Technician (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 30, 2017
If you are the type of person that likes to be ran over and told what to do without any say then this job is for you but if you like to set goals for yourself and try to become more and achieve a lot then I would recommend searching somewhere else because this job will bring you nothing but stress and drama. If you travel with this job then you are gone majority of the time and they do not care if you have family at home or not they will tell you you're traveling for 2 weeks which in reality two weeks turn into a month or more. I was one of their best workers until the manager showed me his true colors

Stay far away from this company. - 6 day mandatory work weeks. - you get paid per piece installlrd which equates to minimum wage. -get sent out of town for minimum 2 weeks with no per diem - terrible health benefits , Obamacare was better.

If you like getting sent out of town and making little to no money this is the job for you! But in all seriousness the hours you are forced to work and the pay doesn’t equal out at all this job will make you lose any relationship/ social life you have. At times you can make good money but the company will take it from you THEY TAKE MONEY OUT YOUR CHECK FOR EVERYTHING. Seriously don’t do it just apply to comcast you will regreat working here! P.S whatever they tell you you’re gonna make in training is a lie it’s $8.00😞

No work to life balance, expected to answer company work phone after clocking out for the day. Management was terrible and I was blamed for issues that occurred on day off. Plus poor training didn't help when trying to learn job.

Can make decent money if you are willing to sacrifice any and all social life. The job works you upwards of 70 hours per week, training pays you $8 an hour for the first few weeks, you have to pay for your own gas, but you are reimbursed.
Some great people to work with, but others..........

hostile work place, they do not follow through on training, there are some people in the company that won't turn on you, but there are others that are out for you, they try to cut to many corners to make money

work 12 hour days 6 or 7 days a week you spend your own money for gas and get reimbursed pay for your own tools and truck rental pay is based on levels and pay is by piece work and over time is calculated based on that
Overall, it has been a great experience, I was able to utilize my skills in different settings. I worked in both Philadelphia and New Jersey which allowed me to work in many different settings and work from different angles.
Cable technician (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 23, 2015
Great opportunity to work in the cable field and learn how to install cables and learn telecommunications. Company tries to treat everyone fairly. I have had positive and some negative experiences but mostly fair. Pay is good if you are a hard worker but if your lazy then no money to be made. Pay is based on work production but the benefits are great and they are starting a 401K. There are times I work long hours but management tries to do their best to work with me to spend time with family. They offer vacation and sick time along with dental and health. I would recommend this company to hard working people looking to be introduced to the cable world.
Benefits, vacation, competative pay, work enviroment
buy your own tools, pay for gas but you get reimbursed. long hours at times
Technician (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – June 22, 2013
Early start, finished late, typical day was installing and repairing cable, internet and phones. Learned how to do all three, management was okay a few good supervisors, others not so much, co-workers were good. Hardest part of the job was when you couldn't figure out what was wrong with either cable, internet or phone. Most enjoyable part was being able to drive from each job always busy.
