Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 15 February 2018
The pay was decent but the job is basically a 100% sales job, Your goal is to "sell bell" if you aren't interested in sales this is not the place for you. People and management were very pleasant to work with. But way too many shifts and hours were way too long. Absolute torture as it eats all of your time. But generally decent job if you're interested in sales and don't mind long hours!
Commission structure to the pay.
Too many Shifts, Long hours means no life outside work, Basically the bell store/virgin mobile store.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Duncan, BC – 13 February 2018
The management was lazy, often taking many breaks despite only being allowed one 1/2 hour break in their shift. Workplace consisted of abusing amounts of gossip and some of my co workers would actively make moves to try and have other co workers fired. There was some backstabbing, sales were being "stolen" and all round a poor training system. On the bright side if you can tolerate all of that, there can be some good money in it for selling phones on contract.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grand Falls-Windsor, NL – 12 February 2018
Working at the source provided a great opportunity to engage with customers and create unique solutions to their everyday needs. Honestly loved the team I worked with and can vouch for the company being great to work with.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) – Chelmsford, ON – 7 February 2018
One of the most enjoyable parts of this job is being able to see and experience new and upcoming technology as its released. A typical day working at The Source involves aiding customers to find whatever they are looking for including wireless cell services and home services such as television and internet.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Goderich, ON – 7 February 2018
This workplace provided an overload of courses and knowledge check. Very strict rules, singled people out, no chance of promotion. Perfect for students and those who want a high tempo work environment. Not for those who don't work well with others or with strict deadlines and quotas. The manager talked openly about how the company does not care about it's employees, as we are just a number to them. Plenty to do during the day but very slow at night. The best part of the job was the easy commission.
Really enjoyed my time working at The Source. Good environment, good staff, interesting mix of people that walked through the doors. Time spent after helping customers and completing daily tasks was spent talking about technology, gaming, movies, etc.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 26 January 2018
I like my job at the Source, but this position is only for you if you enjoy constantly being rated by your manager and district manager. They expect unrealistic results from all staff and will write you up if you do not constantly perform above results. Multiple months of my employment, my coworkers and I performed above target and were told we need to have higher results than we had. The enjoyment on the job is based entirely on who you are scheduled with. If you are fortunate enough to have good coworkers, then you will like your job here. If you are not, the job is absolutely miserable from start to finish.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Perth, ON – 17 January 2018
The Source is a fantastic and supportive company to work for. They provide excellent benefits even for part time employees. The hours are flexible (within reason) and the management on both store level and higher is very supportive. It's an excellent place to work if you've got the drive to do it.
Bell Employee discount, excellent health insurance and benefits.
Variable scheduling, can uave high pressure quotas.
The bosses suck and only care about the numbers but the co workers are great

Receptionist and Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 23 December 2017
I've learned a lot over the years and I'm happy to say, with my experience and knowledge of the company it has given me the opportunity to implement those skills in any environment. I was able to grow as an individual and as part of a team, I got along with the entire staff and it was never a dull moment. The management was very respectful and was very resourceful. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with our clients both face to face and over the phone, I enjoy making the customer happy and satisfying their needs.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 10 December 2017
Spent each and every day trying to be at the top of the sales ladder nation wide. Management was your leader that had all the answers to any and every question pertaining to the job. Directly involved with all new cellular and in home technology.
Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 13 November 2017
Always enjoyed working there, however the hours were too much for a full time student like myself (had me doing full time hours even though I was a part-timer). Very supportive when it comes to asking for help with something.
As my first experience , I couldn’t ask for better . In these past 3-4 years I’ve learned a lot about customer service , leadership and especially about sales. I was hired at the age of 16, being the youngest one there, I’ve been best salesman in the district in 2015-2016.
