Back to Work


For the past 11 months I’ve been playing a desk jockey being a technical consultant with Whirlpool. As the months passed I found it harder and harder to be sitting behind a desk, playing the numbers game, feeling like the lone man out working from a home office.

After long talks with the family I’ve decided to do what’s best for me and go back into the field as an Appliance Technician. I’ve found an awesome Local Denver Company to work for who has been in business for over 40 years. Seems they know how to treat their employees as most have been with the company for 10+ years and there are a few who have been with them for over 30 years.

It’s a scary and exciting transition for me but I'm looking forward to working for a small local business with the right attitude towards customer service and family friendliness that I've been looking for in a company. The downside is I’ll be losing my awesome benefits and retirement package along with having to buy tools again as most of mine were sold in the move from North Carolina to Colorado. But on the upside I’ll have the potential to make twice what I was making as a technician in North Carolina as well as almost one and a half times what I am making now as a consultant. The hours are still a reasonable 8 and half hours a day and Tabetha has been researching some awesome insurance plans and IRA’s.

If I can’t be riding my bike or researching maps to earn a living I might as well as give into my 3rd love of working with my hands; playing with electronics, wire schematics, torches, and wrenches.
