Overall good experience working for Cantest as a meter calibration technician but improvements can be made. Up to date fleet trucks. Good earning potential ($50,000 - $80,000 yearly), monthly base salary + commission pay for completing sites and assigned work, year end safety bonus, work more/ make more kind of environment. The year end safety bonus is a good perk (typically between $2500-$5000) but could be deducted at managements discretion (the amount could vary from $5 to $5000 depending on how they feel). Winter months can be really slow. Pretty liniment vacation time. Not much growth potential and limited work experience. Good opportunity for entry level technicians, paid training, poor training program, your trained by an in field technician whose goal is to complete the work as fast as possible and go home as it's a commission based job with no reward to the person training the individual. Be prepared to spend time away from home staying in cheap motels and eating at fast food restaurants. If the equipment breaks down or doesn't work, be prepared to waste a couple hours without being paid. Not much growth potential and limited work experience. You are basically your own boss about 99% of the time. Co-workers and supervisors are a good bunch, pretty laid back and extremely helpful.
Pros
Good overall learning curve, paid training, Flexible work schedule, good earning potential, vacation time, independence
Cons
A lot of time away from home, not much growth opportunity, work more/ earn more kind of job, slow in winter, poor job training

Was tired of being threatened to be fired constantly and seeing how management treats their new technology side was brutal, they are all trying to get out. Pay was misleading, I'm maybe making 60 percent of what was advertised
Pros
Minimal involvement with the company president
Cons
Pay and benefits not as advertised, extremely low company morale
