you're expected leave home at 6am and work solid till its dark, no help and nobody cares for your welfare. It was all about keeping Virgin media happy and nothing else

Met some great people at map. Great to work for. Working away can be tough sometimes but you have to just get on with it. You also get an allowance every week to live on tax free.

Have to be in with management to make money. Route will more than likely be 100+ mile travel. You have to pay if anything is accidentally damaged, managers think they’re the bees knees and they will not let you Cancel a job unless they have tried to clear ducting themselves
Pros
Can earn money if route is ok
Cons
More than likely have the worst routes imaginable when you start

Horrendous. Don't even know how they can get away with salary structure. Paid per job completed and unrealistic workloads to complete. Sub standard tools/uniform/ppe provided. Forced by localised management to breach highway regs. HR offer no support. Would not recommend MAP to my worst enemy.
Pros
Even the discount is not worth the hassle
Cons
The job

If you want to work for an employer that does not care about its staff then apply to work for map. They run the bussiness on a shoe string. Constantly working over 45 hours a week with no overtime paid. Always put in akward positions, doing jobs you havent been trained enough to do. They failed to provide me with the essensial tools for over a year. Lies and false promises awate.
Pros
humor
Cons
extortion

Long hours make promises that are rarely or never kept. 15 hour days are very regular. New contracts for new engineers are the worst I’ve ever seen. Work load is far to high and greed of the company pushes and pushes to get this completed no matter what the issues are. Only interest is to there profits and not there workforce.
Pros
Area managers are supporting and do there best at all times to help
Cons
Very long hours on less than minimum wage

not a bad company to work for, but the hours are really long and because its not a salary or hourly wage then sometime you end up working for less than minimum wage. work loads are ridiculous and the company does not care for the staff. but the local management will do all they can to care for you. i am a fast tech/engineer for the company and i only just see the benefits of the job but then the company come to us wanting more all the time, nothing is ever good enough.
Pros
very cheap virgin media services
Cons
long hours, stressful job, can never satisfy the company

MAP looked after me and offered many career progressions over the years. I would still be there now if they hadn't lost the Virgin Media Business Contract. Very Good Company. If you work hard, you will be looked after.
Pros
Progression
Cons
None
