I worked at DISH full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

the money was fine overtime loved it

Cons

moving up in the company sucked i moved from a one to a four in fourteen months but other were at level 1 after a year or two. transferring to another location sucks. they need to help people move up

Advice to ManagementAdvice

i was good at what i did and i needed to move to another state due to family emergency. i applied for a transfer in october but my manager didnt submit it until december. in feb i was told that everything was still fine with the transfer so i took a pdo and i went over there my son had broke his leg so i asked for fmla and it was approved about three weeks later i called my hr rep but to no avail kept calling him and nothing so i went to the office i wanted to transfer to and they told me to talk to my hr rep apparently they never approved the transfer and i was never aware of this. dish doesnt take care of one of there best why would they care about any tech. so i quit thanks dish

    I worked at DISH full-time (more than a 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.
