Great learning experience
Network Engineering Associate (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON11 November 2019
The corporate environment made it very challenging to get anything done. Management was difficult to deal with, the red tape and policies added unnecessary time and headaches. The union environment had a very us (union) vs them (management) feeling to it.

TBayTel is a joke - Toxic work environment
Operations (Current Employee) –  Annonymous7 May 2019
Just like someone mentioned in another post, you have no chance of ever advancing with this company unless you have relatives in high places. In other words, nepotism exists at TBayTel. They do not treat their employees fair especially when it comes to their hiring practices as they favor certain people (usually the ones who are phony and kiss butt) or if you are related to someone in Management. TBayTel used to be a very good place to work many years ago until the H/R department, arrogant managers who lack people skills, rude employees who think they own the world came along and ruined it. Some of the employees are hard to work with due to their bad attitudes. All they care about is making money as they are never satisfied with their generous wages. They always work countless overtime and complain. AVOID as TBayTel is a very toxic work environment.
Pros
Wages are good and employee discounts
Cons
No chance of advancing unless you know someone - called nepotism

Impossible to move up, likely to see high turnover rates here in the near future
Staff (Current Employee) –  Tbaytel8 June 2018
As mentioned in another review, it is nearly impossible to move up in the company. They value certifications and education over all else, and do not understand the value of experience. The company has a favoritism issue as many times a less qualified person who has the right last name or the right friends will be loopholed into a position that they are not as qualified for as other applicants who have been denied. Also due to the union environment many of the incumbent staff have become quite accustomed to doing the absolute bare minimum of work, much to the chagrin of those trying to move upwards within the company.
Pros
High hourly rate of pay
Cons
Many entry level positions trap staff as part time for 6 or more years, Part time positions may only provide bare subsistence hours for months at a time, Part timers are not able to set availability and work a second job, Part time staff do not get paid vacation or benefits

Just good enough to keep you from looking for another job...almost.
Network Engineering Associate (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON19 July 2016
Being a union environment tends to make the career path rather static and tends to make people not to bother too much with striving for excellence because it will not yield any additional benefit. Promotion is based on seniority and education and certifications, rather than experience. I think we pass over really good people because of this.
Pros
Secure career
Cons
Not much chance of any advancement if you don't have required credentials, regardless of your experience and skill set.
