Fact: Yes, Dish is getting sued by employees for not getting paid overtime for the last three years!!

Fact: Lost TIVO lawsuit and $200 million for stealing the DVR technology!!

Fact: In financial turmoil due to the items listed above. Have also heard they will be closing soon.

Fact: Do pay $9 and up - only way to keep people there. Then threaten to fire you everytime that you do not keep their commandments.

Fact: Fired over 100 people this year alone.

Fact: Has good and bad employees, good and bad management but that is everywhere!!

Fact Morale is terrible!! Good place to work if you don't mind for the company to come up with new ways to make you and the customer unhappy!!

Fact: Turnover rate is out of this world!!

Fact: Always hiring because they are always firing!!

Fact: Drug tests are done before employment and rarely after unless they suppect you of using. Alot of the employees can be found in the police blotters. But there are also alot of good people there as well!!

Fact: Keeps changing names of programming and other things so that you will not get a good score or bonus!

Fact: On websites they claim can make up to $70,000 first year - not so.

Fact: Tripled their fees on equipment so could say they did not have a price increase this year (customers are NOT that ignorant).

Fact: In WV they CAN fire without cause and get away with it. They usually fire abundantley every spring. They can even stop you from getting unemployment without proof that you did nothing wrong.

Fact: They fire so many so that they do not have to pay more and then hire more at less an hour. This is VERY typical of DISH.

The law firms of Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP and Herrold Herrold & Co. have filed a collective action lawsuit on behalf of customer service representatives and other telephone dedicated employees for unpaid wages and overtime worked at call centers operated by Echosphere, LLC ("Echosphere") and Dish Network, L.L.C., f/k/a Echostar Satellite, L.L.C.("Dish Network"). The lawsuit alleges that Echosphere and Dish Network have consistently violated federal wage and hour laws by failing to pay employees all earned wages and overtime and failing to accurately record all time worked pre-shift and post-shift. Examples of the alleged unlawful practices include requiring employees to work "off the clock" by not paying for pre-shift work such as logging into computer applications. The workers seek collective action status.
If you have worked at any Echosphere or Dish Network call center as a customer service representative or in a similar role, you may be eligible to join the suit against the companies. We are aware of call centers in: El Paso, Texas; McKeesport, Pennsylvania; Christiansburg, Virginia; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Pine Brook, New Jersey; Alvin, Texas; Thornton, Colorado; Harlingen, Texas; Bluefield, West Virginia; and Hilliard, Ohio. There may be other call centers as well.

FCC Actions Affecting our Licenses and Applications:"

"A number of our other applications have been denied or dismissed without prejudice by the FCC, or remain pending. We cannot be sure that the FCC will grant any of our outstanding applications, or that the authorizations, if granted, will not be subject to onerous conditions. Moreover, the cost of building, launching and insuring a satellite can be as much as $300 million or more, and we cannot be sure that we will be able to construct and launch all of the satellites for which we have requested authorizations. The FCC has also imposed a bond requirement for up to $3 million for each of our fixed satellite services satellite licenses, all or part of which would be forfeited by a licensee that does not meet its diligence milestones for a particular satellite."

"We currently have no commercial insurance coverage on the satellites we own and could face significant impairment charges if one of our satellites fails. Generally, we do not carry launch or in-orbit insurance on the satellites we use. We currently do not carry in-orbit insurance on any of our satellites and do not use commercial insurance to mitigate the potential financial impact of launch or in-orbit failures because we believe that the cost of insurance premiums is uneconomical relative to the risk of such failures. If one or more of our in-orbit satellites fail, we could be required to record significant impairment charges. We may have potential conflicts of interest with EchoStar due to our common ownership and management. Questions relating to conflicts of interest may arise between EchoStar and us in a number of areas relating to our past and ongoing relationships. Areas in which conflicts of interest between EchoStar and us could arise."

Dish Network call center fires 30 just before Christmas
Colorado-based satellite TV provider still employs nearly 900 in Christiansburg.
By Duncan Adams
The sprawling Dish Network customer service call center in Christiansburg fired 30 employees last week. Company spokeswoman Francie Bauer emphasized that the job cuts came in the normal course of hiring and firing and were not layoffs.

“We have to make decisions sometimes that are in the best interests of the company,” she said.“We’re always looking at streamlining operations.”

She estimated the center still employs nearly 900 people.

“It’s always a difficult decision,” Bauer said.“But it’s business as usual.”

Bauer acknowledged hearing that some of the affected workers have reacted angrily, especially given the holiday season timing of the firings.

“Admittedly, it’s a tough time,” she said.

Dish Network Corp., a publicly traded satellite TV provider, is based in Englewood, Colo.

On Dec. 10, the company announced it had passed 14 million customers.

On Nov. 9, Dish Network released third quarter 2009 results and reported that total revenues had dropped when compared to the same period in 2008.

Dish Coach - Rick Gibson
Dish Trainer - Marlene Gibson


Attorney General Darrell McGraw filed suit today against Richard "Rick" Gibson and Glenda Marlene Gibson, doing business as Air Doc Services, for refusing to complete contracted work and then refusing to refund consumer’s deposits, among other deceptive business activities. Attorney General McGraw’s Consumer Protection Office seeks a preliminary order from the Mercer County Circuit Court to shut down Air Doc because of numerous violations.

Air Doc is a heating and air conditioning company that contracted with consumers to supply and install heating and air conditioning systems in Mercer and surrounding counties. The Attorney General’s Office received several complaints that Air Doc would cash consumers deposits but not supply the heating and cooling equipment or provide the work required by the contract. Customers that contacted Air Doc discovered that Rick and Marlene Gibson would provide numerous excuses on why their systems were not installed. Other consumers complained that Air Doc simply quit answering the phone and did not return messages inquiring about their systems. Consumers didn’t get their cash deposits back even though Air Doc never did the work.

"Our office will continue to take action against contractors preying on West Virginia consumers," said Attorney General McGraw. "Because Air Doc and the Gibsons made numerous misrepresentations, consumers willingly gave them hard-earned money even though Air Doc had no intention of installing the heating and cooling systems."

The lawsuit, filed in Mercer County, seeks injunctive relief, restitution for those affected, civil penalties, costs, and attorneys’ fees.
