Former Employee - Field Service Technician in Riverside, CA
Former Employee - Field Service Technician in Riverside, CA

I worked at DISH full-time (more than an year)

Pros

You don't usually have a boss looking over your shoulder. You go get your work orders, grab your van and make sure you equipped with whatever you need to get your jobs done and you take off. You work and get your route done and if there's extra time, you get more work. You get paid by the hour, but only 4 days a week.

Cons

Some houses you had to go up and crawl through small cramped attics, that were dingy and dirty and sometime you had to crawl under houses (older ones) to run a line and go under mobile homes to connect the lines to different rooms. The space were always small and dirty and it make working that much harder.

    Pros

    dont have to take your home with you, you can meet new people and lastly, its a paycheck in a bad economy.

    Cons

    horrible hours , open 365 days a year, worked in customer service for several years, not too much room to move up and does not look that great on your resume for the future.

    Pros

    Helpful coworkers 3 days off a week

    Cons

    They will crush your hopes of advancement Due to promotion system that sets up techs for failure. Pay and benefits sick

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fsm and IM are good and helpful everyone else above them are out of touch with reality and do not have a clue. Grow up and encourage moral of techs instead of beating them down with stupid metrics and scoring on things out of our control.
