Question about a Certain Job

I recently applied to ATT in what I thought was for a residential installation technician. I had to take a TKT-II test which I passed but apparently, the position that I applied for was the Systems technician installation and repair position. The job description doesn't sound like I would be doing residential work and I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge about the position.

Which state?

There all (5) union districts, a job title may represent different type of work in different union districts.

In Texas (D6) the position appears to be more business than residential working with phone systems while the same title in California (D9) is more microwave sites similar to Central Office which can involve remote travel / work.

Residential tech is more commonly known as premise tech (PT) or wire tech (WT) but may be listed as installer.

examples… TEXAS

CALIFORNIA…

The System Technician position is responsible for everything in the building and remote cabinet which includes Power, Transport, Outside grounds ensuring vegetation abatement and minor building repairs are completed at all sites. This position also assists field or Central Office work which includes completing service work orders as needed when local work groups are unable to do so. The furthest site from Palmdale can take approximately 3 hrs of travel time to arrive. This is barring road closures or extreme weather in the area. Some sites in this area require special snow equipment in the winter to access mountain top sites and Technicians to travel in pairs to meet safety requirements for remote site access. Technicians may be required to hike into sites not accessible by vehicle with their tools and materials needed to make repairs during a system malfunction.

I would not, in district 4….

you can search the web for ATT District 9 CWA contract.

Would expect a PDF file 400+ pages, lists all various job titles and pay ranges.

I would expect entry level to be around $18-$20 with raises every 6 months till reach max pay. Top tier techs at max pay would be around $45-$50 and may take 5 years, think trades (electrician as example) for apprenticeship to journeyman. 

California rates would likely be higher than the Midwest area I am in.
