Wireless Service Technicians

Work Environment

Cell site technicians who are in charge of several cell sites spend their workweek visiting the different sites. Depending on how far apart the sites are, this may mean driving a substantial distance. While the actual computer equipment is located inside a building at each cell site location, any work or routine checking of the radio tower requires outside work, in varying kinds of weather. Most technicians are assigned a home base—either an office or one of the cell sites—from which they travel out to maintain the other sites. However, their "offices" are really completely portable: from their cellular phones and laptop computers, they can do their work anywhere. They truly live in a wireless, mobile environment.
