Stressful work with lots of driving
Former Field service technician (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON8 November 2017
Very poor pay comparing the amount of hours you have to work out side ( rain, snow, cold, dark). Very poor management. Assigned jobs one after another even after end of the shift. Lots of driving without any incentive.
Pros
Bad pay
Cons
Long hours

busy, hands on, and they supplied all tools , equipment, work-wear. .
Technician (Former Employee) –  Cobden, ON7 November 2017
Customer service was fun to be involved in and being able to fix and troubleshoot issues for them I took pride in. All techs and managers took part in weekly meetings making sure safety was in the fore front of everyone's minds. They also included updates or question taking to make sure we were all up to speed. The job was very challenging as it involved 80% troubleshooting and locating junction boxes that were not always correctly identified ( more difficult in winter when they are buried by snow in ditches) . Also in the valley where I worked there was not always the best service , so using the work phone and keeping it in service was difficult. My typical day I drove around a bell technician truck keeping it organized with all tools, materials , wiring boxes, etc. I would arrive at job sights and perform installations or identify and repair problems with the services from the network to inside the customers home .

Good place to work if you're an aggressive Sales Person
Sales, Service & Product Specialist (Former Employee) –  North Bay, ON4 November 2017
Retail hours. Aggressive Sales and pushy management can make most days very stressful in this environment. Constantly having to watch over your shoulder so no one steals a sale from you. Very demanding.
Pros
Decent incentives
Cons
Trying to reach unrealistic sales numbers

High customer service experience and independent working skills
Technician (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON30 October 2017
Guaranteed 48 hours per week with everyday interesting examples of electronic service installation and maintenance. You work mostly independently and can rely only on your own understanding of the installation process. However if you are stuck manager could give you some hints or send a team helper to assist you during time interval given for a job.
Pros
good hours and work environment
Cons
no work/life balance, shifts are assigned to you

Soul sucking micro managed position
Sales Representative - Small Business Solutions (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON26 October 2017
Bell does not care about their customers or their employees. The mindset is based completely on the bottom line and greed.
My personal manager bugged all 10 of us on an hourly basis to ask "did you close anything yet".

As a remote worker, there was little administrative or technical support.

Had to follow up on every customer install because had no faith that it it would get done properly..

Culture is horrible.

I had a terrible experience working with Bell Canada. They treated you like a number and did not care for your health or safety. DO NOT WORK HERE IF YOU DO NOT HAVE TO!

Decent salary, stressful work
Proven problem solver and resolution specialist (Current Employee) –  Nanaimo, BC24 October 2017
Decent job, inbound call centre so dealing with customers who are frustrated 99.9% of the time can be mentally taxing. relatively high turnover of staff confirms this fact. Good enough wage for entry level work.
Pros
Accomodating
Cons
Mentally draiining

Well organised and professional company. Bell provides the best job security. your feel free to apply your knowledge and come up with your results. but the worst thing it gives the poorest balance between life and work as you can not plan anything to go with your family.

about managers and benifits
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Windsor, ON19 October 2017
The managers will treat you like a slaves. And there are no benefits for the field service technician. If you want to become a permanent employee you has to work for 30 years. Waste of time lot of stress. More health problems.Less poor health benifits.

Repair Telecommunications technician, IPTV Install (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 October 2017
Bell doesn't care about people. No recognition. No appreciation. Constant incredible amount of pressure. Incompetent and ignorant people in all departments. Looks like no one cares about technicians and customers. Everyone just delegates responsibilities, no one wants to take initiative and responsibility.
Profit and profit only.
