Power Engineer's interview with Young Warren

Young Warren the Power Engineer 

Join us on Facebook at Power and Stationary Engineers

He is new to the business (As of 2001).

Get this. Warren’s father is a Stationary Engineer and didn’t want Warren to know too much about Stationary Engineering. His Dad wanted him to go to University and be a doctor or a lawyer and not be a Stationary Engineer. He didn’t tell Warren much about Stationary Engineer. Probably because he thought Warren would actually like it to the point where he would want to be a Stationary Engineer and not a doctor or a lawyer. Nothing wrong with being a doctor or a lawyer. What is important is being what you want to be.

At the time Warren graduated from high school he didn’t want to be any of the above and so he decided to become an environmentalist and get his diploma. After acquiring his diploma in Land Resource Management he worked at it for about 5 years in the oil fields. Problem was, he found it to be low paying. There was limited opportunity for variety or advancement and most of the people in it had high ideals but no integrity. For the most part they were hypocrites he says. Needless to say Warren was disillusioned.

During his time as an environmentalist he spoke to people in the oil business like, field hands and plant personnel about Stationary Engineer. He spoke to his father about it and pumped everybody for information as well as researched it at a technical institution. Most of the valuable info came from the people working in the business. So at 26 years of age and after 5 years of being an environmentalist he quit and went back to school to become what his father didn’t want him to be, a Stationary Engineer.

Warren’s reasons for getting into Stationary Engineering:

  1. Benefits up to the eyeballs.
  2. The opportunity to master the operation of various types of equipment. He likes the challenge.
  3. The opportunity to move around in a large corporation to do a variety of jobs as he may qualify for. Warren has a desire to be more involved in corporate life as time goes on and he may very well have that opportunity if he plays his cards right.
  4. Stability of employment.
  5. The pay scale is heads above most everything else out there.
  6. He likes the idea of shift work. Like most of us, he believes if you sacrifice a little you get a lot more. Working the 12 hour shifts gives you lots of time off to enjoy the good things in life for a longer stretch of time. This makes for more quality time.
Warren’s advice:

Take the time to research your career and career options. Go to a job site and check things out. Hang around with someone on a job site to gain greater insight into what it is all about.


Warren has found himself full time employment as of October 10th, 2002 close to home with great pay and benefits. Smooth operating Warren!!
