Though I did not have directly compatible experience with residential HVAC systems Bay Area Services took the time to train me with their most experienced technicians. I will be forever grateful for such a helpful crash course.
What I wish was different
I wish it was closer to Appleton. I also wish I could work there while going to school, but doing both was simply not feasible.
Always say yes to a learning opportunity. I learned a good portion of what I gained by questioning my co-workers and their methodology/thought process.
