    Decent pay, truck, gas card and tools. Flexible hours and a great team of technicians makes ii the reason to be there.

    Cons

    This is a performance based job that although it can keep you on your toes also keeps you stressed out due to the high demands.

    Advice to Management

    A more positive and encouraging top to bottom management style would help create a more inviting environment.

    I have been working at MasTec Advanced Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    all DirecTV channels free, just pay $7 lease fee per receiver. Dont have to see your boss everyday.

    Cons

    piecework pay scale, if customers are not home or no line of sight for satellites = $0. Pay is good for Techs that get good routes and are fast. Work weekends, holidays, 6 days one week and 5 the next week(summer months 12+ hours a day). Leave work van at warehouse or pay $40 a week to take home.

    Advice to Management

    work out a system to get teams a full weekend off, and have the other 4 teams pick up the slack. When you get home at 8pm the night before your day off, the day off really doesnt help, Us technicians are getting worn out and you wonder why so many techs are quitting.

    Pros

    Sprint Direct2You Program
    Great benefits
    Excellent Pay
    Loved my co-workers and management

    Cons

    Laid off with only two days notice and got a bogus $500 severance pay taxed to $200.

    Advice to Management

    The Direct2You Management was excellent, as far as MasTec management if they could do better.

  8. "Great Company"

    Pros

    Great Company with Great Employees.

    Cons

    Spent too much money on conferences and such. Seemed to worry more about upper managment and their jobs instead of worrying about the employees in the trenches that really made the wheels of the business turn.

    I have been working at MasTec Advanced Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and insurance.

    Cons

    AT&T took over Directv and completely make the job so tedious, makes the days longer and resent my day out in the field. Why does the whole team suffer when one Tech screws up? These dumb rules and requirements that we have to do one when someone messes up screws with my money, time, and my livleyhood.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging everything and reward the techs who actually do their job correctly. And stop beating everyone down in weekly meetings, we already have to deal with annoying customers on a daily basis and drive around all day with dispatch's stupid routes, the last thing anyone wants to hear is your negative inputs every week in our meetings.
