FIELD SERVICE TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – 18 September 2017
Field Nation is a great place to work temporarily or if you are retired. I do not suggest this as a full-time occupation as the work can be sporadic and sometimes low paying especially if travel distance is a concern.
Great if you're a jack of all trades, who likes changes of pace.
Field Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – 11 September 2017
I worked for this company for a year and a half, and have done many different jobs. During this period of time I learned so many different skills, I eventually was able to tackle most jobs the company put out. I would continue to work for this company, had my partner not moved to California.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Hudson, WI – 10 September 2017
I was an accounting clerk intern while I was attending school. I worked directly under a CFO who had a lot of great advice with many years experience. I was grateful for what I learned, in the end I realized that this wasn't the career choice for me.

Opportunity to excel in different levels and fast pace, like different work location. Also my resume gets updated almost in every job situation. I want to focus on Telecom and networking switches and routers.

Freelancer (Current Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – 3 September 2017
Its pretty good pay but competitive and some of the people they assign to oversee the projects can be annoying. You should watch your payments closely because the work assigned often goes through many channels and the payments could get a little mixed up.
Contractor- North East Arkansas area (Former Employee) – North East Arkansas – 25 May 2017
Contracts can be high and lucrative for longer jobs. The shorter jobs are paid as a job done in whole. Some jobs are paid hourly, but the hours aren't long. This is a great opportunity for a side job if taken serious. I used it to gain experience in the information technology field.
Field Engineer (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – 18 May 2017
Main thing is there is no job security as I must bid on the jobs and usually do not get them. As long as you have excellent ratings from the customers and Field Nation itself, you can get at least 1 out of 3 bids. I had a very good experience mixing home and work since I choose which jobs to take. They take a fee from your pay for getting the job for you and another fee if you don't have insurance.
Good mix with home life and work life.
They tale a fee for getting the work and if you don't have insurance.
Ability to schedule work as it applies to my abilities

Desktop Support Technician (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – 1 May 2017
I've been working with field nation for years and I have gained alot of experience working with different companies and I have established some good connections with individuals. Some job descriptions aren't clearly spelled out at times and some deployments are poorly planned, but a technician with true skills and experience can usually make good out of a bad situation.
Diverse work atmosphere, Learn on the fly
Paying for your own materials, gettting reimbursed for tolls and other expenses.
Low Voltage Technician (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – 11 April 2017
As Low-voltage electricians I'm responsible for installing, maintaining, and repairing wiring, equipment, and fixtures. May also be responsible for instructing more-junior staff members on these tasks. As an electricians I must be up to date on building codes, able to read blueprints correctly, and - if necessary - prepare a sketch of the project. Additionally, low-voltage electricians need to communicate regularly with colleagues and clients, meaning excellent communication skills are necessary; they should not only be able to effectively diagnose problems that arise in electrical systems, but communicate with clients on those problems as well. Knowledge of the tools required in day-to-day work is necessary. My most enjoyable part of my day, is completing my task.
IT Freelancer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 10 April 2017
Field Nation is an amazing tool for freelance technicians of various fields. They are very good at streamlining the process of finding work as an IT freelancer. Work orders are very diverse, and they usually have plenty available for technicians.
Their mobile app could use a little work, as I've had problems with it sending me to the wrong location before, and there's no way to change profile settings from it, but other than that they fulfill their promises as a service to the letter, and therefore deserve full stars.
Multi-Functional IT Specialist (Current Employee) – Four Corners Regional Area – 16 January 2017
Very desirable position, I am able to select from a wide range of contracts in my area which allows me to be my own boss. The only down fall is the contracts do have peak seasons and low volume seasons.
