  • I saw this stupid logo and thought maybe the headline was going to be that this company finally held their new years day celebration and entered 2016 with the rest of us, by pushing out the Marshmallow update to the Note 4.
  • I'm laughing out loud AT&T Galaxy S7 Onyx Black with Unlimited Data
  • No that's 4 more months away, at least
  • I work for atnt as a senior DirecTV tech. This corporation makes is obviously a financial monster but unfortunately they're also cheap to an extent. After acquiring DirecTV us techs went from making upwards of 80-100 k annually doing piece work to maxing out at $26 hourly. It's a shame but theyre so powerful no union or organization within has much leverage or power to effectively negotiate for higher wages. Great company to work for depending in what you do but they aggressively cut costs as they please at the expense of many of their employees. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The DirecTv installer that put my Dish up a couple weeks ago said they are doing twice as many installs per day as compared to what they had to do when installing U-Verse tv. Posted via the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

  • Its the Costco deal ... Kenny
  • Wow, I didn't know some of you guys used to make as much as a CST makes. I take it you're now a Prem Tech? So many changes going on structurally within the company I'm not sure it'll be that great a company to work for in the next few years as it has been up until now.

  • We were making a ton of money but we were also slamming as many jobs as possible to get paid more. It's more chill now. They haven't fully integrated DirecTV into the company yet so I'm not currently a prem tech. Also theyre essentially cutting costs with DirecTV techs to take advantage of us not currently having a union contract. That's coming soon though. But yeah, DirecTV was one hell of a company to work for as a tech. Posted via the Android Central App
