Not a good place to work
Field Mechanic (Former Employee) – Salinas, Watsonville, San Carlos, Pittsburgh, – August 2, 2019
I hired in as a field mechanic in march 5th, put me to work on the 6th. no training, threw me to the wolves. but I survived, and learned the equipment and how to diagnose and repair them. I was praised for my work. ! was 1 of 4 mechanics when I hired on. 3 weeks later, I was 1 of 2 mechanics, trying hard to do the work of 4 mechanics. I had 3 yards with trucks, trailer, and various equipment to maintain, and service if broken down on a job. I had a lot of windshield time, and was stretched very thin. On 7/08/2019, I was fired! I was told I took things apart and did not put them back together. The upper management are far from that, not good managers at all! otherwise, If I would have been pulled in and counciled on my job performance, and I could have explained how I was running my tail off trying to keep up. I never took anything apart that I didn't finish. sometimes parts availabilty was an issue, so those units would not be re-assembled on as timely a manner as I would like, but that was out of my control. this company is going down the tubes, as far as I am concerned. I you want to be treated like a number, with no respect, and extremely expendable, go ahead and hire on, because the field mechanics are just as I just described.
