I just got hired as a Directv intsaller and I have to go and train for a week....i cant wait....
Congrats, I'll bet that'll be a fun job.
BTW, since you're gonna be an installer, see if you can help me with this question
So...does the lobotomy come before or after orientation?
But seriously, congrats.
You will find out it's not an easy job.
Home runs are a pain.
Line of sight is a pain.
Brick and stone are a pain.
Home runs under a floor Big pain.
Good Luck !!
It must be VERY COLD in North Dakota climbing those roofs.
It'll sure be a challenge, but rewarding! Only have one word/recommendation:
See DBSForums Grounding TechTalk
Hi Everybody,i'm 20 And Want To Start My Carrier With Comcast Or Directv Installer. I Did Call To Directv ,they Tell Me To Became A Contractor I Should Had Certification Or Experience! Could Anybody Tell Me How I Can Get This Experience Or Certification ,thanks For Understanding.
Call all the local install companies and apply as a helper. Watch everything and learn and you are on your way.
Stay in school. Learn to spell.
Reading are good to.
Have fun doing the installs! I'd recommend you read around here to see what mistakes are made by other installers and avoid them.
Also might help to know a bit about the technology you are installing. The last 2 installers I have had experience with did not know much except how to do the install and call to activate.
Throw away your wristwatch. Installers do not have any need to know what time of day it is.
Not true at all. If they have no idea what time it is, than statistically they would have to be on time (by accident) a certain percentage of the time. To achieve their perfect off-time record, they have to have a very keen awareness of what time it is.
This is called apprenticeship, and has a long standing history.
urnote. you still an installer?
his last activity was 09-07-2006, I doubt he will see this question.
...and he's probably too busy pooping!!
yeah i am still an installer, not for premier though...we are all out of jobs...hahah
so give us some good stories.
Like working 8 hours to complete a job you get paid 50 bucks for and having a customer yelling at you.
and are you aware of the tuner 2 problem on the hr20 with the 110 (which will be moot soon anyway)
Actually, it would be cool to hear some stories....Like crazy people you havbe met out there installing DTV at their houses, the way some people live, etc...
Give us some of your best...top 5...
