Go to corporate Cox and get a job with them if you are thinking of doing cable. I liked doing cable, but the promises were of $1200 a week for an average tech. I was good at my job, but had to use my own truck for work and could hardly stay afloat with the terrible piece rate they pay. I generally worked 14+ hours per day and even when you called a customer at 9 at night and asked if they still wanted service they would say yes. I do not recommend the job at all for a contractor. Loved the guys I worked with, even like my bosses even though they weren’t helpful, but this is a terrible business model for the low end employees.
