I'm not sure if its different for salary folks, but I (and all the other hourly dish employees I know) get 7 paid holidays a year (new years, easter, fourth of july, labor day, thanksgiving, black friday, and christmas), and if I work on the holiday, I get the holiday pay plus my regular pay. So, not sure where the no paid holidays part comes from, unless its salary folks.
Im a former employee so most would think my opinion of Dish would be negative but fact of the matter is they paid well, offered a ton of P4P bonuses on every single pay check, extra money for upselling packages.
Getting paid 16$ an hour(accounting for p4p) not including over time(which was also multiplied by P4P separately which is awesome), in south texas when everyone else was either being paid 9$ an hour or was making comparable wages by working in a prison was quite nice.
Seriously, as a college student walking away with a 1000$ pay check, when all your friends are struggling to make 500$ at other jobs in that same period is quite nice.
Really the only thing that was weird was not qualifying for sick days until you have worked for Dish for 2 years. But even then they offer you a crap ton of PTO (paid time off), a lot of LEPC and a lot of UPTO that you really dont need the sick days.
Really the only bad thing about working there, are your retarded co-workers who seem to think there still in high school
