  1.  

    Great learning experience but terrible training. The Union gets in the way of this being a great company to work for.

    I worked at Bell Technical Solutions part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was fun working alone at times and at your own pace, as long as you have pride in your work you would be fine.

    Cons

    Pay, Union, Managers, Bell Canada employees treating you like garbage, The fact your a number and everything revolves around your numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take it easy on your employees. Not all are slackers.

    I have been working at Bell Technical Solutions part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Guaranteed raises, independence, company vehicle and tools

    Cons

    Working EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND, very low starting wage, working late into the evening, little notice to be called in, not paid to be on call, the more skilled you are the more hectic your schedule will be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your greatest assest, and neglect and a lack of work/life balance have resulted in numerous disgruntled employees working for a pay check rather than to help the customers.

    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Bell Technical Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay, great people, complete job autonomy, company vehicle to take home (for a very nominal fee of $100/pay). The more motivated you are to meet the core objectives, the more money you can make.

    Cons

    Working out in the cold, can appear that the inmates (technicians) run the show. If you find a professional balance of management skill, you will be even more successful as they will want to work for you (Unionized so that should explain it!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simply, adapt a more fair approach to corrective action towards management.
