Pros: Freedom, travel, meet new people
Cons: scheduling, respect to technicians
Basically you drive to locations provided via an online platform. Appointments can be set with short notice as a few hours or as long as a few days.
Job is to install electronic devices on various types of vehicles via a precise set of standards. Documentation of installation is imperative.
The management in this company is probably the biggest weakness.
Pay is typically $16/hr plus benefits as an employ or $30 per vehicle as a contractor or $60 per vehicle as a territory manager.
The worst part is the scheduling, scheduling platform and redundant documentation per each install.
So, typically you may have 4 cars in a given day, sometimes none other times 8 or more.
You must acknowledge each job, then acknowledge in route to the job, then acknowledge arrival to the job, then find the vehicle (if dealer), then document the install, perform the installation under various conditions (heat, rain or other), test the installation, Document various steps with photo's, complete documentation and close the job.
The job may take 15 minutes, but everything else can add 30 minutes.
The best part of the job is you are on your own and you can pretty much work at your pace.
I learned where LoJack gets installed on vehicles.
Some of the people are totally awesome and great to be around.
I was operating as a contractor under another company.
