Big company little employees
Level II every method (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT, Denver, CO – May 24, 2016
This company is world wide with offices in every state in the U.S. so every office won't be the same.
It's a billion dollar company, but every office only works out of its own budget, so some offices pay better or have better equipment than others. Some states have more work than others.
The office will watch their finances first. If you aren't working, they will send you out of state to work. However if it benefits them more and you less, they'll keep you home. So you may find yourself wishing you were on a job getting 84 hours a week, but because there is 30 hours a week at home, that's where they have you.
You have no choice about your schedule, if it's busy you may work 100 hours per week, and if it's slow you may work 16. You work when and where they tell you.
They do have online training, you can advance with this company much faster than with a small one and the top end has more options to advance to. However you will advance the direction that is best for your boss and not necessarily how you want. If they need a cwi, then you might get one, or an api, but if they need an RT tech more that may be where you head, or if try need phased array or eddy current, that may be where you head. You can hire on without a degree, but you'll advance, faster and make slightly more with one.
It's a good starting place to get experience, but beyond that I personally wouldn't recommend it.
