Blaming DTV employees

I hope that no one is blaming DTV employees for the ruinous result of AT&T purchasing DTV. That AT&T over paid is completely on RS. That DTV is losing customers faster than they were before the sale is completely on AT&T executive decisions to bungle... read more

Customers are NOT important

I find that working for DirecTV is such a challenging and often NOT very rewarding job. I feel sorry for the long time customers who have given their loyalty to us. Tech Support is supposed to be there to assist with their needs especially when we... read more

Confusing Offerings

Ever since at&t took over DirecTV.....

Customer service at an all time low. Being lied too about pricing, their union employees don't want to do the work and are doing poor installations. Contractors are held to a high standard and are out performing in house installers. I've worked for... read more

Blind promoting the blind

We have some really inept leadership at DirecTV. There are a few who are constantly making terrible decisions and who keep promoting employees who couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag. This isn’t a popularity contest for crying out loud... read more

Confirmed layoffs February 2018

Heard of massive cuts in california including Long Beach and el segundo in February 2018. No one will be spared and no amount of company loyalty will matter . Rumors of upto 33% cuts in workforce as a result of trickle down At&t takeover cuts

700 laid off, lots more to come

As it seems, AT&T is made of lies. Nothing new there. 700 people were just laid off from DirecTV, with more to come. So much for promises of new jobs... Timing is awful as well, two weeks before Christmas. Do these people have no soul? If you are... read more

Working at DIRECTV

DIRECTV was a great place to work, integrity was number one as well employee satisfaction. Since ATT took over we have seen a need for unions, cuts in benefits and overall pay crappy shifts, layoffs and putting up with ATT flipping accounts for a... read more

California Broadcast Center in Long Beach, CA

Layoffs are decimating the California Broadcast Center in Long Beach, CA. Our inept, ignorant, headhunter manager has brought in 20 years old inexperienced kids that we more experienced broadcast engineers have been forced to train. It's taking 3 of... read more

Rumor about end of year surplus

I heard there will be a huge surplus in LA before the holidays seasons. Mostly in engineering and ops. I am surprised it took this long for AT&T to decide after failing to integrate DTV. Well, this failure does not surprise me, however, when AT&T... read more
