      I worked at Sunstate Equipment full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Par pay & benefits are typical, you will make an extra 15-20 hours overtime, but not worth it

      Cons

      Ancient equipment that never gets serviced, techs that have no diagnostic skills, lazy techs, lazy drivers, incompetent managers, no training, wont step into the future, rely on old technology and outdated tools, no company e mail, no company phone, cant take truck home, you have to let whoever is on call use your truck and tools, more concerned about tech appearance than performance of equipment.

      Advice to Management

      Change the top command that have been there for 40 years because this isnt 1980's anymore. Get a newer, more high tech educated staff to control the maintenance side.
