Atltech you hit it right their on the head in your post. That one tech that can go out and fix anything that nobody else could. He is worth a lot of money next to the other tools in your toolbox, I mean next to the other techs in your tool box, you can't see that???

You should be well rounded and have to work on everything. I personally enjoy working on the POS equipment just as much as working on the ATG's or down in the sumps. I have worked at a company down in Houston for a while and won't mention any names but there Prima Donna POS techs wouldn't even carry filters or any STP parts on their trucks.

I may be one for 2-3days of the week but the other days I run the same calls everyone else does. I honestly don't think there is room for a pos only type of guy in this field. You need to be well rounded on all equipment to really make it in this business.
