Great Company but every department has its Pros and Cons
National Business Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 20 March 2018
Worked at Shaw for 15 years. Started in Residential found the hours all over the place so hard to have a life outside of Shaw the pay was good. I moved over to the Business Team and loved the hours had more time to plan and be with my family but way more stressful. It is hard to go on holidays and not think about work. You have quotas and you must meet them even when you are on vacation. This was the only thing I didn't like. Shaw is a very good company to work for. I recommend them for sure to anyone who wants to work here. Every department has its pros and cons so depending on you and your lifestyle, it will depend on what department you want to work in. Sales is always more stress but you make the most money.

This place is an excellent place to help grow a potential career and even make some decent money, their benefits are fantastic. Their management makes some interesting decisions that dont always benefit the employees
Technical Sale reprsentative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 March 2018
Work would start as early as 07:00 and could end at 00:00 (midnight) my duties were primarily with technical support for Television, Internet, home phone service and lastly with Gateway television system.
Workplace culture was very supportive among my co-workers and support staff and supervisors. A supervisor or support member was always available to talk to if I had any problems or questions related to the job or even personal problems which might impact my performance.
National Lead - Operations Training (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 March 2018
Through my time at Shaw, I have found that they are truly a company that cares about the well being of their employees. This is apparent from the on boarding, the training provided, leader support, and an incredible sense of work/life balance.
Wireless Consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 March 2018
Everything about this company gives you a great feeling walking into work every day. Except for one thing. Your job security. I understand the structure of the company that it may go under operational changes but it's been far to many over the last 5 years.
Hypocrites managers Too many lies at the recruitment and dishonest supervisors. Very specific environment some bosses, supervisors and HR advisor in Montreal location are all from the same community a lot of favoritism. Shawdirect give away lots of money to the charities to get credit from gouvernement but using very old and cheap system inside house because it cost nothing as themselves claimed about it. Most managers misleading. I have never seen such a unprofessional environment before. Mostly on Mondays and Fridays more than 50% of employees stay home and get advantages of their great benefits. Some age discrimination recently happened in Montreal office.
Slavery job, Too many show off, they should stop comparing themselves with other large companies, Very cheap and old system to work with, old class and old school
Manufacturing Support (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 February 2018
I enjoyed working at Shaw Communications because it gave me the opportunity to learn from different departments: Modems, cable boxes, and shipping and receiving. I was really challenged working at Shaw and it gave me the opportunity to work with other engineers and quality control department.
Installer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 February 2018
Good people not getting a fair shake and disappearing. Training for IHT still leaves something to be desired. You don't become a Journeyman in 8-12 weeks. Big start up costs for IHT and micro managed by supervisors that shouldn't be in the position. Some very nice people but Toxic individuals seem to be on the rise. Amazing benefits, erratic mentoring and little job security.
productive and fun working atmosphere.(one call resolution)
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 20 February 2018
Working at Shaw cable I learned to make an angry customer into a happy and satisfied customer before the call is ended. All staff at Shaw are very helpful and a joy to work with . Loved my supervisors and co-workers. I would absolutely go back to Shaw cable but they are down sizing there employees .
Customer Solutions Expert (CSE) (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 February 2018
Shaw has good work environment only if you learn how to lick the a.. Of your Supervisor and Specialist. Lot of favouritism and no job security. No matter how well you do if they like you they will keep you. If they don't they will manage you out in few seconds.
A great place to work but chaotic leadership and little advancement
Senior QA (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 February 2018
I really enjoyed the people at Shaw and it has a good environment for work-life balance. What I don't like are there are too many executive vetos and little visibility in the company's roadmap. Also it is easy to get silo'ed into a role and then have difficulty moving out of it.
Flexible work hours and reasonable work expectations
Little advancement and lack of insight into the company's roadmap
