never again
Premise Technician (Former Employee), Waco, TXAugust 14, 2013
Pros: lots of unsupervised work
Cons: paid by the job.
typical day started out driving to the shop to stock up my van. I would drive all over town to do installs for customers at their home. Hardest part of the job was if the management gave all the good jobs to their buddies and left you with small installs or repairs. Since you get paid by the job, you want the big installs.
