Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Hilliard, OH

I worked at DISH full-time for more than a year

Pros

Free tv service, people were ok to work with they always had items to give away and if you sold premium channels you could get gift cards to walmart or target.

Cons

Bonus system always changed and now they are more focused on sales. Because you may take different types of calls you may not meet the goals to get your bonus. QA is subjective depending on who is scoring you for that period. Due to business needs your schedule may be changed. During my time there I had 4 different schedules.

    I worked at DISH full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Unmatched feelings of joy and liberation when you no longer work there.

    Cons

    Culture (watch the movie "From Dusk Till Dawn" as a reference), looks sexy and inviting but you're in big trouble once you're locked inside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked here for almost 8 years which turned out to be about 1 too many. The initial mom and pop type of culture was challenging but fun to work with, helping the company grow and develop. As the years went by the atmosphere morphed into a very greedy and ruthless environment where the senior level management team sought to expel free thinkers and respectful mid and lower level managers and replace them with psychophantic minions that operate in automaton fashion. The employee churn and dissatisfaction with this company are off the charts due to the company's attitude which is that they can never ask you to do too much or pay you too little to do it. If your young and seeking experience you will get it here but it will take its toll, just remember this place is just a pit stop and not a career - No one retires from Dish!
