Field Sales Consultant / Lead Hand (Former Employee) – Southwestern Ontario – 9 October 2013
If you have no issues with screwing with peoples lives and their credit ratings then you will fit right in. This company is brutal through and through. We were trained to steal. That being said I couldn't do this job anymore knowing how bad people were being ripped off.
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 January 2017
A typical day involves promoting safety which involves demonstrating safe driving practices and using all PPE. Working professionally in installing and repairing all BELL services. Workplace involves a lot of problem solving skills, working under pressure, teamwork, being honest and discipline and energetic. We have a very supportive and reliable management team who constantly communicate with technicians to ensure their safety and also if any potential difficulty in doing the job. The hardest part of the job is maintaining a proper and healthy family/ work life balance. The most enjoyable and rewarding part of this job, being a level5 technician, is see the sense of satisfaction, relief , happiness resulting with smiles on the customers' faces after solving a prolong issue they were having.

Owner/Manager (Current Employee) – Digby, NS – 16 January 2017
If you work for the company maybe, but I was always a Contractor. Benefits are the Demo's, a few trips, and nothing else. I got paid once a month, we were very sales driven, and it was difficult to meet the expected out comes in the rural markets in the later years. As competition increased, they keep trying to squeeze more our of their people for less. Telecommunications continues to be competitive and limited rewards.
Pro's Free Cell and Internet Demo Lines, a Few trips.
Call Centre Agent (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 21 February 2017
A typical day at work was always interesting because of the location (St Laurent Mall). I got to learn how to work at a call center, the basic infos. It helped because without this 1st job I probably wouldn't have the rogers call center job. But it wasn't always organized, my schedual was made on the week of, i didn't enjoy not knowing it in advance. The management weren't giving me enough hours even though they barely had available workers. The hardest part of my job was to find out I was schedualed a few days before & the most enjoyable part of my job was working inside the mall. They didn't really have a culture it was a brand new store.
Logistics Attendant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 March 2017
Great place! a lot of learning opportunities and room for advancement. Co-workers and managers were very helpful during the probationary period. Workplace culture is calm during most of the time but can be intense during the mornings and certain period. The hardest part of the job is waking up at 5 am. The most enjoyable part is working together as a team.
Managment and business direction/rules/process change without consultation or notice

poor compensation, lack focus on ensuring success of their employees and looking after them, high churn in customers and employees including top and middle management
Field Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 February 2017
Bell has an amazing line of products and services that are incredibly fascinating which make it easy to become easily enthusiastic about the position. The incentives and benefits help alleviate some of the stress the position has to off and with friendly co-workers and management makes for a great environment to be apart of.
Team Lead Inside Sales (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 January 2017
Helped prioritize work schedules and delegated assignments and developed solutions as part of quality management team. Easily establish rapport with people of all ages, cultures, and beliefs. Analyzed economic conditions, business trends and potential markets. Excellent motivational, planning and communication skills, with proven results building winning teams that exceed objectives. Technically oriented - resourceful in problem solving and strategic planning to alleviate problems and took initiative in evaluating opportunities for team members.
Field Sales Agent (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 1 February 2017
A company focused on squeezing the maximum from individuals in the short-term. High turnover and not for the long-term career hunter. Unreasonable expectations of early starts and late finishes with very poorly coordinated support from incompetent management. Ineffective training from inexperienced individuals far too focused on buzz-words and the quick 'sale and run' than any genuine customer focus. Good money can be made by the sharp-minded but only at the expense of a personal life and without any real regard for the customer's true needs.
Residential Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 7 December 2016
Working at Bell Canada was one of the most exciting and fun jobs I've had. The staff was always pleasant to work with. We were treated very well in terms of benefits and commissions. I would have to say the most enjoyable part of our job was touring the province in order to promote our residential services at big events such as the "Jazz Fest", the "Festival d'été" in Quebec City, and other large scale events across the province as well as small pop-up kiosks in malls which we would call "mall tours". When we would travel, all our expenses were paid including hotels, food, and $0.45/km traveled.
Salesman (Former Employee) – various – 5 January 2017
Having worked at Bell over three separate times this is the worse. Bell 'sub-contracts' the function to PCS who is the employer and the culture is cutthroat for numbers , not listening to feedback on locations, and just simple bad management in this organizational matrix situation. Bell employees have priority to your sales and lost commissions and reported but nothing done.
Good entry position to see if you are a 'sale-person' but anyone with experience would not put up with the situation
Technician (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 19 February 2017
Below average starting pay with a decent pay raise per 1048 hours worked. Not enough training provided and you are thrown into the field on your own without much experience. You are a number with this company, not a name. It is unionized but there are so many loop holes in the agreement that make this a "barely" unionized company. There are some perks to the job (clothing, boots, work phone etc.) but you will be working 6-7 days a week and your 8 week schedule can and will be changed on you. Say goodbye to weekends.
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Guelph, ON – 15 January 2017
This is a great job opportunity for young students but not something one should seek as a permanent career. There is maximum salary set that you can never surpass and the commission structure is frequently being changed to make sales less lucrative. The company says it likes to promote within and you can make it to head office but that is untrue for a large portion of the scenarios. Essentially Bell likes to think up new ways for workers to DO MORE while being PAID LESS.
Field Technician (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 March 2017
I enjoy working alone, meeting new people, working outside. I learned about how the telephone, iptv and dsl systems work. Management is great, always there for me when I need help. Coworkers can be quite negative about working more than the scheduled hours on a daily basis but all in all we all need the money anyways. Hardest part of the job is maintaining a social life due to many hours.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 10 August 2016
As a commission sales driven culture working here tends to be cut throat and a bit underhanded at times. Management is extremely top heavy. When sales targets aren't being met the CEO will berate the marketing team who in tern will berate the national managers who will turn around and etc, The problem being that the anger flows down but the explanations never made it back up as was the case in Alberta when the oil field crashed and no one was spending money.
On the plus side they do offer a decent training program, benefits package, and competative commissions structure.
Technician (Former Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 2 December 2016
Good pay, advancement based on local branch sometimes will not happen for many years. Management not very interactive, just look at numbers. Inconsistent hours, on call for up to 6 days a week, no weekends.
Field Sales Representative - Lead Hand (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 25 March 2017
There was no work life balance and at the end of the day you were just an employee number to management. The winters were exceptionally harsh and we didnt even have proper branded clothing or working conditions to ensure minimum requirements for working in the cold. We would have to leave our cars running and jump into it every 20 minutes or so just to make sure we werent frozen.
Client Representative (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 5 November 2016
In a typical day, I would sell products and services to clients providing the benefits they require as well as going to the needs of the business. Throughout the day I would complete various administrative duties including respond to 30 or more incoming calls from customers. I'd assist with new and existing service orders, handle all inquires, questions, complaints and emails. I also provided strong customer service and resolved customer issues.
Salary and Benefits are great if you get the right position
Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 28 March 2017
Great place to work if you are in the right position. Salary and benefits very generous, especially the sales commission Mostly contract work and short term employment. Great room for advancement if employed in the right position.
