Welcome to the forum...:thumbup:From the Louisville KY area, wanting to get back into electrical work part time while staying with my full time employment. At least until retirement (not far away), just planning on obtaining my license during this time.
I know what you mean. I am a lot closer than that. What you have to remember, though, is to concentrate on the good things about your workplace. There are good and bad but relish the good things. To me, to be saying, "Man, I am glad I am out of there", would be equal to saying that I wasted a part of my life there.I didn't say close, just not to far away. Every day that I put in is one day closer. Just the way that I look at it:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:. Years go by quick, and you ask yourself where did it go.
According to some opinions, I should possibly start looking here (supply house) for part time employment (learn parts, equipment, and gain as much knowledge as possible). With that being said, does anyone know of a supply house in louisville looking for help? I have time on my side and wanting to go in the right direction.
A good counter guy is few and far between. Most are making barely above McDonald's pay and know almost nothing about electrical products, in my experience.I've NEVER met a supply house guy that would make a good electrician. I've met several GOOD supply house guys who USED to be electricians. You can't learn the trade behind a counter.
