It's hot and one of the busiest times for air conditioning repair companies. Technicians are not only get a lot of calls from customers but from other companies wanting to hire them.
"Companies always want the best guys," said Jeremy Parks, a technicians with Fahnstock Heating and Cooling. "I received a phone call the other day."
That phone call came from another company wanting to hire him. He and managers from other companies say that during this time of year, that's not unusual.
It's a practice that's been going on for years. Head hunters swoop in during this busy time trying to hire away experienced workers. It drives up competition for wages and benefits.
