Used to be a utility run by technicians and engineers, but since deregulation of the industry has become a service provider and is run by accountants and business majors. Good for profits but not so great for the employees.
Pros
Job security in a union environment
Cons
Deteriorating working conditions

The atmosphere is terrible, the people who you work with make the job bearable. Too much emphasis is placed on the script you need to follow, making calls longer than necessary.
Pros
People who you work with
Cons
MGMT. creates horrible work conditions

Terrible job and workplace. Its supposed to be a big company and they expect great work ethic, but in return nothing is offered. I wouldnt recommend this company to anyone.

Very low pay. Less than minimum wage. Work culture is poor and management can replace you at any given time. They market this job like it’s amazing but once you see what it’s like on the floor it’s very unprofessional. They don’t even have enough computer chairs for their associates some people were using cafe chairs.
Pros
In all honesty there isn’t any.
Cons
You will work 80 hrs bi weekly just to make less than someone working at Tim hortons.

As a technician you work alone, unsupervised and are unionized. Company provided truck, tools, cellphone and laptop. Training is very good and up to date with current technology.Winter months are cold when working outdoors. Dress warm for those cold days.

Too much politician. People are thing to make sure their bosses are happy. Some store managers don't know how to be a store managers. They get mad if you don't lie to the customers to get the sales.

In a typical work day would report to dispatch shop and get list of jobs which could vary from cable replacement to simple pair replace. Would need to get tools and materials needed for the days work then off to the job site. For bigger jobs would call on a helper to assists aside from that primarily solitary work. Learned many skills in the 2 years I've been at Bell all to do with cable repair, most common would be climbing, confined spaces, bucket truck as well as many job specific tools and digital equipment. Management was great would check in with manager once to twice a week to verify all jobs are being completed and to check if anything was needed. Hardest part of the job was the access to some locations as not all telephone poles are within reach of bucket some where rather far of the beaten trail. Most enjoyable part of the job was being outside.
Pros
working outside, own truck, responsible for your actions
Cons
certian locations, shifts can go on for days

L'équipe est interessante. Mais Bell est à moitié syndiquée. On reste temporaire pendant longtemps (des années).
