Why I love RTC

RTC is more than just a company providing telecommunications services in south Louisiana, we are part of the greater community and a family of RTC employees.

As a small, Louisiana-owned company, we are very different from our competition and we like it that way. Our customers and employees are part of our family.

Why I love RTC

It has truly been a wonderful experience to work for a local company with great growth potential. It is fun to work in an environment where we can turn on a dime versus maneuvering a huge ocean liner when we need to respond to our customer wants and needs. We have encouraged our employee base to “Give em the pickle” which has allowed our installers and customer service to not get caught up in the small stuff.  This has enabled RTC to consistently beat the big guys and has created a truly wonderful customer service experience for our customers.
