Telecommunication Technician (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 December 2013
Everyday you come in to work at a dispatching "shop" where you pick up your vehicle and dispatch on one of your many install/repair jobs. Management are nice and friendly until your numbers are not meeting the criteria. You get paid hourly and you start low benefits are lucrative and substantial. Worst part of the job is climbing poles in the winter time which only often in pole designated cities places and neighbourhoods. Best part is the independency of your load and your appointed vehicle.
IT Application Manager (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 September 2017
The work was always interesting, although demanding at times. Compensation was very good, and hours were flexible. Working at the office and at home made it easier for a good work/life balance. The work environment was great and the team was very supportive. Management was always very supportive with career goals.

people are very friendly , and have a very positive and happy environment . I learned that bell focus on development and employee appreciation and customer experience . Management are very helpful and supportive . The hardest part of the job is the shift and weekend rotation . the most enjoyable part is team brain storming and outings .
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 13 September 2017
Overall, being hired as a sales representative was a regrettable experience. I cannot however blame Bell for outsourcing their door to door outreach as I would never want to undertake such a task again myself. In short, I would strongly discourage anyone from taking such a position in the future.
Lunch at different places everyday, and getting to see a lot of the GTA.
Senior Planning Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 September 2017
Good reputable company which provides good benefits but very low salaries. High job security. Company is very big therefore very messy ( no clear job responsibilities, a lot of overlaps in job tasks with other team members). Weak one team value...
Agent de service à la clientèle (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 8 September 2017
The job at the head office takes a lot of patience and knowledge but the team work is great and my boss makes it enjoyable! I have been at Bell for 8 years and was able to get to this level by working real hard and prooving my value every day.
Sales Representative-Management (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 4 September 2017
In my time working for Bell (7 years) I found that they would constantly set stretch goals as targets that were near impossible for some stores to achieve (e.g. a small store in Barrhaven having the same monthly quota as Rideau Centre) and would then reprimand the managers for not attaining them. The best way to work for Bell is to strive for mediocrity. If you do not perform you will be let go, if you excel they will give you more work and responsibility without paying you for the new job you are doing, and reprimand you if you have difficulty and stall your career if you refuse to do the assigned tasks. Even when I did excel and hit all my quotas for 6 months consecutively and was recognized among the top ten employees in Canada, I was laid off when my store closed because I was pregnant and they did not want to fire someone who hadn't hit a quota in 3 years to have an empty space for a year.
The benefits are great, their mental health hotline is exceptional, RRSP with matched contribution is wonderful, but if you work full time there is no work life balance, there is work. My days off I was on call and would be on my work phone whenever my store needed me. If you decide to work for Bell, understand it will become your life, and no matter how hard you work for them and how well you do you are always dispensable the moment you become inconvenient.
This is a review covering 3 branches of companies owned and operated by Bell having worked from part time sales associate to management
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 31 August 2017
I loved working at bell because it went hand in hand with my school schedule plus the pay is really good when you count for the commission. They have lots of benefits and the management is really good and give you all the tools to help you succeed.
Directeur adjoint - Contrôle des effectifs (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 31 August 2017
Chez Bell on le dit souvent la seule constance est le changement. Une entreprise qui veut toujours être devancé la compétition et être le leader dans tous les sphères d'activités.
Donc nous devions toujours prêt relever de nouveau défi, tenter d'innover, et s'ajuster au nouveau besoin ou nouveau objectif.
Bell m’a permis d'apprendre à bien: * communiquer et négocier efficacement avec tous les niveaux hiérarchiques et les partenaires internes et externes. *à informer et à soutenir tous mes collègues dans l'entreprise * la capacité à établir et à maintenir un esprit de collaboration avec différents intervenants
Aujourd'hui je peux affirmer que peu contribuer au succès d'une entreprise... Alors donné moi la chance de vous le prouvez à tous les jours dans votre entreprise
Dealing with customers and co-workers best part, bad everything else
Field Technician (Former Employee) – Collingwood, ON – 31 August 2017
If you are looking for bad training and poor mentorship look no further. Three week training of looking at slides and listening to a trainer that thinks he's gods gift to the company. Drove 150 kms for three weeks and was only compensated 300$ for travelling allowance, was told I'd be given 42 cents per km each day. Had 3 days of riding around with an experienced tech and then forced out on my own. Constantly monitored by my supervisor in the morning, with GPS tracking. Was questioned and badgered for going to the bathroom in the morning and accused of misappropriation. Probation extended for really no apparent reason. If you are stuck on a job and take to long, you will always be put down and assumed you've done something wrong, no positive reinforcement.
tools, minimal supervision, good co-workers
Poor management, long work weeks, Supervisor watching your every move on GPS, Poor training
