Pros

good paycheck cause you work a whole lot of hours

Cons

Low pay - You don't know what time you are getting done(somewhere between 6pm and 10pm and you start time is 6:30am or 7am) - No time for family - Your suppose to take a lunch but if you do, your day just gets even longer, so i skip lunch usually - Mandatory Overtime all the time - No Holidays off unless you use a vacation day( what ever happen to getting time off for Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter to spend time with family and friends) - No time for your body to get any rest - All the equipment is made overseas but yet they sell there services in the USA only(wonder why China owns us now) - Techs are over worked but try and survive cause they need a job

Advice to ManagementAdvice

4 days on 3 days Off for all including sub contractors unless the employee wants to work more days. Major Holidays off unless employees want to volunteer. Make Routes until 3pm so that if tech runs into a reinstall or an incorrect work order they can still get home at a decent hour. Lay off the micro managing

    Management more worried about how to fire employees than develop them. Too much politics.

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Best paying job in the area.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care unless you are one of their buddies, seems if you hang out with management after work, you get promoted better. Quality control is more interested in finding fault to dock you. Seniority means nothing, in fact it seems the longer you are here, the quicker they are to fire you so you don't have to get your raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Crack down on politics in the work place. Remember long term employees mean a lot in this world and nobody is perfect. When an agent voices displeasure, please don't respond with "Well, at least you have a job" which is one thing management here loves to say.
