    Terrible job for anyone who has a family or really any life outside work. This is a last option job!

    Former Employee - Field Service Technician in Pittston, PA
    Former Employee - Field Service Technician in Pittston, PA

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

    Pros

    The pay check can be great if you are a hard worker and care about quality. Plenty of chances to get a raise. Ability to work alone and not have someone always watching you directly.

    Cons

    Forced overtime (daily, weekly and sometimes for months), unpredictable schedule. Start at 7am and finish when they let you (sometimes 10-11pm). Very rigid system of checks and balances, while most things are within your control, the things that are not are still held against you. Forced to do sales at an unsuspecting customer's home. Dish will hold you to a monthly quota of several hundred dollars. Ultimately, Dish does not care about it's employees or their families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care as much about retaining employees as you do customers and focus on what makes employees enjoy their job will lead to a better success.

    Current Employee - Field Service Specialist in Memphis, TN

    Pros

    Always work. Always Overtime. Bonus Incentives. Working on your own. Feeling of accomplishment regularly. Performance based raises and promotions.

    Cons

    Poorly managed from top to bottom. Low employee morale at multiple layers. Huge separation feeling between corporate world and those in the trenches. Metrics for raises and bonuses somewhat unrealistic and not statistically sound.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what the largest group of employees go through, the field service specialists and their managers. Compensate corporate technicians closer to that of retail service providers.
