    Pros

    Company truck, overtime when you want it, work alone and at your pace, you get opportunities to travel with company, good pay, always enough work for hours, gas card, weekly pay.

    Cons

    Communication between tech and management/supervisors. Need better equipment to work with. Drive cams don’t help the tech, they are a distraction!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Check on techs throughout the day if you need to make changes, don’t just change stuff and wait for the tech to notice. Also get the best of the best equipment to make sure we provide the best service possible.
