HP Windows 7 Migration Technician (Current Employee), Winston Salem, NC – May 19, 2014
I found the listing to this opportunity through Craigslist. I sent in my resume at the time and with persistent phone calls, there was work within a day. I enjoyed the technicians that worked with me. We all learned a great deal from one another.
Deployment Technician (Former Employee), Charlotte, NC – October 17, 2013
I felt welcomed by Peak Systems at least on a corporate level staff. Unfortunately, the same can not be said about project leads. There wasn't much of a team effort here. Leads often compared the work of others and encouraged rushing to complete a specific task. Occasionally, contractors would be singled out when the lead decided to offer overtime or – more... even when deciding to let people (or force people to) leave early. The leads were often times condescending and were very reluctant to assist. The feeling was that, we were hired for the position, we shouldn't need help.
To add to the bad experience, the instructions weren't in chronological order. You would have to read ahead to figure out the steps were in the wrong order.
Knowledge doesn't make a good leader - people skills and leadership skills do. – less
