    Pros

    Bell canada discount 35% off your cell bill!
    5-35 pcnt off all items in store.
    Good training
    Young staff.
    Ability to move up if motivated!

    Cons

    Base pay is very low. If you suck at sales, you can't make a living unless you are at home with your parents still:)
    If you are not at a "aa" store, you don't get much traffic and therefore your commissions are not high.
    Not being at a high traffic store also means you don't get the most popular handsets when selling cell plans. This makes it hard to m ake good "spiffs" which are immediate bonuses added to your cheques. Between spiffs and commissions over two weeks at Xmas you can rake in another grand if you are good. But if you are not in a higher traffic store, this won,t happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your POS system upgraded...it slows down your sales staff and therefore your customer satisfaction level.

    Pros

    Good work experience, good pay if you are willing to be aggressive and put in the effort otherwise very few positive

    Cons

    Incompetent management, poorly trained coworkers.
    Senior management does little to instill confidence in employees
    lack of any direction at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop continuously putting incompetent, uneducated people into management positions. The company suffers as a result. Too often length of employment is rewarded rather than competency
