Don’t care about customer service anymore only sales

I worked for telus for over 12 years . When I first started at telus we we empowered to do everything within our power to help the customer with a customer first mentality .. since 2021 they added a sales target and this target never left .. I don’t mind selling a bit but sales pressure and sneaky tactics is not for me so I took the buyout package as my department was sent overseas .. Iam sad to see this once go amazing company go down hill .. and I don’t think they will survive if competition enters the Canadian telecom market .. seems like greed took over on the upper management.. they also stopped investing in their systems and don’t mind keeping customers on hold and upsetting them yet at the same time expect customers to buy their products

Mentally depleting

Worked there for 15 years. Never thought I’d leave until the last couple years when making sales outweighed everything else you do. Offshoring all other positions so there is no advancing anymore.


Wages and benefits


Sales pressure, offshoring so you can’t apply for other roles

Good team spirit, executives are not good people

The immediate team you work for such as your co-workers, local support and some of the managers were some of the best I ever had. There is something special about the group you get hired with, you help out each other is someone is struggling, managers are very good about sick days and not forcing overtime onto you. Some of the dispatch team were excellent people. However the call center transitioned from folks in Edmonton and BC to the Philippines one year and it just went down ever since, orders were screwed up every single day, and they didn't know what they were talking about when you needed them to fix something on the back end. Management became stressed, mandatory sales targets came in otherwise you will get fired (for service technicians....yeah make that make sense please). The union is useless and just bends to the will of the TELUS executives, and the CEO is a terrible human being.


Customers were rad 99% of the time, amazing co-workers, dental benefits were the best in the country (100% coverage).


The executives hate technicians and will run this company into the ground

It’s alright

Work is great if you reaaally love customer service. Like, complaints and impatience side of customer service. There are days it gets terrible, especially around holidays and during the summer. However, it’s not the worst. Pays the bills.


Cell phone benefits


Terrible customers

High pressure

Company now pushing sales and less focus on actual customer service. CEO more interested in weakening union by highering more off shore and AI. Working from home is a positive.

Some of the best managers I have ever had and they make all the difference

Working at TELUS was the best job I ever had. I only left because they phased out my department and the severance offer was more than enough to pay off all my debts and go back to school. Some of the best managers I have ever had and they make all the difference! The day-to-day challenges vary depending on what department you are in but if you are good at sales you will always have a job even if another pandemic hits. Though there are hints of wilful ignorance when departments are on the chopping block, things like “oh you don’t need to be cross trained in that, we still have millions of customers that are going to need your roll for years to come” meanwhile there are monthly updates on how well the project to “move those customers over to the new systems they refuse to train you on” is progressing. The language on a lot of the internal documents is becoming increasingly geared toward “social-justice” and “woke-ness” but the company has always been diverse and focussed on equality so the actual culture didn’t really change in the ten years I was there. Mental health, work-life-balance, and charitable giving are definitely huge parts of the culture. Compensation is at the top of the industry, with stellar benefits, and a union backing you up… sort of… honestly since selling out to the United Steel Workers the union has become let’s say less than they should be. I highly recommend maxing out your employee share plan, retirement savings plan, and RRSP contributions as they have great corporate matching, when I left I had over 80K in shares and that’s after dipping in a few - 


Quality of the managers, amazing compensation, work from home opportunities


Becoming "woke" or at least paying lip-service to SJW interests.

Upper management pressures team leaders which makes them pressure their employees. Company is mostly interested in numbers and pretends to care about employees but most of the decisions are based on profitability.
