Former Field service technician (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 8 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.
busy, hands on, and they supplied all tools , equipment, work-wear. .
Technician (Former Employee) – Cobden, ON – 7 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 .
Senior Dedicated National Client Consultant (Former Employee) – 100 Dundas St. London On – 6 November 2017
My 19 years at Bell was very rewarding in the sense that I was able to work to excel and move forward into higher profile positions. Unfortunately, our office was closed - however - have no reservations of the experience I obtained.
Good place to work if you're an aggressive Sales Person
Sales, Service & Product Specialist (Former Employee) – North Bay, ON – 4 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.
Logistics Attendant (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 1 November 2017
This is pretty stupid that I can't continue without submitting a review on a old job of mine. My opinion is my own, if you want to know more about Bell and all it's wonderful job opportunities then use Google.
High customer service experience and independent working skills
Technician (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 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.
Sales Representative - Small Business Solutions (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 26 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..
Proven problem solver and resolution specialist (Current Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 24 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.
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 October 2017
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.
Senior Linux Administrator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 October 2017
The team is well trained and highly experienced. Good communication skills. Tasks like getting help with time sheets and access to critical systems are arranged within 24-48 hrs. Life work balance is fantastic.
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 19 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, ON – 13 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.
