You get a yearly review, generally on your anniversary date. It's either on your hire date, or if you get a different position, it will be the date you started said position. It's usually a 3% raise, but it goes up to 4%, which is rare...

Great benefits. Started with 3 weeks vacation, 6 sick days. Rental will work more holidays than service, but if you worked the holiday you pretty much got paid double time and a half, or overtime with the option to use a floating holiday in the same week. Offered a great 401k where they match 100% for up to 4% and then 50% up to the max match of 6%. Also some districts offer what they call a cash balance program, where they put a percentage of what you make in a account and you don't put anything. After 5 years, you're fully vested, which means when you leave you can either roll it over to an IRA or any other retirement program, or you can cash out and you'll get a check. Also after 5 years you get a extra week of vacation....4 weeks of vacation after 5 years is pretty good considering most companies give you 1-2 weeks if your lucky, after a year. When you start you immediately start accruing vacation days, generally a day and a half a month. With the right Management/district staff, you'll get cookouts, or pizza parties pretty regularly. They will send you to all types of training if your interested, pay you for mileage and hotels as well as getting paid for the training. The list goes on and on. If you can deal with truck drivers, that "know everything" about how to fix their truck, it is a amazing company to work for. And this is coming from someone who was fired.

They would like all the techs and csrs to have them, even just a Class B to be able to road test. Tech 3 it's not required. Tech 2, Tech 1, Lead Techs, and management need a Class A. Pretty much, you're more of an asset to them if you have them.

Why is it "Not right" if they don't call you, to tell you they're not interested after just filling out an application?? I can understand if you had an interview, for them to call and say they went with someone else. I'm sure they get hundreds of applications in each district, so to call every applicant that's not a fit is ridiculous.
