Skytv Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Skytv is a South Korean satellite television network.
K. Benyon shared his experience, "Don't get Skytv they'll give you a good deaI then they'll start taking more money off you, they'll put your bill up without your knowledge. I started a new 18 months contract with Sky in January this year which was agreed as £46 a month for the package. Didn't check my bills until today the 24th August and realised that they increased my bill to £62.20 from June without my knowledge. I then called to complain and asked why they did that and they said somehow my contract of £46 disappeared from the system and that was the new price I had to pay. After a long battle I get them to agree to a £50.20. That's shocking and immoral from sky, if you want to get out of their contract before the end you have to pay a big fine for that but they can break the agreement without any problem. Stay away even if you think you're getting a great deal."
Sky Engineer (Former Employee) says"I joined Sky through the women in home service programme they were running in January this year. Cons: Long hours, under appreciated, management are bullies"
Engineer (Former Employee) says"Cowards afraid to stand up to criticism and giving 20 jobs a day expecting you to finish at 11 every night then ring customers at that time to arrange a time for the following day. A joke"
Engineer (Former Employee) says"Not a nice place to work, stressful, bullying culture from managers, no time for breaks/ lunch. Sell sell sell environment. Everyone is living in fear of being sacked at any time. Cons: everybody is always on disciplinarys, so they dont have to pay bonuses"
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) says"Dont go for a job here worst company EVER they offer you all the best and never come up with the goods they promise you set shifts they dont they promise so much and never do it"
Customer service/sales (Current Employee) says"Poor management and the consistent belittling of people. There is also a lack of some basic human rights by micromanaging people and their break times and duration."
Field Engineer (Former Employee) says"13 yrs as an engineer, was a good job at first but not any more no family or personal life, backstabbing from work colleagues, managers like to bully if you don’t do as they say. If you speak back to them then that’s your cards marked. Don’t get injured as you not get pains if off sick. Managers are crooks selling stock and them sacking engineers making out its them doing it. Also if you’re into drugs then you’re ok as no drug testing and most managers will happy sell you cocaine and other drugs. Stay well away."
Specialist / Buisness Engineer (Former Employee) says"Left a year ago disgusting management."
Engineer (Current Employee) says"Installing Sky from dish to cable to box. Management is aware of the bullies but hopes by ignoring the situation it will go away. The teams are aggressively dominated, closely monitored and run by the specialist engineers behind the scenes with over inflated egos and rife with gossip ready to tear down. Some team members suck up to them by feeding them information in private group chats hoping to earn a right of passage but to no avail. There are cliques throughout. So much back stabbing it's unreal. It was like a prison inmate mentality where you're there to protect yourself rather than earn a living. You cannot be yourself. No proper training. Bonus structure is a lie. Women not paid the same as men. Very undervalued and underpaid for the job you do with no work life balance working 10 hours or more a day in all weathers. It's the old adage with this company, if it seems too good to be true it usually is. Cons: Long hours, underpaid, working in extreme weathers, bullying."
Engineer (Former Employee) says"I worked as a Sky 'Engineer' in the south wales region and never before have I had a job where the management actively seek your dismissal. I know there are other regions where management treat you like an adult, but not the east region. I was unfortunate to have a manager who had free rein to use you as a play thing to entertain himself and put as much stress and pressure on you your family as he could. Cons: No life and managers lie like a cheap watch"
(Osterly) says"I was a sales advisor for almost one year at Sky."
Engineer (Former Employee) says"Engineers in your team are great. But line managers and regional managers are a nightmare. Engineers are leaving quicker than they can be recruited. Cons: Management, hours, work life balance, salary, expectations, sales, constantly tracked"
Customer Service Technician (Former Employee) says"Absolute horrible place to work, everything is target driven and micro-managed. Take your break a minute early then you get called in. Worst place I’ve ever worked in, would not recommend this god forsaken place to anybody. Management are so trigger happy, started with 17 people, when I left there was 4 left. Not a reliable place to work and the management are not understanding at all. Regarding sick leave, you will be called in for a warning regardless of the illness, even if you had a heart attack at work they could not careless. Thank god I was only there for a short while, if anybody sees sky hiring I highly advice to avoid at all costs, turn away and never look back. Many better places out there. Cons: Everything"
Field sale agent (Former Employee) says"Sky is a company that isn't hugely professional in how it treats its sales agents. They make little effort to enforce their own standards. Their training isn't very good and the remuneration isn't competitive."
