Technical Trainer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Technical Trainer?

Technical Trainer in Atlanta:
"Great."
Pros: Weather
Cons: Traffic

Technical Trainer in San Francisco:
"Complexity of product."
Make sure you understand not only the core functions, but peripheral functions of the SaaS product.

Technical Trainer in Boston:
"Rivalry Between Two Training Managers Hurts Training."
Interview trainers already there, as well as others in groups with whom you'd be working.

Technical Trainer in Boulder:
"Technical Trainer at Call Center."
Pros: Get to work with new people on a regular basis. Work as a team with other trainers to create training material, or discuss best training tactics for specific new hires. Creating new training material that is more relevant and substantial than previous training. Learning how to use new programs like udutu and intradiem.
Cons: Having multiple managers from multiple companies. I've also had 7 different managers through CCI in the past 2 years. Lack of communication between contract company, contractor, and client. Inconsistent instruction/management. High turnover rate. When people quit or are fired, no one gets promoted, the employees left just get more and more work piled on them until they collapse and quit, then the workload gets shifted to another unsuspecting contractor.

Technical Trainer in Dallas:
"Bilingual Technical trainer."
Practice all the time know your stuff.
