SOFTWARE TESTING SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Tempe, AZJune 16, 2014
Cons: would never wish this job on anyone.
Working for dish network was possibly one of the top five things in my life that has regret attached to it, the managements job is to fire employees at the time I worked with this company they had an attrition rate of roughly 150 - 200 employees a month, and would often find ways not to pay employees on time often skipping pay checks and making them – more... monthly. This company also enjoys having employees drive into work regardless of time and distance to tell them that they aren't needed for the day due to the call volume. – less

Call Center Manager (Former Employee), Tulsa, OKJune 15, 2014
Pros: benefits, flexiable hours in management position, leadership of other employees
Cons: overworked on responsibilities, long hours, lack of development on manager level
I learned that you can be the driver of your own development. This was a place that it wasn't who you knew but what you knew. However hardest part of job was being over worked in a leadership position.

Horrible and no advancement
Tester 2 (Current Employee), El Paso, TXJune 14, 2014
Pros: sick days, pto's, weekends off
Cons: poor management skills, no people skills, no communication
Management is the worst. And because of this supervisor's must follow management orders. So, therefore this place than becomes a place of no advancement. Supervisors, also need to know how to treat people right instead of worrying about there numbers, in other words they need to know what people skills are. Supervisors and management need to learn how – more... to communicate with there workers instead of tell them that there behind in there numbers or that the Q.C. found a defect on one of the receivers. – less

Customer Service (Current Employee), Alvin, TXJune 6, 2014
Pros: incentives, pay for performance (commision), performance appraisals
Cons: didn't sign up for a sales job and yet it is a requirement, a large part of your job is technical support which is also not clearly disclosed at the beginning
There is always someone there to encourage you to do well. Help is at your fingertips. I have worked under 3 managers and each was very helpful. The typical call center culture involves being a doormat for customers and this is the only down side to customer service anywhere. Dish makes it worth while with incentives and a team that welcomes you and – more... supports you. – less

I enjoyed working for dish network. The number one skill I learned in depth was to communicate. Every different location I went to I needed to communicate with the customer to know what they wanted.

Tester 1 (Current Employee), Spartanburg, scJune 4, 2014
Pros: 4 day schedule
Cons: management
Not the most professional of places to work. My departments supervisors lead from the back, only care about numbers, and shows favoritism. You will be taken advantage of if you are a hard worker, as most people that have been there more than 3 months, can't stand working there.

Dish Network Installer/Technician (Former Employee), Cleveland, GAJune 2, 2014
Cons: lied to.
Was hired as a remote technician. I found out after I went through training that I would not get my van for over 1 year having to commute too far for work every day. The bonuses are too far out of reach. They make you sell other things such as sound bars and threaten your job if you don't. Then they white glove the van when you get back at the end of – more... the 10 hour day. Terrible place to work. – less

Satellite Television Technician (Former Employee), Savannah, GAMay 29, 2014
Pros: employees, managment, pay
Cons: long drives, long night, work con. outside of the office (customers homes) were not always that great
The Savannah Depot of Dish network was a great place to work because of the people. I did work long hours, but the people keep me going. I worked here for nearly 3 years, and the money wasn't bad for the area
