It’s A Tough Job… by Michael Landry, Memphis Market

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

On Jan. 20th, 2012, I experienced a really tough job. It was a five box install, one HD DVR and four standard IRDs. Upon arriving at the customer’s house I greeted the customer and went inside to see where all the receivers were going. The customer then began to show me where the receivers were going. Upon the walk-through, the customer showed me that she had two separate attics and two separate crawl spaces. I then went outside to begin my site survey. The dish was going to have to be placed on the right side of the house while the ground source was on the left side of the house. I then began to run my lines from one side of the house to the other through the two separate crawl spaces. Then after getting the wire to the other side of the house and attaching it to my ground block, I then ran my wire into one of the attics. I put my switch in the first attic and dropped my wires into the rooms, then I had to find a way into the other attic. I searched and finally found a small hole that ran into the other attic. I pushed my wires through, grabbed the wires, and dropped them down to the final rooms. Finally I got my receivers activated and got the job done. It took me around five hours to finish the job, but I got the job done and the customer was happy which made the job well worth it.

It’s A Tough Job… by Jason Jones / Jason Smith

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Hello,

My name is Jason Jones. I am the service supervisor in Memphis, TN and I wanted to submit a “Tough Job” story. On 10/22/11, I had a service technician (Jason Smith) who went to his 8-12 appointment in Halls, TN. Upon arriving to his job, he noticed that three small children came running out of the home stating that the house was on fire. Their next comment was that their grandparents were in there and their grandfather could not walk and was confined to a wheel chair. Without hesitating, Jason ran to the house and upon entering it it was engulfed in smoke which was rolling out of the kitchen. He proceeded down the hall past the kitchen to where he found their grandfather. He picked him up and placed him in his wheelchair which was motorized. Jason then noticed that due to the gentleman’s illness he was unable to operate his wheelchair on his own. So Jason then proceeded to pull both the grandfather and his wheelchair down the hall. By this time the flames had kicked up and were rolling out of the kitchen and right into the hallway where they had to pass. Jason said it was now or never, so he kept pulling and got them past the flames and out of the house. When he got him outside and safe he asked the kids where their grandmother was and they stated still in the house. So Jason then re-entered the home for a second time and upon calling for the grandmother he heard her toward the back of the home. When he reached her he realized she had trouble walking, so he grabbed her and helped get her out of the home.

All three grandkids and their grandparents survived. Everybody including Jason was suffering from smoke inhalation. Jason called me stating he had an emergency and wanted me to know why he may be running a little behind (always like Jason to call and keep me up to date if he is going to be late somewhere), I informed him that he need not worry about being late and let’s just make sure he was okay. I told him that what he did that day made him a hero and his response was “No sir, as a human being this is just what we do, I was just doing my job.”

Had Jason not had that appointment and arrived when he did, there may have been three kids who lost their grandparents that day. I just wanted to submit this for the Tough Job story because I felt like we have really good guys that work for our company, and this is proof. And while most days this job is a piece of cake, you will at times run into these situations which really does make this a Tough Job!!!!
