sweatshop labor 2.0

Installation Technician (Former Employee) Green Bay, WI (US)

Prosthey will hire anyone with a pulse

Cons•Pay is as unclear as the hours you will work. I was never able to figure out how they were paying me even when i was hourly. If you figure in the cost of commuting to the far out location of the base and it your tool rental cost, expect make below minimum wage for at least 2 years
•Expect "bad dog" training tactics. anytime anything goes wrong and it will everyday they will find a way to lower your pay for the following month as a form of reprimanding you for something that may or may not be your fault.
•Hours worked make it an extremely unsafe work enviroment. All the techs look like they ae trying out for a part on The Walking Dead. My trainer veared off the road many times sacaring the !@&* out of me.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry hiring robots.

Ive never seen a more out of touch regional manager. Nothing can be said here to get it through to them that the DISH contract for techs is in dire need of repair.

Working anywhere else will be better. McDonnalds Burger King, anything is better than DISH

    The Hard Working DISH Employee View

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at DISH full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: Recently I read an article released in BusinessWeek.com and I was taken back. I think I am so blown away by not just the article… Cons: Travel expenses, car rentals, hotels, etc (excluding flights) are placed on personal credit cards and expensed. Although expense reports are a normal corporate practice most… Advice to Senior Management: Keep doing a great job!
