As much work has you can handle and more...
Tech (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 6, 2016
One thing Mastec doesn't lack is available overtime. You can make a great deal of money, if your willing to do the work. You might find that after awhile your personal life begins to suffer. One of the most common complaints is that we can never get home at a decent hour. It makes for high turn over rates, which creates a whole host of different problems.

A very friendly workplace enviroment that does not have quite the same pressure as larger fast paced companies.
Sandblaster (Former Employee) –  Pearsall, TXSeptember 23, 2013
A typical day with Mastec begins with being on the right-of-way before 7:00 a.m. and leaving around 5:00 a.m. Many of the employees and management interact in more of a family style manner. The management to does not constantly pressure the employees but they still ensure that the job is completed properly, safely, and in the time specified. Although it is a smaller company, there is room for growth because no one is looking over their shoulder. This company also offers benefits for their employees.
Pros
benefits, room for advancement, and friendly work enviroment.
Cons
alternating seven day work week, and little personal time.

Room For Growth
Staff Accountant / Billing (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLApril 9, 2016
There is absolutely no room for growth within the company. It is a man's world here and it is about who you know in order to move up in the ladder they would rather hire someone they know from outside than let you grow within the company and expand your wings.

A lawsuit waiting to happen.A disgrace to the industry.
Tech (Current Employee) –  dallass, TXJanuary 8, 2015
Sounds like a reality tv plot. Take a satellite T.V. company let them install alarm equiptment without any comprehension of alarms,device placement,how to talk professionally with customers and you guessed it mayhem and bad installs are born.The company pretends to care about customers and employees and its all a act. The techs are good people but have no one to train them.The DLC which is the main control seems good conceptually but in reality is worthless and to call it trash would insult trash.If a company looks like it has no regard for ,acts like it has no regard for people then as with the case is for Mastec has no regard for its people and are quick to throw those who they don't want or can't exploit under the bus.Lower level supervisors protect their turf and quickly get rid of all threats to their turf,Bonuses are never given when deserved and raises are only in their eyebrows if you dare ask for one.ATT micromanages like the great and powerfull oz behind the curtain and feigns ignorance at all the bad craftsmanship and mistreatment of customers and employees.
Pros

Not a goof company
Telecommunication Equipment Installer (Former Employee) –  RaleighDecember 22, 2014
The company purposely hires people they consider to have less intelligence and then mistreats them. The level of prejudice that exists is astounding. The pay is low, the benefits are that of third-world compensation and management is less interested in leadership . The company is built on the back of un-professionalism, with leadership using abusive language and mistreating technicians. The company does not like to pay for work performed and it uses this to leverage excessive work out of employees.
Cons
where do i begin!

Satellite Tech (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth TxOctober 24, 2014
Impressing Customers with product outcome
Learned the science behind the job
My field manager was very attentive and understanding
My co-workers responded with additional equipment when I needed assistance. A lot of friendly employees
I enjoyed my classmates during training
The most enjoyable part of the job was being on your own. I didn't have someone coming up behind me or keeping tabs on me. Other than quality checking my work on a random basis, I loved being my own person
Pros
good pay and benefits
Cons
long hours and certain locations of install

Opinion
Directv Tech. (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLApril 12, 2012
Difficult, with low pay for unskilled labor. The "score" sheet is set up against you. An employee can lose his raise just because of the actions of the customer, at no fault to the tech. Everyone who works for this company absolutely hates it, but stay because a job is better than no job. That is actually the saying you hear from the management. You can spend 4 hours working on a house and only be paid 20 dollars. Going home is the most enjoyable part of that job. You are paid at piece rate, which means the faster you can install the more you can make. If you don't make enough in 40 hours, they just pay you minimum wage.
Pros
minimal
Cons
great deal of them...
