Run don't walk away from this place.
Pros: benefits, & triple play rate deductions.
Cons: management - in particular the supervisors are bullies, very cliquey, high school mentality
Shaw itself is a great company to work for with amazing perks, benefits and advancement possibilities.
However, for some departments, if you are not part of the popular clique, you're looked down upon, mocked, or ignored - until one of the in crowd wants something - then they're your best friend.
Dare to say no, for any reason, to any clique member – more... request and before you know it, you're pulled into managements office, tag teamed or triple teamed, and being accused of not being a team player or worse.
Shaw prefers its employees to have a sheep like mentality. Dare to have an original thought and again, you're cast out as being not a team player.
The management team rarely recognized the hard work, drive and determination of non preferred team members. Instead, these true team players were ridiculed, sometimes publicly mocked, and again ostracized. They were often used as a lesson for other non preferred staff members - to get in line or this will happen to you.
HR was no better than the management team - often taking their cues from the management team. Go to them with a grievance, and again, you're cast out as not being a team player and you will pay for trying to stand up for yourself.
It's been awhile since I worked at Shaw, but the scars of being bullied day in and day out are still quite fresh. I now work for a company with an amazing manager / supervisor and team. The very things I used to be mocked, or bullied for at shaw - I'm routinely rewarded and recognized for. My current team works together for the greater good of the company. This unfortunately was not the case at Shaw TV Edmonton.
Until Shaw TV Edmonton management, in particular the supervisors, can live the company values they clearly have no problem shoving down their employee's throat, and treats all employees equally, I would highly recommend to run not walk away from this place. – less
