I'm definitely feeling those who's had problems with Directv.WORKING for this company was an absolute nightmare!

I personally went through 9 straight wks of training & once you get on the floor, its a completely different ballgame. The Team Leaders literally would tell us to forget everything we learned in training, & the Quality Assurance team were complete douchebags when they monitored calls. They definitely had their favorites, and would target certain people to get rid of them. From an insider's perspective, they deserved the "F" from the BBB!!!

To make a long story short, I got the *** out of there & now am so much happier & stress free!!!!

Beware of the Early cancel fees for the account, premium removals before 30 days, and having the protection plan for less than 1 year.I refuse to EVER work for another shady company like them again!!!

The person who wrote that statement is just mad because they think they know it all and Noone has the right to tell them what they can and can't do they are lazy and do not reflect the feelings of 99% of the fine men and women that work for directv. this person would rather complain about a job and quit and lay around and let us working folks pay for their life while they get food stamps and Medicaid

My boyfriend is working for Direct TV right now.He wants to quit but he doesn't want to be screwed on the $700 they owe him.

Well they owe him $300 for last weeks jobs (which he will be paid on Friday for) and another $700 for this weeks jobs (which he will be paid for next Friday).If he quits, will they take his money?

It's literally in your contract that if you sign up for DTV, you need a CC or debit which will stay on file for the duration of your service and WILL be debited if you leave the company with fees on your account. Read your *** contract.

I work at the directv call center in boise.The journey so far has been epically amazing.

Yes training is a little short but a lot of the information is learned on the phones. There is about 4500 pages of information and policy. A lot to learn. I go to work with the mentality of it being just like school.

Constantly learning something new everyday. The support from work peers is incredible. The only time that this is a bad experience is when you don't try something new as far as call handling as in not applying the advice that is passed along. The other aspect is when you don't have patience with yourself.

Not every job is meant for everyone or at least it may not be everyone's passion. Avoid making the call a transaction, the calls are meant to be conversations. Anyone with good interpersonal skills, interpretation, soft skills and a want to genuinely help people can do this job. This company takes care of all of its employees and it's customer data base.

I along with thousands and thousands of employees are proud to stand by att and directv alike.Enough said

I also work in ACE at the DirecTV in Boise and I second everything said above. It has been an amazing job in an insanely positive atmosphere, with support in your peers and leaders alike. We strive to make the best of every call with every customer and to provide high quality television for people across the U.S.

The only complaint I've ever had with DTV is that when I called for technical support, or any service I always got the wrong person to talk to.I had many problems in my first 2 years with them that I finally dropped them.

When I returned to DTV last week it started out good, but the promised 3 months of free premium channels never loaded into my DVR and when I called to inquire today the same old merry go round of talking to the wrong agent in the wrong department started up again! And then a miracle occurred and someone connected me to the ACE Department.

A man named Tye in the ACE Dept fixed the problem immediately, and from now on I'll ask for that department when I call DTV.
