Pros

You may be placed on a team with some good people and make some work friends. There is really no other pro.

Cons

They have absolutely no respect for their employees. Forced overtime that you find out about 5 minutes before you clock out for the next day, if you cant work it cause you already made plans youl get in trouble. The Human Resource officer there could give "2 sh*ts" about your problems, or if they know you have a complaint, instead of dealing with it they will avoid you for as long as possible or give you just 5 minutes to cover the issue. The managers there will watch porn on their smartphones in sight of their subordinates (online harassment where I come from). The managers are promoted not cause they have great people skills, or management ability but because they did their time of 5 plus years. These uneducated people are the bosses of those who have degrees. Try working for someone who constantly feels threatened by you and your education. they will make it hell if you want an advancement cause you are going to replace them. Never speak your mind if it is a new idea. They will tell you theres always room for advancement, only if youre a man and only if you know how to "play the game".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire managers and HR reps who know what they are doing, who have degrees or background in their fields. Take care of the employees and maybe you wouldnt be in the top 3 WORST places to work in AMERICA

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    working on your own all day, being outside, meeting new people, plenty of overtime, fellow employees are a pleasure to work with

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea what it is like to be a field technician. They need to go "undercover" to see what we go through on a daily basis. Not having the tools needed to function, stupid van layouts that make absolutely no sense, having quotas on sales, (I signed up to be a technician, not a salesman), insane minimum standards for promotion to next level, customer service that will tell the customer anything they want to hear, insane hours that seem to never end. They just added a 5-7 window and it is not anything that management sold us as employees. It is just another way to add 2 more hours to our day. Days will easily go 12 to 13 hours. Horrible insurance that covers nothing and is expensive. An HR department that lies to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What happened to the employee questioneer? You guys have done nothing to make working here any better than when you were voted worst company to work for ever. Start getting feedback from actual field technicians and act on it. The crap that we deal with on a daily basis never gets any better.

    Pros

    good co workers to work with

    Cons

    This company blows, the hrs are way too long 10-14 hr days, and you have no life outside of work. Most of the time your tired from a long day of work. Company will keep you working until your dead!!! Unrealistic goals to meet, shitty equipment that always goes bad, goes out during rain storms. You work in bad weather conditions, rain, snow, heat, blizzards etc. You work holidays and get shitty pay. Training for new hires is a joke, you do work that level 4's do and are on your own on a job. Also you have to be a sales person and sell things that are over priced, all that management cares about is sales. Would mot recommend this job to anyone else, stay away from dish!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start to care about safety and not sales, bring techs back at 5pm
