    I've seen their guys out in the field using a Rycom which is usually regarded as one of the worst locating sets around. The screen literally looks and sounds like a nintendo gameboy from the 1990's.

    They are also restricted to 40 hour work weeks. No overtime paid at all. The hourly wages are also pretty low.

    From what I've heard people talking about I would steer clear of them entirely.

    I am with them and have no problems at all. I have used about every piece of equip you can name from a 810 to a Vivax. The equipment we are using does a pretty good job for what we are locating. Pay is what you make it and no I am not low paid. I drive a brand new ford fully loaded and I am left alone to do my job. I have worked overtime. The ones who complain are the ones not willing to get out and do their job. I do have gps on my car but could care less due to the fact that I go in and do my job and go and leave my area like I am suppose to. I have over 17 years locate experience so I am not a rookie or a&& kisser speaking. I have worked for 4 other compaines and this is not difference. Every company has its bad and good. No difference here.

    retired - I'm guessing you're doing one of the electric contracts they have and not cable TV only. Are you in Georgia or abouts?


    LadyLeatherneck - Be sure to come back here and share your experiences with them. Which state are you working for them in?

    JALC = just another locating company

    Just like many other companies I have worked for. Working for them now. Will continue to work for them as long as I can. Can't complain. 40 hour weeks, but that was also throughout the winter. On-call gets OT (This is new). Wages are industry standard. Production requirements are high, but should be for CATV.
    Good luck to you Lady
