I got to experience the CL Tel culture as a contractor before being fortunate enough to join the team full time. The dynamic among the team is almost like family.
As a Field Technician, I enjoy the variety and constant growth my job provides. I get to work with the latest technology and deal with different customers every day.
CL Tel is a fun and exciting place to work. Being a member of the CL Tel team feels more like being part of a work family than an employee of the company.
CL Tel stresses the importance of a healthy work life balance and allows for flexibility which is very important to me as a wife and mother of three.
I started working for CL Tel in 1998 as an installation technician. I immediately sensed strong family values and was overwhelmed by how welcoming everyone was.
Currently, I am the NOC Supervisor, and we have a strong team of co-workers that can respond to customer requests, troubles, and deadlines in a quick and professional manner.
There are so many great things about CL Tel, but a couple that come to mind are the culture and collaboration.
I love that I get to work around positive people that keep me motivated and inspired to work and better myself. Everyone here shares the same vision and is dedicated to our mission.
Working at CL Tel is great! It’s a family-oriented environment, and we’re always involved in community activities. I would have to say that every day is something different, it never gets boring or routine.
We are very progressive in technology, cutting edge services and products. The fact that people retire from CL Tel after 40+ years would indicate what kind of great place it is to work.
