I worked as a satellite tech at TIG for over three years. The job was highly independently, as you’d receive a week of in-class training, then a few weeks rolling out with another tech. After that, you’d sink or swim.
The job consisted of mounting and repointing satellite dishes, running coax lines around and through homes, troubleshooting failed installs and upgrading systems. I enjoyed the job, though the work could be bitterly cold in winter.
A normal day was getting to my first job around 8:00 after a 30 minute drive (this varies), finishing about four installs/repairs, before heading home. Drive time out of district was paid out, and you could take the company van home.
Work life balance is poor, and I wouldn’t recommend TIG to anyone with kids. You will be assigned two off days, and will automatically be assigned to work all holidays that don’t fall on those weekdays. On the plus side, they were very accommodating of time off requests.
Paycheques vary from busy to slow season.
I never had trouble with pay being held up, and the office staff were responsive.
