Not great

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was hired as a customer service rep when I started at Bell. The customer service training was fantastic and I have taken those skills on to other positions. It was later merged with the sales dept. That's when things went downhill. Sales took presidence over service. Quotas had to be reached or you were fired. It didn't matter what the customer wanted.

It's okay if you can handle people yelling at you all day long.

Answer calls all day, pretty fast paced depending on your department. Management was pretty good, co-workers were the highlight of the job. Your stats are heavily monitored. You will be yelled at constantly by customers, patience and thick skin is necessary. Not enough tools to deal with angry customers right away. Good benefits.

Many changes in 30 1/2 years

Staying with a company for over 30 years provided many opportunities for learning several different jobs but the main focus was customer service. The rapport gained with regular customers was probably the most enjoyable part of job and I can't really say that there were too many difficulties as training was exceptional.

Intense workpae. Always meet the criteria of percentage. 6 minute call is the perfect call for bell;

ie take care of the bill , take care of telephone, take care or TV program and tech issues etc etc. the reason why nobody is happy with bell. Just connecting calls to another agent does not make the perfect call. For Bell it is fulfilling the quota and the percentage.

Toxic

Don't waste your time. Management go out of their way to try and belittle and bully you. Over 50% of staff are on stress leave and are forced to return due to corporate bullying tactics.

fun

The model of addiction etiology that best describes why people become addicted and how effectively to help them, is to start educating those who have not been exposed to addiction epidemic and focus more to those who are suffering from addiction already. For instance, most people used to think if you share the same bottle of water with someone who is HIV/AIDS positive, you will automatically get infected. But after many years of educating people in school and with the help of other government

Very large corporation where people are treated just like a number.

Company hires mostly vendors who they fail to provide adequate training to. The chances of errors and misinformation is extremely high. The company is very demanding of their employees.

Pros

Benefits and good wage.

Cons

Stacked ranking. High pressure to sell. Work life balance is not respected.

This was a very competitive environment

This was call center environment, where employee were rated on their sales. The job was selling and up selling products. the time was spent interacting with customers over the phone or if you were catering to business's most of the communication was don't on line.
