Pros: Good people to work with, Most of the other managers were very helpful
Cons: Lots of windshield time
I held several positions at GTE. R&L Drafter, Customer service, Storeroom helper, Facilities tech and Buildings Supervisor.
Last position my work day would meet with the local building tech and the two local A/C techs. Go over the jobs and see what they have done. I would contact the out of town building tech by phone and go over all items we could by that method. I would travel to his location and go over all items we needed to check physically. I would travel to all buildings on a set but changeable schedule to visually check all items I needed to see. Travelled with managers and engineers to check on problems with buildings, conducted walk throughs for janitorial contracts, lined up contractors and vendors for out of town locations and did the same for newly acquired buildings due to company merger. Management would work with you and see that you had all the help you needed. I had a good group of techs working with me. Hardest part was the going to all the locations that I acquired with the merger. This included the area from the Oklahoma border to Glen Rose and Fairfield. I had a small telephone switch building in the town of, yes, Telephone. I did get to see a lot of the country.
