My supervisor had been grooming me to take over her position for months as she transitioned to a commercial HVAC provider.
- I had been a junior HVAC repairman for three and a half years and worked with several professionals in the HVAC business! My supervisor is beneficial plus has an admirable grasp of the ever-evolving HVAC technology.
There is a phrase she would regularly 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 service. It was a joy working with our 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 our work, but there is regularly a first for everything. Before she left, our supervisor had taken me through months of training on managing a team, the regular challenges, and how to solve them, when the team put me under, I took them through our expectations, and we planned to work together to give quality plus efficient home services to our customers, and our first task was an HVAC installation. The homeowner had made the last change to the current HVAC equipment. The homeowner now wanted the same quality HVAC from an uncommon HVAC brand. I delegated several tasks to the team. The latest member would install the digital temperature control but under our supervision. In no time we had completed installing the quality HVAC equipment. The HVAC component would help with indoor comfort.
