Fun place to work
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB29 May 2017
Friendly atmosphere. I loved working as a team as well as individual. Most enjoyable part was achieving the goals as it was commission based job. Hardest part was coping with the job and study together.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB23 May 2017
Working for the source is like being in high school all over again. Only the "popular" people get good treatment from management. the commission system is not worth the effort to sell.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 May 2017
A lot of opportunities to make good money, a bit of a boys club because of all the technology so it's difficult to break into as a girl. Owned by Bell so selling services not just goods.

Great experice
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Charlottetown, PE20 May 2017
This is a good job for meeting and interacting with new people. It is a comission based company so it keeps you wanting to be at your best.
There is consistently new gadgets to keep you entertained and with the latest devices.

Amazing community, work like a family, and treating customers with honesty and respect.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Moncton, NB10 May 2017
Fun, exciting, very loving atmosphere, tough targets but great sense of enjoyment from hitting said targets. Sometimes the months can be quiet and because of that you feel down. Just keep your chin up and work hard.
Pros
Bell discounts, good customer service
Cons
Steadily increasing targets relative to your hours worked and your skill level.

Good place to work while in school
ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 May 2017
Yes its a great place to be in while in school due to flexible work hours but the real problem in my eyes is in management they don't promote leaders and the people they do promote don't know how to lead and end up making the time you work with them not very enjoyable

Meh decent for a student, not a great career opportunity
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Chelmsford, ON9 May 2017
The job is fairly easy, especially if you like retail and sales. My biggest con for this job would be the amount of pressure management gives to sell "more bell". This is to be expected in sales, unfortunately you feel like you're never selling enough.
Pros
commission, excellent management
Cons
Pressure, no form of promotions

Fun place if good people, Company culture not the best
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON23 April 2017
A lot of pressure to sell, if you don't you are "costing the company money"

Don't value good customer service

Fun to work around technology and good people can make it a great experience

Customers can either be awesome or some of the worst you've had but I've had a lot of great experiences

The co-workers around me made it one of the best jobs I've ever had

Uninspiring retail environment
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Abbotsford, BC6 April 2017
Strict up-sale environment. If you don't sell mobile phone plans, you don't keep your job. This includes stores with no customers. Blame rolls downhill.

Management is uninformed and uninspiring.
Pros
nothing
Cons
bad pay, bad bonuses, bad managment

Disaster
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON25 March 2017
Extremely slow unless working at specific locations, does not compete well with the bigger competition. For students or people with flexible hours is perhaps best fit.
