Great Place to Start in substation work
Substation Technician (Current Employee) –  La Grange, NCJanuary 1, 2018
Some Great Crew leaders some not so much but overall not a bad place to start in substation. Lots of traveling involved that was not clear upon hire or was not told of where to go next til the last minute.

Long hours, constand need for increased productivity for the same pay.
Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Kingsport, TNDecember 26, 2017
This is a decent place for a young person to begin a working career. A lot of responsibility is placed on the individual technician, as they are always working alone, and responsible for everything. I learned a great deal about working with hand tools, using ladders safely and effectively, operating a work vehicle safely, new technology, and how to efficiently complete tasks. The workplace culture was average, and somewhat competitive and could be cut throat a times. The hardest part of the job was the excessive work hours required to make a good income, and the most enjoyable part of the job was working with the customers, some of my co-workers and the potential for a really good income.
Pros
Could work as much as you wanted to, and make as much income also.
Cons
Very hard work, long hours, working alone all the time.

This is not a company that you should work for. The expectations are unrealistic, Back charges and nickel and diming is the norm, Combative warehouse management.

Think twice!!!
Home Security Technician (Current Employee) –  Greensboro, NCDecember 21, 2017
Paid by piece rate, relaxed job but be prepared to work every Saturday. Very stressful and lack of direction. Typical job day might be 2 hrs or sometimes 8hrs, Your hours varies dependent on jobs. Sometimes you might work other days you may not. 40 hrs is never guaranteed!
Pros
work truck, benefits, gas card
Cons
Less hours, Stressfull, No direction from management

Horrible
Technician (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VADecember 18, 2017
Horrible management, bunch of lazy people who don’t do anything but breathe. Training was fine because I worked under a mentor. You go through a “dispatch” to get your work but the moment you hit the field, managers don’t answer the phone and “dispatch” doesn’t respond so who knows when you’ll get a job, or one that pays enough to make it worth it. They give you an email, then they send you 1 important email in a 1000 junk emails, and expect you to see it within 24hrs. If you don’t respond within their unspoken timeframe, they’ll fire you or threaten it yet they can’t pick up the phone to answer you or even call you instead of email (it’s 2017 and directtv, come on). The WORST experience with a company ever, loved the job but MasTec is like the army. Offer you great benefits and make it sound amazing, then you start and it’s a bunch of BS.
Pros
Work vehicle, gas card, ok pay, good mentor
Cons
Bad managers, horrible hours, you never see the same people cause everyone gets fired or quits, no communication

Your work output determines your pay
Satellite Installation Technician (Current Employee) –  Forest Park, GADecember 18, 2017
Great for the self starter. Ideal for someone who prefers little to no constant supervision. Of the varied supervisory styles can impact your understanding of the process but overall almost non-invasive.

fun work but company has zero family values
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Kingsport, TNDecember 18, 2017
company does not care about employess personal life. the work is fun and exciting and would be fantastic if not for traveling assignments that takes you away from the family for 15/16 days at a time. also would be nice to have days off back to back rather then split.

Tough
Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Newburgh, NYDecember 12, 2017
I don't not recommend this job to anyone unless your willing to work outside in all types of weather conditions with limited resources. This requires you to use a lot of thinking and patience.

Good work, horrid management
Satellite Technician (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLDecember 8, 2017
I love the work. Management is sorry, broken promises, they keep you out late, disregard any thing other than your life. AT&T is involved that's one reason.
Pros
Good steady work, Good pay, Take home vehicle and phone.
Cons
Sorry management, broken words, lies, interfaces we use are garbage also.

Great company to work for
Projects and Billing Manger (Current Employee) –  Jackson, MSDecember 6, 2017
Mastec is a good company to work for. A well balanced work/life structure in which family time is recognized as integral part of employee's morale building. Cross training across platforms could be improved.
Pros
Benefits, life balance great, decent vacation time
Cons
communication could be better, lateral opportunities, cross training limited

Sr. Detail Engineer, Field Engineer (Current Employee) –  Rapid City, SDDecember 5, 2017
I would still be working at Mastec except for the fact that they decided not to remain an AT&T turf vendor. I was able to work from home as a remote detail engineer, and for the most part enjoyed my years at this company.
Pros
work from home, flexible hours
Cons
