HVAC Technician, South Pasadena, CA - April 27, 2013
Very nice area to work in, friendly staff. This is a Union work place. CSEA ( California School Employee Association) Because of budgets and our economy there is not pay increase or bonus to employees. The benefits are Great, lots of days off paid, Pension Plan with Calpers. I take care of five schools and over 400 ac units including boilers. I do this by myself. I don't have a helper. I am busy all the time and can never catch up. I work with old equipment and a 1995 dos computer system to monitor my equipment. I guess the most enjoyable part of my job is there is no high pressure and I am mostly my own boss. I run my own work schedule and prioritize my work load accordingly. I have good benefits and a lot of paid holidays and vacation days. I would only leave if I could transfer to another school in the same Union with the same benefits. I currently drive sixty miles a day to and from work. I would like to be closer to home.
