Since I quit I have had three different interviews with HVAC companies, and I have two more lined up later this week
I remember when loyalty used to count for something, but it seems like those days are long gone. I just quit the job I’ve worked for the last seven years, because the boss passed me over for a promotion I deserved. He is a young guy, and thought he would hire one of his college buddies for the new supervisor position instead of promoting me. I could not let that stand, because I was more than qualified, and besides that I have been fiercely loyal to this job for my entire tenure. So instead of putting up a fuss I simply told the boss that I was putting in my notice, and would go work for another HVAC contractor. The thing about getting your HVAC certification means you have proof of a skill set, and can take those skills with you no matter where you go. Add on the fact that I have seven years of on the job experience with heating and cooling systems and I think my resume is strong. Since I quit I have had three different interviews with HVAC companies, and I have two more lined up later this week. Even though I already have one firm job offer I want to see what the other HVAC contractors have to offer. It turns out I had backed the wrong horse, and my HVAC skills are much more valuable than my old boss thought. Even without the promotion I will be able to start as an HVAC tech for a lot more money I used to make.
