Decent work place
Junior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) –  Halifax, NS20 May 2018
It was a nice place to work, although boring. They never have enough work for the students and typically will go a full month without a computer so they stick you with reading any reports they can find online which are not relevant to your job, just to keep you doing something.

Do not trust management
Network and VOIP Technician (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC19 May 2018
Bell can promise a great paying job where you hide in a corner and do menial work until you retire.

Be ready to dedicate your entire life to work, sacrificing all weekends, nights, and holidays to work for this company.

Don't trust the managers, they will stab you in the back and take all credit for your ideas.
Pros
Great pay, job security
Cons
No work life balance, backstabbing management

Extremely hard labour job some days and lots of work at high heights but the employer is great! The customers provide most of the problems and not the company itself.

Toxic culture avoid at all costs
Field Technician (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 May 2018
Everything you hear in the news about Bell sales reps are the same for all departments of Bell. This place is a toxic culture and you should avoid it all costs. They train you one way and expect you to do the exact opposite when you're actually out there on the job. Google Bell Technical Solutions and check out the thread on red flag deals about the company if you want more detailed info
Pros
Raise every 6 months
Cons
Everything else you could imagine and then some

Reasonable workplace at BTS
Senior Logistics Attendant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 May 2018
Although Bell provided me with a job, there are many cons compared to pros. The wage is very low to start, but has a reasonable grid for increase, however you could be making more elsewhere. Communication in the company is horrible, with a lot of preference for everything given to Quebec over Ontario. The head office etc is based out of Quebec so communication is VERY bad. So if you work in Ontario you get 1/2 a response or no response. Perks with the company are quite good if you shop at the Source. Benefit plan is not bad, but you have to wait 1 year to get it along with the retirement plan etc.. The Union is also horrible in the company in the ways of communication. Its run by Unifor BTS. Horrible representation at the top.
Pros
Share plan, perks
Cons
Horrible communication, horrible Union representation at upper level

Productive and fun workplace
Technician (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 May 2018
Bell can be an even better company if they tone down on the micro managing. The outsourcing is taking jobs away from people that are living in Canada. Hopefully bell will realize soon that saving a buck at the customer's expense is not always the greatest idea.

Good pay but nowhere to go
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON4 May 2018
Management was ok. I did enjoy helping out my customers but was dissapointed in the lack of freedom you had to do so. If you just care to make money, this is your place to be. Otherwise move on.

Account Resolution Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dorval, QC3 May 2018
Great place to learn how to sell and interact with customers in a professional way. Great place to learn billing systems and get general information on the latest telecom technologies. However it is a gigantic company and things change quickly and all the time and it is sometimes hard to keep up.
