Field Service Technician Advice

Field Service Technician in Bridgewater:
"Don't be surprised."
Unfortunately like with any company in this day and age, the keyword is profit. Most companies you work for are concerned with only one thing, how can they make more money, and what corners can they cut to do that. The employee ends up bearing the brunt of that decision. Don't be surprised if you are not rewarded for hard work, dedication, loyalty, and resilience. Don't expect to make a fair salary, or possibly negotiate a fair salary based on the work you do. Most companies go by your role, not by the work you put in, or they days you spend killing yourself to get the job done, not based on the cost of living in the area or city/state you work in, not by the basic logic needed when wondering how one can take care of a family based on the income you are offered, or the years of experience you bring to the table, or merit based. It is all about the role you play, end of story, and you cannot negotiate that.
