This is an awesome company. They give you everything you need to succeed. They have a great support network for employees and always worked around me being a family man. I would work for them again!

A fair wage for honest work
Turbine Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 27, 2019
The position of turbine mechanic/technician is 100% travel. It starts with a resource manager calling and asking if you want to go on a job. The details are then given and travel arrangements made. You have the option for the company to cover your flight and rental car (which you may have to share with another employee), or you can drive your personal vehicle and be paid travel pay, which is significant. Motel rooms must be paid by you, though a healthy per diem more than covers that expense.

The work days are typically 12hr days, starting at 7am or 7pm depending on shift. Work is usually 7 days per week until the specific job is complete. Anywhere from 2 days to 3 months, depending on the scope of work. There is quite a bit of flexibility. You don't have to accept every job, which is helps the work/life balance.

The number one priority in this workplace, is safety. The management was the best that I had experienced thus far.

Working away from home was the hardest part of the job. Traveling all over the globe and working with world-class individuals was by far the most enjoyable part.

Growing Company with Great Benefits
Gas Turbine Technical Advisor (Current Employee) –  VariousJuly 9, 2019
Working for this company will help you get your foot in the door if you are interested in the Power Generation maintenance. The company provides a base salary , full benefits, bonuses and incentives, company phones, cars, computers, and corporate cards for travel and associated material and tooling requirements.

The downfall to this company is that you will not receive any overtime until you exceed a set number of billable hours.

When you are assigned to projects they usually happen at the last minute and travel becomes excessive. Then there are times that you are not working and get to be at home and complete training , etc.

I do not recommend this job to anyone who can not handle constructive criticism, heavy tavel , extended absences from home , long hours at the job site, and a fast paced work environment.

The training that is offered for OJT is very in depth and the mentors are usually seasoned professionals that will work with you on a daily basis.

The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the Union Millwrights and other professionals, and customers, and racking up the reward points from hotels, car rentals, and milage from traveling.

Productive and fun place to work with few tat.
SSP - Site Safety Professional (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 2, 2019
Good company to work for, to many good policies but not followed the exactly way its written, in my case management was faulty, workplace culture is good, the hardest part of the job is to know when can you impose your power, and when you have play politically, and a lot of management preference for specific ones, that is bad.
The most enjoyable part of the job, is communicating and safety training the mechanics and helpers. the majority are good people.
Pros
Free Lunch every now and then
Cons
Short brakes, no pay overtime rates

Commissioning Technician (Current Employee) –  TravleJune 12, 2019
Typically work 6 days on 1 day off at leas 10 hours a day. Room to grow and plenty of training opportunities. Little to no work for 2 months or so every year and no PTO. All in all a good place to stay for as long as you are willing to be on the road.

Fast Paced mechanical workplace, with a focus on safety
Turbine Mechanic Assistant (Current Employee) –  TravelMay 29, 2019
A typical day of work is 12 hours with an hour of breaks.
It is mostly mechanical work, with plenty of part cleaning.

Pays less than competing competitors hourly, however, puts you to work more often
Pros
Free lunch once a week or so, summer usually off
Cons
away from home, pays less hourly than competitors, no income in summer

Sadly can’t give zero stars for management
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Glasgow, GlasgowApril 26, 2019
Company is just ridiculous. Army of managers who do nothing apart from sit on calls and ignore those they feel are below them.

HR Management in the UK are a joke.

Stay away unless you want no thanks for a job where you get nothing in return. Sad company thanks to GE.
Pros
Leaving
Cons
Management, culture, attitude, people don’t even come in for their work and no one cares

A positive workplace that demands your abilities
Wind Turbine Commissioner (Current Employee) –  IowaApril 23, 2019
Working with FieldCore is really what you make of it. My job involves me constantly traveling and planning off the edge of my seat. If you can't handle it, then you may not enjoy it. The pay is decent, and the healthcare is really great. If you don't mind the travel (and the heights), I would recommend this company.
Pros
Decent pay, all equipment is issued
Cons
constant travel

Could be a good career if
Commissioning Wind Technician (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLApril 10, 2019
company as a whole is a good company. There is a sever lack of communication through management. The travel benefits are good, wages are decent when they work you. The workplace can be negative depending on the crew you are working with. Getting started on a project is very difficult and they lay you off quite a bit. There is no guarantee of work which makes it hard to plan financially.
The hardest part of the job is the physicality of the job. You must be able to climb multiple times a day. The most enjoyable part of this job is the traveling and meeting new people.
Pros
Fun to travel to new places and good wages
Cons
there is a lack of communication and no guarantee of work

Mechanical Engineering Technician (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLMarch 26, 2019
When taking on a job like this one must understand what the job is all about. As a field service technician, you are on the road 100% of the time. So work life/balance is virtually none existent. Occasionally you get put on nice projects where you can have a little bit of a normal life and routine. I've learned that this type of work situation does not work for most people. Relationships with loved ones tends to suffer unless they understand the life of your job/career.

As far as managers apply, we have some good ones and some bad ones. My region has had good managers overall as they are skilled in the field and have worked in the field. They understand how the life is. Some other regions have managers who need to be improved on.

Workplace culture is good in my opinion. Finally we've gotten to a point where we get uniforms on a regular basis once a year. Once you start to work with the same people and same locations, work life balance becomes a bit easier as things are more familiar and common.

The hardest part of the job is dealing with things outside of the job while working. You will learn to put someone in charge at your house to take care of your house while your gone, or handle all that weight when you return for a day or two of home life. Occasionally you will have a few weeks to maybe a month at home where you start to realize your running out of savings and wonder where the industry is going. Then it's back to work for a few weeks at a time back to back.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the traveling. If you like to experience some traveling
  more... and going interesting places, this is a great job/career. Some locations aren't really a vacation location however if you learn to look for interesting things, you will enjoy the traveling much better. We are able to obtain the travel perks like the airline miles, the rental car points, the hotel points, and so fourth. The best part of traveling and collecting perks is that when you decide to take a vacation, you basically travel for free.

I felt the benefits package was good.

Overall I feel the company is a good company to work for if you know what your getting involved in from the start. Plenty of work to be done if you want to work a lot. Plenty to learn about the industry and what the work includes.

For the first several years, we had a great team and culture. After new senior leadership came in, the entire culture changed. It became less balanced and unhealthy.
