Production was great, workers didn't want to work.
Class C Lineman (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – May 23, 2016
Foremans didn't want to work nor put out the work. Most employees were counting down the hours to leave, as I was counting down the hours til the next job. When I first started, it was great. I didn't know anything about services and splices, but I learned. Then it was smooth sailing after that. Until they kept bouncing me from crew to crew. I was on a crew where the C was 54 years old so he didn't care about anything. My foreman at the time was also 54 years old who had retired and was only at this job for the insurance. I stopped learning...no body wanted to teach me new things cause everyone was at the point in their career to take it easy and just show up for the day. That's why today I'm on here to further my career and keep learning. A few wise linemen told me once, "If someone tells you that they know everything about linework and stops learning? Stay away from them..." Well I most certainly do not believe I know everything. But at the time I did believe that I had stopped learning...
Everything. Don't care about employees, cheap per diem, They take your per diem without telling you. Low salary.
