Satellite installer is not a bad job, its the company that makes it bad. My title is technician but yet dish is always trying to force us to sell the customer stuff, if not the will break you. I dont see the word salesman in my title so wtf. The pay was good when it was hourly, but now its by point system and while a 4 or 5 rm install pays ok, troubleshooting is very underpaid. Now we take pictures of everything including stickers on remotes and force ppl to connect internet to recievers, if you dont, dish will break you. You take pictures of everything you do, then send them so that a fsm could see them sometimes 30 minutes later. So an hour tc will take close to two hours. The hours are the worst of any company i ever worked for. You work 6 hours 1 day and the next day you work 15. Ridiculous routes, sometimes driving more than actually working. And by the way, in central florida, we dont get free dish, or a discount. It got to the point that tommorow im turning in the van... Good riddance
