Pros

detailed program for college graduates that helps you gain real life experience and become well rounded. 6 month rotation that allows you to go from department to department to evaluate your perfect fit. During which, you gain valuable skills.

Cons

Very few cons. Since it is a new program, it can be a bit more organized.

    Pros

    There is money to be made if you work hard and can handle no recognition and constant stress.
    The company is willing to take a chance and promote people who have no experience.

    Cons

    You will be written up for things in which you have no control. Even when it is company policy and you follow that policy, you're still wrong and are held accountable for it.
    The company has lost focus on resolving the customers problem and only cares about the numbers.
    It is unnerving to come to work everyday and not know if your being set up to be fired. There is no loyalty to their employees. It is very much about what they can get from you today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you want to change the culture get rid of your managers. The culture in Phoenix is male dominated with a win at all cost mentality. This is not the type of WIN that you want! Get rid of the split shifts. For Dishnet agents this is like being beat with stick for 13 hours a day. We're your most tenured and knowledgeable agents yet have the most ridiculous and unattainable goals to meet. (40% of calls are techniciians but held to the same standards as a non DishNet BB agent that speaks only to customers.
    I think it would be great if you did the undercover boss thing. If you planted a few people in training and transferred a few into the different depts. You would probably be shocked in the way things REALLY happen.

    Install Technician Level 2 but never promoted due to never being able to meet 1 of 50 requirements in any given month.

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

    Pros

    Training. work wear, fellow technicians are the most nicest people you'll ever work with. Field service managers are very understanding of the dire situations the techs are in. But they report to upper management who have a no excuse no matter what mind set.

    Cons

    Management have their heads jammed up their you know whats... Health insurance, dangerous, long hours, carrot on a stick promotional incentives. Employee turnover, People filthy homes, hazardous, Safety is number one priority, (in office training) but the reality demand from management that you complete each job supersedes safety. Management know this. They just dont want to be caught and

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like disposable plasma bags.
