Hello reddit, Long time lurker, first time poster, english is not my main language, tl:dr; in the end, and sorry for the long post, but i suck a resuming things.
I work in a small company that sells refurbished pc’s, among other services.
I got a call from a customer, that got is pc 3 weeks prior, and as called co many times with issues or questions, that have little to do with the hardware itself, but mostly with due to is configurations and choices.
Because of the, my colleague as started to give some responses, that are not so polite, but justified, and due to this, the customer requested that he does not receive support from him, again, so this time was my turn.
Me = me; hardtech = wannabe hardware technician or customer;
ME: I this is me, from abc, what can I help you with.
Hardtech: Hi, I’m a hardware technician in a professional school… The front audio connectors on the computer that you sold me, don’t work.
ME: Ok, can you tell me in which port you are connecting th... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm interviewing for a field engineering job today but the description just sounds like a field technician for HVAC systems. The pay is 23.00 per hour with overtime and bonuses which they say comes out to 48,000 per year. I'm just worried if the work isn't engineering related my skills will atrophy and I'll screw myself.
I've been applying to jobs since December now and recently graduated with a mechanical engineering degree. I'm really getting discouraged now because I had some interviews and calls before corona and now I'm getting zero. I don't know if it's my resume that's not allowing me to get calls anymore, corona, or what but I'm getting really anxious about it.
I've changed my resume so many times and have kind of stuck with this but have since moved the education under my professional statement. Don't really know what more I can do right now. I thought about doing what someone said on /r/jobs and just messaging different alumni and recruiters o... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm currently working as a dispenser, but I am very interested in possibly becoming a pharmacy technician. What are some things I should know? Any advice? Is this a good career choice? How different is it to being a dispenser?
Thanks in advance!
I went to Lexus today to pick up some parts. The chaos, the lifts stacked so close together, and the look of misery on everyone's face. More power to you if you can muscle through the day, make a living and not drink yourself to death in your off time.
I've been considering closing my shop and going back to a dealer. What I saw today convinced me to keep pushing on my own. I never want to feel like I did at the dealer ever again.
For you guys that are still pushing through the dealer, props to you, and I'll do a shot to salute you. For those of you that hate it, there's a better life out there.
Fuck all the haters that say we will never amount to anything and never make anything positive out of our lives.
I'm not an emt, but I'm looking at becoming one and enrolling in the program once the pandemic is over and they start letting people back into the classroom. My ultimate goal is become an ER Tech. With that said has anyone here ever actually taken the leap and transitioned from EMT to an ER Tech? If so what was like it? Was it worth it? Did you find that your time as an EMT helped you out in anyway or did you learn more an EMT rather than an ER tech? Also once you did transition how much of an pay increase did you get? Pretty much just trying to see if its worth it to become an ER Tech
I don't know how much damage the technician laser pointer itself does. Spotter does 15% to pulsed enemies, but does the laser pointer add any more to that?
If not, should I just run kinetic momentum for a flat 15% bonus damage to my drone/turret or glass cannon for when I want to play risky?
I keep hearing about spotter but I'm not sure on the values.
Currently about to graduate highschool. I'm trying to plan everything out as of now. I can go to school completely free without any student debt.
Whinge thread. NBN tech just left and I'm pissed off and amused at the same time.
On the 50 plan on a HFC connection. I've been in contact with my ISP about upload speeds, which have been degrading over the last 6 weeks. Upload is now 2Mbp/s at their highest, and I was originally getting 15 - 18Mbp/s.NBN technician arrives this morning and asks me "what I expect him to fix", since my line was "perfect". He told me 18Mbp/s uploads were impossible and that no ISP offered plans of more than 3Mbp/s. He also questioned why I even needed upload speeds of more than 2Mbp/s.These are the technicians implementing this infrastructure, and people wonder why the quality of the NBN is so inconsistent.
Edit: Speeds are megabits/s. We were looking at the results of speedtest.net, where my tested results were 46/1.6
I’m looking into this apprenticeship program at CMU. I have looked at the curriculum and it sounds interesting and some of it overlaps with some of my coursework. I’m a computer science major (have taken java classes that went from 0 to javaFX) but I don’t think I want to be a programmer. I think I’d prefer something a little more hands on. So I’d like to know what robotics technicians actually do all day and what training I’d need. Also I guess I can look this up but if you can give any information on salary I’d rather hear it from experience. Thanks.
