100 hour service route for a 40 hour weekgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread
I share the concerns posted. I am curious as to whether the concerns are localized in certain areas of the country or if it may be a nation wide situation? It also appears, from my perspective, that the class A buildings are getting the service or at least better than others. Does this seem to be the case? The industry is a good one, affords good income and is enjoyable work for those who are mechanically inclined. A work schedule that does not provide sufficient time is demoralizing in addition to the increased callback situation. We notice that increased callbacks seems to increase the incident of accidents, precisely what our work is supposed to minimize or eliminate, as in, "maintain the equipment in safe and reliable operating condition". It may be interesting to get a thread going on these issues.

Vern, the problem is throughout the US. What you refer to as class A jobs, is most likely the jobs with current technology installed. The service problem remains the same. The new jobs are neglected probably more so. The service man has to spen most of his time running to the jobs his comapany refuses to put back any money into it. It's all based on the Greed of the company who intern blames the stock holder. In time the so-called class A job will need modernization too.
