Any employees out there who can tell me what the call center is like ? Are new hires placed on the shift that ends at 1am ? Is there really a chance for promotion and after how long do you have to work there before promoted ? Are you assigned a desk or do you share a desk with someone from another shift ? I seem to hear more bad than good about the place and not sure I am going to accept my job offer there.

I had an interview there several months ago and showed up a little early and sat in the parking lot watching employees go into work. I was shocked to see alot of employees going to work wearing those pajama bottoms. Wearing them to WalMart might be okay, but wearing them to work is just too laid back for me. I drove off but I guess Direct TV didn't care that I missed my interview, no one called to see what happened. I know that call center jobs have a little more laid back policy than other jobs, but I just can't work at a place where I am in business casual and the person sitting next to me got out of bed, put on their shoes and went to work.

I worked at directv for many years and it is a good place to work. All you have to do, is follow the companies procedures and stay out of drama. The possibility for being promoted is also high as well as shift trades if you tend to get a later shift at first. The dress code up there is casual, and pajama pants are not tolerated.

We have Directv service given to us at no cost. I must say though, even if I didn't work there I would still have Directv service.

Have those @ Direct TV ever considered joining the CWA? It would do nothing but make your workplace stronger.

Why would you expect any company to call and ask you why you didn't show up for your interview? I am sure when you when you didn't show up they automatically assumed you were not going to be a good employee.
