"Everyday can be different."
Field Service Technician:
This is not a cubicle job; you will have to interact with people in person & around the world. Even though you are trained to fix equipment, your people skills have to be at the top of their game. You must be a self-starter and be able to manage your obligations with minimal guidance from management. Most managers in this business cannot do your job; they mostly are their to make sure the metrics are in-line. You must be self-reliant but as a member of the team you will be called on to assist in areas where you have more experience or more recent training. Field Service Engineer is one of the best jobs you could ever have.
