Good job, not a good career
Former FLM (first line maintenance) tech for about 7 years. The job itself is unlike many others as you are in your vehicle most of the day awaiting workorders or onsite at various locations fixing machines. You have complete freedom when you aren't busy which is a very appealing part of the job. The pay is insulting, however. It's a fine job, but a terrible career choice.
Sense of freedom, fellow employees
Pay, benefits, company morale
