Great management support, excellent pay, meritocracy
Tier Two CSR (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 June 2016
Best thing about working for Dell was the meritocracy culture. If you worked hard and performed well you and your team saw benefits such as prime shifts even if you were all freshly trained. If you sat back and rode your tenure you got the bad shifts.
Typical day at work was answering phones all day. Most calls were straightforward "My internet doesn't work, I have spyware, my X component is broken" but occasional there were challenging calls with unique issues.
Most co-workers got along well with the meritocracy culture. They knew that if they worked hard they would see the benefits and so people pulled together to make it happen.
My manager was excellent. I can't speak for others as I had the same one for my entire time there except right at the end. Probably the most unprofessional manager I've ever had.
Great pay, great schedule, meritocracy, good managers

Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 May 2016
This job i can personally can work very well for those who enjoy the sales cultures and, talking with their clients on a day to bases for solutions in the computer world. If you are a curious person and want to try something new i would be careful about applying because it is very fast paced and entitles you to also finish your work on your laptop at home. If you love making deals and so on this is the job for you, but if your someone looking for a different direction and like to go into the office cubical life just be prepared for a fast paced environment and yes dell has an awesome atmosphere among colleagues, but that comes down to your adaptability or suitability to the environment. If you dont work with the culture of dell well then expect a lot of stress from the position. Either then that It is over all a good job for students out of school seeking for work and so on.
Great Culture among colleagues
Work comes with you to home, may surprise you for what you signed up for

Technical Support - Hardware Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 October 2016
This job was a very high stress, high pressure position. It entailed taking phone calls all day to help clients with an average call handle time of 7 mins per call where you had to solve the clients issue and move onto the next call. Documentation of a detailed log of the issue, actions taken and resolve and recording the call was also required to be finished within this time frame.
Technical Printer Warranty Analyst (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 7 July 2016
Great company with very good benefit. Compensation a little lower and industry standard. Training provided to perform job was very good and professional. Dell allowed us to give preferential work hours.
Marketing Sr. Adviser (Former Employee) – Not Disclosed – 13 December 2015
Nice place, great compensation and work-life balance. Superb Colleagues, will go out of their way to help. Not all managers are equal. Some are amazing to work with, some just not good enough for the job entrusted to them. Some will protect their non-performing teams and others will throw you to the wolves even if you are doing as much as you can in the circumstances. These bad managers float around different departments for years, promoting their own cohorts and trying to build their own fiefdoms. They are always the reason why I have seen many great workers leave. No one will say it upfront though. No point, you see... They go around and spread the discomfort everywhere.
Great People, Great benefits, Awesome Growth prospects
24 x 7 on the job due to the WW nature of the responsibility
Customer Support Technician (CST) (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 17 April 2014
Entry level positions, little opportunity to advance if you're in Canada, even if you get EMC's Proven Professional Certifications. Management is inexperienced and sloppy, micromanaged from the United States by a "Leadership Team" that is based outside of Boston. Everyone is a temp contractor, they promise to hire people on, but it takes years (7+ on average). No raises, health benefits, sick days, vacation is 4% calculated on each pay.
Associate System Engineer I (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 April 2016
