Cons

They offer optional time off a lot, if you aren't careful you won't have a paycheck large enough to cover expenses.
Talking all day when you are sick is tough

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a closer eye on your employees. If you notice that an employee has a sore throat or has lost their voice, offer to give them time off of the phones for training. Little things like that make a big difference to us.

    Pros

    Good pay, good vans. The warehouse finally got their act together.

    Cons

    DISH will promote you, and if you stay at DISH getting paid that much, DISH will lay you off and pay a new hire less to do the same work you did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A Company that bows to their own computer

    Former Employee - Dish Network Installer  in  Amarillo, TX

    Pros

    It was a better job than most are able to find where I live on a remote ranch. They do supply your vehicle and all your gas and pay you from the time you leave your house.. which can add up into numerous over time hours when they are busy.

    Cons

    Their software acquired in the summer of 2011 has no point of reference for miles and miles covered by remote technicians. Therefore anyone who must travel a great deal will always have low productivity and probably be ineligible for promotion regardless of how good they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use a little common sense. Don't go entirely for computer numbers crunching!
