    Pros

    working at directv had many good benifits, i got free tv, good pay and a flexible schedule to work with my school classes.

    Cons

    One thing about working at directv was that if you missed any time during any part of your shift you were overly punished.

    Pros

    There is good compensation and benefits on paper. The reality is the hours are insane more than 70 hours a week are required. There is no overtime pay, they tell you if you turn in a time sheet that shows more than 40 hours you will be written up and eventually fired. The management is extremely disorganized. Things were on the way to improving but I'd be surprised if there is any significant improvement without major management changes. All this being said, from the people I've met it seems clear that it is not like this in other shops.

    Cons

    The catty nature of the management (it's not all of them, but i would say most)... The Lack of overtime pay. They say it's piece rate, but the piece rate it too low with out the hourly cushion. Start at 6 am with the latest appointment potentially starting at 8pm six days a week? Pay me overtime I deserve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together and stop asking techs to work without pay.
