Could be a better place to work.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
From what I hear, Dish is a great and successful company, but Dish Mobile could use a better management, especially at the middle levels. There is no clear communication of the company's business plan, no clear strategy and path forward, not much vision to speak of, and certainly no ability to coach new employees into the great leaders and contributors that they can be. Of course, I can't blame my short tenure at Dish Mobile on these factors. I was having extremely difficult personal issues that greatly impacted my work life, and ultimately led to my departure.

Don’t walk - run away from this company

Awful management. Attendance policy needs a lot of re thinking. Company itself is dying and they’re trying everything to not believe it. Co workers were the only people that made it worth clocking in for.

Pros

Work from home

Cons

You’re stuck at the computer all day and have limited flexibility.

Company is trying to keep a dead industry alive with expectations

Very strict workplace, the potential is there if you work well in very stressful positions. Constant battle to maintain commissions. Taking a week off work affects your numbers and pay for several weeks to come, basically having to start the climb all over. Company training was very short for the amount they expect from you, as soon as your grace period is up they write you up for everything. QA on calls is as if they expect you to be a robot. If you put a customer on hold a second too long you get written up/ Points and they add up fast.

Horrible place to work at

Phonies. Bad pay, bad shifts. Management is sub par. No family life / work balance. Covid related absences count against you.Meat market. Never got vaccine differential. Constantly having to check or correct time card for accurate pay.

pay pay pay

the pay is good if you can sell and do overtime. you can clear 80-100k. its a call center job so prepare to get back in the cage wagie. it is a good job though all kidding aside. you will be expected to be on the phone most of your shift.

no clear direction/constant change

A project would start one way and without much notice it would change, the techs never knew what the processes were, and what to expect from day to day. When sales become a priority and not the job, it takes away from the ability to timely complete and have a work life balance. Many techs worked 12 to 14 hours a day. Not good for a family life.

messy

the training is a joke. they put you on the phone with little to no preparation. receiving help on a call does not help the situation as they take so long to message you anything helpful

Metrics and Sales

Job security depends on your ability to meet metrics beyond your control. Most important part of job is Sales. You can be terminated for not meeting Sales quota monthly

You are never good enough

It started out well with many praises. I even received apprentice of the month. The worst thing about this place is the micromanagement and lack of human compassion.

Tough work but training and pu were great

Loved working there but got laid off cause of COVID. Great advancement opportunities . They also sent us into Chicago for training when it was an epicenter of COVID which didn’t see wise to me, but other than that it was great.

Working at Dish

There are many positives and negatives working at Dish in which they allow you to be able to have a flexible schedule in which you can work 4 days a week for 10 hours a day or 5 days for 10 hours a day. Then they have health benefits and

Pros

Flexibility of being remote/ choose your own schedule from the options given

Cons

Little pay for the type of work being done

Read before you go!!

The good So first off the bat dish gives great benefits really good insurance and you get free TV don’t get the internet it’s horrible and if you like driving sometimes your gonna drive 25 miles other days 400 miles, another good benefit is you work by yourself the bosses check on you but most live out of town and you gotta rely on yourself so if you are well organized and honest it’s great. Now the badYou have to sell at every job at least 55$ worth of product if you can make big sale at one job say 600$ which it is possible your good for the month but be aware the bosses are real serious about it , then your hours are not set some weeks you get 40 hours others you get less then 25 the reason why is think about it how many people really have satellite tv most just have internet and just stream online so your jobs are there but be aware some cancel or there just isn’t enough to go around.The inventory can be confusing and if you don’t order enough of items your out of luck til they can be mailed and your gonna get in trouble for not keeping up.If your not ok with going up 2-4 stories or being in really tight places or be in areas we’re it gets really cold or hot I’m talking about depending we’re they send you it’s less the 40 degrees outside or outside when it’s hot and it’s 105 outside then you gotta get in an attic and it’s now 112 just be aware you gotta work you can’t say no I don’t like the weather.

Good role

Good company overall if you’re not on the phones, opportunities for advancements - eventually it became stagnant. Good to gain experience and knowledge

Terrible management

During my time there, I had an actual manager 2 months out of 9 months , no guidance, reviewed by a manager who didn't even know me, given a raise for performance and due to low yearly rating by a manager that knew nothing about me, was laid off during the pandemic...... worst management ever

It was nice. With the time it takes to lead. You end up following. No one ever knows how to be a leader until faced with adversity. Time heal all until it stops ticking and you’re now left with nothing but scaring.

Good as a first job, but don't stay too long

I learned a lot working for Dish, so it was a good first job, but it wasn't a good long term option. There were no opportunities to grow and the pay was incredibly low. Upper management doesn't trust employees and that is apparent in they way they treat people.

Pros

Many opportunities to learn

Cons

This company doesn't respect it's employees, pay is low, medical benefits aren't very good.

Great place to gain skills! But, that’s about it.

Pros- ownership on day one of projects or initiatives- depending on the team, freedom to explore new areas outside of your comfort zone - fantastic opportunity to learn new skills. Lots of very talented people who you can learn fromCons- core hours (in at 9? Your boss and the VP get an email saying you were late…)- zero work life balance. Know of people who work 60+ hours a week constantly - “startup” environment means no processes or that nobody follows them - such a rush to “do” that consequences are always overlooked and causes bigger issues later- you will get passed up for promotions. You will get more work but hey, It’s the DISH way - benefits are terrible. There’s no maternity leave and WFH is heavily frowned upon - the culture is horrible. Heavily male dominated and if you haven’t “proven” yourself, you’ll be pushed out

Offers opportunities for advancement, work from home

Overall a great place to work. Can become repetitive but there are a variety of fields and promotional opportunities available. Great for people who like routine work.

Pros

Offers flexibility, great health benefits, 401k matching

Cons

Can become robotic after awhile
