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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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
Salary is reasonable

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

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
