    Cell company AC techs

    Anyone have experience working for the big Cell phone companies? I had a recent opportunity pop up. Lots of PTO, vacation and good benefits. But they are struggling to find people and half the department moved to other areas. Just curious if I'm missing and under lying sign. I currently don't get any time off and even when I do acquire it there isn't much.

    Most cell phone towers have a general maintenance person. When it is outside of their expertise they usually call a mechanical service company.

    It's for Verizon, it's classified as building services technician. But if u read the description it's all HVAC, I know some whose been there a while. The sub some of it. But, contractors charge an arm and a leg so they keep their own guys for a good majority.

    Is job security good? Do they give regular raises? The last company I was working for was a stress case from hell, almost made me give up on the industry. Just want feel for it. I know I can run circles around the current guys. Where I'm at now they don't want to use my abilities.
