Sour Experience
Tele Sales Rep (Former Employee), Toronto, ONAugust 8, 2015
Pros: Co-workers. Close to Eglinton Station.
Cons: Payroll is shady. Tense environment.
Training was simple, straightforward and the first couple of weeks they help you settle in but it all goes downhill from there..quality control, for the most part is helpful yet at times overly demanding..the company lies about both employee discounts & commission and every paycheck brings about some kind of a nasty surprise. Most co-workers are nice. All in all, a largely negative atmosphere, management is either completely missing or overly controlling (NO MIDDLE GROUND)..good transitional option while you're looking for something else but don't expect to last more than a couple of months.

If youve always dreamed of being a telemarketter
Bell Outbound Telesales Representative (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONAugust 4, 2015
Pros: High commission for top sellers
Cons: Being a telemarketer
HR is useless. Management does nothing to resolve problems. Often you're left unsupervised when you need help or have questions. It's very draining to constantly be screamed at because "it's a sunday" or "I hate Bell". Afternoon shifts. You're allowed to use your phones on the floor unless the VP or CEO is in, then you're fired on the spot without warning. I left because of an issue with HR not resolving innappropriate workplace behaviour as they had promised.

Don't work here if you want to get paid
TSR (Former Employee), HamiltonJuly 31, 2015
Pros: Easy to get hired.
Cons: Withheld paychecks.
This company continuously with elf either half paychecks or in some cases full paychecks. When you asked about it they would say they'd get back to you in a couple days. And then 5 days later they'd cut you a cheque. Numerous claims have been made with the ministry of labour! If you expect to get paid hourly for the work you do. DON'T WORK HERE. If you do get a job be prepared to be missing money every time you get paid.

i hated this place.
Rogers Wireless Inbound Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJuly 2, 2015
it consumes your life. worked 9 hours a day 5-6 days a week, and if you don't make sales they send you home. you never see your comission and the managers choose who they want to like. it's a horrible place to work. and say goodbye to your weekends.

Just not for me
Inbound Sales Representative (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJune 21, 2015
Pros: Paid training, friendly environment
Cons: More sales oriented than customer service oriented.
typical day: log in to systems and get ready for onslaught of call from customers. Resolve conflicts and try to make sales. Coworkers are great, everyone is super friendly. Managers and Team Leaders are cool too, for the most part. Some people do really well here, making like 3000 dollar bonuses in a month (for real) however this job was a little bit too sales-oriented for me.

a face paced environment, co-workers are amazing
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Hamilton, ONMay 21, 2015
This position is very fast paced... everyone works together to keep the job fun, with the high call volume it is hard to keep morale high. The most enjoyable part of the job is the other agents I work with.

Lazy
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Trenton, ONMay 18, 2015
The atmosphere with the coworkers I was blessed with, was amazing. It made the job enjoyable. The management was completely unorganized. No room for advancement unless you had some sort of personal or outside connection with managers. Bonuses were never paid out. Too much stress for sales

Not a Good experience
Sales Agent (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 10, 2015
Pros: Salary a bit better than other places, close to amneties
Cons: long hours, unrealistic targets, rude management
The Campaign started with the usual sweet talk.
making us feel it was an amazing place to work and friendly and understanding and all..but after training started what i would call a torture. No work ethics among manager, Quality coat or Team leaders. I felt i was more capable of doing their job for them.

They had very unrealistic conditions which would be achievable if you had superpowers.

Management is slow and unresponsive. no proper ethic. wont return calls on time, wont give much details when asked, wont even have courtesy to follow up on issues but just reach a verdict on their own.

Productive and competative environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee), HamiltonMarch 23, 2015
Pros: friendly and supportive environment
Cons: short hours and low insentive
We are given limited time offers and we have to promote them while the sale targets need to be met. Management is always encouraging the employees to create opportunity in every call we take. The co-workers are very enthusiastic and motivating while the hardest part of the job is time management and unsatisfied customers.

Not a fun environment
Telephone Sales Agent (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONJanuary 13, 2015
My experience at S&P Data was not a good one. It was everything that makes call center work have a bad reputation: management that cares only about numbers and not the people, absolutely no realistic room for advancement, and the constant reinforcement from everywhere that you are just another number in their job farm and can/will be easily replaced if necessary.

Fun to be with employees
Telesales Representative (Current Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 13, 2014
Pros: free coupons.
Cons: cutting of hours
Take in large volume of calls everyday I've learned how to deal with different type of customers and how to be patient in a professional manner. The management was okay. Co workers are great. Hardest part of the job is if you didn't hit the sales they will cut your hours and send you home after four hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is having to spend time with great co workers.

what a joke!!!
inbound (Former Employee), Trenton, ontNovember 6, 2014
Cons: everything
Where do I start!! First week of training, shifts got changed, not once but three times!! They don't care that you have a family, the hours suck, the pay sucks. They stick you in a so called classroom, with someone that calls them self a teacher, who has no clue about the company policies, let alone knowing how to teach others. Then..they throw you onto the floor, with one "helper" per 30 people! They screwed up royally on the pays..you hand in your direct deposit form, they mail you your pay. You quit, you have to fight for 3 weeks to get your last pay..and not without threatening with the labour board. THIS COMPANY IS A JOKE!!
