Before we start working we get trained in the classroom about safety, and in the field by a supervisor on how to change the meters. A typical day would be getting counted in at the warehouse,getting a daily route sheet, stocking the company vehicle with the amount of meters we need. After that we have a meeting with everybody and talk about issues or what we're doing right, then we leave the warehouse for our route which we do by ourselves, then we come back at the end of the day to get counted again. I learned how to change electric meters, what the risks are, and how to use the handheld device while we change them. We don't really converse with our co workers except for in the morning before we leave and after we get back.The hardest part of the job sometimes is finding the houses or meters if its a pole or pedestal, sometimes the covers are tough to get back on and latch up also. The most enjoyable part of the job is the freedom we have because we're by ourselves all day. What I don't like about it is that we don't get paid by the hour, we get paid by the meter. I started at $2.14 per meter and since its tougher during the winter they raised it to $3. That also makes it so we don't get any paid sick days or vacations because the money we make varies by the day. We also don't get many benefits, if any at all.
