Do NOT ever be a Comcast Tech.
Communication Technician (Volt alkalmazott) – Ranson, WV – 2019, január 31.
I had to resign myself to applying to Comcast because I was let go from an IT contract I had worked on for seven years. I applied, got called, was told one number as compensation and didn't get it in writing, so was forced to accept much lower. Comcast Tech training is absolutely glorious. I enjoyed learning something knew to throw in my IT bag of tricks and my peers in my "class" were awesome. Unfortunately, the training on how to hang drops and how to do fittings and connectors does not prepare one for going in to ungodly and terrible conditions people call their "homes." Mystery stains, surfaces that have not seen a cleaning in years, and crystallized cat urine are a few things you will encounter. Comcast also gives you a "time limit" and expects you to be able to complete insane work requests in forty-five minutes. Your usual day will be comprised of two appointments scheduled from 8-10, two 10-12, at least one 1-3, and at least one 3-5. You will not be given enough time to complete all of these, so you WILL be late to one and this will be held against you. Trying to advance to higher levels is near impossible with the metrics they want you to meet, you WILL start to get frustrated and eventually stop caring about trying to get to the next job.
