Pros

Innovative products at relatively low prices compared to the competition. More programming choices, including international programming that competitors don't have. Call center offered four 10-hour day schedule, which was nice.

Cons

Hired by AEI, the DISH installation agency for most of Wisconsin and Michigan. No training other than listening in with another agent for a day. Minimal training materials. Had to make my own binder of job aides on equipment, programming, and policies. Was instructed to not assist customers if AEI had not been out to residence in over 60 days, even if it was something easy to fix. Had to transfer calls to 'Senior Technical Advisor' at DISH. Techs had it worse. Worked 6 days a week, 10-12 hour days. Was instructed not to record any kind of negative comments from customers about service installers (being late, rude, unprofessional, etc.) where DISH could see them. Instead, we had to pass comments on to supervisors who would, allegedly, pass them onto office managers. Apparently, they were afraid of the wrath of DISH, too. Call center managers just sat in their office all day looking busy, interacting with agents too infrequently, rarely having anything helpful to say. Worst work experience of my 25 year work history.

Advice to Management

Show some respect for your customers and employees and maybe you'll create a better professional reputation for yourself. But since the word 'respect' is an alien concept to you, I doubt you ever will.

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

    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 Management

    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.
