Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 August 2016
decent salary,provided with company truck,operators I worked with were a great bunch that I miss.Company was to profit driven and work load given to operators and zone supervisors was unmanageable and stressful.Upper management did not back up operators or supervisors when thing went wrong, there only concern, was what would be the risk to company profits. They were quick to throw a lot of operators under the bus instead of backing them up and as a result had a high turn over rate and lost a great deal of really talented people.
Company truck, decent salrary home every night
high turn over rate, short staffed and over worked, no back up from management
very little internal training or career opportunities
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Canada – 22 October 2015
I wouldn't recommend this company to those who cares about their career development. There is very little internal training or career opportunities. Company is simply not profitable enough to care about their employees.
flexible work locations
sr. management team cares very little about the team
TECHNICIAN ANALYST (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat – 15 October 2015
Many computer and people skills. Unfortunately after the contract ends, they move to a new city. The do however offer to take any people that do well to take them to the next contract. Hard for family life. They do really well pretty much in all aspects to their individual jobs.
Field Technician (Meter Installer) (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 11 June 2014
The contract I was under only lasted a little under 2 years but the supervisors that were chosen for the job were the best I have been around. Corix is a nice company to work for if you can keep working for them it is a bonus.
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 5 December 2013
This is a fast paced environment but we make a point of adding humour to lighten things up. Our area is mostly self managed with little interaction with the Supervisor or Manager. As we were not limited to the length of our calls we were much more likely to please the customer and resolve their issue on the 1st call. As the customer base was much smaller than what I was used to in Edmonton we were able to build relationships with our customers and they would often ask for us by name. My Co-workers were helpful, supportive and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the workload especially during the Fortis BC labour dispute as our call volume increased dramatically as did our e-mails, regular mail and faxes. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you can take an angry or upset customer and completely turn the situation around. These customers become your customer and will then prefer to speak to you directly. As we have lost The Fortis BC contract and The City of Kelowna has reduced their billing to bi-monthly billing our workload will decrease dramatically which has resulted in my layoff.
Weekly breakfast, small bonuses, some flexibility with hours
Low wages, no merit based increases, limited advancement
Regional Administrative Assistant- Corix Utilities (Current Employee) – Prince George, BC – 5 June 2013
Working under the managment here at Corix has been an eye opener and valuable life lesson. I have learned how to properly manage a team without strife or mayhem. Working with a group of people and dealing with their various needs and complaints has been something I will never forget. I have learned by fire how to properly organize, back-up, and save every piece of information necessary to the job. Payroll, deployement and First Nations Initiatives have been a learning curve that i'm happy to say went smoothly and quickly thanks to the team i was surrounded by. All in all, an amazing experience.
lunches, birthday cake, relationships.
crazy amount of things thrown on my desk all at once :)
Specialized Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 May 2012
The company is not properly set up here in Calgary, it has an inexperienced management team however it makes up with great co-workers, company vehicle with gas card and of course free work apparel (jackets). The pay scale is above average to start depending on position however there are no wage increases as promised in the initial interview. I give this company a 2 out of 5 stars because of how disappointing the management is set up, they make a lot of promises that can't be met in the end.
company vehicle and gas card
inexperienced management, no advancement, contract work, no overtime
