Pros: providing damage prevention service to private and public sectors, everyday you're in a different location, forever seeing different places and sights of the city, i love map reading
Cons: snakes in rural areas in the field, the weather both hot and cold, the only con i had in the office was the traffic to and from work.
I really enjoyed working for Utiliquest. As a Utility locator, you work alone, start your route off at home and return home at the end of your route. Driving the company pickup to and from home, only met with supervisors in the field for resupply and administrative matters. I also met monthly at a predetermined location in the field or office for safety – more... classes or equipment updates. Promoted to the office as a Field Checker / Dispatcher, where I checked and approved the field locator work of fellow employees and redirected their route to other jobs mainly emergencies. There wasn't anything complicated about the work at Utiliquest, I enjoyed the field work and the office was a very relaxed atmosphere as well. No pressure whatsoever and the weekly meetings were very informative and brief. – less
