False promises, don’t care for employees or customersAfter working for GTel 2 years, they are unable to keep employees due to low wage and total lack of care coming from upper management. Vehicles falling apart, losing tires, they toss you into an inadequate rental and don’t even ask if you’re okay when you could have died. Promise profit sharing (bonus) only to have it removed for union members. Anti-union sentiment from management. Company thinks they own every hour of your life: if you have kids be ready not to see them. No work/life balance. Health and Safety is a sham, doesn’t hold up to reality. Territory to cover is far too large, they take on contracts when they don’t have the staff to match workload. I could go on, not worth the effort of applying.They’ll lie unabashedly to get you hired, nothing but false bottom lip service.

Great management and coworkers Great company to work for. From dispatch to management, you can feel all the support you need to complete your projects in a safe an professional manner. The company offers the necessary training tools, classes and very well prepared documents to call for a successful career. Although the workload is high in certain seasons, management teams make easier for their coworkers to get through any difficulties they encounter. A G-tel employee can also feel the power of coordination with CEO and the city development teams as well.

Difficult place to work, low staff levels for the amount of workTo many hours a week for the employee in the Northern Area, company has trouble hiring staff with such low salaries, not able to retain staff, workload falls on the remaining staff. Employees have to work 55-60 hrs a week, on call for over half the year.
Terrible place to work, over worked, underpaid and underappreciatedThey give you an unreasonable workload with objectives that cannot be met. The expectation is that you will fail so they don't have to pay you what you're actually worth. You will never get a reasonable rate of pay or appreciation for the work you put in. It is a fly by the seat of your pants, highly stressful work environment. You cannot care about your job, because you will lose your soul. I have not met one person here that likes working for this company except those fake till you make it people. The management is a JOKE (except for a VERY few), and they just keep moving up them up the ladder because they happen to be buddy-buddy with someone at the top.They have lost most of their veteran employees because they don't want to pay them fairly, yet will pay contractors more when they are in desperate need. Corporate run, soul-sucking machine.
