Installation Technician in Peterborough, ON
Decent pay if you work hard, but overall a bad place to consider workIf you want to make 60k in a year with ok benefits and a cell phone paid for you it's a fine job. But you will work every holiday in the calendar year, and have to deal with petty and immature management on a daily basis. Summers you can expect to work hard for 10-12 hours a day, sometimes 6 days a week. In the winter you will be lucky to work 3 days a week.
Worst owner, management, supervisorOne of,if not the worst company I have worked for. The back stabbing from the supervisors to dispatch dta at this company.
I had a customer rebook a install due to the length it would have taken to complete. So we agreed that call would be done the following day at an agreed upon earlier time. i phoned in to rebook ,,I was confronted by dispatch with attitude and claims that the talked with h customer and was told they wanted it done today. so I returned to site n hen I want to to the door that customer asked what I was doing back.i explained that my boss told me you need it in today .the customer was mad he actually asked me to phone them and talked to them in font of me.. needless to say because the customer wanted to rbook this was my fault
Just one instance of vupoint not being professional in there dealing with there employees or customers
Former installer in Barrie, ON
Terrible OwnershipI worked for VuPoint when they had the Bell contract in Barrie a few years back. The owners are terrible people. They treat the installers like garbage. They force you to wear their clothing on your dollar and when they got freebie bell winter jackets for the staff we were offered them at a cost. BEWARE
