Alta Horribile Company To Work For !! Concord, NH Central Office Tech
CO Tech (Former Employee) –  NH2November 8, 2014
he company hires replacement workers for the Fair-point Strike Union going on up here in the northeast NH, Maine and VT. First the GA. company recruiter does not tell you it is a scab job just tells you are going to be installing telecom networks, switches, etc... No mention of picket lines having damage done to your vehicle, they present an atmosphere of working in new const buildings not in Fair-points Buildings while a strike is going on..These people are professional scab working force who hire from all over the US and other countries to cross picket lines, Most do not speak English or even have a clue of what they are doing with tel co..The striking workers are right when they say replacements people have no clue and are substandard..honestly, they are terrible incompetent techs..Don't know the difference between the demark and a street light..The Alta supervisors are burnt out drunks who got kicked out of a telephone job years ago..All have baggage...When you leave on your own they refuse to just pay you what they owe you outright..You have to get the labor board involved to get your $$$ Stay away if you are smart allot of transients working for them..
Pros
its work
Cons
in business of strike replacement scabs

Alta owes me over $ 4,000
NOC Scab (Former Employee) –  Manchester, NHOctober 14, 2014
Waiting for a union walkout in Manchester, New Hampshire, Alta trained a replacement crew in anticipation, for over three months.

Then we realized that they had gone through over eight payroll accountants, and that unpaid wages and per diem became a nightmare.

Many attempts to contact anyone at Alta have been ignored, and the managers on site keep revolving; no one wants to take responsibility for their mess.

A very nasty attitude, and lots of unpaid wages!
Cons
unable to reach anyone about back pay.

Good Place To Work
Wireless Manager (Former Employee) –  AtlantaJuly 7, 2012
Work at 7 AM left at 4 PM and worked and traveled to develop business in communications. I used previous skills and people I knew do enhance their business. My direct manager there was as good as they get and helped with all he was capable of helping.

Pros
very solid financilly stable company
Cons
very rigid in way business to be developed no room for innovation

Critical systems involvement, needing quick response as needed.
Telco rep (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GAJune 13, 2012
Sorta like the "Maytag Repairman", monitor the systems waiting for some thing that needs attention to present itself. The best part of this job is working as a TEAM with the other Technicians to keep the customers happy.
Pros
great safety and training programs.
Cons
no complaints.

They do not like to pay
OPERATIONS MANAGER (Current Employee) –  New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and DelawareMarch 24, 2012
Good work, but the company is very cheap and they do not like to compensate for talent. Unfortunately it will be their undoing as more and more talent seeks work in other fields or with other companies.
Pros
great work experience
Cons
low pay

Mala y buena
ayudante gener (Former Employee) –  Ciudad de México, D. F.April 19, 2016
Ponlo en balansa ,esta empresa está de aquí para allá el administrativo como recursos humanos excelente pero asta ahí, los compañeros te enseñan te envuelven en un buen ambiente pero existen jefes que no te valoran, la presión es máxima una cosa es presion otra es que te quieran tratar como si fueras maquina, tu jornada laboral no acaba sino es de 1 o 2 horas despues diarias y no se te remunera por que no hay tiempo extra ni tiempo para pagarte, preferible trabajar de ayudante de albañil te valoran más.
Salario bueno te prometen subir en 3 meses pero no cumplen , vales sólo a las personas que ellos quieren ,seguro de vida si pero empresas menos pagadas lo dan .
Preguntate por que el de mucha gente que entra y sale máximo en 3 meses duran ellos mismos te obligan a salir
Pros
Sueldo 200 ariba pero lo desquitas
Cons
Te hacen el dia pesado y sin poder salir atu hora

Poca Estabilidad y falta de Objetivos claros por parte de la direccion.

Pros
Desarrollo

auxiliar de conteo (maquina de moneda) (Former Employee) –  Ciudad de México, DIFAugust 1, 2015
ALTA TELECOM, es una empresa dedicado a la telefonía publica, la labor desempeñada en la empresa fue conteo de moneda, es exigente en el sentido que trabajas con dinero y por lo tanto tienes que ser asertivo y trabajar con honestidad fuera de eso es un buen lugar para trabajar.

trabajo en campo con desayunos a $2.50
lider de brigada (Former Employee) –  Ciudad de México, DIFJune 2, 2014
te entregan tu ruta de trabajo vas al almacen por tu material y sales por gasolina y te vas a tu ruta.

manejo de personal, a electrificar, y a trabajar en equipo.
a la gerencia le falta coordinacion y vision

los compañeros amables con buen trato

cuando no te daban equipo apropiado de trabajo tenias que ingeniartela.

es que al principio teniamos premios como, puntualidad,despensas, un dia a la quincena para descansar pagado.
Pros
seguro médico.
Cons
no proporcionan el material adecuado.

En competencia con otras empresas del mismo rango es una empresa novata y decadente
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Ciudad de México, DIFMay 29, 2014
*Entrada a trabajar a las 6am, realizaba las bitacoras para las rutas, revisaba asistencia, pendientes, revisar que salieran las refracciones necesarias, sacar la operación (o todas las rutas) del center, ir a desayunar, salir a entregar llaves de prioridades y supervisar alguna de las rutas a cargo (en capo). Al regreso esperar también a que todos los operadores regresen de ruta, entregar recolecciones e insumos, verificar estado de las unidades, verificar entrega de herramienta, revisar pendientes concretados y dar de alta nuevos pendientes. Levantar observaciones y salir, en ocaciones 7 a 7:30pm del center.
*Afinar conocimientos con Excel, aprendí como funciona la telefonía publica, aprendí conocimientos básicos de electrónica.
*A la gerencia le faltaba empatía con su personal, aunque comprensible pues eran victimas también de la explotación de la empresa.
*Colegas: la mayoría inconformes al grado de no haber conocido a todos pues había mucha rotación de personal.
*La parte más difícil era aguantar la jornada de 12 a 13 hrs diarias por 6 días a la semana sin contar el tiempo del transporte.
*Oportunidades de crecimiento.
Pros
seguro medico, seguro de vida, prestaciones de ley.
Cons
contratos de 6 meses, sin horario fijo de salida, riesgo de traer valores, rutas en colonias peligrosas

es una empresa que tiene poco que inicio operaciones en Toluca y somos un grupo muy pequeño de compañeros (10) y nos llevamos bien
Aux. Administrativo (Current Employee) –  Toluca, MEXJune 19, 2013
Un dia tipico en el trabajo es llegar puntual a la hora de entrada y el saludo con los compañeros, yo en lo personal me preparo las rutas para que los compañeros salgan temprano a sus actividades, aprendi el funcioanamineto de estps aparato nuevos que estan entrando en el mercado que no habia en Toluca, lo mas dificil es tratar de tolerar a los usuarios que molestos insultan y llaman por telefono amenazando por las fallas de aparato, lo que mas me agrado y me sigue gustando es el conocer y saber manejar los aparatos y conocer todas las direcciones de Toluca.
Pros
seguro de gastos medicos mayores
Cons
los horarios, ya que hasta que terminen la ruta no se puede ir uno trabajando mas de 12 horas en ocasiones.
