Pros: company vehicle, professional, and respectful atmosphere, travel.

I enjoyed going to work, I would arrive, arrange my work materials, plan my day, and go out into the field, dealing directly with customers, in updating the Natural Gas metering equipment at their home, or business. There is very little I did not learn about natural gas appliances, and metering systems. The management was very hands-off, and were more like partners with similar goals, when they were involved. I made many good friends among the people I worked with. I faced many personal challenges, and found a level of satisfaction in my daily accomplishments. The team I worked with, and companies we did work for treated us with great respect and dignity, and were very supportive of our efforts.
