Pros: company truck, decent pay check
Cons: poor communications, little to no leadership, poor job notification, boring work
I was hired on with Emerson - ERS as a field engineer.
During the hiring process, there was discussion of engineering topics and activities that may occur in the future if I accepted the job.
The field engineer position included a company truck, some equipment, credit card, and gas card.
There was no local office, the day would start at the job site.
The – more... work teams fostered a caustic attitude toward team communications. The one month of employment included zero team meetings, zero information development from management and the daily work was somewhat of a mystery.
Management was notified that drawings and scope were not issued, there was no response. Management was questioned as to why a field engineer was doing field tech work, there was no response.
Management was questioned about the topics discussed over the hiring process, there was no response.
I put in 24 hour notice and left.
If you desire technical work, and don't mind poor attitudes and poor communication, but simple "although possibly hazardous" work, this is the job for you.
Otherwise, I would and did look elsewhere. – less
