Little to no room for advancement as well as bad pay
Assisstant Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 August 2014
A typical day of work is trying to sell cell phones to every single customer that walks in the door, whether they want it or not, and try to overcome objections. I learned a lot about product because I was surrounded by it, but you have to try to learn. Most knowledge isn't taught properly. Co-workers are typically awesome. Working at the Source in a large city means you get to work with a lot of people from different stores and most of them are fun and nice. The management is constantly changing and inconsistent from person to person. Rules and requirements differ between managers due to bad and inconsistent training. The hardest part of the job is dealing with rude and negative customers as well as the terrible pay and benefits.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON15 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!
Pros
Commission structure to the pay.
Cons
Too many Shifts, Long hours means no life outside work, Basically the bell store/virgin mobile store.

Not very professional
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Duncan, BC13 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.
Pros
Can make good money
Cons
