Its going into peoples houses. Don't be shy. Some days were longer, some where shorter. Also, don't be afraid of heights, or crawlspaces.

Great for Single Income, Poor Choice for a Family Income
Field Technician (Former Employee), AuburnApril 26, 2014
Pros: company truck, cell phone, benefits
Cons: pay for your own gas, long hours.
Typical day included going in at 6:30 AM to basically sit around and wait for routes to show up between 7-730 am.(Since you're paid Piece work you're essentially losing money here since you aren't installing) After checking out equipment and getting out of the warehouse, a typical day is pretty decent, but there are days where you could wait 2+ hours – more... for a job waiting for a customer to get home and they never do, so it cancels and you get paid NOTHING other than a measly $1.75 in gas. Expect long hours most days. my average day ran from 10-16 hours depending on workload. As a single guy the income isn't bad, but if you are a family trying live on it as a single income, GOOD LUCK. Since I started and left, there have been FOUR cuts in our contract with the cable provider we work for.I went from making roughly 16-20/hr(After a month or two of getting my rhythm for the work) when I started there, down to roughly 11-13/hr by the time I left. Soon enough I'm sure people will be making the same wage as a fry cook with 10 times the hours. Expect Mandatory 6 day work weeks with some mandatory 7 day weeks as well. If you get sick, good luck actually getting them to be reasonable, they will threaten with write-ups if you don't come in. Oh one last thing, some customers are absolutely great and will give you respect for being a service person. Then there are those customer who just treat you like dirt and will blame YOU(the tech) for the cable company's problems and errors and billing and basically take it all out on you making you wonder why you bother to help people.

TL:DR
Personally the people I worked with was great and so where most of the managers that I worked under (There's always going to be people you don't get along with), put the pay just wasn't enough to justify the work we did anymore. – less

Friendly enviroment with hardworking people to make customers happy.
Assistant Administrative Payroll Specialist (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCAugust 30, 2012
Pros: i enjoyed all the potlucks we had for holidays.
Cons: i wasnt that thrilled with the healthcare costs... but made it work to the best of my ability.
I enjoyed going to work at least 20 minutes earlier to get my morning coffee and get situated at my desk.. Ive learned that if you work hard along with your team mates that we all can surpass our potential.As a manager i know that holding team meeting and voicing ones opinion can be very helpful in opening new doors and ideas to better the company.. – more... My coworkers were awesome.My coworkers understood that there is life outside of the work force and enviroment.The hardest part of my job was working weekends and juggling outside activites with my kids . The most enjoyable part of my job was making customers happy. – less
