    I worked at DISH full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, worked 3 days a week. It's pretty great if you have a family.

    Cons

    Standing, get good supportive shoes. It was a lot of moving around and it can be difficult.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Success comes when you do your best and care, it’s been proven.

    Cons

    Lazy employees who don’t care need to leave and go to a company that doesn’t want to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Need to move the cancers out quick, they will impact the business, stop giving them to many opportunities to get better. They choose to not care. No more can be done to those who feel entitled.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    commission plus hourly. twice a month meals.

    Cons

    decent commission possible, but no uptrainiby at all and their sales techniques are buyer or shopper. theres a ton of ways to sell things but thwy dont know any of it. rewards are week

    Advice to Management

    theres a billion ways to sell a pen. add more voriety cuz what works for me might not work for u. also setting the expectation of 1k in a week when very few of ur staff make that. it sets an expectation that i want to leave cuz i cant sell it good enough and u guys wont train me "if u cant sell i cant teach u how to sell" is something told to me and my coworkers

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of hours and lots of money made with overtime. Always have work available. Provide uniforms/ rain coats/ jackets/ hats/ use company van and tools while at work. If you sell something you get points to buy cool stuff.

    Cons

    Management is not usually hired internally so they are clueless and can not help the new technicians so the new technicians perform badly. Selling items used to be fun but now if you don't sell your job is threatened. Schedule changes last minute. No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers internally. Just because someone has a college degree does not make them fit to perform a skilled trade such as satellite communications.

  7. "Great Place to Work and Full Of Opportunity"

    Pros

    Company with full of potential. Great leadership and great work environment. Company loves to challenge it's employees and expect 110%, 100% of the time! Training available and opportunities to move up or laterally between fields. If you are willing to relocate you can do anything you want to providing you excel in your current role. Pay is competitive and very fair. Plenty of opportunity for over time (if you are hourly).

    Cons

    None. Like any company it is what you make of it. Benefits could be a little better. Co-Pays are kind of high for a family who uses the insurance a lot.
