    Pros

    Fantastic work-life balance, cutting edge tech, great industry, laid back managerial staff

    Cons

    Houston office is a satellite office from the Canadian home office. That can create a disconnect in communication sometimes. Production issues can cause a "firefighter" mentality that can bog down development sometimes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Pason Systems (Odessa, TX).

    Interview

    I saw this company in Indeed.com. Sent in an application, I received a phone call from an area manager he conducted a quick phone interview liked what he heard, set up a ride along then a face to face. The ride along lasted 12 hrs and was supposed to be more like 8, glad I packed a lunch...... The face to face was with 2 area managers and 2 other field techs. Mostly simple questions about my resume and experience. I was told that this is a very labor intensive job with lots of hours and I would have to travel for 3 months while in training. At one point a field tech told me that he had worked a 26 hr shift a couple days ago and that those kind of hrs happen once a month or so. I was also told that they would have to interview my wife so she understood how much I would be away from home and to pretty much make sure she wouldn't get in the way of me being gone all the time. This is not an hourly position and starting salary was 65k a year NON negotiable. Bonuses are between 8 and 12k a year depending on performance and how much revenue you bring in.
