Dispatcher-fast paced, detail oriented, and multi task.
Dispatcher/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Hendersonville, TNDecember 1, 2013
I have learned so much working for FTS. We have a family type setting, so its much more relaxed than most places. Management is excellent and understanding. The hardest part of the job is keeping it pleasant for the technicians. Their jobs are very stressful and very demanding. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning new facets of the job and – more... applying them. – less

Productive workplace with good values
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Hendersonville, TNOctober 4, 2013
I work 10+ hour days. Being in the cable business, I learned about cable and the various areas of cable. The installs, billing, tools, etc... In each job I attain, I like to learn each and every aspect I can. If any area needs help, I like to be able to pitch in when I can. I learned the various Microsoft office applications. Excel being the major one. – more... Multitasking is a major part of my job. Several reports are going at one time, while I'm on the phone, while I'm helping a technician close a job. I'd prefer not to comment on Management.. I get along well with all of my coworkers. We all help each other grow and succeed. The hardest part of my job would have to be the long days. I'd prefer a job working 5 days a week, 6 if necessary, 8 hours a day. The most enjoyable part would have to be my coworkers. We all get along and some of us hang out outside of the workplace. – less

Decent Pay to Sit All Day
Dispatch (Current Employee), King of Prussia, PAMay 5, 2013
Pros: 3 days off, incentives to make money, they bring in food a lot, and have parties. loud ghetto co workers
Cons: monotous, long days, boring and unstable work.
Honestly the only thing I can say I really don't like is the office politics, which the old supervisors participated in. The pay was enough to live off, barely. If you have any children or debt you would need a second income. However there are plenty incentives if you are motivated to attain them. 4 Day work weeks, gives you three days off which is – more... nice. Not a hard job, one of my coworkers is fresh from high school, wide age range although a lot of people act childish. They lay people off alot. The entire crew I came in with are gone but me and someone else, I have been here a year and a half. Most people are here for a while though, it's wierd, depends on how busy the season is. – less

A construction company in which was physically demanding.
Scanner Operator (Former Employee), Tampa, FlJuly 2, 2012
Pros: no set or determined breaks or lunches
Cons: working outside and no air conditioner or plumbing for toilets.
A typical day at work at FTS entailed working in the elements. I learned to operate the street sweeper, the water truck and the roller.
The hardest part of the job was working outside and running the roller on very steep areas. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with diversity.

Company Had Potential
DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 19, 2012
Pros: potential growth
Cons: principle would not make the necessary investments originally promised across the board
Work days were long and arduous but rewarding based upon growth and client satisfaction.

I learned to understand different approaches from non-construction experienced individuals regarding finishes and expectations in taste.

The co-workers where not as skilled as I would have liked and I made initial changes once underway.

The hardest part of the – more... day was dealing with some clients who where obviously medicated in one way or another.

The most enjoyable part of the job was winning over and ultimately satisfying the client, even under extreme circumstances and obstacles. Staying the course! – less
