Very stressful and disrespectful

Team managers are very rude, gossipy and bullying employees. You are watched every second, micromanaged to the point they time your washroom breaks, if you go three times they pull you in and give you the 3rd degree and warnings. Graveyard shifts are forced upon you. If you call in sick or are 1min late they call you into a union meeting and insult you.The union is not in the employee side it’s in the management side, you will not be supported by the union. The worst place I ever worked.

Pros

Retirement Benefit only.

Cons

Graveyard. Favouritism. Childish management

Don't waste your time applying

A bunch of immature managers that think they own Fortis. They all working to make someone's dream come true. They'd make up stories, instead of getting facts right. A total waste of time working there.

Fortis BC a Life of Stress & Misery

IU worked 2.5 years for FBC Electricity. With a Spineless Union that couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag, to Team leaders who contorl who gets a permanent position and where SENIORITY means absolutely nothing, to screaming customers who are choked about their bills and the fact that a SMART Meter was being litterally forced upon them at risk of cutting their power if they didn't take it. One team lead who blows his own horn and loves the sound of his own voice and looks for any excuse to dump on call centre staff. Who picks his friends and cute girls to fill permanent positions as opposed to those who actually earn them. The hours are between 7 am and 7 PM. On the plus side if you like to get fat, everytime new trainee's hit the floor there are Pizzas in the lunch room. People bring doughnuts and muffins from time to time and if you are lucky if there meetings across the hall that are catered you will get to have the leftovers they didn't eat. Fire drills are truly a blessing in disguise. The actual call center staff are actually really really good and supportive of each other. The lunch room is where everyone tells their horror stories about customers on the phone. Free Coffee or tea or Iced tea. Free office supplies, for use in office. They do support you if you have a PHYSICAL disability and will accommodate you with Special chairs or Keyboards and now most desks are stand up sit down desks. Great view of the columbia river and every so many months you switch to a different desk. Just don't ever tick off a Team Manager for any reason or they will make it their - 

Pros

Free Food Sometimes, Free coffee, Weekends off, Overtime in the winter.

Cons

Management, Fattening Doughnuts, and Angry customers, Huge learning curve
