Positive learning experience

Intern (Current Employee)
Blue Bell, PA

I have been working at DirectSatUSA

ProsExtremely efficient logistics company. Company is headed toward continuous growth after initial financial instability. Management is very direct in direction and what is needed. Not a place for people who are unable to meet deadlines or work hard.

ConsWork environment was somewhat strange. Competition between workers was extremely evident, workers seemed to sometimes not want to share information or offer help due to the fact that the company might seek to cut down.

Advice to Senior ManagementExtremely good leadership, especially in regard to prioritizing what needed to be done and the goals of the week. Possibly, be more understanding to employees and cut loose people who are deemed to be slackers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Horrifcly LONG HOURS, Mediocre pay

Installer (Former Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

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

ProsHUGE discount on Directv subscription.

Cons6 days a week working 7:00am until 8:00pm+ during spring and summer.
Pay is on a Grade/Score system.
EXTREME pay penalties for customers not having a telephone land line, and refusing the protection plan.
Ladders issued are a dangerous, badly overused JOKE!
Training BLOWS! (4-5 weeks of 8 bucks an hour and training made up as you go along)

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget, EVERY employee injury accident is AUTOMATIClLLY due to their negligence. Actual accidents never happen in the DirectSatUSA world. Hammer that home in your "Safety" meetings!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Terrible place to work

Dispatcher (Current Employee)
King of Prussia, PA

I have been working at DirectSatUSA

ProsDecent hours, 4 days of 10 hours
Some of the people are good to work with
Ability to be flexible with your schedule

ConsNo room for growth
Incompetent Management
Treated very poorly by management
Management gets stressed out at employees about management bonuses.

Advice to Senior ManagementFirst of there is way too much management. Management should focus more on customer service rather then scamming DirectTV and their customers to inflate their bonuses.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
