Working day at AME typically consists of an unpredictable schedule. Depending on the circumstances you could work in the morning and also be asked to come in at night if short staffed. Most new employees are also asked to come in on the weekends.
Training is limited, lots of broken tools and equipment-especially related to asphalt core cutting. Injuries at work are common especially related to asphalt drilling. I had couple of close calls myself. This is because of poor training and lack of good equipment.
they cover 50% of your phone bill if you were not provided a company phone. however if you do not submit you phone bill by a set time, they do not give you your money. i didn't get paid for using my personal phone because i did not submit my bill on time. i was 2 months late. i was new and didn't know about this policy, which is stupid as they should of still re-reimbursed me. it is the principle that counts here, i use my phone to get to sites and should have been compensated regardless.
All in all, management expects you to be available on short notice. they make you drive to job sites out of town sometimes on short notice. Great job if you are single and willing to risk your health and do without sleep. Not a good job if you have family.
