Enjoyable place to work with travel.
FDS (Current Employee) – USA – August 8, 2017
I collect data in the field. This involves moving around properties looking for anything the customer specifically wants on their property map. A lot of what we do is dependent on whether a cell tower is close by, or if the signal is clear. Otherwise, it is easier to just do on paper.
The management and even owners are easy enough to talk with, I have never had an issue getting days off if I request them, or even switching to different locations if there is a reason things are slowing down.
They will work you till you drop if you dont say anything though, but that also means you can make a decent amount of money. Problem is you are not home though, so that is somewhat of a balancing act.
The other downside is per diem, it maybe covers a meal..or a sandwich and a half after taxes.
The job itself is nice, you wake up when you want to, go to work, take a nap if you want, go back to work...as long as you get in 8 hours, it doesn't matter how you do it..work nights if it is more convenient on a property. You get to see a decent chunk of the country at times. So it is worth it.
can work any time I want, as long as I get 8 hours in, it doesnt matter how I do it or break it up. Pay is decent, and they will put you in decent hotels.
Per diem is horrible, never really home, a lot of miles on personal vehicles.
