They'll send you where you need to go, weather you have what you need or not. They always seemed to be surprised by the schedule of work and when a tech needed to be on site.
Support from management
Depending on the manager, it was pretty good.
Depends who you were assigned,to work witj
Freedom to work independently
Prepare to be called every 45 minutes with an estimated finish time.
Perhaps the worst part. No one seemed to be available with an answer in a timely manner.
I have know idea. I worked independently.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The one that were there for a while were advanced pretty quickly.
If you're a field tech? You're a field.
Overall compensation for your work
Pay is so, so. You got a company vehicle and card. You were allowed to keep hotel rewards points. You will earn plenty of those.
Office / Work Environment
You have a company vehicle. You have a corner office.
They sure used boxes over and over.
If you can handle a lot of time on the road or out in the field. Have at it. I like to travel, so that part wasn't bad.
Its a small company, that works in the background.
The work is there if you want it.
I have no experience with this.
Video after video.
The work is challenging. Working with an older point of sales system, is very challenging. Prepare to educated yourself in the field or on the job. They didn't say, "no" to any request by the customer.
Suggestions for improvement
- I know its hard. But, better communications between departments and scheduling. The usual stuff techs complain about.
What I like about the company
Its a field tech job. Anyone who is one, knows what they're getting into. Don't expect it to be any different then any other job that requires you to; be on call, run cables, setup video, POS, or audio equipment.
What I dislike about the company
What I didn't like, was the last minute planning. Not having the equipment or supplies for the job. If you're going to use 9 connectors, you will get 9 connectors. Don't make a mistake. They won't send enough bulk items. Be prepared to have your own tools. What they send has been well uses.
