Dispatcher (Former Employee), Coppell, TX – July 15, 2014
My typical work day here was just simply dispatching out work to the technicians. Management sucked but co-workers were ok. Hardest part of the job were the constant procedure changes. In the short time was there the total operation of my department changed at least 4 times.
Satellite Technician (Current Employee), Virginia Beach – July 6, 2014
Work day starts at 8 AM. No telling when you will get off. Could have anywhere from 2 jobs to 6 depending on the workload. I have learned the concepts of Satellite technology and advanced troubleshooting skills.The turnover rate is extremely high though. Technicians come and go, mostly because the pay starting out isn't all that great but the money – more... comes with time. The hardest part of the job is crazy driving that you could be doing. The most enjoyable part is being able to see the satisfaction in a customer. – less
They micro manage you to death, send you an hour one way to jobs make you pay for everything you need to do the job, and you have to have a truck or van you don't mind working out of. I had a very bad experience working with them. They tired to charge me over a thousand dollars for supplies I turned back in then dropped it after I told them to take – more... me to court for it but of course they took my last two weeks of pay. I would live on the street before I worked with this company again. – less

Lead Tech (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – June 17, 2014
Mastec is a good company to work for if you want to be happier somewhere else. Everyone that has worked here truly disliked their job. Once they moved on to another company they were happier than they have ever been before.
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee), Pelham, AL – June 11, 2014
Managed the procurement of all material coming in and going out. Trips to the AT&T XDOCK to pick up new material to be brought back to our warehouse for storage and job placement. The hardest part of the job was the constant change of strategies from Field Supervisors and Managers
Satellite Technician (Current Employee), Big Spring, TX – May 29, 2014
Pros: it's a job
Cons: overworked, not hourly pay, paid per job completed. low wages
I've been working for MasTec for 6 months now. The pay is not that great and you're gone most of the day. I usually get off work around 10 or 11pm and do not get home until midnight because I have to drive to another city to work because there is little work in my town.
Management isn't that great, I had to transfer to another office in another city – more... to get decent management interaction. before that, my supervisor was 4 hours away, the only time I heard from him was to tell me how many appointments I had that day, or to submit my timesheet.
Hardest part of the job is climbing a ladder and climbing through attics. thats about it.
the most enjoyable part of the job is working out of my work truck and meeting different people every day. – less
Fun and productive working with great kitchen in breakroom
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Coppell, TX – May 18, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks when high call volume in effect
Mastec is a great company they exceed the expectations and go beyond to keep the company on top. The hardest part of the job is call overflow when your put in all queues to keep the call volume under control pther than that it's easy as ever..
Top Hand / Close Out Specialist / DAS Tech (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – May 12, 2014
Pros: drive time you get paid fully.
Cons: per deim not that much i rather get paid cash instead of gettin a clc card, but hey its not that bad.
Any day at work theres always a new environment and a new thing you have to apply with what you already know thats what i love about telecom work and working at a work site because every site is different in its own way. The climb, the hardware set up etc. All you have is you and your co-workers to get the job done the right professional way. Thats – more... it. The hardest part of the job i would say is dealing with the bridge because sometimes they will have you at a site for 5 extra hours for no reason waiting to log you out and they wont let you leave. – less

Installation Technician (Current Employee), Richmond, VA – May 7, 2014
The typical day would just be driving around from home to home just installing satellite tv. The best part of the job is actually the different people. you never know who you'll meet. there are some interesting people out there. the worst part of the job would have to be management. the company is just a bit unorganized.
