Une compagnie en continuelle évolution
Concepteur réseau (Current Employee) –  laval15 February 2019
J'y travaille depuis plus de 3 ans.
Les opportunités pour l'évolution des ressources sont grandes.
Grande évolution au niveau de l'amélioration continuelle. Les employés sont amenés à trouver des pistes d'amélioration, ce qui aide grandement à la responsabilisation des ressources.
Une belle ambiance de travail.
Un salaire très compétitif.
Il suffit de vouloir travailler, de vouloir avancer dans la compagnie, et les gestionnaires d'équipe en place, sont prêts à vous aider pour y arriver.
La conciliation travail/famille est possible.
Et pour ceux qui veulent se donner à fond, et faire du temps supplémentaires, le tout est possible également.
Il y en a de tous les goûts.
Pros
Horaire flexible, nouveaux défis, nouveaux postes pour appliquer et se dépasser, direction ouverte vers le changement.
Cons
journée de maladie pas assez nombreuses.

Decent management, good co-workers.
Structured Cabling Technician (Current Employee) –  Saint John, NB3 February 2019
A typical day involves running cable through the ceiling of a store. The company does a good job of keeping people working, and all of the crews are easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job is the physical requirements; you don't have to be a firefighter, but you can't be Homer Simpson, either. The most enjoyable part of the job is good banter in the crew, making the time fly. Plenty of opportunity for overtime.
Pros
Easy to learn
Cons
The stuff on top of ceiling tiles

Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Ontario15 January 2019
Honestly, as far as the company went, I enjoyed working for them in the sense that they paid a fair wage for the work I was doing and were fairly lenient with the time frame that I was doing my work in.

Work hard, play hard
Laborer (Current Employee) –  Peterborough, ON29 December 2018
Great company, have to bust your butt to move ahead so if you're lazy don't apply. Big on health and safety so, you should be too..you work rain or shine for the most part so get some good coveralls and boots too.
Pros
Great benefits after probationary period. Work hard and you'll move up.
Cons
Probationary period for laborer is 842hrs. Long hours..go to work in the dark come home in the dark.

Strange Place
Materials Coordinator (Former Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON6 December 2018
I liked working for Telecon but I was like contracted to work for them under another company, and all of this was on a bell site.

The whole thing was really confusing but the pay was great and the work was easy.

I really wish I could get this job again sometimes.
Pros
pay and workload
Cons
disorganized

Worst working conditions in this industry
Install and Repair Technician (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB5 December 2018
Management was little to nonexistent. Zero training or physical help with problems on the job. Lowest pay in the industry. Company did everything to try and get an employee to work free on their own time. They would try everything possible to not pay overtime. Overall this is a very unprofessional company.
Pros
N/a
Cons
Never have weekends or stat days off.

Repetitive job, horrible managers.
CAD TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON6 November 2018
This job gets boring after the first week as you're doing the same thing over and over again. The co workers are nice and cool, however the management here is horrible. You're just another disposal person to them.

The managers are always micromanagining you, always breathing down your neck even if you are completing everything they are asking for.

The overall turnover for this company is ridiculously high, like I mentioned you're just a disposable person to them.

There is absolutely no career advancement here. Best to work here for about 6 months or a year and then leave, there are many companies out there who will pay you better than what you'll get here, and who will respect you as a person.
Pros
Free coffee.
Cons
Everything else about this company

Don't waste your time unless your desperate
FIBRE OPTIC TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 October 2018
Terrible mid to upper management, mostly due to nepotism. no stability, out of control turnover, wages are ridiculous. You will start low and get 25cent a year raise forever.
If your incompetent, you may climb the ladder to management faster as useful people are needed to badly in the field and they cant afford to lose them. We've had a few very inexperienced recruits come dangerously close to disaster.
Benefits are misleading, your simply signed up for a group insurance plan which you have to compensate for from your pay.
They try to disobey labor laws by sending you to other towns and not compensating for travel unless you fight them HARD.

High expectations but no appreciation (monetary or professional). Eventually everyone's morale goes sour and all you hear is complaining.

If you need a "between jobs" kind of job it might be the place because they'll hire anyone. But keep your options open.
Pros
good hours, great co workers
Cons
Mid to upper management, pay, morale

great ppl bad management
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 October 2018
the most enjoyable part of the job is the ppl you work with. Most people are pretty laid back and everyone gets along in the office in scarborough. The company itself offers absolutely no job security little to no pay raise ex. i worked here for two years and received a .25 cent raise. i kid you not! Management is powerless. they do nothing for the people yet expect you to play as a "team". when i say play as a team i mean do other pals job when they are on vacation, help people out from other offices take on any extra work regardless of how heavy your own workload is and you better do it with a smile or they will call you out! The only people who move up and around in this company i management. every other move within the company is "linear". Linear meaning more work but same pay. This company is ideal for someone about to retire who is not expecting to make money. This company is a revolving door. people get hired today and quit tomorrow because the management do not explain the jobs in the interview correctly, they leave it vague so they can pile work on you.
Pros
people you work with
Cons
pay and management

Business Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON22 September 2018
The people that work for the company are awesome.
They opened a new building and unfortunately they compared it to a pervious building which didn't have the same functionalities.
There for the opening was very difficult.

Impossible to have a stable schedule
Cableur Structuré (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC20 September 2018
Work is ok, management wise it depends who is your boss.
They switch your schedule anytime they want (day, night, evening)
You might have to travel far to work

run away as fast as you can...
Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON18 June 2018
I am surprised this company actually getting 3.5 star overall review, as a matter a fact, anything more than 2 star for this company is surprising...i have worked for this company for 3 years and worked very hard for it (constant overtime during the week and Saturdays), I got my promotion after 1 year of hardworking but even with 25% bump in my pay after promotion it's still terrible compare to what other companies paying for similar jobs. Other than the low pay, management is terrible, indecisive managers causing lots of re-work and wasting lots of time and budget. Most promotions and raises goes to nice talkers and relatives of the manager. This place eventually becoming toxic as everyone at the lunch tables talks about how much they hate this company and how much they hate the management. You are just a tool to the company for them to make money, they don't care about you at all. Turn over rate is ridiculous high in this company and after leaving this company and move on to competitor companies, I met lots of ex-telecom coworkers and everyone is just happy that we got out! so stay away and run as fast as you can!
Pros
easy 8 hours when you stop caring since your manager don't care about you anyways
Cons
low pay, no appreciation, no career advancement
