If ll the work was done already you might find yourself out of a yob.
Let's put some perceptive on this. You being from Atlanta have a much different perspective of a 300k house than us from CA. A 300k house here will be in poorville (even in today's market) and few people would even be able to afford satellite. An installer probably would not want to go through most of those neighborhoods.SebastianBlack said:I really hate it when I arrive on the "yob" for an install at a 300K+ home and there is only one line from the outside in...............:nono2:
Hooray for the AU9's
So tiny!Upstream said:Here are some $300K single-family houses in Central New Jersey.
Wait---you are an installer and actually show up??? Wow--how unusual. Rarely ever happens for me.SebastianBlack said:I really hate it when I arrive on the "yob" for an install at a 300K+ home and there is only one line from the outside in...............:nono2:

All you guys want a " trained professional installation technician"mishawaka said:i love the installers that act like they aren't expendable assets.
We dont want your sympathy.rustynails said:I'm from the south and I asked the D installer how he installed in these new houses with roofs almost vertical. He said most of the new houses were pre wired so it wasn't a problem. But still if he had to put a dish on the roof he has to install it and run wire to where it goes in the house. I don't feel sorry for these guys who chose to be installers. I'm an independent contractor in a different business with my own set of problems and it is just part of doing business.
Well said. Although I was talking about my peeve. I too treat each customers home like it was my own. I can be pissed all day but in the end the install, upgrade, service call all get completed regardless of the difficulty. We work through adversity, heat , stress and attitudes all in the days work.NYCEGUY01 said:We dont want your sympathy.
I do whatever the install requires for each location I stop at. Some are pre-wired 45 min installs and some are 5 hr nightmares. It goes with the territory. Just dont whine cause Im taking too long or because Im a little late. Or alot late for thjat matter. Do you really want me to cut corners and hurry up to get to my next appt while Im working at your house or just do that at the jobs before you ???
I treat each and every customer like they are my only job for the day while Im at thier location. The same if I were at your house or the guy who happened to have the install right before you.
Sorry Rusty , not entirely aimed at you.
exactly my point. installers are an expendable asset. if you get a bad one that shows up, tell him to get out, then keep trying to find one of the few competent ones. satellite dish installation ain't rocket science.NYCEGUY01 said:All you guys want a " trained professional installation technician"
But you only want to pay for an expendable asset.
Then you have the nerve to ***** and complain about your shoddy FREE install because you didnt want to pay any custom work charges.
In the real world this is why PIA customers always get several rescheduled work orders and fast and crappy installs.
There are some real loser techs out there but keep treating all of them with that attitude and thats all that will be left. Then who will come and fix your precious tv.
For all the other descent customers just treat the tech with a little respect when he shows up at your door and the rest will take care of itself. If you do get a loser politely ask him to leave and they will get someone better for your install.
Ok rant over.