Asked if he is attending a funeral or a job interview. Neither - he's going to the liquor store and it's an important occasion.
So, the lead tech where I work is fantastic at their job! They’re able to keep things running smoothly during their shift. They have been working as a tech for many years and have a lot of experience.
The only downfall is that they have an attitude and are very rude to untrained technicians. He has called techs, customers, and the pharmacist dumb asses. He hates having to answer questions and when they teach you anything it’s the “Figure it out yourself” method. If you ask anything you’re just left feeling like shit. He doesn’t let certain techs work in QT or answer the phones and will tell them they aren’t authorized to do that. It has gotten to the point where another tech has complained about them to the higher ups.
The pharmacists don’t want to get rid of him because they’re just that good at their job and when they’re not there the pharmacy is more chaotic. Their only solution was to just have him not train newbies. So any form of training that is done has to be done when... keep reading on reddit ➡
The whole list of people who do and don’t qualify is an arbitrary mess. Not to dismiss the important work that they do or to imply that they don’t deserve the pay, but it’s a little silly that people who only work indirectly with patients qualify (cooks, laundry, etc) yet other staff who directly work with patients (such as lab technicians who do blood draws, and Rad that take chest x-rays inside of patient rooms) don’t.
Particularly with the Lab, we’ve been working crazy hard (double shifts, short staffed) to meet the Ontario government’s goal of 20000 COVID tests a day, only to get this slap in the face.
Just took and passed my Technician's exam about an hour ago. Having a glass of whiskey to celebrate as I type this. It was done remotely via Zoom. 3 people administered, and one ARRL rep was there to oversee things. Was a fairly simple process, and I only got on question wrong (damn, was really hoping to ace it).
I took my test through and org called New England Sci-tech. It's a tech/maker education outlet based in NE, but they do online classes and if you sign up for their class they prioritize your testing slot. I would highly recommend the class not just for the access to testing, though, as it was a great overview of all the subject material.
I just wanted to thank the sub and all the people who answered questions this month. What an amazing resource all you guys are.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask in the comments!
I graduated four years ago with a bachelor's degree in neuroscience. Ever since, I have been working in academic research labs. I have been thinking a lot about my career lately. Initially, I thought about PhD program, but seeing miserable post-docs and phd students changed my mind about grad school. I am thinking of changing career into data science or computer science. However, it is difficult to say good bye to neuroscience and research. Also, I am 26 and changing my career entirely sound tough and rough. Anybody have similar issues?
Did a technician you work with do something completely dumb, extremely funny, or just simply amazing? Go ahead and post it here and let the rest of us join in and read what they did!
I am pulling my hair out trying to level tyrouge to get him , does anyone have a couple extras?
Whenever I call to check in on my order, the only answer I get is that a technician will reach out to me when they’re doing installations. Kind of sucks because we really have no alternative, as they said we can’t do a self install, and our building is not wired for spectrum. Obviously I can totally sympathize with wanting to be cautious, but it’s frustrating to hear that Spectrum is already having technicians come for installations.
Hey friends, feel free to let me know if this isnt the best sub for this.
Recently I've started doing technician/ production work on electronics after years of bussing tables and reception work which have left my nails in a not so favourable manner.
I've found that having strong nails helps with the intricate parts of my builds. since none of my coworkers (literally all men) wouldn't be caught dead talking about nail care and anyone else that I know of that knows anything about nail care dont need/wreck their nails for their job I'm at a bit of a loss.
Have any of you experienced this or know of something that might help ?
I have 6 years of maintenance experience from the job(s) I worked to pay for college. Now that I've graduated with my Mechanical Engineering degree I see postings for Field Service Technicians and the like. I prefer to work with my hands so these appeal to me but I am concerned about how well they'll allow me to make the most of my degree.
It's a newly built house, there's no existing phone wiring anywhere inside or outside of the house, as far as I know.
Are there third parties who can do that kind of work?
EDIT: She needs the phone line for DSL, not voice service.
EDIT: Nevermind, looks like an AT&T technician pulled up in her yard about an hour later. Guess it's all taken care of. Thanks for the help.
Hello, I am hoping to get feedback on test eligibility lists. I recently received notice that I can retake my OT exam. I still have another year until it expires. But I heard there is the option, that after a year, applicants can do a retake. My concern is:
If I score lower that my previous score, will HR base my applications on my lower score
OR revert back to my previous score.
Any advice helps. Thanks much!
