Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – January 22, 2018
Velociti is a good place to work do not expect anything but to go out and work everyday. There is little to none supervision raises are good just need better benefits. I enjoyed working with the company I would have never left the company, The problem for me is that if you need to take off a day you do not get paid for it.
Contracted Wi-Fi Network Analyst (Former Employee) – Riverside, MO – January 17, 2018
The project I was contracted to work on was not clearly defined and there was no training mechanism. I attempted to instruct other contractors or offer my knowledge, but this was not appreciated or considered. Seems like a nice place to work under certain circumstances or criteria that I did not meet. Several regular employees expressed their discomfort and desire to leave.
Very nice facility

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Riverside, MO – March 8, 2017
A typical day at Velociti was being managed by someone who had no business being a manager. I learned how to treat somebody if I dont agree with their work style and how to be ignored. Management was a family thing. The only way you got promoted is if you knew somebody.
Senior LAN WAN Communications Technician (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 8, 2016
Company was good to work for until contract expired. 100% Travel no problem. Designed and installed wifi systems. Great team Despite having graduate degree was not considered for management advancement.
Amazing company that takes care of its employees first
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO and Orlando, FL – March 2, 2016
I have been employed with Velociti Inc. for over four years, and 75% of that employment was spent in a mobile capacity. I have four children, and if ANYTHING happen that required my presence at home, it was never questioned by the company. The leadership understands the nature of our industry, and they ensure that the employees have everything that they need to be safe, efficient, and productive.
Amazing culture, work place flexibility, Success is based on productivity
Mobile Technician (Former Employee) – Riverside, MO – November 16, 2015
A solid company to work for and they give you a lot of support in the field. They trust you to get the job done and they don't micro manage you. The down side to this is that you don't get to see your upper levels managers much and one don't really get to know the guys in the office well.
You get the opportunity to travel nationwide and sometime beyond. The work environment varies depending on the customers location which means you may work inside a warehouse or outside in a quarry.
Travel, company vehicle, credit card, computer, phone.
Quality Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – January 28, 2015
The thing I wish to highlight is their willingness to ensure that I have access to my family from anywhere in the country. If I needed to go home for any form of emergency, there was never any questions. They made sure I was there when I needed to be.
Extremely talented colleagues; bad Work/Life Balance
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Riverside, MO – March 19, 2014
I started Velociti as a traveling wireless technician. The position requires 90+% travel. I held that position for 7 years before switching into the role of a systems engineer. The reason for the switch was to travel less and have a more well rounded work/life balance. Management promised me this position as a "work from home" position, where I would be remotely supporting techs in the field, creating installation documentation, creating training materials, and training new hires. Since becoming a systems engineer, I have been traveling about the same amount as I was when I was a technician. Mostly to install and manage pilot projects for new business. The work is very enjoyable, but the travel is starting to wear on me, which is why I am in search of a similar position with a different company that can provide me with less travel. Although Velociti is a company that requires extreme amounts of travel to be successful, I enjoy my time with the company. My colleagues are extremely talented and the projects that I am involved in keep me interested and motivated. If they can figure out a better way to manage the schedules of technicians to provide them with more time at home, then Velociti would be a great fit.
Wireless Technician (Former Employee) – TX – March 1, 2014
I was a resource for wireless cutovers throughout Texas. I have a also done a Houston wireless cable install. I worked a NikeTown project setting up the screens for the Trial Zone in Las Vegas and Manhattan.
100% Travel position, 6 day work week, great position for a single hard working individual.
Network Administrator, RF Engineer (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – March 30, 2012
Technology deployment throughout the enterprise while traveling 100%. I loved the work I was performing throughout my tenure at Velociti, however the hours and travel were quite demanding.
I came into Velociti with little wireless experience and left an experienced wireless engineer. I had exposure to both Motorola/Symbol (WiNG) and Cisco (IOS). Both centrally controlled, and autonomous platforms deployed in every environment imaginable.
great per diem, travel the world
no time for personal life, away from home for months at a time, compensation.
