Spoke with someone from their HR, she told me first year install techs average from 35 to 50K.....HUH?! That's a big gap there. And she claimed she knew of someone who made over 75k last year. I asked if there was any hard numbers broken down by region, she said that information is basically non existent. Don't know where they get those numbers from? Installers aren't paid hourly, but by each job. She couldn't tell me how each job breaks down because she said she didn't know. I'd be working directly working for DTV. I'm interested, but would like to hear from anybody in the know. Thanks in advance.
