A good company to work for!

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I’ve been working for bell for over 2 years. I feel management really really makes or breaks the job and your ability to succeed is very much dependant on the quality of training you receive from your management!

Pros

Benefits, steady work, commission + hourly pay

Cons

Irate customers, a lot of mental strain, standing all day

Don’t get sucked in.

This company will say anything to snow you into thinking this is a career. It is not. Very deceptive company, no work/life balance and constant stress. They say no day is the same and they were right. The environment is a constant hot and cold atmosphere. If you sell, they like you.

Pros

Decent pay for the job

Cons

No work life balance, constant pressure to upsell, pressure to do what’s right for the company not the customer, no breaks

Brand has very bad reputation

People will scold you a team at you. Especially door knocking is very difficult in winter. Managers are good and supportive always helpful. But working condition very rough you will have no self esteem you have to bag customer to buy bell service.

Great place to work if you have good coworkers.

The people are definitely what make the job for me. I've had a team full of awesome coworkers and a team with some who wouldn't pull their slack or put very little effort in which made the job horrid. Most of the time, you're simply waiting around for customers to come in so you can sell them something. If the other person you're with for those 8 hours isn't very likable, you're going to spend a lot of time staring at your phone counting the minutes.The corporate culture can be very draining. There is a lot of kool-aid being passed out in district wide group chats which gets annoying.The job really comes down to both if your manager is a decent person and if you have a good team of people to work with.

Pros

Decent wage/comission

Cons

Sometimes the changes that corporate implement make no sense.

Good entry-level sales job

Good learning experience getting into sales. Decent pay if you can do your job and get sales. Wish they staffed better, they usually keep budgets super low

Pros

Hourly plus commission

Cons

Stressful, usually understaffed

Good starter job

No job security but a good cultural environment. People are nice and helpful. Some managers are just amazing, really good mentors. This company supports diversity big time. HRs are supportive too but overall the company is probably going down that you never know when they might lay you off.

Pros

Good culture, good people, good commission and benefits structure

Cons

Low job security, not much growth opportunity, don't keep fake hopes of getting somewhere even after achieving good numbers at sales

Not recommended for people who like job security.

I did not enjoy working for this company. Reaching your targets every month is stressful. I was warned about this job but did not listen. You'll feel pressured to be someone you are not. They should be ashamed of the personal improvement program. Putting an employee on this program before they have been working a half a year is extremely unfair it put unnecessary stress on me

Great Organaization

Bell is a great place to work and make money if someone workes at Sales Dept. But now lot's of option for the customers to lookup with Bell. Company should do something for Field Sales people because it's very hard to get 1 sale from door to door. And it's very hard job and people don't trust them, disrespecte the Bell rep. Thanks

Friendly co-workers with a stressful position

While this was my entry into the customer service field and I am grateful to the manager who hired me, I never felt like I was looking out for the customer's best interests. I was informed to not disclose certain things in contracts and other slightly shady things to try and get as much out of the customer as possible and I never felt comfortable doing that.

Poor management, bad company culture

The manager is way too target focused. He forced us to lie to the customers in order to get more sales. There is no job security. Store Manager is always the one who started the internal conflict. Store manager tried his best to please the regional manager.

Greedy people, toxic work environment

The management treats you like a commodity and not a person.. there is no work life balance.. and the co workers are extremely competitive.. the management people act like scavengers.. just hungry for money.. and expect you to be dishonest to meet targets. Would never like to work here again!

It's ok.

If you're willing to devote your time while at work and not at work, the benefits can be good along with the payout. There is constant overturn of employees and the company expects a lot out of their employees. There are always incentives and prizes to be won, in return for your soul. The company culture is good and there is almost a family mentality among reps which is good.

awesome group to work with, very stressful culture, too many meetings

The Monday meetings are killing everyone. from 12:00 to 2:30, endless target settings and pep talks. I do like the people I am working with, everyone is willing to help one another, the management is quit awesome if you don't consider just how much pressure both management and sales reps are under.

Good place to work. Good Pay. Competent management.

I learned a lot about sales culture in the telecommunications industry. It was a good job with decent perks. Great as a part-time job since it was located in a shopping mall.

Cons

Far from my place of residence.

Great place for New comers and freshers

Great band, carries vast majority of product line and services across the country, management is good, pay is good for nee comers and freshers. They look for machines, not you.
