    I worked at Grid One Solutions, Inc. as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of independence after proving you can preform the work successfully.
    Everyday you got to experience different parts of the state (Maine), and interesting characters.
    Decent compensation for a temporary position.

    Cons

    Repetitive work.
    Limited advancement unless you desire to travel to new contracts in different states.
    Supervisors stretched thin and ragged, while tech's had more freedom.
    Most tech's were milking the job, while a select few actually performed most of the work.

    Hire more supervisors.

    Mandatory 2 saturdays on before one off(can work all saturdays)There is a quota of installs daily. Management encourges staying in field to meet quota without payment for additional time spent.Management uses a no walls style disipline ,your business is available for anyone else within hearing distant.Management will remind you that 1000's of people want your job and you should get the job done or you will be let go.This is a project job no guarentee of employment after the project is complete.June,July,August hot months to be wearing t-shirt and long sleeve fire retardant shirt and heavy fire retardant jeans in addition to hard hat with shield when in front of meter change out,boots and special gloves also worn.

    Buy decent printers and cartridges for supervisors so they can stop using that excuse for not getting stuff printed.Make sure trainers are all training the same way.Make and distribute instructions on how to best utilize handhelds & any tips that are proven to decrease time between installs.
