    I worked at Day Wireless Systems full-time

    Pros

    There are some profession people who work there, however, most of them flee after experiencing the daily high school drama of the operations

    Cons

    High turn over rate due to the gossip and drama of the family owned business that has not graduated from the year 1985

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, its not the 80's it's not okay to judge someone because they are not physically fit or good looking. Judge people on their abilities not their looks.

    I have been working at Day Wireless Systems full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment, steady schedule, good management, a lot of learning opportunities to increase your sales opportunities. Low pressure sales floor.

    Cons

    There are some very inefficient systems in place that can waste time. Can be a steep learning curve for some.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your sales people because they are the driving force behind the company's growth and profitability.

    I worked at Day Wireless Systems (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training, decent benefits, a ton of variety in work. When I worked there, I had a lot of autonomy. When a new project came in, they would ask me how much time I needed to complete it, and would only be held accountable to the time I said I could do it in. Also, management would usually defer to the expertise of the employees. We would be handed a project or job by the management, and put in our own parts and labor estimates. If it was profitable and competitive, they would give it to the customer If not, they'd sit down with you and work the numbers until it was. I had great admiration and respect for the manager and assistant manager at that office. Probably the best managers I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    The pay was frustrating. Everyone's salary was a secret. I found out that another, less productive employee made $3 more than me, so I approached management. They raised my wage even higher than I asked for. Right before I left, I found out that a long-time technician I worked with occasionally made even less than I had originally.

    the other thing was that 90% of the work was with government agencies, but somehow, didn't qualify for prevailing wage labor unless the agency specified that it did. But by state law labor carried out for the government , outside of maintenance work, should be considered prevailing wage, or if federal, covered under the Davis Bacon Act. We were told that our benefits put us over the wage threshold for prevailing wage, but everywhere else I worked, prevailing wage was prevailing wage. If they just paid prevailing wage all the time, I'd probably still work there.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize your pay system. Nothing makes employees angrier than finding out the guy next to you gets paid more for doing the same job. You also need to come up with some way to provide incentives for high performers. Having career development planning wouldn't hurt either. Day Wireless could be Such a great company to work for if you just made a few changes.

    Was exposed to some really advanced radio communication technology.

    Uniforms all the time, never been my thing.
