Tony mentioned, "2 months ago, I called Bell to Cancel my Fibe TV services. After a long drawn out call it was done. Yesterday I noticed that I was still getting billed for the TV services. I called and they said there was no record that I cancelled. After 5 minutes of discussing, I was resigned that I would not be able to prove, that I cancelled the service. So I just said, then please cancel it now, and send me an email as proof that I cancelled, so I don't have to go through this again. For the next hour the "retention agent" gave me the absolute most weaselly runaround, pitching other plans, and other ways to save the service, and I just kept repeating " Please just cancel my TV service " . I begged, I pleaded, and he just kept at it, like his life depended on my not cancelling. Finally I asked to speak to his manager, so I could lodge a complaint about him, and his refusal to cancel my service. He kept me on hold for 30 minutes, checking in every 5 or 10 minutes to say he could not find a supervisor to pass my call to. I finally gave up, and am thus posting this very negative review. He also told me " I am in the Philippines, and you should feel good about Bell, because our local provider, is even worse than Bell ". I thought that was a very unusual argument to make me feel better about how bad he was treating me. I don't hold any malice toward him, as he was doing what Bell taught him, to do everything possible to obstruct and prevent a customer from leaving. All my frustration is directed toward Bell."
Material Handler/Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"Very hostel work environment, Unreliable scheduling, no family life, unsafe workplace, no breaks . You are asked to do very unsafe task for example you are to reach in and scrap glue ring from press roller while the machine in running. Work 12 hour a shift, 13 days straight with no ventilation in the summer at all. Management is very inept about what is going on with day to day operations. Cons: no breaks"
Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"really bad place to work, the health insurance is by far the worst I have had anywhere I have worked, if you do a good job nobody takes notice and nobody cares, terrible place to work. Management tries to screw over employees on pay every single pay period"
Bruno A Operator (Former Employee) says"Co-workers for the most part were good, too many supervisors/managers, president of the company wasn't around enough. Pay was decent, some vacation offered. Average health insurance."
Former Employee - Customer Service Representative says"I worked at Community Fibre full-time for less than a year Cons: Work life balance, lack of support or guidance, too much expected of too little of staff, company that takes advantage of the vulnerable e.g. elderly, disabled, people who can't speak great English."
