    Pros

    Company Van, Paid Training and Bonus. You have the ability to earn money which is great! The more you sell the more you make.

    Cons

    Drive Time, Work any number amount of days without a day off. Also, if you don't sell anything which they don't mention you get points taken off your pie which can lead up to a written.

    I worked at DISH full-time

    Pros

    Independent work environment. Good pay and benefits. I worked as a remote quality assurance technician for over 2 years. I overall enjoyed it mostly due to my direct manager. Free dish programming

    Cons

    Little assistance from HR from the start. Lots of travel, long hours and staying in hotels. Unrealistic goals for some regions.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest lessening the load on the Quality Assurance managers. They seem like they have to do the work of HR and their own bosses at times which stretches them very thin over a very large team.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Having worked at DISH for 6+ years, I continue to have a hard time relating to those who feel it necessary to completely destroy this company in their reviews on this site. For those just starting out their career, I firmly believe that DISH is among a handful of companies that provide its employees with ample opportunity and advancement. If you're willing to work hard and speak up when you want to take on new challenges, you will go far.

    Cons

    With more employers looking for innovative ways to offer their employees greater work-life balance, employee benefits and compensation, it's hard to continue to rely on "opportunity" as DISH's greatest benefit. While I've loved the opportunities and people I've worked with, it's becoming much harder to turn down opportunities that offer more flexibility and time off.

    Advice to Management

    Start to consider the risks of only selling "opportunity" as our greatest benefit. When your top performers have to leave in order to reap the rewards of taking on opportunities (e.g. more pay, benefits, time off) it might be worth taking a second look at long-term benefit planning.

    Pros

    Great benefits, supportive atmosphere, okc management knows what they are doing and will get out there and work right along with you.

    Cons

    Short training in the field

    Advice to Management

    Give new techs the opportunity to train more in the field and not in the classroom.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overtime. Coworkers are nice, fsms do their best when they aren't overwhelmed. Incentives and bonuses, flexibility in scheduling, company provided tools, uniforms, equipment, van, gas.

    Cons

    Sales. It's awful, selling generally over priced items that most people have or don't really need. Dish is incredibly pushy regarding sales. The hiring process: stop hiring any person willing to work and start being more selective with who you hire. Make the initial entry tests harder, or create a way to weed out those who will most certainly be a poor employee.

    Advice to Management

    Make sales optional, not required. Just let us do our jobs without the threats of being fired if we don't sell your stuff.
