Sky Sports is a group of British subscription television sports channels operated by the satellite pay-TV company Sky, a division of Comcast. Sky Sports is the dominant subscription television sports brand in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Tip mentioned, "The absolute worst service on this planet. If they were not more or less a monopoly in my area, I'd move mountains just to find another service in hope for something more reliable. We are paying for a premium internet plan but for at least the last couple years our service has been extremely unreliable (on and off dropping of connection) and when connected, speeds are unacceptable, below advertised speeds. Though, Comcast may deny it, at this point I swear they are throttling our connection and causing intentional disconnects. If not, our neighborhood lines are in need of serious updates but as many times we make Comcast aware, they do nothing."

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."

Mr Anthony Johnson says

"Sky sports are becoming a joke,they are so transparent in there BLM rubbish.we are meant to be enjoying sports and not listening to your views on world politics,the F1 channel might as well become the Lewis hamilton views show,,he is a militant and I dont see him support his own country when a black man murders a white man and injures severel more and yet no response from BLM.he would rather get involved with other countries,,I'm sure I'm not alone in leaving sky,last 6 months been a joke,,,keep hiring black pundits and using black advertisements,,,,ALL LIVES MATTER"

Danny Ocean says

"Sky sports is the only, I repeat only, streaming service I watch that constantly buffers freezes goes out of sync! Why with all their billions and technology, why can they not make a decent streaming platform? Absolute waste of time!"

christopher says

"25 years I've been a subscriber & its has gone down the pan completely now.Same as everyone else on here,obsessed with far left indoctrine,BLM,a violent maxist group who dont care about black people,just want to bring down the west.The co founder made anti semitic posts on Twitter & are racist towards white people.Sacked Le Tissier,Thompson & Nicholas for what I can see,being white.They were the only reason soccer Saturday was worth watching.Why are women commentating on mens football?Last time I looked,they have their own.Complete & utter virtue signalling mess.Well,as the saying goes,get woke,go broke ?"

NICHOLAS LEAPMAN says

"Avoid at all costs. Complete waste of money and totally obsessed with black lives matter."
