Early starts with early quits. Can make 760 $ followed by two days off. At other times work once a week while collecting a 2800$ guarrantee

Cons

Stressfull job : jumping on & off moving equipment, climbing on & off cars, carrying switch lists, radio gloves, safety glasses, loud noises. A good portion of fellow workers are uneducated & hostile for some reason.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. Most people just want to get fair paid wages for a fair days of work, but I could see the company take advantage of employees. Forcing employees to work in duties that they were not hired to perform.

    Cons

    Many innovative ideas at hand, but are all getting shot down by upper management. Upper management seems to be afraid of change, so we're stuck not really moving forward. Way too much bureaucracy and red tape to deal with. Union and management relations are extremely poor.

    Advice to Management

    CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE!!! Embrace it, don't be afraid. The new demographics of the company will screw you over if you do not accept that this is the future. Stop being stuck in the old ways of doing things. This is no longer a market in which employers come to get hired and stay here for life if they are not being treated accordingly. Employees have lots of options nowadays and you're going to experience a brain-drain that's going to put your company's business into a grinding halt if you do not adapt.
