Dish Network has one of the biggest turn over rate! It's administration does not care about the employees, no matter how loyal and hardworking they are!!

It's nice to know. Those of us who don't live within 200 miles of Christiansburg/Blacksburg find it difficult to keep up with the local news.

How classy Dish. Sure fire 30 people who are responsible for getting a class action lawsuit going against the company for not paying overtime. Business as usual at dish network/echostar is treating employees badly and quickly stamping out anyone who steps out of line.

The people that were fired were consistently not performing up to standards. If they were there 8 years, then they probably were performing badly for 8 years, or had poor attendance, or something... As far as the lawsuit goes, that is ridiculous as well. People really look for easy ways to get money, without doing work. The old expectation was to have your computer applications up in time for the start of your shift. This takes approximately 2 minutes. Dish Network pays its employees very well. The job is not that hard to do either. Sure, some of the standards are a little tough to meet, but that is why they pay people like they do. Not everyone can do the job, and not everyone likes the job. But that is why it is called work.

I know for a fact that there are several great people that worked there that were let go, did their jobs day in and day out. There were also some that couldn't even bring their sorry asses in enough to stay in compliance with the most insanely relaxed attendance policy i've ever heard of. Some people probably just wanted the better pay and as few hours as possible to keep that assistance coming in, some people are just lazy as hell or have their parents to fall back on. Point is what goes around comes around. If you are a good worker, you deserve better and you will find something. If you are a lazy ass, you can go back and continue to mooch off of anyone who will let you. Some sorry asses probably will get unemployment.

Dish is a sweatshop. Unpaid o.t.... Some are trying to start a union there cause Dish abuses the employees. One manager in NJ particularly is a dousche bag. An ex-cop Seth.. He sucked on the phones and peter-principled his way up... He got off on thinking he was better than everyone else.
