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

All about the bottom dollae
Labourer (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON26 May 2018
Ive been with this company for two years now. I have not recieved a raise since. The people who work in the field are great and create a pleasant and fun work enviorment. As fat as management goes all they are interested in is numbers and profit at any cost. Employees come last and everything else comes first. They are not part of a union instead the company created an association which is a joke to say the least which evryone pays in to every pay cheque.

Personally I would stay away from this company as employees have started to leave due to the above mentioned reasons including the companys work is mobing towards oshawa where its a different region which means a wage cut for all emplyees and if u refuse u get laid off.

I am looking for employment currently
Pros
New equipment, trucks, etc
Cons
Lack of communication, all about the money, no possibility of moving up

Good Place . Wage is the issue
former office staff (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON23 May 2018
Great people and always busy, to the point that you are constantly jumping to help others out.. Job Security is there as well... however wages for office staff are not what is stated. Very little raises are given even if you receive a really good overall score on your performance. Management is great, How the money is spread out though, very little goes to the office support team.
Pros
people and the work load
Cons
wage and moving up

Good foot in the door oppurtunity
Lineman (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS3 April 2018
Decent place to get your foot in the door.
Work there for a year or two then find a better company.
The pay is low and you're just a number to them.
Not very team oriented
Their main language is french and sometimes the work orders aren't very descriptive


Start pay is 15 dollars an hour then they hire people with experiance for much more who don't have a clue what they're doing

Currently looking for a new job with a different employer becasue there is no room to move up

You are just a number
Real Estate/Surface Land Administrator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 March 2018
Definitely not a candidate for Employer of the Year award.

Employees are just numbers to them.

Poor communication and French is the language of preference as all correspondence appears in French first.

Very cheap organization, no perks for employees or contractors.
Pros
none
Cons

Aerial Design Technician (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON30 January 2018
It's a good company if you're looking to get your foot in the door. However, the salary is quite minimal especially for the duties and tasks completed.

Great place to work at, but only recommended for people that are looking for temporary work
Engineering Design Technician (Current Employee) –  Oakville, ON2 November 2017
it was a great cultured work place with great management, however, we didnt have the best job security.

you are required to work a lot harder compared to the compensation provided.

the most enjoyable part of the job was the people i work with, you can look back for personal support and rely for a rainy day.
Pros
Free Parking
Cons
No job security

A witness to the slow decline through...
Design Technician (Former Employee) –  Oakville, ON1 November 2017
A witness to the slow decline of this company as it was renamed 3 times and through different owners. Broken promises and lower morale each time it happened.

Management needs a complete overhaul. Deserving employees are always overlooked and the minuscule raises and promotions go to the suck ups. Starting pay is low, raises and minimal to non-existent. Hard work not recognized. Management doesn’t listen to anyone’s concerns, shocked that this company hasn’t gone under at this rate.
Pros
Easy 8 hours when you stop caring.
Cons
Management, pay, benefits.
