Good Job, just don't work for the Baltimore Office

Field Technician (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

ProsThere is good compensation and benefits on paper. The reality is the hours are insane more than 70 hours a week are required. There is no overtime pay, they tell you if you turn in a time sheet that shows more than 40 hours you will be written up and eventually fired. The management is extremely disorganized. Things were on the way to improving but I'd be surprised if there is any significant improvement without major management changes. All this being said, from the people I've met it seems clear that it is not like this in other shops.

ConsThe catty nature of the management (it's not all of them, but i would say most)... The Lack of overtime pay. They say it's piece rate, but the piece rate it too low with out the hourly cushion. Start at 6 am with the latest appointment potentially starting at 8pm six days a week? Pay me overtime I deserve it.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet it together and stop asking techs to work without pay.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
