We are an appendage of the core contract. Sounds like we get screwed the same as everyone else. We don't get anything that st or opt has in the core. St are guaranteed no layoffs for 1 year then its opean season on the wire techs. So they can take our jobs and keep all their pay and benefits that come with core for 3yrs.

Is anyone in here familiar w/ the telecommunication technician field or know about a AT&T position called a "Premises Technician"? I JUST TOOK THIS HARD ASS TEST for this position and they would even disclose the salary. The test was like 30-40 outta 60(read the paragraph that explains a diagram, than answer 2-3) questions(relating to the type of work you would be doing if hired)in 60 min...WTF!!
I work for ATT. I am not a field tech, I am a MA I dont have to go outside just all behind computers my pay 26 dollars n hour. 1040 a week. is better if you get a inside job.

Opt can bump up to 12% core employees. Prem tech/wire tech will not be considered core. That covers the ST that have already bumped wire techs.

Another thing about that crap tech taking about ST prem Techs will be getting 34/hr, get your hands on our contract..we, the ones who been here a while are already topped out at $17.48/hr and we will not be getting the top 20/hr if I say IF (most unlikely) this contract flies. we will be getting a cheap bonus 1350 one time then a raise of .40 cents PER YEAR or 2.25% every 6 months until we reach that 20 dollars. So go check your facts again.It will be a really long time before we get to 20/hr with this new contract. Apparently these lies are getting to our own prem techs in SE. Those we have been here less than a year will actually get a pay cut because like I said the starting wages of Wire Tech is 8.75/hour.

You won't get a pay cut. You will retain your pay at wherever you are and possibly get a small raise if any, but not a reduction.

They didn't tell you your hourly rate? I just started in Fort Worth at top starting pay which is $16.71/hour here in Dallas/Fort Worth. The lowest I think they start new Prem Techs here right now is $13.58, I know this because a guy I was just in training with was making that rate.
On another note, here in the Dallas area they just started not allowing guys to work extra days, which is probably unheard of for the veteran PTs. Word has it that the area 4th line manager laid this law down because they've hired sooo many new guys in the last year out here. Even with that I just started out on my own dispatches and I'm working on average about 10.5 hours a day, which still makes for a pretty good check. Top pay out here is $20.65. Good luck with the job and your newborn dude, I got one coming soon as well.

I have a RJP scheduled this Wed., Aug 29th. Is there any ATLANTA, GA PTs on this post that can advise on this area. I live on the east side & would want a garage on that side of the city. Also, what's the status on home security. Thanks.

$9 an hour thats funny, I would rather live off the land in poverty than do this job at 9 an hour. Actually I think unemployment pays more or about the same.. thats $1.50 over minimum wage. Anyhew CWA fucked the premtech real good in this whole tentative agreement. They did no kind of bargaining for us whatsover and all their worried about is the core guys, trust me WE all know this CWA. I wouldnt expect many dues paying "WIRE TECHS" if this contract goes through. We outnumber ST's now so where's that gonna leave you???? EXACTLY !!!! Thanks for shit again CWA.

are you guys serious? 1. if u go to comcast you get paid 13.00 for like 5 years. every job u do with comcast is a repair. sometimes ur the 5th guy out there. customers give you so much shit u have no idea. 2. Directv sucks because their dishes are the size of a semitruck tire. try dealing with that all day. Raises suck too everything they install is subcontracted through DirectSat 3. Dish Network is by far the most racial motivated company ive seen. it sickens me even when i see a commercial. if your a minority the fartest you can move up is a supervisor, to manuver the cattle. they occasionaly have the token black guy but its rare. anything higher than that you better be white. you should see the dish network annual convention, its like a KKK meeting of nothing but GM's and IM's 4.AT&T is great compared to these companies. the union, well whats left of it, sucks big time. the union no longer can protect you in AT&T. and sure you have your old I&R piece of shit techs that always hate you doing their job. its understandable. i would be mad too. but you get a raise every 6 months, great vacation, nice hours, lots of overtime. you want to work well here it is. guess what, when they get rid of I&R in the next 2 years who are they going to ask for help? the premtech. i wish AT&T had a union. but we dont. the one we have right now is crumbling. the only thing they have done for us is "given weekends". and if you do work on weekends well "just JEP it"

Had my RJP this morning in Atlanta and already got an email from HR that I did not pass the Premises Technician Assessment. Are they only hiring experienced people from the cable and satellite companies? What the hell?
