Stay Away
Engineering Technician (Current Employee), El Paso, TXSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: benefits for new hires. including 80 hours of vacation, 401k
Cons: described above
I have had two years of experience in the manufacturing center in El Paso, TX within multiple departments: Engineering, Test Engineering, production, IT, and maintenance.

Management in all departments is poorly chosen and there is very little qualifications required of any kind. The result is poor managers and a large unmotivated work force. The managers – more... have no idea what they or their employees are supposed to be doing. They are only there to collect a paycheck and attempt to get raises. They never give credit to their workers and will gladly step on any workers to go on up. This may seem like other workplaces, but here it seems as though it is encouraged to screw over workers out of a decent pay.

The Performance Appraisal system is a complete joke. Every department has to put their employees on a standard bell curve and choose which employees to put on probation and which to give a raise. This never works and as usual the newer employees get screwed and the older employees get a minimal raise (3-6%).

If Dish would fix these problems. (These are corporate and human resource issues.) Then it wouldn't be that bad to work here.

My advice. If you need the job (Engineers, Management, Production, Technicians) take it and do not stop applying at other places. You will be wasting your efforts hoping for a "just" raise. – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Hilliard, OHSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: customer service skills
Cons: sitting at the desk
The days at work are long and extended, ive learned how to deal with customers with rude attitudes and nice customers. Technical support was another positive learning experence for me. The hardest part of the job was sitting at the desk the whole shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning how to deal with the customers in a professional – more... manner. – less

Contractor-Installer (Former Employee), sunnyvale txSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: i enjoy going out of town on trips with the company
Cons: working on hot roofs
A typical day at work would be getting your printed jobs and loading your van with all the equipment that you would for that day and start calling your customers to let them know that you will be installing there services that day. On this job we would have our managers to call us from time to time to check on us and make sure that we had everything – more... we needed to preform for that days task. One of the hardest things for me about this job was working on hot roofsfor long period of times of the day. What I enjoyed must about this job was being able to go on out of town trips with the company and see different states and city. – less

Okish Job
Customer Service Representative II (Former Employee), Flushing, NYSeptember 1, 2014
Very fast paced when answering phones. You really learn to multitask from this job. Management is friendly but sometimes hard to get along with when you need something and the management won't work with you. Hardest part of the job is that you have to do more and more and you know that your pay is not increasing.
