Foxtel Contracting Installer Issues

Recommended Posts

It seems like the last thread was taken down yet again. So I have started a brand new one up.

Any sub contracting foxtel cable or satellite installers across Australia from BSA & Downer with issues post your opinions

If Telstra buys Foxtel, such a company as BSA Ltd may disappear completely from ASX.

just wait for David, he will post some more stories about how tech could make $120k doing one job a day.

That's what most Foxtel techs are getting at the moment, very very quite at the moment.

Yes. Unfortunately due to one person mainly.

Hopefully this thread will be more civil and only people currently in the industry, contributing.

Luckily, we take care of some very rural WA, so the jobs are there :)

Interesting Sidor, you no longer work in the Industry either so iv read.

And I agree, unless you want to work Friday, Saturday, Sundays there is no work.

And the Foxtel Side of it there are some dodgy practices going on at the moment.

And no one start about me being someone working in BSA management, its why the thread got deleted in the first place because people couldn't understand this

A certain issue that I think needs to be addressed is Downer techs in some states still being forced to wear PPE and still no rate rises when the job can take an extra hour in total. On top of that the whole aspect of job quality as gone off the scale with Foxtel Auditors picking up minor issues on jobs such as not attaching a foxtel sticker to a wall-plate! to techs not looping a VCR through with the request of the customer saying they don't even want it looped through! I have also been hearing that the techs in south australia are getting paid 25% less then us guys in the eastern states such as Victoria and Nsw. That if you ask me is down right appalling!

Action must be taken.

I noticed that last time the technician was out. I asked for a 6 RCA cable for the DVD-R and they dont supply anymore. When digital was first installed in 2004 this was all supplied at the time of installation

Hope no-one was hinting at me?

I just dont contract to THEM..................

Still get plenty of Satellite work done....and love it again

No, it definitely wasn't you :) More like ice-vi, lol.

Same here, I don't contract to them any more but the company I work for does.

Far, far less hassle that way !!! woohoo.

.. BSA put on a whole bunch of techs to work Sat and Sun.

what would be the reason for that ?

Downer is not going this, Silcar and ABB did not do it either.

BS. There are plenty of instances where customers have been told by the pay tv companies that their job can only be performed on a weekend even if the customer is available on another day. Since when have these companies expressed any desire to put themselves out to suit the customers needs? Get real. The customer is told theirjob will be done on a particular day and thats all there is to it.

Because they are booking Jobs on Satudays and Sundays more, because it saves people taking a day off etc to get their Foxtel installed.
Its the way the Trade industry is going.

Yes they ran the gas chambers and furnaces on weekends too.

Well, looks like this thread has gone to sh*t again with BSA's best buddy spruking away....

The thread CLEARLY states: "Foxtel Contracting Installer Issues" You are no longer an installer, so, why not stay out with your crap.
