    I have been working at LinkUs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If this job is for you, you'll make a pretty descent living. It is generally piecework as a technician so you do have to "earn" it. Just merely showing up for work isn't going to be enough. If that is you, go work at McDonalds. Within 3 years of employment I was making 60K + a year. They have paid training, Vacation time, 401K, Health insurance, and a company profit sharing program.

    Cons

    It can be stressful, some performance goals can be hard to meet on a constant basis. (However this company strives to be the best at what they do, so setting goals high is important.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Dispatch office needs to work more closely with the Field Service Managers that are in charge of some of the more rural areas in order to increase efficiency. If it is inefficient for the company, it is inefficient for the technicians aswell. It would increase moral by ten fold.

    Pros

    They are always hiring technicians. They teach you the trade (paid training). More experienced co-workers are willing to help you out if you need it.

    Cons

    It takes time to get fast at doing the job, and they expect you to be perfect all of the time gets old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Threats are not means of motivation.

    Company lacked concern for employees, was focus on themselves.

    Pros

    I really can't think of any pros to this company. They allow unethical things to happen to their employees by management and do nothing about it.

    Cons

    Management was unprofessional, holidays off were not a guarantee, you begin to accrue 3 days of vacation after 1 year of service. The technicians were paid minimum wage and required to work a lot of overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the needs of your employees and not just yourself.

    I worked at LinkUs full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Overall there are no pros to this company. You will make decent money, but at the cost of 70+ hour work weeks and being thought of as nothing more than a set of numbers.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor morals, high turnover, poor management, poor communication, deceit about competitive wages and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management will not address any concerns that you may have regarding safety, your "competitive" pay, or "amazing" benefits.

    I have been working at LinkUs

    Pros

    You get good training and the potenetial to make a lot of money. I have had thousand dollar weeks before. Depending on which office you work out of it can be a good job but demanding.

    Cons

    Your pay is not hourly its by the job. Its on a point scale and yourpaid so much a point starting out is usually $2.50 a point and they figure 6 points an hour you can work up to $3.50 a point but its hard. Thier are lots of things that are not in your control that can make your per point amount go up or down.
