Challenging environment with many incentives
Satellite Technician Manager (Current Employee), Savannah, GAFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: incentives & bonuses
Cons: sometimes insane expectations and unrealistic goals
A can-be-fun environment, marred by overly aggressive and sometimes unrealistic expectations. However, they are in a renaissance and are aggressively trying to address the issues within the organization. There are many rewards to such a challenging environment and most are to the benefit of those who are unique enough to endure it.

Decent pay/benefits not too great to work for
Field Service Specialist (Current Employee), Riverside, CAFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: good pay/benefits
Cons: very low moral throughout the office
Great company to work for however as a technician you constantly have a target on your back, there is about 8 different categories you have to maintain high numbers in or you start to lose your bonus or constant harassment from upper management. With that being said the pay is decent to start out and the benefits are great. But without having any college – more... education good luck moving up in the company, hard work will go unnoticed – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Thornton, COFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: set schedule, team setting, bonuses
Cons: expensive health care
I loved working for Dish Network. I had a set schedule with great hours and I knew what to expect every day at work. The overall atmosphere of the call center was fun and upbeat. The general manager went above and beyond for all the employees by having areas in the center where you were able to play video games, enjoy snacks, and just hang out on your – more... breaks and lunches. – less

Horrible work atmosphere
field service specialist 4 (Former Employee), Harrisburg, PAJanuary 30, 2014
you do more work then what you get paid for normal 12-14 hour days and management doesnt care how late you are out till. upper management to corrporate dont care weather you succeed. need a college degree to become manager or beyond even after years of service dont promote from within. work in all kinds of weather rain snow heat holidays doesnt matter – more... you will be forced to work. work place was rated #1 worst place to work in in the US for 2 consecutive years. i put 7 in and can vouch for all if it – less

At the BJs store in Boynton Beach I was selling at, it was tough to sell because about 95% of the people lived in Home Owners Associations, and therefore could not put satellite in their homes..

Bad customers
Loyalty agent (Current Employee), Bluefield, WVJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: pay and your team you work with
Cons: customer abuse and new under trained supervisors
The hardest part of the job is the customers. You are told to listen to them vent, well some vent by cursing and screaming . They are rude and have filthy comments. I had a man say sexual things to me on the phone and when I asked for help from a manager, I was told to handle it. Most supervisor are ok, but some are new, just hired by dish and don't – more... know what they are doing. They change policies and procedures daily! It is so hard to keep up with there changes, and if something changed while you were off.. And didn't know, you are still held responsible if you did or didn't do whatever it was. I would love my job really if I didn't have to take abuse from customers. Dish has created horrible customers by letting then abuse the employees and expect the employee to take it. Dish has a horrible turn over as well, because most can stand the customer abuse. – less

Field Service Technician (Former Employee), Napervill, IlJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: paid lunch break, on your own and can do whatever you want
Cons: management kind of blew, unless you get a good fsm
A typical day consisted of building new dishes, running lines to rooms needed for cable and showing a customer how to properly use their system. Management in Naperville was kind of off, my fsm was awesome and a great guy. Tim Giesen is his name. Training was pretty easy a month long. Enjoyed making some new friends and being able to listen to music – more... on the job. – less

they are better places to work
Field Service Specialist I (Former Employee), Lacey, WAJanuary 23, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: short lunch, expensice health insurence, senior supervisor, family/worktime ratio
Work overall is ok. Direct supervisor are good but senior supervisor well not so much. During high season you get a lot of hour which is ok but you done get enough time home. and during low season you are lucky is you get over 30 hours a week. Co-workers are ok. Are working overall is good. the downside that the way that you are evaluated is out of – more... your control. Like Completions is a tree is on the way or the apartment is facing north it show like is your fault and you get hit for that. Point per hour well that is ok minus driving time. TC-12 well is the customer mess with the system or if the equipment malfunction is your fault. customer satisfaction is not about how well you do your job is more if the customer like it which sometimes you do the install to the book the customer don't like it you get hit. Connectivity is the biggest one because a customer is getting a hd receiver and do not have internet you get it. overall it was ok – less

A typical day was when we walked into the workplace we would go to our desk log in team meeting and go over anything that changed policy wise and then we would began taking inbound calls 75-100 daily for basic customer service q&a . I learned how to be a more effective Customer Service Rep, Management was very pleasant co -workers fun and enjoyable – more... , hardest part of the job was defusing a irate Customer , The part i enjoyed myself was troubleshooting and finding the resolution to a problem – less
