That in itself is a good find. I'd recommend that you be very selective in going somewhere else. Places like yours' are not the norm these days, so good on you for finding it.
i didn't go there, but did visit it before i decided to go to canadore. when i visited the campus, there must be a pulp & paper factory near by, 'cause that's all i could smell. reason enough not to go there, in my opinionBoomer wrote:Any graduates have any comments about the quality of education of this facility in Thunder Bay (Confederation College)?
Anyway, I just graduated from there and I can say that the ACE's quality of education is way better than Canadores.
I recommend it. The program there gives you more hands on experience than any college offering the program in Canada.
