    I have been working at Digital Reception Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Huge earning potential. -Great people (From the top to the bottom. My ROM is one of the nicest guys and is super positive and supportive. My FSM is so extremely knowledgeable and always provides support when I need it. Most of my fellow techs are amazing people that make me look forward to getting to work each morning just to catch up with them. They are always willing to answer the phone and answer a question throughout the day.). -Goal oriented structure. Hit your metrics, make more $$$! -PTO, holiday pay -Always gaining new skills. -Company van, gas card. -Bonus potential. Company offers different types of bonuses. -Many more.

    Cons

    -Sometimes extremely long work days. -Some 6 day work weeks and sometimes the schedule changes and nobody tells you. -Sometimes routes can change or a job gets cancelled or added and you have to drive very far to the next job. -Sometimes you’ll be almost done with your route and more jobs just pop in without even a phone call to ask if you want to work late. You are just expected to complete your route. It can seem that you get punished for being fast and doing a great job. -Some 60+ hour work weeks. But you get paid by what you complete so if you want to make a lot of money and don’t mind working hard for it then you’ll have a huge potential to earn lots of money.

    Pros

    Excellent pay that you cannot find anywhere else. You get back what you put in. If you put in 100% you will make $1000-$1500 a WEEK... If you put in 50% work, You won't be there long. Company take-home vehicle, Gas card, Phone, and all tools paid for. Corporate office is in Tampa, So upper management presence is strong in the Tampa office, Which is sometimes nice to see them around and they know you on a first name basis.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to move up within the company. Moving up comes with a huge pay cut for most techs. Most techs made 55-80k/Year, and managers start at 40k.

    I worked at Digital Reception Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brought food to the table and gave me three weeks of paid vacation to get away from that place

    Cons

    12-16 hour days, A slow season that gets worse year by year which puts you getting sent home due to "lack of work" continuously changing schedule from 4 days to working 6 days a week so your check varies by hundreds of dollars, No seniority,Pay structure changes every quarter they always ask for more, nothing is never enough!

    Pros

    Everyone here is willing to help one another, it's a real team atmosphere. DRS invests in their people. Leadership is very engaged with employees and is welcoming to new ideas.
