Great place to work but not competitive pay
Telus is focus on work life balance. It's a place where they do care about this value. The opportunity cost is that salary is not very competitive. I guess the trade off is that if you want top dollars then you will have to work on high stress job. I would recommend working at Telus if you want a relax family friendly environment but salary might but be as competitive. (This could have been specific to my department /group)
Front-end lacky in Calgary, AB
Doesn't know what they are doing
The company is a bureaucratic nightmare and when you have an issue don't expect help, contact HR and see if anyone gets back to you or figure it out through their internal websites. Management is only out for their own jobs, they don't care about front-line staff and they understand staff will either be soon replaced, quit, be fired, or burn out so there is no effort made to keep them. The work from home during Covid is a mess, equipment is low end and does not do the job. My advice if you get a job, buy your own headset, keyboard and mouse because what they send is junk. Consider why they are always hiring, even now when no one is, must be people leaving due to the stress or why leave a job when few are out there? If there were more jobs in the market I would be looking for a way out. Worst decision I ever made to work here
CAM AGENT/ CLIENT CARE in Burnaby, BC
Good place to work but Customers made it not worth it
I enjoyed working there, mainly worked from home so I was in charge of my own progress and work! Only issue was the customers and how they treat you. There is a certain level of expectation that is given and must be met which can be hard when customers are set on things going their way never mind policy.

Telus doesn't have work anymore.
Telus communication doesn't have a jobs for technician. Now their sales team is not performing so, telus wants technicians to do sales in customer homes. After covid new policies are in place and rules are very very strict. There are 10 matrix like gps arrival ( on time cx home), kit test ( cx service check), insider test( go to cx all the rooms and check for signal level in covid), they say "mention in commeents if you why you didn't run that test". When test fail your matrix goes down and theu kick you out of company and you can't come back. It was very stressful when they had work but now they don't so, we are not getting paid.... please don't take jobs.

Culture is good on paper, terrible in practice
I worked at TELUS a bit over 9 years before I had enough of how this business was running. The company presents itself as the best paying company and amongst the top 10 employers in Canada. There are definitely good managers here who care about their people, but they also work with limited resources and monstrous workloads. I kept hearing “We need to do more with less”, and my responsibilities kept growing I was working 12 hours a day and doing the work of 3:people. I went through 3 major reorganizations in 9 years; this is a very instable ground for a career. I saw talented people being packaged for a so called “efficiency” measure while the company results were actually good versus their competitors. I thought working for the “health” department would offer me outstanding benefits. Shortly after I joined this company, the benefits dropped and worsened every year. Call centres employees sounded like getting way more benefits than professional management employees. I went through salary freezes, budget cuts, shameful bonuses cuts... It was just awful!Back to the “culture”; there’s this employees yearly satisfaction survey that apparently determines the employees engagement level. This survey is a big joke. First it becomes a competition between directors and above on who’s team will have a better score. Second, you are told in plain language that there will be consequences if you don’t have a good score. This survey and how it is done brings all the values of this business down the drain.I really had enough of it all and went to their competitor. It was the best decision of my life.
