Cable Installer Reviews

What is it like working as a Cable Installer at Comcast Cable, Inc.?

Cable Installer in Southfield:
"Great Place To Work But Very Demanding."
Pros: I like the freedom to not be 'tied' to a desk all day. The fact that I'm outdoors most of the time is refreshing a welcome turn from working in a factory without natural sun light.
Cons: The hardest part of my job is having to battle the elements. With the winter of 2013, which was one of the worst in my region, it was very difficult to preform my job and maintain a fast pace.
