Life as a Draftsman
Draftsman (Former Employee), Prince George, BCAugust 7, 2015
Pros: Good people and benefits
Cons: They didn't see the value of keeping me, haha.
Telus once B.C. Tel, was a very good place for me to work. 20 years in all, and for the most part I enjoyed working there more than any other job I have ever had. I learned to work with others, most co-workers were very helpful. The hardest part came when I had to leave.....they closed the drafting department around 2010. It was a hard decision to make, but I left. I still with many other workers believe they could have done it differently but that is the way it goes. I am very thankful for those 20 years I had there. Note: I did have a break of service, worked for them twice.

Great Place to Work
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Brampton, OntarioJune 9, 2015
Pros: Great employee discounts on devices and accessories, employee rate plan.
Cons: Standing for full shift is a requirement. Not very intellectually challenging.
As an established organization, Telus is among one of the best to work for. There are many opportunities for career growth, however the fact that it is a well-established organization could work against you in that respect.

In trying to move to head office in a Sales Rep role, there will be a number of challenges and roadblocks that could prevent you advancement.

However, at the store level, if you are looking for entry level employment that can be lucrative without any previous experience, it is a good job.

Draconian work environment
Facility Inventory Coordinator Clerk (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJune 4, 2015
Pros: Wage, pension
Cons: Draconian work environment.
The union before its merger with USW had absolutely no bargaining power/leverage. Your job could be contracted out at anytime. The managers are patently Machiavellian in their one-on-one dealings with employees; the labor relations dept works close with management to manipulate or impose their will and interpretation of the texts/articles of the CA that was anything but the intent at the time of writing.
