Research at the only company that would do such research has shown that the MOST productive and cost effective technician is 3 years. That is the point where the skill set is developed and before the time when wage, age, and career dissatisfaction arise. From the standpoint of experience, a guy with 10+ years is the worst. Most difficult to train, most likely to get injured, highest paid, most bitterness from still doing the job.
