My worst experience as an employee in my career. This the current management and culture breeds a poisonous atmosphere. Plainview site manager has a chip on his shoulder and is constantly under audit by AT&T. This presents real pressure which trickles down to low level employees.
Was forced to take jobs under unsanitary conditions. Not paid unless job was closed, even if circumstances were beyond techs control, (no line of site, customer cancels, equipment for work order not provided, incorrect work order etc.) No pay for travel time. Weekly mandatory morning meetings at 6am in Plainview, (I had to leave my house before 5am.)
Service calls pay 25.00 (gross) regardless of distance traveled. No choice of jobs. Must work in heavy down pours. Because pay is piece rate Mgr nit picks jobs for excuse not to pay workers. I worked full time and netted a little over 10k for 2007.
*COMPANY OUTSOURCES TO TRAVEL TECHS from upstate NY to South Carolina so they can pay less and treat employees poorly, then tells full time techs "there's not enough work."
Extremely high turnover rate among all employees. I worked there 10 months and everyone I trained with quit within the first week of being in the field. Trainers all quit within time I was there. Supervisor was let go Dec first. I was then let go a week before Christmas. :-)
If I can help one person this is worth posting. Do not work here. Ask anyone who's been there after training. MasTec sucks!
Going to different homes on a daily basis meeting new people and fixing the equipment or installing new products for them and educating them about the services and how the products work is fun it was like going on an adventure every day never stuck in other low income environment
As long as the technicians are highly skilled, they will succeed.
At first it’s a great opportunity to get your start up but once you’re in it becomes very stressful and no life work balance at all sometimes you can’t even deny it work you have to do the work in order to go home.
No they do not care about their employees. They work off a point system and will give you points for stroking out at work. This place is horrible.
The environment is horrible. They tell you not to talk, not to stand at your desk, and not to leave your desk. They correct you on everything they have a problem with but never answer their emails when you have a question or need help.
