You Know It’s A Tough Job… by Darcey Leu

Friday, September 28th, 2012

The Miami market has an aggressive growth strategy – over the past 2 months, we have increased our tech capacity by 40% which has resulted in some issues in inventory issuances and the amount of parking spaces available.

The Cable industry runs differently than that of the HSP world – here we issue out equipment on a daily basis to each technician (currently 163 techs); and due to our current inventory and routing constraints, we are unable to pre-pull gear. This means that, as our tech numbers have grown, our wait times in the warehouse have increased significantly for our technicians.

As a result, our Inventory Manager, Jon Delano, and his crew have been working 3rd shifts in order to pre-pull gear and make the process more efficient for our technicians.

Aside from long hours, our technicians seem a lot happier due to the decrease in wait times. Though this is only a temporary fix until we find a facility better suited to our growing tech force, I wanted to take the time to share this “Tough Job” story with everyone to show some appreciation to Miami’s Warehouse Staff – We appreciate everything you do!

Great Job – Domekin Francis

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Nominated: 09/18/2012  Portland

Earlier today Mr. Francis was sent to repair my DIRECTV service. He spent a great deal of time, energy and patience in determining what the problem is with my PPV ordering service. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the diligence he took to find the problem and the respect he took to explain all the issues going on and what can be done to rectify them. I also was very impressed with the respect he took entering and leaving my home several times throughout his time here, making sure he used booties each time. He also was very conscientious to initially show his ID upon arrival, lending a great deal to safety in these strange times. While service calls can be very annoying, I cannot say how nice and refreshing it was to receive such great service when the situation was very frustrating. Please congratulate him on the personal pride he takes in his work, and in the positive image he presents for your company. Such customer service certainly deserves recognition.

Great Job – Timothy Beeney

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Nominated: 08/31/2012  Bloomington

Dear Stephen,

Hello. My fiancé and I, Phillip, have been DIRECTV customers for about a year and a half. Lately, we’ve been having a no signal problem. Well your employee, Tim Beeney, came in and went above and beyond what we asked for. We were seriously thinking about going back to Comcast, and he totally diverted us from that. We are especially grateful for his service and want him to be accommodated properly. We tried to buy him dinner for his service, but he graciously declined as he had another job to go to after us. Again, we appreciate everything he did for us!

Sincerely, Kristina
