I&R technician (Current Employee) – Lower Mainland, BC – 16 February 2017
I started working for AFL a little while ago and found that they have changed soo much in the past year or two for the lower mainland.
They have new management everywhere, new intense training, and huge advancement opportunities! Its a peace work job which I find awesome, because the more you work the more you make. There is always more jobs you can take if you want, so you could technically work 7 days a week if you want.
I can though the one thing which is lacking is the benefits. They state it being all great when you sign up, but the truth is its behind the times. I don't think they have upgraded their plan for the past 10+ years! It need a refresh. But saying that, it seems like everything is getting an overhaul right now.
what a joke this company is!!! worst company ever.

the management of i & r has no clue whats going half of them have no idea what the technicians do. its incredible they manage to make any money.the director should go back to england. absolutely worst company i have ever worked for its a sinking ship. look out in the intviews they will lie to you to get you in. you wont make more then 200$ a day they limit you and you will work every weekend or be sent out of town for weeks or months. they have gps in the vans to watch you job used to be fun but they took that away by micromanagement and horrible pay.

Drop Technician (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 10 December 2015
I've made the mistake of working for this horrible company twice. Once when it was ATI and then again when they were bought out by AFL. I was hoping things would get better after being bought out by a larger company... I was very wrong. This company is so disorganized it's hard to believe they're still in business. Management has no idea what is going on and will change their mind almost daily. The work is never consistent. I was employed from June - December and half of that time I was "stood down" because management didn't have enough work. I would strongly recommend DO NOT WORK HERE!!
FIELD TELECOM TECHNICIAN (CONTRACTOR) (Former Employee) – Calgary alberta – 25 May 2015
You are guilty till proven innocent. That's the slogan of this company, they drill you to get better ratings and no thanks, but when you fall short they hit you hard. Your are not valued you are simply a number with statistics.
money is good when there is work
dont count on being there for too long as you could be let go for no reason
Seems good to start, until you don't get paid. I have a complaint against them with Employment Standards as they owe me over $1000. It's been 10 weeks since I worked for them and still no money even though they admit they owe me.
Does not recognize some BC stat holidays. Takes $ 50.00 per month from pay check for training. Poor to little training or support from manager. Lost personal information. Cheap, pay sucks and they blame it on Telus. Local management has no idea, employees are thrown under the bus in front of other employees.
