Worst job I've ever had
Tester (Current Employee), Spartanburg, SCJuly 19, 2014
Pros: free dish
Cons: long hours, working on off days, management
Supervisors show favoritism. They don't listen to problems of their employees. Very high turnover rate because they work the good employees to death. Not enough for $10.75!

DISH rated "Worst company in America" by its own employees
Trainer (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAJuly 18, 2014
Pros: free equipment, tools, company vehicles (in some positions)
Cons: managers, the boys club, lack of independence, mixed messages on policies and procedures
The title to this should say it all. The company is run as a "boys club" mentality and anyone outside of that club and below that club is easily disposable and replaceable. Don't ever fool yourself into thinking your work matters other than putting money into Charlie Ergens pockets.

Some of the managers will be real good but rarely do anything by the – more... books and will use their "short cuts" against you to get you booted out the door. Even when you play by the books DISH has a "Bottom 20%" mentality and anyone not competing for #1 even if your 99% on your job if there is 8 more that are 99.5% your OUT!

Take it for what it is, DISH is a great stepping stone to better things in your career somewhere else – less

Great place to acquire good team work skills. Hardest part of the job are the early hours and balancing that with home.

Would Not recommend
Senior Inventory Specialist (Former Employee), ColoradoJuly 17, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: supervisors, over worked, hours, pay etc
I worked there for nearly 7 years. Was great 5 years ago. The company started focusing on managers more then the employees who actually worked and trying to get as much out of employees as they could. No way to advance in the company. They would rather not promote within with employees that wanted to stay with the company. My supervisor would do whatever – more... he could to make himself look good. Upper management are blind of what is actually happening. We were over worked and under paid and under appreciated for our hard work. We worked in the warehouse with minimal staff. Even adding more and more tasks to do. No compensation for adding more work. We were told to suck it up and that we could handle it. No family or life at home. Bad hours for a family person. Always worked on weekend day as well. I wouldn't recommended to work for this company Expecially in the Loveland office. – less

it was fun
Field Technician (Current Employee), MinnesotaJuly 16, 2014
Days could be long, but over all it is a great job to have. Interacting with customers all day long could be fun sometimes and other times not so fun but you definitely learn how to communicate to different people.

Old way of thinking
Team Lead (Former Employee), tulsa, okJuly 15, 2014
Pros: fun loving people, always interesting, pool table and cafe
Cons: low pay, few opportunities to advance, office politics
I loved the people because they were fun and experienced. But often that experience made them closed minded to new ideas. Your pay raises are based on performance but your promotions are based on office politics. Everyone accepted the fact that you basically wait your turn to be promoted. So many people there had been there 5, 10, 15 years.

ExTech Avoid
Satellite Installer (Former Employee), Swansea, MAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: meeting good people
Cons: horrible pay
If you are thinking about applying for a Tech Position here at Dish my only word is DON'T whatever you do. This company is one of those big corporate companies that simply lost focus of the BIG picture YOU. You will never get ahead in this position because the numbers they hold you to are unreachable. To get promotions etc all those numbers need to – more... be in perfect. One of those numbers is trouble calls, I will give you a example, you will do a install that has 2 Dish Boxes you hook up both boxes they both work you confirm everything with the customer then two days later they call dish saying the box doesn't work,now say the box went bad or this is the best one customer moved the box into another room that was never connected. ready to laugh that's the Techs fault and goes against you as a trouble call. The way it should be done is a QC should be going out to these calls seeing what the issue is then make a determination,if its bad equipment or the customer moved or tapered with the equipment then its not the techs fault. But the company has to blame the issue on someone who better than the Tech. That's why the turnover rate is so high for Techs. Another good one is you will show the customer the mounting location of the dish they sign off giving you the OK you mount the Dish finish the install the other person who lives there comes home doesn't like where the dish location is they call Dish they don't tell them that they weren't there during the install they'll say you put the dish in the wrong spot once again easiest thing to do blame the Tech the customers always right rule. that's also a trouble call on you. – less

Not the best but not the worst
Field Servie Specialist (Current Employee), Vancouver, WAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: everything else
Dish Network is an ok place to work as long as you dont mind not having any idea about your day, about how many hours you are going to work, ect. The pay is good right out of the gate but when it gets slow your checks get small and a decent hourly rate doesn't do much when there is no work. I was told lies in my interview about how the company works – more... and it was def not represented well. But make sure you are a salesmen if you want to work for them because if you can't make sales then they are a hard place to work for, they require all their techs to reach a certain sales goal every month. – less

Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKJuly 10, 2014
Pros: great work environment
Cons: poor schedule and varrying shifts
Dish is a great place to work if you like the technical aspect of things. The management team is easy to talk to, and the work environment is always upbeat and positive. The only downer to working in this type of environment it the varrying schedules and shifts available.

Poor Leadership
Direct Sales Agent (Former Employee), Littleton, COJuly 10, 2014
Pros: great money
Cons: high stress job
DISH has been rated the worst company to work for in the United States by The Wall Street Journal two consecutive years. I believe they lack the leadership necessary to retain and empower employees.
