"Life as a Cablevision Tech"

Current Employee - Cable Technician in Wappingers Falls, NY
Current Employee - Cable Technician in Wappingers Falls, NY

I have been working at Cablevision Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The companies benefits are good and the work load is rarely overwhelming. Everything is provided to you. The pay really isn't that bad

Cons

Its hard to advance in your career. Most supervisors make less than some technicians because the pay rate changes from a hourly pay rate to an annual salary so theres not much to look forward to while working in the field.

Advice to Management

Offer us the ability to learn more about different departments so that we can all advance in our careers. Hire based on knowledge not salary.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent benefits that start a day one when your hired.

    Cons

    Work day is from 12:00PM-9:00PM. Customers that you're trying to win back from FIOS, Direct-TV and DISH, really hate Cablevision and won't come back even if you gave the service for free. A lot of micro-management by your supervisor. You need a minimum of 7 triple win back sales per month or you're fired. Very few Reps are successful and are with the company for years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what Reps are saying and act. Don't think you know everything, saying we have done this for years and we've been successful. Well...you could be more successful by listening to imput from various Reps.
