Energy and Utilities Robotics Field Technician (Current Employee), Bay Shore, NY – May 14, 2014
Pros: working with new technology
Cons: job sites are very far away.
The energy utilities industry is a very tough business, this is specially true for the contractors and other 3rd parties involved. On a typical day I would travel out to a job site usually 2-3 hours away from my home and company main building. When I arrived onsite it is my responsibility to coordinate all personnel working around the site for the day, – more... which includes: police, construction workers, safety specialist and other robotics crew. Because of the long distances involved in-between jobs, I have to operate very independent from my company, only reporting to the general field supervisor. After work for the day is complete, its my job to make sure everything is finished up right, type up and complete any other reports for the day, stay at a local hotel or start the long trip back home. So it's a job with long hard hours, but I've picked up a lot of responsibility, the ability to work very independently and manage a large group of people from different fields. – less
