Left this company knowing that it was in the dump.. after two years starting in 2018 I thought it was going to be great.. benefits “free cable” health insurance the whole 9. Didn’t get a raise the first year.. and the second year I only got 1% .30 cents.. both my supervisors were great “Gary and jp” the other one not so much didn’t really know him so I can’t really talk bad about him. Other than that the company’s work load s—ed and leaving in august was the best decision I ever made for myself. Not only am I happier but I’m making more $$ working at Uber and day trading.. lmao good luck to those who feel “stuck” at this job. Price of advice find a new job because this company is just going to make things worse for all those employees involved.. it’s nice to be free

Good luck Penny flipper.. Seems like you are making fun of us but it's OK. . Let me tell you something, you still not making enough money yet as a day trader because you also have Uber as another job to complete the money for your rent. (Don't t understand what you mean " being stuck and being free''..) Let me suggest you something, stop being a penny flipper and be long term investor trust me you'll make more Money and pay less taxes in a year. Look at me I'm a tech for many years, also as a long investor I make more money than my yearly salary with altice.. Again I will still keep my job, the only thing, I don't do OT anymore 🤣🤣.
Know how i know youre full of it?
1% of 30$ is .30....Sooo youre lieing about youre raise,or you cant do basic math
Or BOTH.Two whole years in the industry and youre crying about what exactly?...Obviously you didnt graduate high school,im sure you gave it "youre all" though.Good luck with youre stories in future endeavors.
If u left the company, leave this site....
MJ why so angry?
Hey MJ, here’s your answer. In 25 years I’ve never been cold, hot, wet, or snowed upon! And outages always can be fixed by sitting in the truck “Hiding”! LMFAO
@4dpk+17XfjraO sounds like you want a plant job. You don't make yourself look any better by putting another man down. In fact often times when you talk bad about someone it does the opposite. Just a piece of advice for you.
@3gxi+17XfjraO I care a lot less than you think. Was just tired of your whining. I'm good if I lose my job tomorrow, I'll just get another one. It's just a paycheck. You were the one complaining.
Nobody gives a F* how long you’ve been here or if you’re a good tech or a bad tech. At the end of the day every1 is here for a paycheck. Whether you get it just doing enough or you get it by being super tech as long as you’re happy. This company doesn’t give a flying F about you. Just make sure your check is right and you go home safe to your family at the end of the day F** everything else. We need unity not foolish jealousy and hate. God bless you all
I got a lot of hate posting what I posted. A lot Of guys making 35$+ but working like slaves and not being able to take time when they want.. I guess working in the rat race for 10+ years really made you guys believe this whole narrative that working for a corporation that sold out and taking it in the rear instead of finding something else because you’re to comfortable to make a change. I was based out of Long Island. I worked nights in the winter. The job s—ed.. only thing I knew for me was to get out. I’m good where I’m at now. Oh and the 401K plan is great BTW 10% a day growth daily 5 days a week. I’ll take that over 12% a year. To each their own though
Couldn’t agree more, your new union kept the old lazy plant guys and showed the guys who had a clue the door. But don’t think it’s all the company’s fault, look around at the slugs who you know voted yes, and thank them when you get told +9s on the high end off the tap is good enough! Mean while they hide in their trucks when it rains, or is too cold, or too hot! You’ve got to ask your selves, if a guy has been OSP for 25 years, is he a good tech, or not good enough to do something else? Just a question.
Hahahahaha... another dude that missed all that time with his family because he worked like a slave. Yo I hope you feel good about missing all those important moments because you wanted to be a superstar cable guy. You act like what we do is super important. It's not! We're not out there saving lives, so you need to stop acting like you're hot sh–. You're just another guy working a blue collar job and pretending you made some sort of difference in this world. If it helps you sleep at night, I'll pretend you're my hero cable guy and I'll call on you when I'm in desperate need of a laugh.
I'm a lifer and I guarantee I could work circles around you. I've worked holidays, weekends, nights and storms for probably more than half your lifetime. Come out and do some s— outs this winter and see how much sh$# you talk.
Yup not sure what shop your in but you can tell you haven’t been here long since your trying to put yourself up on some sort of pedestal and not worrying about the guy next to you . That’s what’s wrong with the younger generation. Bunch of s— ups with their heads up their own a$$’$ . What do a guy that put in his 20-30 years shouldn’t get his vacation over a guy that has 3 years . My man stay in the game another 20 years and you’ll get your days too. And listen cablevision was great compared to what we have now but they still played their games . If you were friends with the supv and were an ok tech and someone wasn’t friends with him but was an amazing tech , the ok friend got the better raise so where’s the fair in that . Nope sorry bro not seeing your side in this one been here 26 years and your wrong on this .
Now you have the lifers , analog men who cling onto their jobs , making way too much and haven't moved on. Thanks for the union keeps the senior amp it out men working to lazy to do the right thing , some still keep the Monday to Friday shift . Only the union can support the lazy and now let them have the pick of the time off . Which I don't remember being voted on. Cablevision had it right with performance based techs not seniority . Go sc-ape your center conductors , the union ruined this company keeping the people who will not adapt and move up or step up . That's why they voted them in retire already dead weight
I don’t know why anyone in their right mind would stick up for this joke of a company (ATS). You guys need to do what is best for you & your family. You are nothing but a number to Altice. They could care less about u, so why care about them. This is a crazy, crazy time we are all living in & you all need to do what’s best for y’all & your families. F**k Altice, take care of u.
Here we go the mo–ns will stick up for this company.....How could you???
First I would just like to say congratulations, & best of luck in ur new job’s. I worked for Cablevision for almost 13yrs & the only advice I can give everyone is to just send ur resume’s to other companies. Just like the other post said, DO NOT PUT ALTICE ON UR RESUME, PUT DOWN CABLEVISION INSTEAD. Trust me, it makes a big difference. On a personal note, I left making about $33hr to go work for Tesla doing solar work for about $25hr to start. Yes, I took a $8hr pay cut to work for a company that is one of the best to work for. I couldn’t take having panic attacks daily working at Cablevision, and basically never being able to see my kids cause I’m working crazy hours. Trust me, start sending ur resume’s to different companies. I strongly recommend sending them to Tesla, T-Mobile, Spectrum, & ADT (in house, not contractor). I wish y’all the best, good luck in ur futures.
You could be the best tech and you would still get a sh– raise.
C-appy tech for sure! Your raises show it!
Hows your 401k match day trading and at Uber?
