Horrible

Field Service Technician (Current Employee)
Rock Tavern, NY

ProsPlenty of overtime whether you want it or not. On your own after training period. All tools provided by the company. Two week training at a regional training center. Four day work weeks were the best.

ConsManagement that is looking to treat you like a child. Use of scare tactics is the norm. If you don't meet certain points requirements that were well above the minimum your manager would not receive his bonus and went after those employees. Horrible equipment, Call center employees and service techs were never on the same page. All 4 of us hired at one time were lied to about when to sign up for health benefits and missed the cut off date.

Advice to Senior ManagementJump in a vehicle and understand your equipment sounds great on paper but is terrible. Listen to employees more than management, they are the ones actually dealing with the issues the a plaguing your company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
