Saftey is a very high priority
Damage Prevention Technician (Current Employee) – NJ – August 20, 2013
Free going atmosphere, a get up and self starter job. A very influential place of employment. My daily day would consist of: Routing tickets, pulling prints, concentrating on driving and safety, arriving early, assessing my work area and understanding what the ticket is calling for, consistently in touch with various contractors, locating the utilities and marking the underground utilities with water based paint and flags in every weather condition, taking pictures, E-Sketching, measuring for footage, billing the customer properly, and closing the ticket successfully. I've learned that this type of job can come with a lot of unpredictable changes such as Contractors digging to soon, Implement weather conditions, and uneven surfaces, other traffic, trouble locates patience is needed. The Management team at Utiliquest are very focused on its crews, it takes dedicated individuals to manage a team from afar. My co-workers here at Utiliquest are always willing to help so no one person ever feels alone while working in the field. The hardest part of my job would have to be not being able to see underground utilities trusting the equipment and my training keep me confident. The thing I enjoy most is this has become another tool in my wide range of experience to provide for my family.
From beginning to the end of the day you're constanly assesing situations
