My supervisor had been grooming me to take over his position for months as he transitioned to a commercial HVAC provider.
I had been a junior HVAC repairman for three and a half years and worked with many professionals in the HVAC business.
My supervisor is beneficial and has an admirable grasp of the ever-evolving HVAC technology. There is a phrase he would always say, “care for the devices, and they will care for you.” The term made so much sense when advising customers on the importance of regular HVAC maintenance. It was a joy working with my supervisor. Before the HVAC professional left, the boss announced that I would take over at the meeting. Part of my job description involved managing the incoming team of techs. They were a team of seven. I had never handled a group in my career, but there is always a first for everything. Before he left, my supervisor had taken me through months of training on managing a team, the common challenges, and how to solve them. When the team put me under, I took them through my expectations, and we planned to work together to provide quality and efficient home services to our customers. Our first job was an HVAC installation. The homeowner had made the last change to the new HVAC equipment. The homeowner now wanted the same quality HVAC from a different HVAC brand. I delegated various tasks to the team. The latest member would install the digital thermostat but under my supervision. In no time we had completed installing the quality HVAC equipment. The HVAC unit would help with indoor comfort.
