MastecAT in Summerville, SC was an experience. The money is good if your willing to sacrifice every aspect of your life whether it be family, social and etc to putting the company first. The hours are long but again the pay is worth it if your willing to go get it. Management is a joke. The most commonly used phrase by management "Make it work" or "Get it done" no matter the situation or problem. If you are young, single, no social life and without children this is a great job to get lost in. If you have a family or social life you may want to look elsewhere.

Great company with great diversity. Middle and upper management is under a great deal of pressure to perform in a market that has never been able to perform well due to the demographics and the geographical area. I have seen the best of the best fail and the long term employees go by the waste side in a cut throat industry.
good schedule, promotes from within.
Pending corporate buyout lingers with little or no communication.
Project Controls Lead Scheduler (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 20, 2017
I only worked here for a very short time and in that time i was very disappointed with almost every aspect of this company. The pay and benefits are good but almost every other aspect of the company is poorly managed. Its a fairly young company and it shows.
Pay and processes adequate, Corporate bureaucracy lacking
Field Manager (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – January 17, 2017
Work environment was typical of telecommunications construction, pay was good, co workers were solid, but purchase of work materials and company gas cards were slow to trickle down. Tools were not provided in a timely manner, most of the tools I had to purchase myself, and had to wait to get refunded by the company at least 3-4 weeks. I enjoyed the perks of a larger corporate structure where hard work was rewarded and they looked after job security for everyone who wanted to stay with company. Unfortunately management at the higher levels were unable to make changes so that we could retain the main contract, and work fell through because of it.
Job Security, Healthcare, Company Truck/phone
10-12 hour work days, worked weekends, stressful job requirements at times
This is a company for digital alarm system the work is based on residential areas only the people was great but has bad management they hired to many technician for the amount of work they had and laid off 30% of there technician.although the technicians there always made a healthy environment to work with
Manegment no paid hollidays and allot less vacation time
They hire you with a promise of a high rate and after they down play your hours and your wages. Once your working they tell you you gonna make $16.75 the hour then demote your pay after training and tell you the minimum you make is $14.75 the hour then tell you now you earn piece rate! It sucks to go to work not knowing what your pay check is gonna look like for 2 weeks! Several guys would come home with a bi-weekly check of $800 that's like working minimum wage at a temp agency! Also they never give you work in your area! You must be at a customers house 8 am sharp mind you your commute could take you up to 2 hours depending on your home address and you don't get paid for drive time to customers home!
TAKE HOME VEHICLE, THEY GIVE YOU TOOLS!
NO STAND BY TIME PAY NO LUNCH NOT ENOUGH WORK MUST WORK WEEKENDS!
Technician (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – December 24, 2016
This was a fun job that requires the ability to clearly think things through and have a great work ethic. I learned multiple things such as how to better communicate with customers, how to fully think through a problem, and it helped me overcome fears and build my character. Even though a majority of my work was completed on site by just myself, while at the shop other technicians would help me out by giving me advice and telling me stories of their different experiences. The hardest part of the job was overcoming my fear of heights, It didnt take long before it became the normal and It was something I did with no problems. Overall it was a fun job that helped make me a better person.
Work on your own time, meet new people, help those people, provide a great service to people.
