    Pros

    Good starting pay. Cool co workers.

    Cons

    Some days you get called off by management and if your out of paid day off you lose out on a good chunk of money

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many people. Just because you think it's gonna be busy doesn't mean it is. If an employee gets called off by management because there is not enough work that employee should get paid regardless.

    Pros

    was able to get off on short notice.

    Ask for way to much from workers, would not be fair to employees, trainers were friendly and understanding and would help you on anything even after training

    most opportunities were nothing but supervisor

    Pros

    Awesome work schedule and self paced work load.

    Cons

    Upper level management has no clue about the daily work the technicians perform and continually institute unreasonable metrics and sales goals.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to the input from lower level managers and employees. They are out doing the work daily and can provide valuable insight to make the company a success

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility and pleasant work environment. The company normally gives opportunities for overtime and is tries to be accommodating creating a good balance between work and personal life.

    Cons

    Not that much career advancement. Any job becomes draining if we don't see a quite bright light at the end of the tunnel.

    Advice to Management

    Create more events/situations that would encourage career advancement within the company.
