    Pros

    We receive piece work pay. On an average day I'll make $160, on a great day $300.

    Advice to Management

    The supervisors are on the technicians side, every time. As far as I'm concerned, keep up the good work.

    Great Benefits
    Great Co-Workers

    Cons

    Long Hours
    Expected to be Available 24/7. Even on PTO.
    Difficult Work/Life Balance

    Advice to Management

    I worked for the company for over 6 years. I gave notice because of a great opportunity for my future and was given the cold shoulder until I walked out the door. My boss, who is a VP, did not even show up to shake my hand on the way out.

    Show a little gratitude to people who give years and thousands of hours of their lives for this company.
