I worked at Blaine Tech Services full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good experience in the field that can later provide opportunities in the consulting industry. For that reason only is why I recommend this company.

Cons

Training is weak and their focus is money money money just like any other firm under subcontract. They are the fast food chain of the environmental industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to management is worthless. They pay what they want and they still get the applications they want.

    Pros

    You get to work with clients from all kinds of environmental consulting firms, a great way to expand your network.

    If you don't like being in an office and prefer to be in the field, this place can be pretty good for you.

    Cons

    50+ hour work weeks are pretty much the norm, 10-11 hour days. This could be seen as a pro as its hourly so there's plenty of overtime but at the same time it can take a toll on your social life.

    The occasional night or weekend work

    I have been working at Blaine Tech Services full-time

    Pros

    Field techs are given lots of responsibilities and get lots of exposure and face time with many env. consulting clients. Some time will be spent prepping in the office in the morning/evening, but this is definitely an outdoor job. Long hours, lots of opportunities for OT (45-55 hours/week). Starting rate is $16/hr with performance reviews and opportunities for raises at 6 month intervals.

    Cons

    The work can be overwhelming initially. The in office training is slightly helpful, but the real training exists in the field with the other techs. You determine how fast you learn and how soon you will be ready to work on your own! This is not necessarily a con, but something to be aware of. Long hours - a pro or con depending on your outlook. The alternative work schedule only lasts a couple months, or until you are independent and can make the company money by working on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees with the promised 5th day off! Overworking the techs is a big reason for the high turnover.
