Fair pay, some bad management
Test / Driver Coordinator (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 25, 2016
A typical day would consist of organizing drivers in different test patterns to stress test the new tolling system throughout the State of Florida. I learned how to analyze industry specific software and report the data to the developers.
Management was not very organized and many days I would get a call in the middle of the work day and be called out of town at the last minute for testing that night. In other words, go home, pack a suitcase, pick up rental vehicle, and drive to designated testing and commissioning area. Check into hotel, pick up and prepare rental cars for testing purposes, try to get test drivers last minute, hold safety meetings, do time sheets and the list goes on. All by myself.
Co-workers seemed to be in clicks among themselves and there was a lot of jealousy if someone was smarter and quicker at learning new things. It seems to be a mans world.
The hardest thing about he job was working two or three 20+ hour shifts back to back with little sleep which i have done many times...but don't oversleep once, or they will excuse you from all of your duties without you even realizing what was going on.
The most enjoyable part of the job was traveling and working with diverse groups of people.
Management is not organized
