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

Pros

You don't usually have a boss looking over your shoulder. You go get your work orders, grab your van and make sure you equipped with whatever you need to get your jobs done and you take off. You work and get your route done and if there's extra time, you get more work. You get paid by the hour, but only 4 days a week.

Cons

Some houses you had to go up and crawl through small cramped attics, that were dingy and dirty and sometime you had to crawl under houses (older ones) to run a line and go under mobile homes to connect the lines to different rooms. The space were always small and dirty and it make working that much harder.

Advice to Management

None

    I worked at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good people to work with, Good paid training.can be fun at times

    Cons

    Kind of like being in high school.Its a popularity contest to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to take a look at the talents and skills of the people you hire and not suppress the advancement process.Letting some of your site managers in your call centers determine who can go up the ladder is stifling your ability to develop talent internally.

    I have been working at DISH full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brand name and recognition by customers, and good product

    Cons

    Extensive travel is requred for many employees who are grossly under reimbursed for mileage on their personal vehicles. Im addtion, alll other expenses, food, lodging, office supplies (oh yeah most have to use their own equipment, printers, etc...as office materials) must be paid for out of pocket and submitted for reimbursement via snail mail, yes US Postal Mail service, can take weeks to get reimbursed as the accounting department which is supposedly owned by a family member can only manage to pay "electronically" two times a week on Mondays and Wednesdays, which needless to say never get paid until the following week. Hotel rooms must be shared when two persons of the same sex are traveling to the same place, known or not! What a disgusting and gross policy. When corporate books your travel they book at the highest rate which we must pay for up front, even if you could have gotten arrangements and half or less than them, they will not reimburse you unless you "prove" that you needed your own room!! What about HIPAA compliance???? Insurance benefits are a joke, it covers nothing and for that which it does there is a high per personal deductible to meet?

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at the "travel and expense" reimbursement policy and make it fair to your employees!!
