Good pay and flexible hours
One of the things I appreciate about working for Bell Canada is the flexibility that the job provides. As a part-time sales commission employee, I am able to set my own schedule and work around other commitments, which has been incredibly helpful for me. Additionally, the pay structure is commission-based, which allows for earning potential that is directly tied to my sales performance. The training provided by Bell Canada has been thorough and helpful. I felt well-prepared to begin my job, and the ongoing support and resources have been valuable in helping me to improve my sales skills and techniques. I appreciate that Bell Canada invests in its employees in this way, as it demonstrates a commitment to their success and growth. Lastly, I have found the team environment at Bell Canada to be positive and supportive. Despite working as a commission-based employee, I feel that I am part of a larger team that is working together to achieve shared goals. This sense of camaraderie and support has made my work more enjoyable and has encouraged me to stay motivated and engaged. Overall, I would recommend Bell Canada as a great company to work for in a part-time sales commission role. The flexibility, training, and team environment are all positives that have contributed to my positive experience with the company.

Fun workplace
The management team is approachable and supportive, and they have created a positive and inclusive workplace culture. They are always open to feedback and suggestions for improvement, and they have implemented a number of employee-focused initiatives that have had a significant impact on morale and job satisfaction. The company places a high value on professional development, and they offer a range of training and career advancement opportunities for employees. This has been a great way for me to expand my skills and take on new challenges.

The team is really good, but bell as whole doesn't care
I was lucky to be a part of incredible individuals and a great team, but Bell treated employees disposable. Years of experience in retail space amounts to nothing, and when asked for a hike by people who worked there for 6-8 years nothing valuable was done, to rub salt on wounds, new hires are given the same wages and signing bonuses (which is great) but the energy is not seen when you have worked there for years.

Team made all the difference
Worked on a dead-end project/product, so my co-op would've otherwise been awful, but I was given the chance to work closely with the other co-ops that semester. We learned way more and were way more productive working together than alone.
Telecommunications Technician | Laval, QC | Jan 12, 2023
Couldn't care less about you
They promote how they keep there employees safe, but all they care about if the service is provided. They will make you work until 12 am, they will push you and push you if you let them.
ConsThey couldn't care less about the employees
Software Engineer | Mississauga, ON | Apr 12, 2023
Great work environment but boring work nature
Great team and people but the work is boring, slow, and doesn't use all the latest tech. Salary is parred with average and no huge benefits. Opportunities are limited with the tech stack and long meetings/unnecessary

Cloud Engineer | Montréal, QC | Apr 27, 2023
No social event, just work.
There were nothing about social's connection in the team. I did not meet a lot of people from my own team. It was all about work, that's all. A lot of benefits that you have to find on your own, zero HR's help to present you the Bell's benefits.
Sales Manager | Toronto, ON | May 26, 2023
Micro managed - unprofessional
Not worth your time and effort . There’s no room for growth in a reasonable time frame. Compensation including commissions do not add up and justify the effort and hours per week
Représentant des Ventes (H/F) | Quebec City, QC | Mar 3, 2023
Québec dans différents magasins et sur la route
Belle ambiance, payant mais stressant . Objectif de ventes parfois difficile à atteindre. Direction présente surtout pour les plans de restructurations
Veterinary Nurse | Leicester | May 27, 2014
Fun and forfilling work place
Every day is different. Some days there can be many emergencies, it can be busy and there can be a lot of unhappy owners worried about their pets. I have gained immense people skills and can solve situations, explain and go through problems with their pets in a compassionate and caring mannor. Veterinary practises are always very busy and many people can become stressed. I have always been good at handling work excellent and going with a situation and not taking it to heart. Other days can be quiet. I always utilise this time to catch up on paperwork or even find simple jobs, such as sorting stock cupboards etc. Every day is a learning day for me. Or days i can better my skills and become and even stronger emember of staff. I believe my opninion is valued as collegues takemy advice and value it. We have a lot of work expereince therefore it is my responsibility to teach them how a practise is run daily as well as giving them jobs to forfill. The hardest part of my job is talking to devistated owners whom are loosing or have lost their oets. I built up a respectible relationship with them and i beleieve they appreciate my kindness towards them. Ever part of my job is enjoyable,but id say the most rearding is helping these animals to get better and/or helping their owners to take better care of them.
Prosrelationship eith collegues. Having excellent pet care for my animals.
ConsBecause the team is so small often work with minimum staff.
Current position - Part-time bar work | United Kingdom | Sept 9, 2016
Fun and easy going workplace
A typical night shift can often start quite quietly as you begin the shift you start putting glasses away that have been left in the glass washer and then begin to serve more customers as it gets busier around 8pm-9pm. Going around and collecting glasses from around the inside and outside of the pub as well as empty ash trays from outside too. This was my first job and the management and fellow staff members were very kind to me and taught me how to pour pints properly, make (for example drinks like) JD and coke, change barrels and the draft pepsi. The hardest part would have to be on a particularly busy day (often Bournemouth home matches, family fun days and big football games ie, Euros) as you often have to try to manage your team, keep on top of making drinks and collecting glasses. The most enjoyable parts of the job are probably karaoke nights where its more fun and you feel more relaxed behind the bar.
Prosyou are allowed one alcoholic drink before shifts
Consfinishing at 1 am on Fridays and Saturdays

Would have been the 3rd Major Telco
BellTel was a very promising career choice for me as I was joining what wold have been the 3rd Major Telco player having been involved with the 2 incumbents. A typical day at work would involve getting updates from the Project Managers for reporting to relevant stakeholders at the start as well as the end of the work week. Management was very supportive and Roles and Responsibilities were clear enough so as not to sow confusion on who does what. My co workers were very much suited for their jobs as most were ex Telco employees coming from SMART, Globe, Digitel/Sun, Bayantel, etc. The hardest part was working under uncertain terms when Telstra pulled out and then the eventual sale to PLDT/SMART and Globe while the most enjoyable part was working for an elite team that would have been the Best IT Team in the Best Telco.
Prosfinancial reward, highly competent workforce
Conslimited benefits

Bell Consultancy
There does not appear to be a typical day at work and it really just depends on what is going on. Currently I am working with a creative designer / author on a web-based language education business and initially I knew very little about this field but in preparing the business plan one has to absorb a lot of relatively unfamiliar material - this I find fascinating, enjoyable and stimulating and I think the business plan is all the better for it. The hardest part of this particular exercise is making sure that the wishes and the inevitable "trade-offs" that go with an exercise of this nature are accurately and sufficiently reflected in the final plan.
Prosworking with clients to develop solutions to their challenges and issues
Consnot having someone to bounce ideas off can be a little challenging

Rewarding and Collaborative Workplace
From my experience at Bell so far, I have seen that the culture is one of learning, development, growth, hard-work (things move really quickly), and work-life balance. The leadership in my unit is positive and challenge each employee to see the broader business goals. My manager is excellent at understanding what additional responsibilities would help my overall career development and has helped me attain opportunities for more exposure to senior leadership.
ProsCompensation package, growth opportunity, trust, collaboration
ConsOffice location not easy to commute via transit, physical office not a lot of natural light
