Innovative, fun and friendly work environment
Dish Technician (Current Employee), Chanhassen, MNNovember 13, 2014
Pros: bonuses, customer satisfaction, pto, weekends off, paid vacation
Cons: insurance
The usual restocking day requires technicians to drive company vehicles to our local Dish Warehouse and to meet our mangers and techs for weekly announcements, rewards. New equipment and new electronics and cables etc., are then distributed to technicians for selling to our future customers. The management is well ran by our FSM's (Field specialist Manager) that keep their technicians up to date with jobs, safety and new things being offered to us as techs. The co-workers are great to work with making the environment and experience working with them better. We work by ourselves at local homes in our work area but also communicate with each other using company phones, and ipads so everyone knows if someone or something is needed at a customers home. The hardest part of the job are probably the bigger installs. They take a bit of more time for technicians to finish on. My most enjoyable part of the job is getting to meet new people and see the smiles on their face when your job is finished in a timely manner while having great customer service and communicative skills.

great pay and benefits
Field Service Technician (Former Employee), King of Prussia, PANovember 10, 2014
Pros: great benefits and pay
Cons: weather, carrying ladders and unrealistic goals
they make it nearly impossible to achieve any of the goals set for you, they educate you on all the fundamentals of satellite installation, then send you out to the field with unrealistic goals and watch you fail, the best part of the job is driving off the lot and escaping the fake people there to help you fail, the hardest part of the job is installing systems in cold and wet weather. the most enjoyable part of the job is the different customers you meet day in day out

Customer Service Representative / Certified (Current Employee), Bluefield west virginiaNovember 5, 2014
Cons: the whole job
Worst job ever. Customers always rude, because they have basically been trained that the meaner you are to the person handling your issue the better you will be compensated.

Atmosphere was awesome
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Bluewell, WVNovember 2, 2014
The benefits and atmosphere make the job worth while on some days, but not having enough manager coverage makes it very difficult. Also, the company claims they will work with you during shift changes and does not. I love having the TV service for free, and the other benefits are good also. Not for everyone though. Found myself disliking it more than I liked it. Negatives outweighed the positives in the end.

You can definitely find somewhere better to work
Tester 1 (Current Employee), Spartanburg, SCOctober 27, 2014
Pros: free tv
Cons: everything else
And that somewhere is any other job you can find. This company doesn't deserve any good reviews, and the ones on here are to be ignored, as they are most likely made up.

If you are looking for a job with little to no advancement this is the place
If you are looking for a job with bad supervisors, this is the place
If you are looking for a job with bad upper management, this is the place
If you are looking for a job with little incentive to come in, this is the place
If your looking for a job where bonuses are all the matters, this is the place
If you looking at this job.... Look somewhere else

You have been warned

Not worth it
Field Service Technician (Current Employee), Garner, NCOctober 26, 2014
Pros: paid vacations and paid holidays
Cons: long hours and mandatory overtime. low pay
The hours are long when there is work to be done. They hire you at 4 days a week 10 hours a day. Then make you work 5 days a week at close to 15 hours a day. They make getting a raise very hard. They start you out at 12.75 an hour and don't give you a raise for years.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), El Paso, TXOctober 24, 2014
Everything was great with Dish except when it came down to my studies, they would give me a really hard time when I need to change my schedule.
