Pros: easy work, freedom to create your own schedule, company phone and laptop
Cons: low pay, long drives, i'm still upset about not getting any workloads when i put in my notice that i was quitting
I took this job as a "jobby job" when I left the military until I found a place that I could start a career. I needed money and they were FAST to hire (within a few hours). The job was very easy. I would drive out to my site (which could be 50mi away sometimes), find my parts and make the repair.
I learned a lot about laser printers, point of sales – more... terminals, and other retail based information technology.
Compucom provided me with all the tools that I needed for my jobs as well as a company smartphone (Galaxy S-4) and a laptop (IBM thinkpad).
I was quite upset when I did not receive any more workloads once I put in my notice that I was quitting. I wish I would have told them on my last day that I was quitting. So when you quit this place I recommend giving them notice the same day you quit!
In a nutshell, the field service job is low stress and easy. However, the pay isn't very good and you can find yourself driving quite a bit. – less
