When people hear that I work for a family business, they typically assume that I rest around all day as well as do nothing, and they assume that I am paid extremely well simply for being born into the right circumstances; I understand why people make that assumption, but they’re dead wrong about it.
In fact, I would say that I’m the hardest worker at our family dealer! My Grandpa is not the sort who believes in nepotism or playing preferreds, as well as he has truly made myself and others work our way up from the bottom.
50 years ago when our Grandpa opened his heating, cooling, ventilation shop he was the first Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C dealership in the areaâ€¦ His skills were extremely upscale as well as he was properly hiring on up-to-date heating as well as cooling contractors. He would personally train the air quality control specialists to perform routine repair services as well as emergency replacements in line with his extremely high standards. He didn’t let a single person perform residential or commercial Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C inspections without passing a rigorous training program. He also made his contractors go through months of menial work in order to build their loyalty to the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C shop, and when he hired myself and others on as a prospective heating as well as cooling specialist more than 2 years ago, I figured that I would have to go through some of the same trials. I expected to be put through the wringer as well as to pay for our own heating as well as cooling education at a local trade school. However, I never thought that it would be more than 2 years of cleaning bathrooms as well as answering iphones without even touching a single heating as well as cooling implement. I guess Grandpa wants to make sure I’m as dedicated as the other Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C specialists.
