Bell Sales Representative and Customer services (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – August 21, 2015
I had great managers and learnt different methods of management skills and how to develop productivity between team members and motivate them to be proactive towards their responsibilities.
I learnt how to be more flexible and be more customer focus and pay attention to their needs and the better knowledge about company strategy, cultures and products the more confident I will towards client demands.
I had fantastic work experience with my co-workers and develop more sales and negotiation skills .
The hardest part of this position was when the product discontinue or have some limitation and the customer is enquired about it, so I should follow up the request and liaise between customer and company.
The fun part of it was to learn between different devices and gain more knowledge about different product and introduce them to customers and turn them to potential clients.
Director (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – August 20, 2015
A typical work day consisted of: - A staff meeting first thing in the morning to plan the day. - replying/sending emails regarding account/customer issues. - following up with requests sent the previous day. - one on one sit downs with team members during the work day.
I learned how to use my problem solving skills when resolving complex issues with corporate accounts and how to work well within a team, It was easy to be a team player there because the culture at BELL is exactly that, help each other and be professional. This position was a perfect fit for me and I enjoyed utilizing my strengths and learning to improve on my weaknesses, The hardest part of the job would have to the pressure of hitting you targets every quarter.

Dart Evo Technician (Former Employee) – North York, ON – August 11, 2015
Bell will switch your schedule without warning and will not take into account any appointments or previous engagements that you are committed to. The company is so strict that it is better to call in sick than to be a minute late. The culture in the company is very hostile and discourages any sort of camaraderie.
your schedule can change at any time without notice

Assoc Director, Business Development (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – July 29, 2015
After MANY years I decided to leave. Bell treated me so well. I have a great pension and the pay was on par with the going rates in the market. The stoggy Telco culture still persists for the most part although in some areas not so much. Depending on where you work, you could find yourself on the bleeding edge of a changing market with brand new, exciting technology or be stuck in a really stale part of the company where they just want to make sure that the lights are kept on. Consumer/TV/Mobility are kings at Bell, everywhere else not so much.
If looking to leave and join a startup, be prepared for culture shock.
Good pay, normal working hours, employee discount on services
