Cons

Management is sometimes slow on reviewing work, processes change very often, late hours (but worth it)

Better planning for associate/staff exits

    Pros

    The only pro is that they are a popular brand that will look "good" on your resume.

    Cons

    From my first day there were problems with this company, and one of the most devastating mistakes and slips ups (and believe me there are many) is that they neglected to pay us for not only our first pay but also the second!!!! Yes that's right - these crooks did not pay us on payday stating that the person who inputs the pay left on bereavement which was a lie as I found out from someone else that this person was in fact on vacation. Two weeks later it happened once again!!! That's the whole reason why people work - to get paid! But these repulsively incompetent (which is definitely a cultural thing in this company) liars continued to make up excuses for their mistakes instead of just admitting that they were at fault. Everybody there (Virgin Mobile, which is owned by Bell and is the same entity) has experienced payroll problems constantly. The company is continuously laying off huge segments of their workforce and sending these jobs to the Philippines where customers consistently complain that they cannot speak English properly. The morale is low and management is useless. The company continues to make it more and more difficult to get the monthly bonus in order to pocket that money themselves. They are a monopoly who are now cowarding at the prospect of having Verizon introduced into the Canadian market which would generate more jobs in Canada and are involved in a fierce fear mongering campaign against Verizon in order to sway public opinion in their favor as well as pressuring their employees to do their bidding for them. They are a monopoly which needs to be brought down. I would not recommend any one to work there or to become a customer of this corrupt, incompetent joke-of-a-company who continuously lies to their employees, robs them of their pay and promotes people who do not deserve it. Stay away!

    Advice to Management

    You all need to be replaced with people who have integrity.

    Pros

    Great company if you wish to learn sales and service for a couple of years. 98 percent of the people whom work around you are awesome.

    Cons

    You will find out even the elite will no doubt have a hard time attaining their targets on a constant basis. Example three consecutive months; pretty depressing. It seems like George Cope is another Micheal Sabia;, all for the shareholders even on the backs of the employees. Bell Canada raised the bar to high in sales.

    Advice to Management

    You should try, keep your employees happy. Motivate them not crush them with heavy targets.
