    Pros

    The local management are really good to work with. They are very understandable when it comes to family emergencies. They provide a company vehicle to work from and they pay for the gas. Also, they provide their employees with the necessary tool and equipment. In addition, they provide their employees with free cable tv, internet, and home phone.

    Cons

    They do not provide a lot of training any more, it is pretty much hands on training. The communication between departments is horrible and almost non existent. The local management is great and they listen to our concerts, but the upper management has deaf ears to our complaints.

    Pros

    Great benefits including the opportunity for great pay, overall freedom to come into your own as part of a great team. Morale is usually great, healthy and friendly competition and a team that has your back. I feel like when I get tired of working in my department I will be able to move either vertically or horizontally. I look forward to every day, and love what I do. If you are hungry for success, make this career move. I have held many jobs but this is the one I want to retire from.

    Cons

    When you interview they tell you of a 6 figure earning potential, many on here complain they lie. They do not lie, the opportunity is there it is up to you, do not expect 6 figures on a 40 hour work week, like all great sales Careers, the money is there if you want to earn it. The stress of the job can get to you every now and then, but sales is 90% mental, THIS JOB IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. It will take a lot out of you but return more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel like the direction Charter is taking will have a great outcome for the company and employees together!

    Pros

    1 week vacation after 6 months then accrue another week in first year, good benefit package, decent pay

    Cons

    Management has no clue of how to maximize technician productivity and create policy after policy to make day to day work nearly impossible and sets everyone up for failure. Very hard to promote up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to ideas and suggestions for employees who perform the work every day, take care of your employees especially those who have shown a dedication to the company.
