Cable Installation Technician (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – July 6, 2018
If you like to work 70 hours a week and get paid for 25-30 this is the job for you. Yes you get a company cell phone a truck and a gas card but it’s still not enough for the average person to live on. You will be lucky to take home 85-300 a week after taxes and other deductions. Like I said 70 hours a week for that pay? False advertisement for the add you don’t bring home that kind of money until you have been here for 4 or more years and they can’t seem to get payroll correct ever, always a issue weekly and promised the next week and never see it. If you have a family you will never see them. You only have one day off. Your routing area is well over an hour away and you don’t get paid for that. Dispatch is a joke you spend more time waiting for work then you do actually working. Just be aware. All it is, is a money game to them. They hire anyone off the streets. I didn’t even make a grand a month so like I said the add is a lie.

Continually changing pay structure. You never know if what you're telling the customer is correct or not management Says tell them this. You constantly feel like you are lying to the customer. Why cannot management just give you a straight answer as far as this is what the customer can expect. Bully atmosphere
They lie to you and say you will make $600-$1000 a week "easily". The highest paid employee that worked there was making $500 a week working 12 plus hours everyday with no breaks. During training the company says they take breaks very seriously but as soon as you get to the field you won't get any. They over book you so you hardly have any time to do the work they expect. When there is a problem at the other end of things you have to call in and sometimes wait a few hours on hold at a job for something you didn't mess up. Since you had to wait so long on hold you had to have them take jobs off you which takes money from you for someone else's mess up. I worked 35 hours one week and made $129 total because of hold times. Would NOT recommend.

I am a current employee and I am very disappointed. Pay is up and down and very inconsistent with work. This job has potential just unorganized. I believe next week will be my final days. Good luck to everyone who applies cause you won't see your family.

Do not waste your time here. As a new hire you're required to do 6 weeks of training before you are on your own. I was given 1.5 weeks before I was sent on my own. When asking about returning to training my manager would respond with frustration, as if I was in the wrong. And ultimately, never answering my question. So, I left for another opportunity.
extremely long hours, no home time. okay pay.stressful work. many days you don't get lunch even with working more than 12 hour shifts. communication is pretty decent as long as you try. the supervisors try to act like they care but if they had more employees the wouldn't think twice about getting rid of you.
Installation Technician (Current Employee) – Amherst, NY – June 25, 2017
high turnover rate, worked there 2 years through 3 different project managers and about 5 supervisors. Made some money but also worked 60 to 70 hrs a week. Bare minimum overtime pay. Overrall, the company does not take the best care of you.
Company vehicle, company phone, Larger weekly paychecks at times, 36 to 46 thousand a year
short to no breaks, 6 days a week, inconsistent hours and pay
Lead Technician (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, MI – May 22, 2017
Continuously changing pay scale. Require you to show up on your days off just in case someone calls in. Vacation always denied until your vacation usage time runs out with no buyout. Management uses drivecam on mirrors to stalk you. Never enough equipment to fullfill installations. Wouldn't recommend this job to anyone!
Technician/installer (Former Employee) – Binghamton, NY – April 18, 2017
just crazy to think that someone will last long term working day and night 6 days a week.....when will ownership realize that a combination of part -timers and full timers would be better for everyone?
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – April 12, 2017
Work hours are VERY long. Have no time for family or hobbies. The pay can be very good if you can complete enough jobs for the week. Also, there is not enough training to make sure technicians are ready to go into the field
