Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 18 March 2017
Good place to work for sales associates, not a place to build a career. Basic wage and beats flipping burgers, plus the potential to make up to ~24$ and hour during Xmas time! Good place to learn alot if you see the value
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton – 13 March 2017
Worked for 3 years , started as sale associate and eventually got promoted to assistant manager. This promotion didn't give a good pay increase, and extra duties made it harder to meet commission quotas
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Courtenay, BC – 11 March 2017
I was always happy to come to work. My coworkers were like family to me. I always had fun at work. I learned so much from the 3 guys i worked with and especially from my boss.
It started out as a seasonal job but my manager decided to keep me for after the season ended because he believed I was capable of succeeding in the business as not only as an employer but part of their family. It was always a great day at work.
The hardest part of the job was memorizing all of the information that was crammed in our brain, but the most enjoyable part of the job was just going to work and to know I was going to make a sale and a friend.
good job and life balance as the schedule is flexible
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 March 2017
good job and life balance as the schedule is flexible seen co-workers fighting for sales management is motivating hardest part occurs only if you have no experience in customer talking and tackling most enjoyable part is that the learning atmosphere is good, if you make friends there
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 3 March 2017
Do not work here! I'm so upset I put so much time and effort into a place the claims to be family oriented and have a good work/life balance. Managers, Assistant Managers couldn't keep their jobs. Constantly replacing people or moving them to new locations without notice. Completely discriminatory against family life(having children, daycare etc), several female managers lost their jobs due to taking maternity leaves and trying to manage a work life balance that the company does not support. This led to termination of all female managers in my district, once they all passed the 6 months period from maternity leave. If you're a single male with no life, and don't mind terrible pay for high expectations, then this is for you!
Great customers, Great staff
Terrible pay, Terrible upper Management, lack of support, All about the sales
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 21 February 2017
While employed as a Customer Service Representative at The Source , I learned how to be a team player, as well as a punctual salesman. I used my time management skills to receive stock when I wasn't needed on the sales floor. A successful sale always led to a good day. Which happened to be both the hardest , and most enjoyable parts of the job. Working for The Source I learned the importance of caring for one another .
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 February 2017
Fun to work at. You get to meet different people everyday from different works of life. The Source has a decent commission structure for the sales associates. However, the working schedules could be better since they were really inconsistent.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 19 February 2017
they need to learn to listen to their employies more and not blindly trust one manager over the rest of the staff. They also will force you to sell phone plans to meet the quoda, and that will pressure you to pressure customers to get phones when you know they didn't come in for a phone and would be much happier leaving without one.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Orangeville, ON – 15 February 2017
Working at The Source was not a good experience what so ever. The management took all commissions and were not willing to train. The management would also favor other staff members and allow complacency.
Energetic environment especially during holiday season
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 7 February 2017
I was taken in as a seasonal employee to stock shelves and maintain order on the sales floor. When my interpersonal skills were noticed by the manager I was quickly moved from stocking to helping any and ever customer that walked in. As well I was being mentored by the assistant manager to cash customers out and improve their overall experience in the store. Interacting with the customers was the most enjoyable part, especially when I was able to meet their every need.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Acton, ON – 3 February 2017
To succeed at this job you must put the effort in to ask questions but also take the initiative to learn on your own. You must be able to remain motivated and be willing to put your full effort into satisfying customer needs.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 29 January 2017
You easily make $10 more every hour if you are willing to sell. That's all you gotta do. Great health benefits, health and safety top notch, just keep up with your management team and you will succeed :)
Sales Associate - Seasonal (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 January 2017
Decent job, i guess the only con would be the associates. Not very motivated on success or meeting their goals. But it is a Bell company, with decent pay, okay commission rates and fast paced environment.
Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 25 January 2017
Terrible upper management. No real process for onboarding. Interview process was filled with lies about the state of the company and their employees. No real direction (throw things at the wall and see what sticks). Very subjective way of viewing their employees. Favouritism is evident.
Good benefits, discounts on bell products
terrible company culture, wants "yes man/woman", no support
