Very poor mangment
Cable Technician (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 30, 2018
Very poor management they feed you BS at there orientation then lie about pay and make you work 12 hr shifts but won't pay you for it
If your doing a good job they won't congrat you but if you miss one thing your the worst tech or your job is put on the line no advancement opportunities managers are very disrespectful

They will hire you then make you take a new hire out with you to a job no supervision even if you don't fully understand it to mess up

This is just overall the worst
Pros
You get to keep your tools after being over charged for them
Cons
Avoid this contractor Complete waste of time and money

Lost interest quick
Technician (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VANovember 30, 2017
If you are the type of person that likes to be ran over and told what to do without any say then this job is for you but if you like to set goals for yourself and try to become more and achieve a lot then I would recommend searching somewhere else because this job will bring you nothing but stress and drama. If you travel with this job then you are gone majority of the time and they do not care if you have family at home or not they will tell you you're traveling for 2 weeks which in reality two weeks turn into a month or more. I was one of their best workers until the manager showed me his true colors

Dont do it!!
Cable Technician (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VANovember 29, 2017
If you like getting sent out of town and making little to no money this is the job for you! But in all seriousness the hours you are forced to work and the pay doesn’t equal out at all this job will make you lose any relationship/ social life you have. At times you can make good money but the company will take it from you THEY TAKE MONEY OUT YOUR CHECK FOR EVERYTHING. Seriously don’t do it just apply to comcast you will regreat working here! P.S whatever they tell you you’re gonna make in training is a lie it’s $8.00😞
Pros
Can’t think of any
Cons
The WHOLE JOB is a freaking con

Be wary
N/A (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaAugust 27, 2017
No work to life balance, expected to answer company work phone after clocking out for the day. Management was terrible and I was blamed for issues that occurred on day off. Plus poor training didn't help when trying to learn job.

Decent Job, I guess?
Cable Installation Technician (Former Employee) –  Fredericksburg, VAJuly 19, 2017
Can make decent money if you are willing to sacrifice any and all social life. The job works you upwards of 70 hours per week, training pays you $8 an hour for the first few weeks, you have to pay for your own gas, but you are reimbursed.

Great Company to work for
Cable technician (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 23, 2015
Great opportunity to work in the cable field and learn how to install cables and learn telecommunications. Company tries to treat everyone fairly. I have had positive and some negative experiences but mostly fair. Pay is good if you are a hard worker but if your lazy then no money to be made. Pay is based on work production but the benefits are great and they are starting a 401K. There are times I work long hours but management tries to do their best to work with me to spend time with family. They offer vacation and sick time along with dental and health. I would recommend this company to hard working people looking to be introduced to the cable world.
Pros
Benefits, vacation, competative pay, work enviroment
Cons
buy your own tools, pay for gas but you get reimbursed. long hours at times

OKay
Technician (Former Employee) –  Woburn, MAJune 22, 2013
Early start, finished late, typical day was installing and repairing cable, internet and phones. Learned how to do all three, management was okay a few good supervisors, others not so much, co-workers were good. Hardest part of the job was when you couldn't figure out what was wrong with either cable, internet or phone. Most enjoyable part was being able to drive from each job always busy.
