Cable/sensor assignments will be provided daily or weekly by the project manager, as required.  Each day the installers will report progress to the project manager. The progress report will include completed assignments as well as any problems encountered that prevented a cable/sensor set from being installed.  The installers will label each sensor as directed by the project manager.

Good interpersonal skills and the ability to work as part of a team are required. Manual dexterity, physical stamina and strength are necessary as the job frequently requires lifting heavy equipment or tools and being active for extended periods.
