Maybe the new qualification for working at AT&T is "can he fog a mirror?"

i know a guy that had like 145 hours for 2 weeks, was at a 99 for the month. He came in on a Friday when the load was heavy and did a 6 box Inid, when he closed it about 1pm his manager called and told him to come to the office. When he got there they asked for his id, keys, etc and fired him for numbers. He'd paid his dues and worked his ass off here for 3 years. Like you said all for nothing. This company made 13 billion dollars last year......They dont give a shit about you.....

you state you do 5 times more work than others who get paid more... i was a service tech,which is what your job is now under the prem tech title.dont be fooled by thinking you have worked any harder than any one else at at&t.lets compare i have been employed at at&t for 11 years,i have crawled more crawl spaces&attics than you have,and placed more drops&sni,than you,and for this why i get paid more than the prem tech offers.note i am no longer a service tech,promoted to maint splicing tech the pay is great.when you are able to transfer to a better position at at&t you will look back and say it wasnt easy.so with this in mind,there is no high paying job at at&t that is easy,the job gets harder as you go up

Impossible for a PT to transfer into anything except manager of other PTs.

You were stupid enough to settle for less, so shame on you.You are the week sister and no one gives a shit for you.Go find a job that you can actually do and leave grown men alone.

The premise tech is a INSIDE service tech that is responsiple for the install and wiring for the new uverse system and for dsl. PAY STARTS AT 8.00 PER HR AND TOPS OUT AFTER 5 YEARS AT 15.00...Its a ridiculous test
This is NOT just an inside job. The Premises Technician is responsible for service from the outside copper cross connect location all the way to the inside of the customer's home. This includes climbing poles when required. Working in all kinds of weather--rain, extreme cold or heat, etc. The pay starts at about $13.00 an hour and tops out at about $21.00. I have 30+ years with AT&T. This is a low paying version of the customer service technician position.

PT's in the SE are still non union...Union reps are saying it's going through next August when the new ST contract goes through. The job's not too bad as long as you don't mind odd hours and working under pressure. The pay is my only gripe!

Ok so here is my timeline thus far... Applied online Sept 23. Invited to take test Sept 26. I scheduled and took my test on Oct 5. Oct. 10 got a call about the RJP. I was not available to do these on the dates offered. They called me back a week later and I have RJP scheduled for Nov 1. Will repost as events happen.

I have been a prem. Tech for a about 2 yrs. Pay started at around $13. Now im at 19 dollars an hour. If you dont take pride in your work, dont even bother applying. You wont last long. Be ready to work hard, and for micromanaging overload. Good job overall.

You're a troll for AT&T. First line management doesn't make anywhere near three times craft and they work a LOT of overtime and aren't paid a dime for it. Get out of here, you jerk.
As a UFO supervisor, I agree whole completely. I actually took a pay CUT when I took this job, and the stress is destroying my health.
