Dish Network Complaint - My easter sunday with dish
The end of the dish
Well I quess I need to tell everyone what happened the other day thats made me quit doing Dish Network. Well we'll just start off with it was easter Sunday yes I was hanging dishes on easter Sunday I talked to a friend that used to work for them and he said he was hanging dishes on Christmas day so thats nothing unusual for dish. The first job was a service call the guy had replaced his roof and said that was do to the dish being mounted on it and wanted it rehung on the side of the house pretty normal job and he made the comment I can't believe your working at eight o'clock in the morning on easter Sunday. I was like yea I know I aint crazy about it either but somebodys gotta do it hung the dish and left for the next job.
My next job was for a little old lady in kingsport that lived in a apartment complex this job was a 2 room install job. When I met the lady I explained that we have to have permission from the land lord to install a dish in a apartment and she said well I don't wanna bother them (the landlord) on easter with this and really don't want you to do this today anyways I have family coming in a little while for a easter dinner I'm cooking and don't want strangers here puttin in a dish system can you kindly reschedule this for tomorrow? I told her well let me call in and see. Boy was that ever a mistake you'd thought I'd killed somebody by asking this. The next thing I know one of the asses from updish are on the phone screaming and cursing saying no it has to go in today. He was yelling in the phone so hard that the lady could hear it and was sitting there with her mouth open and her head shaking. When I got off the phone with them the little old lady informed me that after that she didn't want the dish any longer. And I told her that after that I didn't wanna call back and cancel it she completely understood and told me that she was scared to call them also and to do what I had to do and please handle the man that they were sending out to make sure I was doing it. I didn't know what to do so I just started installing a dish and vowed to myself that this would be my last install. I have never pushed a job on anybody that didn't want it before using fear tactics and that this was going to be a first and a last. Before I was done she had her whole family there staying with her till I was finished outta fear that dish would send out another man to make sure the job was getting done. When we was signing the paperwork the old lady was crying telling me how scared she was for me and I told her not to worry that this was my last dish job I would never install another and for her to remember cable is always a option and that I didn't know what is wrong with my company but the others are not like this.
So after spending all the money to get the tools to install dish and never getting a straight paycheck from them (I hear this is policy) cause they always keep some some of it for something or another I am once again job hunting. The local cable company is looking promising cause Ive always done nice clean installs and they say they like my work so I quess not all is lost. But I did my last install with dish on easter Sunday morning to a lady who didn't even want the dish after hearing the dish people scream and curse at me that there numbers were down and this is why and I had better do it with many explenatives thrown in they terrified the lady and infurated me and left her stuck with a dish.
I will starve out go homeless and anything else that has to be before I ever do anything like that again. This easter Sunday was a all time low for me and I hope I never have to go through anything like that experience again.
So now ya'll know what happened to the dish job and I'm praying that I find somewhere else to work soon
This is a explaination to my friends that I have posted on my myspace page of what happened to the dish job of my reasons for quitting well I haven't actualy quit yet I still lack turning in the paperwork for easter Sunday but I will in a day or two. I was working for Prime Home entertianment who is contracted by Updish and updish is the ones that went crazy on me and the lady for trying to reschedule this job for the next day. I invested a small fortune in tools to install dishes for these people and never received a straight paycheck it was always short for some reason or another and was always extremely stressfull. And them when I put in the dish for the lady that didn't want it cause of the way they acted I threw in the towel I'm very imbarresed for ever working this job. Dish should be band and there worse on there employees than they are on there customers. I have never in my life been though a exsperience like this and hope I never go through it again. The lady is going to place a add in the editorial section of our newpaper here in a few days telling her side of this fiasco telling her dish exsperience and I'm job hunting for a real paying job that treats there customers with respect.
