Telecommunication Equipment Installer (Former Employee), Raleigh – December 22, 2014
Cons: where do i begin!
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 – more... 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. – less

Satellite Technician (Former Employee), Asheville NC – December 16, 2014
Cons: long hours, little pay, rude management, excessive chargebacks
This company is a joke. I have been in the industry for 10 years and never made as little money as I did with Mastec. They will find excuses to send you back on job without paying you, and when you refuse they threaten to fire you. One day I had two jobs (yeah I know should have stayed in bed) six hours apart from one another, and no pay was given for – more... the drive time. They also charge you to rent their van, while I understand this industry usually requires own vehicle if you have one they do not allow you to use it. Do yourself a favor and go work for Dish or local cable company. Do not do this to your family. You will not get paid for work you do accurately,and will put you in a financial burden. – less
Installation Technician (Former Employee), Dallas – December 11, 2014
Pros: never a one
Cons: too many to list
You started way too early and worked way too late for way too little. There was no incentive to advance. Training was almost non- existant. Site managers were football bone-heads. Vehicles were worn out. Getting product for your van was a political joke. Your spouse better have been making a ton of money because YOU WEREN'T !!!!!!!

Satellite Technician (Former Employee), San Antonio, TX – November 9, 2014
Pros: free tv
This is by far the worst and most stressful job I ever had. The training you get sucks, and when you get stuck at a customers house and ask for help nobody is there for you. You get paid by the job which means if it's slow you might make 20-50. Dollars a day. You won't have a social life if you do this job because it doesn't matter how late you're on – more... the field they still send you jobs till they done, some days i stayed working till midnight. – less

IT Security Analyst (Current Employee), Coral Gables, FL – October 29, 2014
Pros: great company, great people.
Cons: location is in a very heavy traffic area.
I enjoy the culture and the people I work with. I have to drive 50 miles each way to work here. The traffic is so bad that even if I move closer and pay more to live closer it will not affect the drive time. The surface streets are worse than the expressways. This location is right in the middle of very heavy traffic areas.

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 – more... 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 – less
