Lot of politics and favouritism ...good pay.
Customer Solutions Expert (CSE) (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC16 February 2018
Shaw has good work environment only if you learn how to lick the a.. Of your Supervisor and Specialist. Lot of favouritism and no job security. No matter how well you do if they like you they will keep you. If they don't they will manage you out in few seconds.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Bad work ethic of managers.

Fun place to work
Payment Solutions Representative (Current Employee) –  Victoria, BC13 February 2018
Shaw is a great place to work and have been here for 18 years.

Typical day would be extremely busy from when you log in to going home. I love the work that i do everyday.

The culture is not the same as it use to be. Not alot of staff functions.


The hardest part is getting everything done by the end of day, challenging but good.

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 February 2018
Team based work. Management was okay. Still in early stages of having teams integrated for an efficient work place. Working hours were good, and pay was average.

management as smart as a flock of headless chickens...
In Home Representative (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC8 February 2018
management as smart as a flock of headless chickens...

1. You are not trained.
2. No room for advancement
3. Brainless Supervisors

The real problem is any Sales related job at Shaw. You are managed by a bunch of unqualified careless leaders who refuse to help support or teach there sales people. from ignorance or lack of ability. i do not know. maybe both. in all my years in sales i have never had a worse experience.

Terrible pay to. Great health benefits thats it

Customer Solutions Expert (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB6 February 2018
Everybody in Shaw work hard and help each other to succeed as a team. Shaw is a place where you can grow not only professionally but intellectually. Where my work is appreciated. Sometimes rewarding sometimes challenging but always happy. #ShawCares.

Interesting place to work
DIGITAL MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 February 2018
I like working at Shaw. It is a very interesting place to work but sometimes I felt a little lost in terms of management. I found myself taking decisions that weren't supposed to be done by me.

great pay if you don't mind living in fear of the yearly "spring cleaning".
Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC31 January 2018
great pay if you don't mind living in fear of the yearly "spring cleaning" (that means the layoffs they do every spring). Job security is non existent but the benefits and pay are great if you can handle being nothing more than a number with a dollar figure attached to your head.

New management made for a tense, passive agressive, and frankly uncomfortable workplace.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB23 January 2018
The only thing they care about is numbers. If you're not reaching your target, expect micromanagement, condescendence and very little respect.
It's not who you are, it's who you know.

TSR (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON19 January 2018
I can not think of one good thing to say about Management or Supervisors there. Workplace culture is sad. I think place needs a complete overhaul. It seems no one matters there and people are treated with no respect.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons

Its a call centre job
Customer Advisor, Payment Solutions (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC17 January 2018
The benefit package is good but the corporation's objectives in recent years tend to benefit the company not the individual employees.
The constant monitoriing of your time to the second is supposed to help increase efficiencies but in turn, rewards those who do less for the customer and punishes people who take pride in being thorough.
Pros
great benefits package
Cons
the call centres are understaffed, and the calls are back to back

A positive, fast paced work environment, great for people who enjoy being challenged
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC16 January 2018
Working for Shaw opened many doors for me. This company provided me many great learning opportunities and the ever changing, fast paced environment made it so I had to always be looking out for new learning opportunities by myself.
The leadership team is positive and helpful while guiding you to grow in your current role and providing options to get you where you want to be within and even outside of the company.
The hardest part of the job ended up being the customers and the issues that come with not being faced to face, the support team is always there to help you through the difficult and help you come out with a new outlook to handle similar situations.
The most enjoyable part of this job is the people you get to work with and the laid back, open door policy everyone seems to have.
Great entry and experienced job opportunities for everyone.
Pros
coworkers
Cons
not flexible shifts
