Do you want to know why some of the good Techs will not stay with Time Warner? Its because of the pay! They have made it to where you would only bring in 250 300 weekly and having to go down to London and work 10 hrs days and only bring home 150.00 That's why some of Techs left. They had to dock more pay out due to gas prices rising and after you look into whats going on its not worth the time you have to put in.

I knew something was up because I had a good friend that went to work there back in Aug. and he did not stay long! He liked the people but the pay was a little low to have to be out all day!

Does anyone know what they start you out at far as pay wise?. Thats with no experience. I know most places paid a Piece rate, but seen they offer a hour rate. SO just curious on what the hour rate is.

maybe if you had a job where skill, talent, knowledge, information, education, or something a trained monkey could do, was a factor... then maybe, just maybe the pay would be better. you know, one that requires at least a high school education. a job wear you showing off your plumbers crack wasn't a requirement. a job where pants were required, or even jeans for that matter.

start with 1 month training with 8.50/hr. After that that piece work rate only. avg makes about 10/15 hr. But make sure if that's what you want to do!

I wasted 3 years at PBI, what joke outfit, needless to say I moved on to greener pastures. Still in the cable business, just employed by people that offer 2 weeks vacation, 7 paid personal days, 5 paid sick days in your first year, hard to beat.... And oh yeah, I get paid overtime at 1.5 times regular pay

Time Warner continues to be the absolute worst cable company I've ever has the displeasure of being forced to deal with.

The actual Techs that are forced to show up and verify that yes, the problem is not at my house, are the only ones that actually have a clue about what's going on.

I would rather you start a Cable Company that offers reliable service at reasonable prices.

Baby steps I guess.

1 month training is not enough. They send you guys out blind if that's all you get.

Actually 1 month training is not correct. Don't know where you received your information but 4 weeks is based on the techs. Experienced techs maybe 2 to 3 weeks. I have seen techs take up to 6-8 weeks. There is no base line or standard due to every tech is different. But as far as the 10-15 an hour. Well that depends on the tech. Our average tech now with the new pay rate will put in about 55-60 hours a week. The good tech will bring in about 13 to 1400 a week.

PBI seems very promising. I like the fact that you are paid based I your work. I work hard everywhere I go. I just got the job at PBI and I'm excited.
