He says that working as an air conditioner and furnace technician is the hardest work he has ever done in his life
I have been working a late afternoon and early evening job for the past 12 years. At first I was a stringer reporter for the sports section at my local newspaper. I received calls at night from high school coaches reporting the results of the evening’s games. Having this job for several years made me used to working in the evening hours. By the time I graduated college, I was already looking for new work and managed to secure a remote job as a phone technician. To my luck, I was given an evening shift yet again. I love having the ability to sleep in and stay up late like I did in college. Not everyone has this privilege. My old college roommate is working at a band these days, and his shift starts at 9am. Since his lunch hours are not paid work time, he doesn’t get to leave the building until 6pm in the afternoon. My buddy the HVAC technician has it even worse. He has to be at the heating and cooling warehouse by 7am every single morning. The jobs that he’s assigned to each day start as early as 7:30 to 8am. He works until 5pm on normal days and even later when he’s forced into an overtime shift. He says that working as an air conditioner and furnace technician is the hardest work he has ever done in his life. This is someone who previously worked in the food and hospitality industry for over 10 years before training as an HVAC apprentice. He knows what it’s like to work a back breaking job, and apparently heating and cooling has been the hardest thus far.
