Field Operations Technician (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, ILDecember 21, 2016
I really enjoyed working for this company. no house is the same and working with customers has its own challenges but is very rewarding
you start work at 8am precisely, you cannot be late. the day ends when the work is done, that does not mean 4 pm, or whatever a typical day is, some days i would get home at noon and some days i would get home at 8pm.

They do not have an hourly rate it's all pay per job. that being said it's not a scam, i was a slower tedchnician and i made around 32k this year. some techs make well over double, it really just depends on your speed and proficiency.

Overall, if given the chance i would work for this company again.
Pros
good wages.
Cons
if you take lunch you're forcing yourself into working late

Goodman Networks had big vision but less motived actions.
Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GADecember 18, 2016
Goodman purchased the engineering organization of Lucent Technologies along with the management structure. Our tools and systems remained the same because Goodman did not have their own. Seven years later that was still the situation. The revenue relied on one customer for 85% of its work; which did not grow the business.
Worked with some wonderful people but as the years passed and the workforce dwindled each year, it became a depressing place to work. Everyone felt the pressure of the ax handle and wondered when it would hit them.
Pros
Ability to work from home
Cons
Steady decline of revenue results steady decline in workforce

Goodman Networks covers all job related expenses. This includes vehicle, vehicle maintenance, and tools. Training is done at regional site. During training travel is not reimbursed so plan ahead or car pool.

A fun if challenging job
Inventory Cordinater (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, ILNovember 28, 2016
The typical day started of a little relaxed but would speed up rather quickly and it would stay that way most of the day until about the last hour at which point it would slow down again.

Job carries from day to day, always something and someone new. The hardest part of this job is managing home life with work because you don’t know when you will get home.

Construction Manager (Former Employee) –  Farmers Branch, TXNovember 2, 2016
Goodman gave me a chance and introduction to the Telecommunications industry. I was on multiple projects and learned a lot about the industry. A lot of diversity and very professional good people to work with. Sub-contractors as well were also amazing people who gave their all to "get the job done". Creativity and innovation were the core of the environment, as each project presented new challenges.
Pros
Great people, flexible schedule, ownership of responsibilities
Cons
lots of travel, not a high balance of personal life vs. work
