    Excellent merit based pay scale, but at the cost of high stress.

    I worked at DIRECTV full-time for more than 3 years


    Above average compensation for area. Excellent promotional opportunities for high performers. Yearly raise that is truly based on performance. Above average benefits package. Company definitely cares for their employees.


    Extremely high stress environment - dealing with hostile customers and technicians, and workload was too much for each person. Regularly had to take work home with me just to stay above water. Also had to check emails constantly - at work and home - so as not get severely behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees instead of trying to get by with the bare minimum and overloading your staff to the point of burn out.
