    Pros

    The company provides a work van and allows the technicians to take the van home. This saves on fuel expenses for the technician. There is a good amount of freedom provided to the technicians to allow them to prioritize the work that needs to be performed. The working conditions are generally clean and the atmosphere is positive.

    Cons

    The yearly raises are only 2 to 2.5% per year. The cost of living goes up by 4 to 4.5% annually. This means that after 10 years of service an employee will actually be 20% poorer than when he/she started. When a technician is promoted from FSR1 to FSR2 or FSR2 to FSR3 there is no pay raise. There is no room for advancement. The technicians that are working in the field either have been or will be working the same routes in 10 to 20 years. Along the way more workload is added and there is no fiscal compensation. For the degree of technical expertise that is required to perform the job the compensation is below the lowest amount in a comparable range for other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your most valuable asset...your employees. Provide them with compensation with which their lives may flourish.
