Good place to work but you will learn on the fly, in the field, sink or swim. Training is painfully non existent unless it's an online module. You are on your own which is nice but there is a lack of tools provided and you may be stuck at a site at 3am with no options and nobody picking up the phone to help you. Contracts come and go so set aside a little cash for the slow times. Vehicle is provided. Managers are over worked and are not always available when you need them. If you are an excellent troubleshooter, and can think like McGyver in the field then this job is for you. I enjoy a challenge and have no regrets working there. Another plus is that you are home dispatched and get a gas card, laptop, smart phone are provided. Benefits are good, and they match RRSP contributions.
