The only way to make money as a cable contractor is to be a terrible technician. It is not possible to properly serve a customer when all you can think about is how quickly you can leave so your hourly pay doesn't drop below minimum wage. I started here able to install Cable, Internet, Phone, and Home Security. Sadly, the only jobs that pay well are the home security ones. These jobs often take the longest (if you take the appropriate amount of time and educate your customers) and therefore end up paying just okay since you just spent 3 hours there.
Expect a camera in your company truck monitoring everything you do behind the wheel.
Expect a manager who is too stressed out about keeping the business afloat to assist you in career progression.
Expect long hours, and low pay.
Expect to be up at 6AM to look at your company provided phone (but not be allowed to clock in for it)
Expect to be treated like a thug off the street, since it's impossible to keep technicians for any length of time.
