I have been on hold for 1 hour and 39 minutes now and still counting. I have been taking screen shots of my phone just to report the final time later. This is ridiculous considering I came to Telus for professional service.
Were you not given an option for a callback? I had to call the other day and was given that option and had a callback in less than half an hour. I've been with telus six months and each of the 3 times I've called I was given that option.
See that would be great except for the fact your agents can't help with Web orders.. Well except for the web orders department who you can
1) Email (4-5 day wait)
2) LEave a voicemail (2 day wait)
3) Stay on the line and hope and prey (currently 1hr15m)
All because Canada post lost my order and for some g*d forsaken reason No one at telus but the Web order team can open an investigation with Canada post
Your link doesn't work.
I too am sitting on hold.
Perhaps instead of telling people to call at different times of day (that are likely inconvenient for them), Telus could look at their call volume patterns and staff accordingly.
They are only aggressive when getting customers to subscribe. Once you're a subscriber frustration sets in. The Chat feature is only a come on. Besides the wait times they will only direct you to a contact number for support and then another wait time is on the horizon. What a frustrating experience to be a Telus subscriber.
What I did after a few frustrating weeks was I used Text Messenger, explaining how long it takes to get through on phone. Then explained my problem. I received a quick response and my problem was fixed. Failing that, there is a form you can fill out to escalate your problem. I can't remember how I found the form, but google it. Hope this helps.
The link for chat doesn't work. I have been trying to contact support for three days, to no avail. Wait times are ridiculous. My lan line phone ...the battery dies after an hour on hold. Do I actually need to purchase another phone for a stronger battery just so I can be on hold for over an hour? Not acceptable.
On your computer visit https://www.telus.com/en/bc/support/contact-us?INTCMP=TcomFooter_contact_us there is a Live chat bottom right corner of the page. Enter your name, existing customer and the area of support. I just tried it an was instantly connected to a CSR rep. Guess luck of the draw.
