Good Luck Having a Life
Technician (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON16 September 2013
You will have no weekends off for the first 3-4 years of employment. You will work overtime without a choice. You will have a standoffish relationship with management. You will work til 9 every night, even the ones when you work at 8 the next morning. You will have absolutely no opportunities for advancement but in all fairness you will get a raise every 6 months til you inevitably quit or lose the will to live and get fired. Co-workers are good people for the most part, but they seem to get increasingly bitter as their years of experience grind their souls day-by-increasingly-dreary-day.
Pros
Paid training
Cons
Long hours, no weekends, goes nowhere

Telephone Technician (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON23 November 2017
Once your day starts it does not stop. It is a busy, challenging career. You never stop learning. You must be able to think outside the box at times. although you have a team to fall back on, for the most part you work independently. Your have a different work place every job . Which brings me to the hardest part. You must navigate/drive to your place of work. Several times a day, every day. The three hardest part of the job are driving/traffic, climbing and working in the elements/cold. You cannot work properly wearing gloves.
The most enjoyable part of the job. It never gets boring. You meet and work with interesting people. At the end of the day you feel you have accomplished something.
Pros
Clothing, tools included and paid training.
Cons
No pension, no jobs for aging outside tech.
