Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 21, 2019
Horrible work/life balance. Unapproachable, uncaring leadership. Company culture is: "give your life to the company, but your work won't be recognized".

Field Service Manager (Current Employee) –  MidwestJanuary 19, 2019
Depending on the day, you are liable to get any number of different answers to a single question. No consistency, things always changing with no notice.

Good work place but not for everyone
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXJanuary 18, 2019
Good pay, good team support, great incentives and benefits, discount on services, great place to work for customer service...

hardest things about the job: good schedules aren't always available, and most calls are angry customers.
Pros
you get prices from premium channels and for having good numbers
Cons
a lot of customer complaints, calls from customers that are not tech savvy trying to follow your instructions.

The Bad Place
Resource Center Specialist (Former Employee) –  Alvin, TXJanuary 18, 2019
Seems like all seasoned supervisors and managers who are consistent and are good performers always get let go when they have too many years working for DISH. I would think you want to keep these stable employees, but DISH let's them go to save money.
Cons
Always working Mandatory overtime

Cable Technician (Former Employee) –  Dickinson, NDJanuary 17, 2019
I had an excellent Boss, I was a subcontractor so I did not receive any benefits but made great pay! Some long work days but home every night. Knowledge of sales would be helpful.

Poor Work Environment
Field Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Monmouth Junction, NJJanuary 17, 2019
The only good thing about the job was decent health benefits and 401k plan. The work itself, the hours, the environment, and management, were all to be desired and lacking on all fronts. There was a very high turnaround for field technicians, and for these very reasons. The entire over one and a half years that I worked there until I left, I was the most recent retained field technician. All others after me came and went. That says something.

Cable Satellite Technician (Former Employee) –  Duquesne, PA 15110January 17, 2019
Loved the job management sucked at my location they don't care about your well being you ask for help and will not receive any they don't tell you all that you need to know in training certain locations are racist they tell you they don't want to see you fail yet put you in situations that there is a high chance of you fail seem like the rules change at anytime
Pros
No one is looking over your shoulder
Cons
They dont care about your well being at all

Dish is a great place to work. It takes hard work and long hours but you can move up in the company. Pay is decent. Dish can be a good career for the right person.

Working with Dish was okay. Except there was a change in the way management handled many things. Very focused on tech numbers rather than job quality.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJanuary 15, 2019
Hours are not flexible - you are given a schedule that you cannot change and must work and if you leave more than 3 times you were fired. Which included if your kid or family member got sick, or if you got sick, or if life happened 3 days out of the year you were fired.
Pros
Room for advancement
Cons

Decent place to work
Satellite Technician (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INJanuary 14, 2019
The managers at my office were great and loved working for them. Everything else about the company was just horrible. Could complain all day but don't have the time.

Customer survey are dumb because you can do everything for the Customer spend an extra 3 hours at their job and they still tank your scores for reasons like didn't talk enough (was friendly, but not talkative)
Pros
good starting job for younger people and if you worked there a while
Cons
job security and hours

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Harlingen, TXJanuary 14, 2019
No real training and you make 1 mistake and the QA team is on a hunt for 2 more to fire you instead warning you and training you properly. Pay is not worth it for all the back to back customer complaint calls about Dish losing more and more contracts on local channels and premium channels like HBO. You get in trouble if your on a call to long to try and take care of the customer and you get in trouble if you transfer the customer to many times. It's a double edge sword the way they want you to help the customer without getting in trouble. They have a high turnover rate with there supervisors and everybody teaches you differently. they are inconsistent when it comes to training you. I was a good employee. never complained and did what I was trained to do. I made 1 mistake and QA team took that and hunted down 2 more like it to say I have a negative pattern. If they just would have helped me correct my mistake and trained me properly, they would have had a happy employee.
Pros
You earn sales points to buy merchandise
Cons
pay and job security
