It's an OK place to work.

Not bad, not terrible. Pay's decent and with good benefits. My manager at that time was very understanding with my family situation and was able to get some time off to deal with it.

Coop work term - very friendly environment to work.

I took two coop work terms at SaskTel. Everybody was ready to help and I learnt alot. There are opportunities to grow and advance your skills. The pay was really good.

Large outdated Phone Company

Can be a good place to work. Company is struggling to move into the future and often business decisions are based on old ideas. A previous monopoly means that the competitive thinking is not engrained.

Great management, great benefits, stressful work

I have worked with the company for two years and had worked in two different roles. Management is good to you and they want you to succeed. Great work culture, and there’s a reason why they are ranked at the top 100 companies to work for in Canada.


Flexibility, structured org, lateral career progression, low employee turnover


Jobs can be a bit stressful at times but rewarding, bureaucratic at times, lateral career progression

Its a solid place to work.

Its challenging work, but at times frustrating due to in effective people or layers of red tape hindering progress. The people are generally helpful and happy which makes a good work environment.

I worked there 6 years, but it only took 6 months of changes to destroy my health and drive me out

SaskTel hates its employees and wants to grind them into the dust. Low-level management in my experience was great, but anyone above that is just your standard corporate stooge who doesn't care about anyone. The jobs wants to chew you up, spit you out, and get rid of you as quickly as possible, because it's cheaper to hire noobies at the lower wage than to make the job decent for the skilled, experienced reps.
