Lead Supervisor | Houston, TX | Mar 24, 2021
They will work you like a rented mule, then threaten to fire you for using pto
A good place to work while you find a better job. Bonus: they will put you on 24 hour on call and leave you there for months if no one else volunteers to take your place.
ProsIf you're injured they'll give you time of before the fire you.
ConsNepitism, little to no chalice for advancement, terrible pay, shady admin

It’s a good job but the amount of stress is high. It all depends who is your supervisor. 60 hours is the least amount you should work in week during dig season, but 60+ Hours is suggested to maintain a great work ethic.

Dont do it
If you want to sweat alot and walk all day and then being yelled at for not being where the contractors are on time, then go for it. but prepare for all the hard work to be washed away by the first rain and having to go back out the there and re-do everything again and chasing your own tail./

I enjoy working for USIC. I tried taking a different direction a few years ago away from Property Management and would like to get back into the Property Management Field. The advancement here is very limited and no room for personal growth without relocating.

Typically overworks technicians
Promotes quality, but actually demands production at the expense of quality. High turnover rate due to overloading work. Low compensation for the job responsibility.

No career advancement
USIC is a very Demanding, Stressful & Fast paced work environment, Which takes over a large portion of your life. However there are a few Pro's to working @ Usic locating service. Some of those Pro's consist of working outside, Plus the Freedom & Flexibility of working alone. When weighting out the Pro's and Con's to working for Usic the Con's strongly out weight the couple of Pro's.
ProsWorking by yourself
ConsManagement does not appreciate there employee's

I was young and they paid weekly!
Weekly pay for a teenager = a beautiful thing. It was definitely an eye opening experience for me. I knew what transpired in front of as well as behind the curtain.
ConsDrunk, stoned managers
Lead Trainer | Davenport, IA | Jan 2, 2019
work 40 hr a week . Lots of OT . Driver score card is a joke. you break to hard, swerve/ turn to hard, accelerate to hard, lose traction i.e spin tires in snow, anti-lock breaking engages like in snow. it counts against you and you can be fired for it. but if any of those happen you can send a email to the guy in your state whom oversees it to get it taken off your score but you must do it each time?
Conswork vehicles are slow junk 2wd trucks
Accounts Receivable Clerk | Indianapolis, IN | Aug 7, 2018
I don't want to write a review
They pay well there is a lot of perks. Management is so/so depends what area you work in. Corporate does a lot for their employees. The locators get the short end of the stick.
Prosgood salary and family oriented
Consno chance of advancement
