An alright place to work
Heavy Equipment Operator /truck driver (Current Employee) –  Clearwater, MNOctober 10, 2016
An alright place to work if you don't mind being away from home. The hours are good and the pay is alright but no paid holidays and a lot of paperwork. They need to work on management to employee communication.

Dont pay people what they are worth and care more about sub contractors than own employees
Operator (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEApril 21, 2016
When they promise you what they will pay you, it never happens. They take money from you despite never signing a waiver you promised to sign expecting to be paid what you were told in agreement to sign. Sub contractors are top priority then the employees because Telcom gets a certain percentage regardless. Hard to move up especially into management's position, they'll hire outside help with none to little experience, rather then promoting within to people with experience. The worst mechanic you will ever find! Has no cdl and tries to tell you what a red flag is and how you won't be put out of service. They guy is so stupid, he literally duct taped battery terminals down and the tape caught fire. Has no equipment mechanic ability. Uses tranny oil to replace hydraulic oil in everything. Things equipment wise did get better when Dycom baught them out, but still won't buy 4 wheel drive or diesel trucks! Pay is some of the worst in this field of work, and tell people they are max at their pay skill all the time! Some of the supervisor don't know how to do their jobs and leave you to figure things out in the field yourself, and never have locates called in or refreshed. I can keep going and going, I recommend going to another compnay.
