Pros: pay, company truck, gas card, benefits, good training program
Cons: working outdoors, sometimes jobs take longer than expected
I've worked for two different cable contracting companies and prefer AM Communications by far.
It's a stable job with good pay and plenty of work. It's cable installation, so sure, there are evening and weekend hours, because that's when customers are home. I have a family to support so I'll take all the overtime I can get.
And sometimes it is cold, hot or wet working outdoors, but I get a company truck to drive and get to work independently throughout the day. I don't usually need help, but the managers and other technicians are there if I need them. I've also had the chance to train new employees and to travel to other cities to work when I wanted to.