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) says"Firstly the job title should NOT be "customer service adviser" it would be "sales adivser". Cons: Everything above"
Customer retention advisor (Former Employee) says"Mangers were to worried about you meeting your targets and in my opinion than the staff or customers and they passed the blame to other departments would never take a call over if customer wanted to speak to a manager. Cons: poor managment"
Area 5 - Sky Retailer Sales Asst (Former Employee) says"This was my first sales job and I was sent away, fully paid for by the company, for a weeks training. Upon return, I began the job and hated it instantly. My role was to stand in a shopping mall, hounding shoppers to buy my companys brand of cable tv. I would spend every minute on my feet, there was nothing but a stand with leaflets and a tv on, no staff room, no facilities, nowhere to have lunch nothing. and if you work there alone, you get no lunch break at all. While working there it became very clear that the targets were unrealistic, so much so, other employees would falsify new customers just to make target. I hit target one 3 days only, over the course of my 6 week employment with this company. In addition, two male employees who had worked for the company for quite sometime, were favoritised by management and were often found unpunished for leaving their stand unattended for great periods of time, one of them even went and sat in his car to watch a football match while i was left manning the stand alone. Cons: everything"
Postroom assistant. (Former Employee) says"I had the terrible misfortune of working as a temp here in the post room and I must say it was the WORST place I had EVER worked in London! Cons: Leaving home to go there."
call center (Former Employee) says"Ti trattano come se fossi uno schiavo con salari molto bassi rispetto alle ore di lavoro, cercare di manipolare le persone pur di starppare un contratto Cons: tutto"
Call Center Attendant (Former Employee) says"I have worked in hospital, in the area of chemical disinfection of materials, where I obtained the knowledge and related techniques."
Installation and Service Engineer (Former Employee) says"In the years I worked there the process has always been the same if you shut your mouth, do the work and work all the hours that they want you too. You will then be left alone. If not management will remove you with H&S violation or whatever they can fabricate to get rid of you. Cons: Long hours, poor management, treatment of staff terrible."
Rocka says"Sky are scum it is as simple as that. The "product" is overpriced to begin with and then they have the cheek to show you adverts on top - at every opportunity - on content you have already paid for. The DRM and the ads are constantly breaking the experience on SkyGo so they are determined to show you ads even if it breaks the content. On top of that they repeat the same rubbish for years on end and there is hardly ever any good content added. I just don't understand why anyone is still paying for it, you can get better content a lot cheaper these days without ads and without their woke virtue being rammed down your neck either."
michael reynolds says"appalling company, uncontactable , using covid as no other business i know, should not be receiving a penny for furlough"
Saliya Shaikh says"Its been 2 months our news channels ABP News and News18 were taken off by Skytv without notice.My husband complained twice over the phone only to hear its broadcasters issues.Theyre so unprofessional to cutoff our channels without notice and valid reason.We pay for it and skytv blames broadcasters.Recently we rang them to check why issue is not been resolved yet but they have stopped talking to customers over phone except vulnerable people.Moreover the number cuts off without even giving any options. Its a ripp off our money.Wont renew my account with them."
Gareth Davies says"The only reason I originally signed up for sky was they were the big providers of content with a decent deal for broadband and phone. This was twenty years ago. Halfway through they totally messed up a house move resulting in no Internet for a month. I'm no addict so we coped far better than others would. Fast forward to now. They are now not the only providers of content or a great deal for broadband. They should be competitive you think. Hell no. They now charge me three times the amount for the same level of content I was receiving 20 years ago. That is some inflation. I'm done I say to the I want to quit salesman. The offers start. I say there is no offer you can give me unless you give me 4k content. We can do that but you have to pay for a box that we want back when you quit next time. Eventually offers me a "free" box which I will have to return so not "free" as I will never own it with the bundle I want but for ten pounds more a month than I really wanted but hey it has 4k so I can go with that. I then notice in t&cs that 4k is not available unless you have multiroom. I query this and lo and behold he declares he is not aware of this and his colleague just pointed this out. I am not paying for multi room when I don't want it and its just more money for something that should be pretty much standard now. What a massive con!!!!! Sky is not for you if you are after a good deal. It is for those people who just want to waste their money on rubbish that is overpriced. They are not competitive they are out of touch. HD should be the bare minimum and 4k should be a standard upgrade not a rip off mega premium."
