Telecon is a comprehensive suite of telecommunications network deployment services to suit projects of all sizes and complexity and also it is well-established and long-standing relationships with Canada’s key telecommunications providers. And it has a friendly environment, but their pay are too low
Poor management. Often wheeled into jobs without proper training or equipment to do the job, then asked why something is taken so long or gone to the dumpa. Profit driven, bonuses to upper management only. Christmas time? Here's a thank you email, now get back to work. Wages are comparatively lower than competitors. No ladder climbing, since there is absolutely no ladder. Except cost of living raises once per year -- If you get one at all (none in 2 years now).It's a place to work while you look for another job.
Health Plan is decent. RRSP matching, although minimal.
Low wages, No advancement opportunities.
bad management,.micro managing is the worst you have 5 or 6 bosses and they all want something different and if one of them doesn't like you your on their hit list. Too much risk versus reward , bad environment toxic everyone talks bad about eveyone, too many promises not enough follow through. Don't wokr here its not worth losing your time.
company vehicle, company laptop, company phone, company fuel card.
managament, pay, toxic work place.

Good and you. Place kucks, ree-tards rule. Don't bother and kuk u shorey! Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”
Place is balls
Hired as an operator but spent my first days driving around with the company gopher picking up pilons and garbage. Promised lots of overtime and career advancement yet finished around 2-3pm each day given tasks that can lower IQ like moving dirt 5 feet from one pile to another. First day of work and the guy who hired me forgot my name and must've forgot about hiring me because he didn't even have a plan of what crew I'd be on. Workers themselves were nice guys but the supervisors are so lost on the job its almost sad.. If your fine with not learning anything or not being used to your potential, want barely any hours and want to be led by the blind then this is the place for you!
other workers are good guys
No hours, no advancement, supervision is completely lost and useless
good at first...then a union came in, and that was the beginning of the end. They were so sour about the union coming in, that an OK job turned into a lousey place to work.
when the day was over
short changed at end of employment
After working for Telecon for over 5 years, I came to realize that you are only a number. They don't care about your outside of work life and expect you to be available 24/7. The company is only for the money and nothing else. They keep buying companies across the country to have a large presence but they don't know how to manage them after acquiring. Salaries are VERY low compared to the same job titles and only upper management will receive bonuses. If you are working for the company anywhere besides Montreal, expect to have slower communication and importance. How the company handled COVID-19 was a joke. Claiming to be a leader in Telecommunication in Canada yet lay off almost 100% of the company.
terrible management from the highest level
- hard work is not rewarded appropriately with respect to years of experience - minimal room for promotion after 5 years - field supervisors are lead by management staff from Toronto/Montreal - a front seat of a vehicle becomes a very uncomfortable place as an office - field supervisors are continuously suspicious of their subordinates and in general practice a 'I know it all' attitude. - the expected (the quota number is a sham) completed workload is not reflective of the salary - there have been improvements with infield support but still have a long way to go - reasonable amount of responsibility without any authority - a whole lot of brown-nosing / gossip goes on between supervisors, lead hands and a select few. - great job if you like puzzle, work by yourself and have minimal work experience/ a high school education/general college degree - locating is actually an enjoyable job, and would go back to locating again.
vehicle, benefits, make your own hours
too many to list unfortunately
Well you get a company car leave from your home to any site you need to locate you never go to the office. You complete the tickets on time and no one bothers you unless you make a mistake or do anything wrong. It’s $19 an hour if u work the basic amount you will starve. If you want to eat in the winter you need to work 84 hours a week in the summer and save for the winter months. It’s our third year with company with NO wage increases. If you work really hard and long hours you can make $80 000 to $120 000 a year but that’s no days off in the summer.
Independent work environment
Can’t feed your family in the winter
Terrible company to work for, head office Is in Quebec you don’t hear anything from them.closed all the Alberta offices down during COVID-19 lost 80% of there techs and office staff, then tried to apologize after losing a load of work!!! No reviews, no pay rise but more work and pressured to get projects done.
Terrible pay and conditions
Il vous font croire a du 22$ et + en restant vague mais après plusieurs questions on te dis de la fermer et que tu va voir en te disant que CA va être correct. A la première paie tu fais le saut 15$/h et pas toutes tes heures en plus. Faut que tu cour mais ne fais pas d'erreur car tu va être dans le pétrin car quand ils vont creuser et qui brisent quelque choses tu va être responsable. C'est correct pour des étudiants JEUNES qui veulent travailler mais esperer pas d'avenir la et c'est saisonnier.
j'ai fait le travail de localisateur un été c'était une belle job en attendant mais les salaires pour les responsabilités que tu a la charge de travail et le stress n'en valent pas vraiment la peine et manque de gestion dans certains secteurs mais comme job temporaire si tu est quelqu'un de débrouillard autonome sa pourrait être quelques chose d'interessant
