Pros

Good starting pay, bi-weekly bonuses, cheap Dish service, work mostly independent without someone hovering over you all day, work outside in new places everyday, Dish supplies everything but boots. You don't have to buy your own tools, gas, materials or uniforms. Plenty of room to grow and advance into a management or quality assurance position if you want. 401k, health, dental, short and long term disability, discounts on a bunch of services and products including Verizon and AT&T wireless service, discounts on new car purchases, 40% discount on the products we sell. In addition to the ability to get up to $250 bonus every check, we also get points for selling products and services that we can redeem for ipads, books, tents, bikes, hotel rooms, and pretty much anything else you can think of. Plenty of work, I've never been sent home for lack of work. Lots of paid vacation that you can start using as soon as your probation period is up. Paid holidays. Transfer to just about anywhere in the USA if you decide to move. Three days off every week. Get to meet new people everyday from all walks of life.

Cons

Health insurance deductible is pretty high. Also this job isn't for everyone. If you are scared of climbing high on ladders or under houses then look somewhere else. Also you will run into spiders, snakes and other critters. Sometimes you will work in extreme hot or cold conditions. As long as you know all this going into the job and don't have a problem with it the pros out weigh the cons.

Advice to Management

Getting an insurance plan with a lower deductible would be good.

    Pros

    Dish has great people an personalities that help with the work flow. They have perks and giveaways for some employees

    Cons

    Dish treats its supervisors and agents like children. Consistently changing metrics to make them unachievable. Being told to do something then being yelled at when you do. Forcing employees to take on new skills without any change in pay causing them to lose their bonus . Not enough training to managers and employees that actually cover real issues . Forced to meet AHT,QA,Repeat rate. Transfers Upsell all as new agent without any chance to meet.

    Advice to Management

    Remember when you were an agent? Or a coach? Yeah that's the person you should defend. Alot of upper management needs to stop looking for the cheating way to meet numbers and look for an actual outlook
