    I have been working at TELUS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing so far, since they bought Voxpro is only getting worse

    Cons

    -They bought Voxpro and since that, this is only getting worse than before. For example:They took away our Christmas bonus (250 euros).
    -We don´t have any benefits at all, no sick days, no health care...
    -So Voxpro/Telus has opened 3 different offices in the last 2 years and has no money to give us the Xmas bonus, health insurance, sick days and so on...
    -We are continuously being watched (time that you take to go to the bathroom and so on). This isn´t human at all.
    -We were promised a bonus (400 euros) for doing our productivity and 2 days before pay day, they told us that they didn´t have money to pay us.
    -On that same day, all the big management had a party outside where they announced the fantastic "lake" that they are going to build outside

    Advice to Management

    -If you don´t change, half of your people will leave you within months
    -Promote intelligent people who deserve it and not your family or friends

    Contract Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TELUS (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    HR interview which was really a screening followed by a group interview where I had to present on a topic that was emailed a couple of days in advance. The hiring manager was absolutely horrid and the other manager was on the call who obvoiusly seemed like he was twiddling his thumb through out! the agenda was 30 mins presentation followed by Q&A and then 20 mins of behavior/situation based questions. The manager raved about company ettiquettes to promptly respond to a candidate within a couple of days letting them know whether an offer was forthcoming and if not, cite reasons etc. After a few days I followed up with HR who acted like a jerk and asked me to contact the hiring manager directly for feedback. I emailed numerous times but to date have not recievd a reply (obviously i knew i didnt get the role) one thing is for sure, at Telus, the future is not necessarily friendly!!
