    I worked at TELUS (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free popcorn and hot dogs on first Friday.

    Cons

    I received an email to work hurricane Harvey in Las Vegas after fingerprints and background check. I was hired so I quit the job I was at to help. Five days later myself and about 100 others were let go because of background from FEMA. Then the pay card they gave me was not assigned to me meaning no money. They gave me another that further delayed getting paid by another 24 hours. I quit a good job to work at Telia and can't go back now. Really bad form on their part and extremely bad for me.

    Advice to Management

    Before you tell me I'm hired and quit my job to work there, make sure I'm hired you idiots.

    Pros

    This is a BPO. With that said the outside company that you are working for is great.

    Cons

    Once the client leaves and its time for Telus to take over and do the job without them they dont hold up to their standards. Alot of drama there.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your management team and have communication

    Pros

    Worst company ever! Do not work here ever.

    Cons

    Everything and they had a bed bugs outbreak several times. One person got bit and she was pregnant. They had the worst management. Totally unprofessional. They fire people every single day. Firing people is part of their culture. I worked in a position that allowed me access to all the severations and it was shocking to say the least as to how many people were being fired everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Get a management consultant to help with your business and a culture coach because it is clear you have no idea what your doing.

    I worked at TELUS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vacation time after 90 days, free snacks, no blocked websites.

    Cons

    Promise promotions, but those come with easy layoffs. Promise raise innpay after a year, you have to bug and bug them for it. No order, rude team leads, don't listen to their employees. All they care about is making Google happy with numbers. Will demote you to an agent without asking if that's okay with you. Sexual harassment is rampant, you report it and nobody cares. Just overall an unprofessional place. Hire people with not even a GED, criminals, and just flat out anyone. Also, no recognition for top performers or middle management (tier 2). Ideal for anyone just needing a quick paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just hire everyone and their mom (literally), stop just wanting to make Google happy. Listen to your employees' needs and wants.

    Pros

    None, low pay, micromanagement at its worst. AUX codes on the phone are enough to drive anyone insane.

    Cons

    Bed bugs, romper room like environment, too many teen aged employees, poor management. Even after you prove your skills advancement opportunities are low paying.

    Advice to Management

    Reward with cash not trinkets.
