Job is what you make of it
Satellite Cable Installation Technician (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – April 13, 2016
I worked for DirecTV through MasTec. I loved that you don't always have a manager breathing down your neck. You're out on your own getting jobs done at your own pace. With that being said, it's up to you to get work done in a timely manner, but also to spend enough time to get the job done the right way. But they pay piece-work, which is not good. There's no way to predict how much you will make, which makes it impossible to budget. You have no control over the work you get, so sometimes you make decent money and sometimes you'll make $20 on a job that took you 4 hours to complete.
