    I have been working at DIRECTV full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Excellent benefits and carrier opportunities. The fact that you don't have a supervisor looking over your shoulder every time you turn around makes this job an A+ alone. There are also new challenges everyday. Which I love a good challenge. You don't have to be in an office 8 hrs a day everyday 5/6 days a week.

    Cons

    Pay is decent but unfair. They make you do certain things and say it's part of your job but they don't pay you for it. For example, they tell you you must go to mandatory meetings but as a production technician you don't get paid. They call it administrative time. They also calculate a time to complete a job and it determines how much pay you receive after completion. 99% of the time it benefits the company and not the installer.

    Advice to Management

    Just let the technicians do their jobs.
