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

Pros

The work is varied and you're given the independence to be out working on your own without constant supervision. You'll get to meet lots of different people and I learned quite a bit from it. Plenty of overtime. Holiday pay and bonuses a nice perk.

Cons

The hours are unpredictable. You may be out until midnight or you may be home by 7, but I hardly ever get clocked out without overtime. The company has started moving more towards a sales focus for technicians too.

Crawl spaces and dirty homes.

Getting promoted is dependent on maintaining a flawless job quality level. If you have a strict quality assurance guy, that means no promotions.

Advice to Management

Management at the local office has been wonderful. Higher up management hasn't caused me any problems, so I guess keep on not causing problems.

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

    Pros

    Good training, Attentive instructors. Get your own truck (as a remote tech). Provide all your tools.

    Cons

    Rules constantly changing. Ridiculous metrics, unattainable consistently. Poorly trained managers.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes. Have an independent company review how you operate and obtain TRULY anonymous employee feedback. Then you will see why you score so low. Joe, you have good intentions. Get rid of the Charlie way of doing things. I saw your interview about Charlie. You have never seen him be, lets say a bad person? You won't while having tea and crumpets. Look at your high turnover rate. "Dish is not for everybody". Cop-out. If you truly believed what you are saying, you would see about making things better for all and you would retain those whom you speak of.
