Would NOT recommend working for this organization
Communications Consultant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 4, 2014
I was very excited to work at this organization and underwent an extremely vigorous hiring process to get the position only to find out that new ideas or innovations are not welcomed.

Toxic work environment where middle management is complacent and resistant to any change as they wait out their retirement and subsequent pension.

Extremely out of touch of what young professionals TODAY are looking for in a work environment.

The work was steady
Apprentice lineman and cable splicer (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 18, 2014
Pros: challanging work. working with great men
Cons: there were no cons
The work was steady. During my 14 years there, I had a verity of jobs. My favorite job was that of a laborer simply because every day was a new day and everyday brought a new challenge and no two days were the same. One day we would be caulking a vault and the next day we would build a cable manhole and the nest we would be looking for burnt underground street lighting wires. I worked with one Forman every day for 7 years and we became best friends. He taught me how to skillfully operate a verity of hand tools and machines, think five steps a head and what real team work was all about.

Professional and fast paced environment where multi tasking is important
Customer Service/Admin (Former Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 8, 2013
Pros: given the opportunity to experience different roles and duties.
Cons: many customers having their toronto hydro disconnected for non payment.
A call centre environment where I was required to answer inbound calls from Toronto Hydro customers and ensure customer satisfaction. Also, a place where I was able to improve in being able to multi task during my role in the administration department. The hardest part was dealing with customers escalated issues and ensuring they were satisfied by the end of the call. I enjoyed learning continuously.

Consulted and communicated with contractors, customers, departments and other parties involved in the planning and execution of projects. Management was amazing and organized and co-workers were always friendly and co-operative; willing to help if you had any questions.
