"Worst temp assignment I've ever taken. Miserable. Felt like a slave."
What do you like about working at DirecTV?
"Nothing. I wasted a year here in Consumer Premise Engineering to find a new job but they ultimately laid me off."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Avoid Consumer Premise Engineering, other groups aren't as bad. However keep in mind this company has major nepotism issues (you can find reviews everywhere stating this) so don't expect a warm cozy work environment, you will always be competing in unnecessary and unmotivating ways."
What don't you like about working at DirecTV?
"Bullying management. Authoritarian style, ignores you if you do well, reprimands you for not reading his mind. Management by threats, no leadership at all. Like working in a factory. Manager steals work, unclear direction, poor communicator. Upper management interviewed me and knew of the bullying but told me there was nothing they would do about it. Reported discrimination and was ignored. Very backward methods of management. Training only offered to family and friends, other employees given no training, then reprimanded for not being up to speed. Management sets up non-family and friends up for failure."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Hire manager that have management experience. Give all employees training, not just the favorites and your family."
