    I worked at USIC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pretty consistent work available; Once trained you're not overly micromanaged

    Cons

    In some areas you wind up overworked and underpaid if they don't want to hire more people on, We had a high turn over so we spend A TON of time training new techs just to have them quit suddenly.
