      Pros

      See a lot of new places during travel , Nobody's breathing down your neck while your working, and lots of overtime if you want it. Also a company provided vehicle and expense card.

      Cons

      Most technician to start under $20 a hour which is a joke for the amount of work that you are required to do. They expect you to be and electrician, mechanic, machinist, and many other job titles that get paid a lot more that we do. This company does not believe in part drop locations in your area so you will constantly have FedEx package shipped to your home which weigh and absurd amount and if you don't have a place to put them your house/car will look like a junkyard. The amount of stress to you mind and body is crazy, you will not go 2 days without a insulting or harassing email from some out of touch jerk from the home office asking for information you already provided or demanding you to do something that you are not required to do. When you are hire you are told you will only travel within a 45 mile radius of your home and only have a hour and a half travel time at the most between site but that is not even close to what will really happen. If your shift is 7am to 3:30pm don't expect to get home until 6 or 7pm. The staff is a revolving door, most people put in there two weeks notice before they finish there first 90 days. The higher higher-ups likes to tell employees to put their family first on company conference calls but you are constantly asked/ordered to work on your days off and every single holiday except Christmas and thanksgiving which you will not receive any type of holiday pay for at all, this is a first in my career, no time and a half no double pay, even Walmart and McDonald's give holiday pay. They constantly make promises to there customers that they can not keep because they don't have enough technicians to do the actual work on time and correctly. There is little to no training is provided and the resources available as far as a knowledge base is a joke. So if your not great at trouble shoot every kind of piece of equipment known to man prepare yourself to be set up for failure. Every technician I know Who are good at their jobs are currently looking for new employment or has already quit including myself.
