IT support technicians may be responsible for diagnosing problems in computer hardware and may be called upon to troubleshoot problems for users, and may work in a help desk or on-call position.

These employees generally are not required to work in close quarters with other employees though they do spend the majority of their time in a cubicle or office setting.
