Field Support Technician (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 January 2018
No work life balance, you practically go home to sleep to resume back to the cotton field the next 6 hours. You are expected to complete a job within an unreasonable stipulated time including the drive time. You can't plan ahead, you can be forced to work even on a day off, no weekend off, no family time.
The slave masters are called managers, whose major goal is to make sure their numbers looks right. For this kind of job that involves many risks and yet no health benefit until you work 5+ years to qualify for it. Quality and quaitity of job done is comparatively low to job pay.

Managing an environment means you must be responsible for the well being of every individual that enters your location. As a manager we are always teaching our staff to take ownership and know the product to be able to sell it to there best ability.

I joined bell as a New-Grad within their B2B sales division, and it was a fantastic experience to start my career. The management was very committed to personal development, preached work-life balance, and were easily approachable. The people that worked there were amazing and very friendly.

Sales & Technical Support (Current Employee) – 100 Borough Drive, Scarborough – 25 January 2018
This company would be great if they advanced people that have achieved high results and commendations. I have applied for jobs numerous times in 7 years without answer and I am still working the midnight shift in the call centre.
BUSINESS TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 January 2018
We face some challenges as Customers are not all identical.. however it helps to strengthen your troubleshooting skills and build good communication skills within your team. The most enjoyable part of this job is working with various new and old technologies on various platforms.
Household Loyalty (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 8 January 2018
Overall, the job was a good one. The pay was decent if you were on the phones, however I found out quickly that if they pulled you off the phones for training, you were paid a smaller wage, as well as your vacation days were paid at a smaller rate. It was a bit frustrating.
Residential Technician (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 6 January 2018
Worked here for just around 3 years. Job is interesting and you meet really cool people. Once you get used to the work you can recognize the big-company politics of being a number and how they just want you to bang out tickets...
Work/life balance was a struggle as they had MANY overtime hours to give.. Working a 10-9 shift then getting forced in for an 8-5 the next day after a 4 day streak is exhausting.. It's what made me leave.
Winter season is tough to work through but if you dress smart you'll be fine. Job is tasking but tolerable and I've heard horror stories of bad manager but I've never had any issues in my experience (although I have had colleagues who share their bad experiences with their managers at the time).
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – London, ON – 5 January 2018
Bell Canada is a demanding employer but gives back as much to it's employees as much as anyone can expect. Benefits, bonuses, ergonomic workstations, extra training and career advancement are all part of the positive work environment.
Technician (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 5 January 2018
Typical day entails driving a randomly assigned vehicle to a customer's house and fixing their problem with little to no assistance. Strong problem solving skills required. Weather is often uncomfortable.
Management is .... not great. Their primary concern is numbers as your numbers reflect on their bonuses, so be prepared for a high stress environment.
For the first 5 years you will work every single weekend and evening shift. Forced overtime makes having a family life difficult.
With minimum wage at $14/h, the pay is quite poor for the first 5 years for what you have to endure.
Sales Leader (Former Employee) – Leader, SK – 5 January 2018
The work environment was incredible and they training ongoing, this job was paid on commission, since i am highly skilled at influencing people i was provided sizable paychecks for my work. This gave me a new found understanding of what hard work means the difference between working for your paycheck and my actions being shown in my pay.
Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 January 2018
Didn't expect such backlash from your fellow citizens of Canada. This is where I almost lost hope in humanity. Either those who can afford cable tv are brainless or simply waiting for someone to smack some sense into them.
