    I worked at Advanced Communications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned how to install cable likes and I was able to fix a lot around my home and my parents home that I couldn't do before.

    Cons

    The way the pay structure works you often end up making minimum wage. You work 50-60 hours a week and the pay is horrible

    Advice to Management

    Actually manage, don't just sit in your office all day watching movies. What a joke

    I worked at Advanced Communications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing I can say is a " Pro" is the coworkers (Not Management), they are all in the same boat IE: Glutton for Punishment!

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! The management is HORRIBLE and will constantly talk behind your back, the pay is god awful and they are always finding ways to deduct from your checks. The hours, well they expect you to be there for OT and on weekends and do not really compensate for it. Turn over is extremely high, 11 people quit within 2 weeks while I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, pay them better, treat them better and maybe just maybe your company will get out of the red and actually be respectable again. But then again that is highly doutbtful!

    Pros

    They hired me without experience
    The work itself was interesting
    Training was good at first

    Cons

    They said no travel required in interview, then sent me to work 3 hours away as soon as training was over. They required me to take the company vehicle home and charged me $60 a week, which caused me to earn less than min wage after training. They gave me a signal meter, necessary for the job, that didn't work and wouldn't replace it, making my work painstaking to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Give your techs the gear they need! Don't pay less than min wage.

    Pros

    Unlimited overtime opportunities, decent pay, great benefits and perks if you were in management or administration. Casual, laid back work environment made for a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the "good times" did get in the way of productivity after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Value your technicians as much as you value your management team, they work just as hard, if not harder.
