Over worked and uninspiring

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Bell claims to have many opportunities for advancement but that seems to only be for those outside of their retail stores and certainly not for employees in more rural areas.

Best tech, and perhaps the best environment.

Amazing facilities, with a visionary approach. Working in an environment that pushes for innovation keeps the work fresh and interesting. Additionally attracts people from all facets of life, so doesn't take long to feel at home.

Don't work here, unless you're desperate for work

I don't recommend working here....Bell may run the "Lets Talk program...but they would mentally stress their staff with their stats. They have fired my colleagues over the years for their stats. The Managers/directors are liars.

Pros

Guaranteed paycheck/if you met stats for the month the payout could be great

Cons

Hours NOT flexible/working for a bunch of liars

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

Great place to work if you are an innovative thinker

I loved working at Bell! People were very open to innovative thinking and doing things a different way was encouraged. Those with initiative were always rewarded.

Pros

Room for advancement, innovative culture

Fun work place

Awesome job, great benefits . Great accessible location. Cafeteria and support on site . Unfortunately bell believes more in outsourcing than home grown talent

Pros

Great schedule and benefits

Cons

More than likely will get downsized and let go within 5 years

entreprise qui vous exploite avant de se débarrasser de vous dès que l'occasion se présente

entreprise à éviter , tu te donne a fond ou comme tu peux , sans aucun avantage (social / congé de 2 semaines /pression/ salaire minimum ...) tout ça sans perspective d'avancement ou de promotion qui reste une exclusivité au personnes qui on des affinités avec les décideurs et non selon les compétences

Pros

rien ne me passe à l'esprit en rédigeant ces lignes

Cons

salaire misérable, poste non syndiqué, pression constante pour les objectifs, pas de possibilité d'avancement, incompétence flagrante des gestionnaires, pause de 30 mn, travailler debout pendant tout le quart ...

Overall ok place to work, depends what department you get in.

Technician for Bell for 9 years now. started in consumer and moved to business. Company is always trying to get metrics on you and the way they measure is not realistic. Company service discount is ok, but things at Bell were always better in previous years. Departments are all being contracted out overseas or being wiped out, so the people left have a heavier workload as they amalgamate departments. time off is standard with 2 weeks vacation to start and then 3 weeks after probation period, then 4 weeks after 9 years, then 5 after 19 years or something. stock options to buy in but not as good as other companies like Telus. DCB pension like most companies today so depends on what you put into it. Overall they are ok but nothing special.

Pros

free cell phone(for technicians) 35% employee discount.

Cons

average pay(bad if living in high cost area), no advancement, unreasonable metrics

Don't stay there too long.

The job can be physically exhausting, carrying ladders, working at heights and in subzero temperatures. Just get enough experience and then leave. Little or no chance to get interviews in other Bell subsidiaries.(Bell Technical Solutions)

Environnement stricte

Milieu de travail très actif et cadre de travail très serré presque militaire mais grande possibilité carrière interaction avec la direction immédiate relativement rigide et contrôlante mais négociable.Malheureusement très peu de place à l'initiative et système de formation anémique. Il faut faire son chemin et avoir du caractère.

Pros

CAFÉ GRATUIT

Cons

PERMANENCE LONGUE À OBTENIR

Good For High school Grads.

As a field Tech. If you are new to the town in just couple of months you will be familiar with your towns map, like restaurants, what's trending how people talk, what age group is best to have conversation with, getting knowledge of how things workout in certain areas. On top of that you get to travel around the town on companies vehicle, know how to work at height, house prices nearby and much more.

Pros

Hourly wage 8 to 5 schedule most of the days, part-time weekends availability 👌, nice ops managers In windsor.

Cons

Not good for Full-Time your availability should be all day 8 to 9. Perfomance matrix in place, Decentralized system, hard to deal with various departments for a change that customer asks for, No internal promotions

Great if you don’t plan on having kids or plan on advancement

Diamond shaped organization, lots of middle management, some good bosses lots of re-orgs. Promise fast pace and new ways of doing things for a little while and in pockets there and in some groups for a year or two but heavy on the old way of doing things and political in the end most top mgmt or stuck doing things the same way for last 30yrs because it’s really a duopoly and no outside pressure to change get ready for the almighty RGU (revenue generating unit) the fancy term they give to treating customers like a faceless bag of money they raise prices to every qtr or so because no new products and have to increase revenue and profits

Pros

Nice coworkers if you have a nice group.

Cons

Long hours to get a head, don’t be surprised if they ask you to do unethical stuff.

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

Highly process oriented work environment

Highly process driven work environment. Expected to compromise on work life balance quite often. Too much structured decision making process which sometimes makes quick change or new ideas difficult or slow to implement.
