Default Rotation issues

Was wondering if anyone had any horror stories about rotation, I have been working with the same contractor and jman for the past year and a half. Mostly doing commercial work any ways rotation came up and they have me working with a CE doing desi work ewww I know, do y'all think it's worth just riding out and being behind the 8 ball or going up to the apprenticeship and trying to get transferred to another shop

A check on Friday beats sitting on the bench, you decide.

Couldn't hurt to speak to the training director, if he says there is nowhere to send you, suck it up. I think it's good you're getting residential experience tho. I have none, wish I had done a year when I was an apprentice.

Idk I'm going to try to pick up what I can, it's newish work. Which I did a did a fair amount of before I got into the program. I guess it's just frustrating going from a top jman at my previous shop to working with a CE that goes to school a night before me, and can't sign my work report. But it's hard to bitch when your getting a check and some folks of out of work
