Field Service Technician Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Field Service Technician?

September 2015
"Commtech."
Field Service Technician:
Pros: I like having the ability to to resolve a problem completely. 95 percent of the time there is no need for anyone else to help me. Occasionally you need help with network issues.
Cons: Local management seems to have no idea what goes in to a day at work. It's sad because many of the managers were techs once. Now they try and act like a they've joined a club you are not allowed to be part of.

"Qualify as quick as you can."
Field Service Technician:
Don't wast your time. Become qualified as quick as possible and get as much experience as you can. Companies don't care for you so if you don't look after yourself they will keep using you until the day you leave.

"Personal Branding."
Field Service Technician:
Do your work well enough that you stand out. Get the customer to remember you by name and start asking for you specifically by name. Don't be a generic, interchangeable technician. I don't want to be a commodity of the company. I want to be TNT (Top Notch Technician). That's when my career really took off, when I figured that out.
