Wanted: Local Dish Network office in Eastern NC
A few months ago I made a stupid mistake and quit my job as a technician for DirecTV. I thought I had a home business brewed up but after a few months I'm realizing I'm not making the money that I was. Problem is I can't go back to the company because I just woke up one day with a bunch of orders faxed in, freaked out, called my soup and told them to come get the van. A couple of weeks later business is slow. I miss installing but was told that I could not go back no matter how good of a tech I was because company policy says you must give two weeks notice in order to come back. I cannot become a sub contractor because I only own a car. I've been trying to research dish network and have been unsuccessful in finding a local office. Both companies allow you to apply "online" but from my experience this is the worst way to get hired on. I remember applying online to both companies before I landed the job with DirecTV and never got a response. I was driving down some of the local roads one day and saw a fleet of DirecTV vans parked outside a local office and decided to stop and ask if they were hiring. A couple of days later I was in training. DirecTV contracts their installs out and I was working for the home service provider. Not sure if this is true with Dish Network. I've seen a few Dish Network vans driving around but it would be absolutely insane to try to flag them down to ask where a local office is. Seems I can't catch a tech on site anywhere.
Does anyone work or know how to get numbers or addresses for the local offices for Dish Network in the Eastern NC area. The company DirecTV hires as the HSP has a total of 4 offices within a 60 mile radius but if you didn't know someone that worked for the company or live close by you wouldn't have a clue. The internet has been useless in tracking this information down. I have applied online but as I said before it seemed a lot easier to just walk into an office and speak face to face. I know installers are always needed for both companies. If anyone could be of assistance it would be greatly appreciated. I was a tech for 1.5 years and although I had a lot of "bad" days, I miss the work and would very much like to get back into it.

Also, does anyone know if they allow the techs to drive the vans home?
