Poor at helping you or letting you know how to fix an issue
Satellite TV Installation Technician (Former Employee), Mifflinburg, PAJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: company car, cheap tv
Cons: almost everything else exept the work enviorment at the local office was nice
Mastec as a company is very corporate in that your local supervisor have no say in what is going on. They will not show you what is wrong just a score card with some numbers on it and no way of proving the numbers accurate. Also benifits were bad before obama care came about so i expect it to get worse. And as a tech the house suck and they don't care – more... if your wife is in the hospital or your on your death bed you better get your work done or you will get a write up. – less

manager would make our life harder
Installer for DIRECTV/Sales representative (Former Employee), Miami, FLJanuary 18, 2014
Pros: was able to make my own windows of tim during workdays
Cons: stress leves put by managers
go to costumer house or locations, install their equipment, give costumer service, managers were unprofessional, co-workers were friendly, dealing with inclement weather was the harder par of it, seen the costumers satisfaction was the best part of it.

Dont work here
Dispatcher (Former Employee), Coppell, TXJanuary 18, 2014
Cons: very poor place to work
This is a place no one should work at. The pay for the job is not worth the pay. They make you work two jobs and only get paid for one. They do not care about you as a person or for your family all they are worried about is if you are sitting in the chair and answering the phone

Unorganised, and underpaid for the amount of work required
Lead Field Technician (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCDecember 29, 2013
Pros: company vehicle, fuel card, some tools ( basically just hand tools and ladders. no drills, bits, gps, digging tools, ect.)
Cons: expect to learn most things from you own experience on site, promotions based on automated points system
This company has a pass/fail attitude towards their employees. If you are looking to revolve your life around your job then this company is for you. Long strenuous hours with heavy travel times, and an unorganised inhouse call center who routs all contracted installations to you electronically on out dated equipment that works after beating and banging – more... through their home fabbed software that they provide no training for yet expect you to be productive and rate you as such.

All for Peace rate pay with high back charges upon customer satisfaction review. – less

loyalty,hard work, bad work ethic, management goes fishing
Roustabout (Former Employee), George West, TexasDecember 4, 2013
work all day, doing a little of everything: rigging, inventory material,
civil work, grinding, working on manlift, forklift

learn rigging, certified on manlift, forklift

managers are not fair, some people have been working for the company for more than 2 years but other people keep getting raises because they are related to someone. some workers have – more... been loyal and don't get a raise, yet other workers get hire on and move from timekeeper to project coordinator in 2 weeks with no experience.

working hard for a company that plays favoritism.

if somebody comes to investigate and talk to many workers Mastec will find out the truth.

this company is not fair to workers, women, pay equally.

some workers have more experience and still make $12, others no experience and get paid $14 or more.

supervisors go fishing and still get paid, other managers lose money for the company and they are still working.

why do the company hire more workers when I get sent home and I have been working for the company almost 2 years and told there is no work – less

DirecTV Technician (Current Employee), Summerville, SCNovember 26, 2013
Pros: independant
Cons: long days, outside enviroments, lack of training
This job is not too bad, as long as you are willing to work long unknown hours. My day typically was 8am-7pm (time i got to first job and time I got home). Even with long hours, the money I brought home was not enough, and it put a burden with online college.

Co-workers are good to work with, but management is terrible
Apprentice Line Erector (Former Employee), Fort Pierce, FLNovember 24, 2013
Pros: they pay you to go to the gym in a sense.
Cons: extremely low salary, yet was extremely long hours.
Run around with a chicken with your head cut off to meet deadlines. I learned always to take notes. Always looking over your shoulder to make sure things get done. Great guys to work with and after work they are good friends to hang out with. The whole day is hard reverts back to the concept of what a typical day really is. The most enjoyable part of – more... the day is being able to work in the fresh air. – less

Crooked unethical leadership
LTE Site Acquisition Project Manager for AT&T (Former Employee), Maitland/Lake Mary FLNovember 20, 2013
Pros: it's a job
Cons: too many to list
Anything you can imagine could go wrong with leadership in this company - has. After reviewing the company a couple of years into my employment, I was astonished how poorly nearly everyone has rated them and in many different offices. They sell you on everything from the position from the beginning to any raises or promotions just to keep you. It's – more... cheaper for them and only when you are fed up and give notice to quit do they try to keep you with a little pat on the back. They pay you very little as an hourly employee and require that you not exceed 40 hours per week. If your work demands increase, they will make you an exempt (salaried) employee and work you nights and weekends without additional compensation. They will take credit for your accomplishments, they adore themselves and walk around the offices as if they are God. They have all gotten their positions only because the person that used to have it quit, not because of their experience or qualifications. They are flamboyant and clicky - show favoritism, specifically to the young attractive women who ironically don't run into these issues and receive rapid promotions and pay increases. They eventually are on the outs though and experience the same mistreatment as all of the other men and women there. This situation is not an isolated incident. They will cuss at you, threaten your job, make commitments to the client for you that you cannot possibly meet and then yell at you and cuss at you more when you don't. – less
