Is it a protected trade, whatever that is?
Any help would be useful.
chocolate_frog said:What is actually wrong with being a tech?
Is_the_link_in? said:Thats a fair point about the not being able to fix anything business. It seems your not allowed to open the kit to fix it because its been strategically designed to break at the most awkward moments, which thenhas to be sat in back loading stores across the corp to get fixed.
Mind you, would being a tech/is geek be all soo bad? Good quals for civvy street!
Considering techs fill in 1045's and 1033's when they fix kit anyway, is it such a drama? Even if you could fix the kit you would still have to do the paperwork! Just think of it as practise
Alternatively, do courses in specialised kit i.e Talon, LWRN and VTC. Jobs a good'un
jimmys_best_mate said:With the new kit coming in (Cormorant, Bowman, Falcon (eventually)), it's turning into a bit of a shit job because your working day consists of filling in 1043s instead of actually fixing anything. Plus we're being amalgamated with the IS Engrs which isn't what most people joined as Techs to do.
PoisonDwarf said:Whether you agree with it or not, apparently it's too expensive for us to fix COTS stuff and it works out cheaper to buy new bits. That means the trade you joined has already changed and that's why the trades are merging - because a lot of "what most people joined as Techs to do" has already become obsolete.
