Advancement Prospects

Advancement for meter readers usually depends on job performance, experience, and education. Advancement opportunities also vary depending on the place of employment. Many utility companies encourage their employees to take additional courses at local technical schools to further their careers. They may advance to positions such as chief meter readers, meter reader supervisors, or water service inspectors. They may also move into positions such as field collectors, field service representatives, or field investigators. While they do some meter reading, these workers are mainly responsible for starting and stopping service, collecting on accounts, and following up on customer complaints.
